2006-H1 ATI R500 High end ATI graphics chip for XBox2 built in a 90 nm process. Part of a new generation, comparable to R600 for the PC.
Early on reported to "have 10 times higher geometry and 4 times higher pixel performance compared to the RADEON X800 XT" (believe it if you want to).
May support WGF and Pixel and Vertex shaders 3.0 with 128 bit precision. Also known as Xenos.
