    9500GT > GT120
    9800GTX > 9800GTX+ (process shrink, slightly higher clock rate)
    9800GTX+ > GTS 150 > (revised) GTS 250
    G210 > G310

    Disclaimer: I'm referring to AMD, Retailers that will market the products as 32nm, and some unfortunate poor bastards who will buy the cards thinking the'll get something entirely new. Not anyone in this thread >_>

    Meh, bring on the HD7970 ASAP please.

    3560x1920 is quite straining on a single HD6970.

    I wonder if a HD5670 can max out BF3 at this resolution......:p

    I would like to point out HD 6670 6650 is a VLIW5 architecture and are different from the information we have on HD 7670 which is a more advanced VLIW4 architecture.

    Furthermore, the core count on HD 7670 are 768 stream processor cores and is on TSMC 28nm HPL node, the HD 6670 however, have 480 stream processor cores and is on TSMC 40 nm node.


    Right off the bat that graph from chiphell have misleading/missing info on a number of upcoming HD 7000 series of gpu.


    I would like Mr Btarunr of TechPowerUp to review these indisputable discrepancies. This so call graph from a certain user on Chiphell is nothing but to spread fud.

    I think AMD should stick with GDDR5 for now because of whats goin on with the Rambus Corp.

    From what info is available, AMD use a desktop version chip and lower it's clocks and vcore and use it a a mobile version.

    Ex: desktop : Radeon HD 6670 with 480 Stream Processing Units @ 800 MHz
    Mobile : AMD Radeon HD 6770M 480@675 / 725MHz to Radeon HD 6630M 480@485MHz

    Same with HD 5000 series
    Desktop: Radeon HD 5570 400@650Mhz
    Mobile : Mobility Radeon HD 5770 400@650MHz to Mobility Radeon HD 5650 400@450-650MHz

    Same architecture, same node for mobile and desktop version.

    It is within reason to assume that if the mobile HD 7000 series use TSMC 28nm HPL node then the desktop big brother also use the same architecture and node. In this case TSMC 28nm HPL, and not a re-brand from the 40nm node.



    Edit: Now that I've check that chipHell link. That poster said:
    "1, 凡是 H7XXX命名的显卡全部都是马甲"

    translation: 1, all the graphics card that are named H7XXX are re-brands.

    That statement should reveal the poster's true intentions right there.

    Tell You the Truth Im not too worried about them. We Will see them when they come out. The sites posting this crap are just trying to get numbers, just like how TV networks are always posting negative bullshit about wuts goin on around the world.

    The first documented case of "rebranding" was the change name "Vanta" to "TNT2 M64" because it did not change the pcb; the silicon or anything meaningful.It was just marketing.

    Banshee do not count because it was different than a Voodoo 2 or Voodoo rush
