    But really the 6870 replaces the 5770, i would say that's a nice jump in power this generation.

    Disagree. The 6850/6870 are MIDRANGE CARDS!!! They replace the 5750/5770. This has been stated REPEATEDLY. The 6950/6970 will launch in November to replace the 5850/5870.

    Did you not read any reviews? You couldn't be more wrong.

    Pretty much. Not so sure about the last two.

    As far as i had read i thought that was the way it was going to go and i think the 5670 to 5770 is an ok jump in power for the low end although i don't know if they will fit with the pricing, i geuss only time will tell.

    There's no 5650 though.

    So it goes like this:
    5970 - 6990?
    5870 - 6970
    5850 - 6950
    5770 - 6870
    5750 - 6850
    5670 - 6770 (rebranded from 5770?)
    5570 - 6750 (rebranded from 5750?)
    5550 - 6670?
    etc.

    The 6000 generation seems to be a development FOR THE BETTER of their naming. No more specific series with having TOO MANY cards (3 like the 5800 series or more: like 4800 series) - 6990 would be an exception if this would push through as it is a dual-gpu solution - and no more specific series with only ONE card.

    3870 just only matching up HD 2900 XT in terms of performance is misleading. That's what the 3870X2 is for, the 3870 wasn't the best of its generation (like the HD 2900 XT was for the HD 2000 series).

    I failed on that one, i assumed both the 400 sp cards were 56xx, i think you are right on the last ones in that list although i know nothing about a 6670.

    Lol, how wrong you can be, you missed out the most important single factor (or chose to), and that is that it is significantly faster, and that is why people will upgrade to it, how do you think two HD 6850's (think HD 5750 replacement in placement terms) in Crossfire can beat/match a GTX480 and an HD5970 for performance on half the price or so?

    Literally, lets screw the video card code names, AMD's just took a dump and mind !&#@# all of you basically.

    You all are in a arguing trance, as we speak, debating, and debating what you debated. :roll:

    Look its just the perfect time for everybody to speculate and debate, some people dont know, some people do, I dont even know how to post this without sounding like im debating 25 different GPU code names, While AMD debates to us, there naming scheme.

    Id just say, Keep it simple,

    They basically raised all Numeral Values of there 6000 series naming schemes up one.

    So AMD says, ohh, were ganna name these supposedly 6700 cards, to 6800 cards, because there just that fast, and we want to make room for more low end video cards.

    Everything just bumped up a level on there 6000 series naming scheme, there going to have a full 6900 series now, and there will be 6890's and 6990's :p.
    bear jesus says thanks.

    :laugh::roll: true

    One thing it has definatly done is make people talk more about AMD and their cards so in a way it has been a good thing just to keep people talking about them.

    Looks like the 6 series from AMD and the mythical 5 series from Nvidia are just going to be transition parts anyways. Cards released for competition's sake. I'm going to be pursuing my other hobbies and not be wasting my money on computer parts for a while. Once 28nm hits, I may become more interested again. Then again, it all depends on what Cayman actually is...

    *If people are still confused by a naming scheme, they need to learn how to read or just go buy a console and leave computer building to people who can read.


    VV That's rather obvious. ;)

    well think about it, juniper isn't being replaced so of course barts isn't a replacement for something that's not beign replaced.

    juniper is being rebranded so barts is merely a midrange market segment replacement not a juniper replacment.

    it doesn't change the fact that when people are refering to juniper they mean the midrange of the 5000 series and when they're talking about barts, they mean the midrange of the 6000 series.

    is barts more expensive than juniper at launch? yes, does that suddeny make barts not a midrange? no. it just means that nvidia isn't offerening enough competition in that segment for amd to price barts lower and it doesn't seem like they will be for a while yet. So why not reap the price benefit?

    According to the slides Juniper is not being rebranded but continued. If more 5700 series are made available after the 6000 series launch they were not rebranded.
