AMD Radeon HD 6770 and 6750 Video Card Specs Leaked

Postby Apoptosis » Mon Sep 27, 2010 12:21 pm

Engadget has posted up some leaked info on some of the upcoming AMD video cards:

Alright AMD, we still haven't forgiven you for burying the glorious name that was ATI, but if your next GPU refresh is as mighty as these numbers indicate, we might at least let you in from the doghouse. A slide detailing two flavors of the upcoming 40nm Barts chip has sprouted up from two independent sources online, and it shows some appreciable gains between generations. The new HD 67x0 cards appear manifestly speedier than their predecessors -- with faster clocks, more texture units, and more ROPs -- but the fun really gets going when you compare them to the HD 5870 and 5850, AMD's previous high-end cards. Memory bandwidth and pixel fillrate are identical between the HD 6750 and 5850, while the HD 6770 even manages to beat the formerly imperious 5870 in a couple of areas. Of course, this is all still unconfirmed information, but considering that Barts is only an "upper midrange" chip that's already stepping on the toes of last year's finest, we feel safe in expecting some pretty big things from the flagship Cayman silicon when it lands -- which will be soon if all these leaks and rumors are anything to go by.

Yeah, I was just looking at that. The 6770 looks to be only lacking one set of stream processors and a smaller subset of texture units and that's it. Let's hope that doesn't hurt it too much, otherwise these are going to be great cards. :)

I'm keen. My 4890 is starting to get a bit tired.

Not bad. I'm looking forward to seeing the HD 6870's specs. Overall, however, I think the HD 7000 series will be a more significant release since that comes with a die shrink.
