Sapphire HD 5550 Rebranded to HD 6390 for Russian Market

After the Radeon HD 6800 series, the rest of AMD's Northern Islands family of GPUs seem to be taking their own sweet time making it to the market. With the HD 6900 series almost certain to be off its November 22 launch date, lower-end GPUs slated for early 2011 are still far away. Meanwhile Sapphire reportedly took the opportunity to rebrand the existing "Redwood" based Radeon HD 5550 to "Radeon HD 6390", in a bid to make some monies in Russia.

The Radeon HD 6300, at least the HD 6350, HD 6370 are reserved for an upcoming GPU codenamed "Caicos", its AMD reference board even made it through a casual photo-session. The HD 5550 and HD 6390 were found to have the same device IDs. An older version of GPU Caps Viewer detects it as HD 5550, while the latest version sees it as HD 6390. The HD 5550 is based on the 40 nm "Redwood" GPU, it has 320 out of 400 stream processors enabled, and a 128-bit wide memory interface to typically connect to GDDR3 memory. Some premium models also feature GDDR5 memory.

AMD Cedar Reference Design Board Pictured

AMD's entry-level graphics processor in its DirectX 11 compliant generation, the Radeon HD 5000 series is codenamed "Cedar". This GPU is expected to be half as powerful as the "Redwood" GPU, with an expected 200 stream processors, 64-bit GDDR5/GDDR3 memory interface, and DirectX 11 compliance. It will make for two initial product SKUs: the Radeon HD 5400 series (probably Cedar with GDDR3 memory), and Radeon HD 5500 series (probably Cedar with GDDR5 memory). There are three models slated for release later this month: Radeon HD 5450, Radeon HD 5550, and Radeon HD 5570.

A low-profile reference design engineering sample's picture made it to our friends at Arab Hardware. The picture reveals a low-profile design which is slightly longer than the PCI-Express interface itself, keeps the black PCB color theme for the HD 5000 series going, and uses a tiny GPU cooler. DVI-D and DisplayPort connectors are located on the card, while a full-height bracket can expand the connectivity with a D-Sub connector. Products based on the Cedar GPU are expected to be positioned well within the $100 mark, and aimed at media-centric home users and full-time HTPCs.
