    Not according to Fud, I also think his sources are useually spot on. Southern Islands part Evergreen and part Northern Islands with the main feature being MIMD shaders in my opinion. I believe AMD want's to test them out before they eventually release there new Northern Islands Design.

    If you read between the lines correctly, MIMD shaders won't come with SI, but NI (possibly in 2011).

    More realistically it will be just the opposite with Evergreen type shaders and archetectural changes from N.Islands for other parts of the GPU.

    Well here's some insight from 3Dgameman: http://www.3dgameman.com/news/2010/03/31/atis-next-generation-plans-outed

    Basically the same blabla as all the other news site...

    This what Charlie wrote on the SemiAccurate website.

    IMO, even if it were possible at this point to continue on with completely new architecture, I'd wonder if ATI would hold off until it's definitely ready - otherwise, they might end up in the Fermi boat as well. It would be a better marketing strategy on their part to attempt another "evolution" of the R700, while continuing new work in the background.

    New architecture tends to turn into a major hurdle, speedbump, sobriety check-point, filabuster or what-have-you . . . nVidia is being reminded of that right now, and ATI were last reminded of this with the HD2000 series. If you're considered to be in the lead, sandbag and continue with R&D.


    Regarding the dual-core rumour - that's been circulating around ATI cards since the 3870x2 was first hitting the rumor mill.

    Although, I do believe a multi-core GPU would really be the next logical evolution of the hardware.

    Well HD 5800's came from HD 4800's, and that came from HD 3800's and that came from HD 2900. I believe back them in the 2900's time frame, many though ATI would release a completely new GPU design in around the HD 5800's time frame, but they didn't, they took the best from HD 4800 and made it much better.

    Now I am thinking about this rumoured ATI Code Name Southern Islands (40nm) this may very well be categorized as the HD 6800 series believe it or not. It’s already rumoured to be part CN Evergreen and part CN Northern Island. If this combination proves to be very fast, much faster than HD 5800 series, AMD may go this route and keep its pure Northern Island new design for HD 7800 series.

    Perhaps no re-fresh but instead release code name Southern Islands instead. They talk of a possible Q2 2010 release, that goes with ATI's GPU release trends of the past.

    But knowing how these big corporations work, they will try and milk a product for as long as possible while still staying extremely competitive.

    It was posted before April Fools, though the lack of a picture of the backside of the card has me weary. It could just be a 5970.

    Why 3 x DVI slots? I rather have at least 2 x HDMI.

    Adapters work, but yeah it doesn't make much sense. If there was a VGA port on it, then we'd know for sure it's a joke.

    With a 5850 sized cooler I can do 1060mhz just fine with good temps and a not too aggressive fan profile. With a 5970 sized cooler on a single GPU I think it could easily be done. I digress, the Asus 5870 Matrix will be out any day, and I'm quite certain that will do 1100mhz using its cooler and Asus voltage control.

    No, it can be done with stock cooling, this may be another minor re-spin and these GPU's run cooler at higher clock rate. All I know is 1.10 GHz is going to be an easy Fermi killer :cool:

    larger fan = lower RPMs ... (and offers the same amount of cooling)

    and .... lower RPM = less noise :D

    Well, i remember HD4770 running at over 1GHz speeds using stock cooler. Similar was with HD4890. So nothing unusual with that...

    nvidia wait a year to release cards can beat ATI 58xx, maybe the need 10 years to made something can beat ATI 68xx

    I'm still wondering where Intel is at with Larrabee. ATI > NVIDIA > ATI > NVIDIA > ATI is the natural progression of things--Intel is the x-factor.

    Last we heard of Larrabee it was canceled.

    No one really knows what is going on with it.
