    Looks like a good card. Now i wonder why it needs 2 six pin power connector as tech seems to be getting more power efficient by generation(yes its a 40nm) but anyways....
    Could it be more powerful then the 5830 or maybe it'll match the 5850 once overclocked. LOL (hoping too much), hmmmm time will tell...

    Hoping to see this one on reviews.

    +1

    If it indeed turns out to be true though, AMD has already done something very stupid on the very first cards branded "AMD"!:shadedshu

    core config: 640:40:32 and 256bit bus, shader is 4D rather than r600's 5D and texture map unit is the same as 5770 but rops increase from 16 to 32. i believe this is actual design that trying to grab back mid range market from GTX 460

    only similar in shader core number, the rest is complete change.

    if that's true, the 6770 should have quite a nice performance bump from the 5770.

    30-35% at a push, what do you think?

    well spank my ass and call me a bitch! im starting to think amd does these "leaks" on purpose. when we wanted fermi info all we had was speculation no leaked pics nada, but hd5XXX and hd6XXX info is plentiful. i think its on purpose

    fudzilla and semiaccurate but since it's close to NDA i think these source had been locked already

    it is estimate to be only 5% less than 5850

    Agreed. I think the HD6000 are going to be a great performance boost, and a nice testing bed for some of the Northern Islands tech. I just hope the specs are true.

    Definately going to have to sig this. :D

    IDK if I consider FUD & Semi as reputable sources...but thanks for the info none the less. Hopefully it is (semi)accurate. :)

    Of course it's on purpose!

    Cards are shipping out now to OEMs, etc, so they give out info beforehand, almost ALWAYS!


    Problem comes in when someone knows cards are going out, then trys to get some extra traffic with made-up stories!

    I love the idea of puting the vrm's on the other side of the core, i have a 4870 and vrm temp is one of the major reasons i removed the stock cooler but i have high hopes for this new layout really improving the vrm temp.

    I would be even more happy if the 6870 had a vapour chamber that covered the vrm's... maybe even one that covers the core, memory and vrm's with fins covering the full length of it like the 5970 but copper.... i am hoping for too much.

    All I want is to see 68XX/69XX pics and specs finally.

    i think the vrms in the back is sheer genious, in the past they have always been primarily in the fron underneath the fan making little to no airflow thus running hot. even with the heated are from the core blowing over them they should keep much cooler. now with this cards specs if it allows software voltage control then this card is equipped to be a powerhouse, lets hope they slam good memory on it that clocks up to 1500mhz and this may be enough to make me switch back to the red team

    I kno right we can sit here and speculate all we want but almost everything we know right now isn't solid.

    hd6000 has a new name to replace old

    HD6990, dual core, replace HD5970
    HD6970, Cayman XT, replace HD5870
    HD6950, Cayman Pro, replace HD5850
    HD6870, Barts XT
    HD6850, Barts Pro, these two replace HD5830 to against GTX460 1G/768MB
    HD6770 and HD6750 still use Juniper XT and Juniper LE chip

    Perhaps it's not the final name, but it's the latest at least.:)

    Oh, wasn't aware of AMD's marketing dept. has finally lost last shreds of sanity.
    *shrug*
    And from the same pics I can tell the VRM are not "digital" (ie. Volterra), instead they use DrMOS and the config is atleast 4+1+1 or possibly 4+1+1+1.

    If we're confused, just think about hoe the average consumer is going to feel who knows less about computers than we do! Hopefully these 2 6pins are just for testing because having 2 would indicate a pretty large power consumption which would mean 'Turks' (6500 series) is going to be the 'new' mainstream and it seems the 6700 series is going to be pretty power (and power consuming) seeing where the numbers for the 6700 series is going

    This is a tessellation reworked Cypress and ultimately a Cypress successor. Turks is going to be the Juniper successor keeping the same bus width and GDDR5. Cayman is probably going to be the only chip with a real NI flavor since it's going after the GF100 while Barts is most likely a GF104 killer.

    *Looks at the pics btarunr posted*
    *Looks at his HD 5770*
    WTF? :wtf:
    The cooler looks similar...other than that...
    FUD or not, in that pic they haven't got rid of the nasty DVI connector on the 2nd expansion bracket. Instead of two DPs, why not one DVI, save the DPs for eyefinity...better cooling for the extractor type coolers...
    And 1 CF connector? :confused:

    Looking forward to seeing the 5870 Version.
