I really starting to like Ati's naming scheme, the higher the number the higher the performance. Nice and straight forward
Keep it up Ati

ATI Redwood and Cedar expected in Q1
2010 for mainstream and value DX 11
ATI/ AMD has launched all its DirectX 11 products planned for 2009 and in 2010 there should be at least two chips and three products to launch.
By Q4 2009 AMD launched Hemlock dual-GPU card, 5970, Cypress XT 5870, Cypress PRO â€" 5850 as well as Juniper XT - 5770 and Juniper LE 5750.
Q1 2010 should bring two new chips and three new cards. The mainstream market will get Redwood XT, a 40nm DX11 chip that should take over the mainstream market from 4770 and 4670 and the second Redwood simply called PRO will replace 4650 in the mainstream market.
We would not be surprised if Redwood ends up with 56x0 name. The value market will get a new chip called Cedar, also...

One of the most impressive parts of the card is its power circuitry, which is entirely digital and spread across the PCB. The GPU is powered by four Volterra VT1157SF digital PWMs controlled by a Volterra VT1165MF voltage regulator. As if that's not enough, there are provisions for a fifth phase, should AMD release a faster version of the 5870 later down the line.
