AMD Radeon HD 6000 Card Pictured... maybe? [speculation]

Quote:
An unnamed Radeon HD 6000 series card has been pictured at Chiphell. Kind of, anyway. Half of the card has been cropped out. The first thing worth noticing is a somewhat bland, boxy, yet elegant, cooler, with a massive fan.

The card also seems to be fairly long - around the same length as a HD 5870.

Radeon HD 6870 faster than GTX 460[FUD]

Quote:
The latest that we have gathered about AMD's controversial new graphics cores, codenamed Barts (not Simpson ed.) claim that Radeon HD 6870 should easily be faster than a Geforce GTX 460 1GB.

This also implies that this card should be priced slightly higher than a Geforce GTX 460 1GB, so we expect that Radeon HD 6870 should cost around €250 / $250 USD if not a few bucks cheaper.

Could it be? Only 11 days until the world knows what's under the hood of AMD's new 6k range of graphics cards.

NDA paperwork is starting to come through and it looks like the 22nd is cemented into history as the launch of the AMD 6000 range of graphic cards. While we don't have exact model numbers, our understanding is that the PRO and XT flavours will be coming in, which should carry the 6850 and 6870 names…

AMD Radeon HD 6800-series benchmarked (bit-tech)

More details of AMD's up-coming Radeon HD 6850 and 6870 cards have leaked, and this time we've got some hard numbers - albeit ones that don't paint the new devices in a particularly good light.

Chinese-language tech site XFastest.com claims to have got its hands on some of AMD's as-yet unreleased 6000-series Radeon HD cards, and has run them through 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark06 benchmarking suites to see how well they stack up against their predecessors.

Before we get into the numbers, it's worth mentioning at this point that these are preliminary results that come from possibly unfinished hardware and…

AMD Radeon HD 6870, 6850 benchmarked ahead of schedule (hexus)

Quote:
With the unveiling of AMD's Radeon HD 6000-series GPUs now just around the corner, web-based leaks are coming thick and fast.

The latest, published by Chinese website xfastest.com, could be the most significant to date as it includes benchmarks for two upcoming products; the Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850.

Both GPUs have been caught on camera in recent weeks, but whilst card specifications are merely conjecture at this point, the early benchmarks suggest that the new Radeon HD 6800-series won't be a direct successor to current 5800-series parts.

According to the supposed pre-release 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark06 numbers, the new products are outperformed by previous-generation equivalents…

The chip that was supposed to replace Radeon HD 5770 and HD 5750 and that mysteriously ended up with Radeon HD 6870 and Radeon HD 6850 moniker has finally got its clock. It runs at 900MHz.

As we speak AMD is telling chosen press representatives about the specifics of the chips and how they plan to dominate the word. We still don't see many ATI Radeon HD 5870 owners to be that hot for AMD Radeon HD 6870. I guess the message is that AMD's Radeon is…

Much has been made of AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 6000-series architecture - codenamed Northern Islands - but if you're still wondering what exactly is in store in terms of products, here's how it's shaping up.
A combination of recent leaks, rumours and speculation have the Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850 launching at the tail end of next week.
Based on the Barts core and believed to be arriving as the new mid-range crop, both products appear to have strong performance credentials, with early benchmarks going as far as to suggest that the Radeon HD 6870 offers close to 50 per cent more grunt than...
More of the same but I would say this article is a little better than the others.
AMD Radeon HD 6000 Slides Leaked

Quote:
The source of most early Radeon HD 6000 series leaks - Napoleon from Chiphell - has now leaked what seems to be official AMD AIB Briefings. It is worth noting that these slides are from as early as August 2010, and some of the information may have changed. The first thing worth noticing that only three new products are mentioned - Barts, Cayman and Antilles - with no reference of rumoured entry/mainstream chips Turks and Caicos. As we know Barts will be the first to release, in October, aimed above the GTX 460. Cayman will be above the GTX 480/470 and will release in November. Antilles, with a December 2010 release, will be an unchallenged flagship…

Barts Die Shot and Drivers Leaked

With just one week to go to the release of Radeon HD 6800 series, based on Barts, substantial leaks and information are finally starting to appear. A Chiphell poster has leaked blurred picture of a Barts die. Like Juniper, it is rectangular in shape, but rotated 45 degrees, like Cypress, and features a very similar package. This is no surprise, as Barts is pin-compatible with Cypress. The Barts die is compared to Cypress, and a rough die size is posted (albeit with dubious measurement methods) of 230 mm2. Additionally, a Radeon HD 6800 driver has leaked at Station-Drivers…

AMD CEO confirms next-gen Radeon launch

The last rumor predicting the launch date of AMD's Radeon HD 6000 series pointed to a vague November release. However, AnandTech noticed that AMD CEO Dirk Meyer was quite a bit more specific during yesterday's earnings call: "We will be launching our second-generation DX11 graphics offerings next week." Well, that settles it.

Of course, retail availability will lag the official launch. Meyer only committed to...

There probably going with a new reference design, since they created it with the 5970 Black Edition. (The Fan In The Middle).



But the 4870,4890,and other cards had the fan in the middle also but they were Sea Weed Designs.
