AMD today introduced its next generation mobile graphics technology, the AMD Radeon HD 6000M series, delivering AMD’s highest performing notebook graphics for those who want to experience games, entertainment, and productivity on the go. Harnessing AMD’s second-generation of Microsoft DirectX 11-capable mobile graphics architecture, the AMD Radeon HD 6000M series provides users with:
  • Models offering up to 1.3 teraFLOPS of compute power for an unrivaled gaming experience on up to six displays using AMD Eyefinity technology.
  • AMD HD3D technology for the ultimate in stereo 3D entertainment.
  • AMD EyeSpeed technology for improved video and application performance.



Notebooks featuring the new graphics technology are previewed at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in the Wired: Make a Scene booth, located in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“One year ago AMD claimed the title of undisputed technology leader in mobile graphics performance and since then we continue to pave the way for mobile computing innovation,” said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, GPU Division, AMD. “With the introduction of the AMD Radeon HD 6000M series, AMD’s best just got better by cementing its leadership in notebook graphics. Through our feature-rich line of top-to-bottom next-generation notebook graphics, including AMD’s fastest performing notebook graphics processor, we’re enabling a superior visual computing experience in virtually every segment.”

AMD Radeon HD 6000M series graphics represent powerful support for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with existing and upcoming 2011 AMD Mainstream notebook platforms planned to feature true “Eye-Definition” Gaming with DirectX 11 support and AMD Eyefinity technology, plus amazing AMD HD3D Technology—all designed to accelerate mobile performance.

the spec of the 6900 chip sounds pretty good for a mobile GPU

960 Stream Processing Units
48 Texture Units
128 Z/Stencil ROP Units
32 Color ROP Units
Engine clock speed: 580-680 MHz
Memory data rate: 3.6 Gbps
Memory bandwidth: 115.2 GB/sec

duh its the same as the 5800 series nothing new here

5800 mobile gpus were 5700 desktop class performance 6900 are nothing new either

aka 6900m is a 6850 with slower clocks so expect slightly better tessellation performance over 5800m but nothing else changes

I had kind of assumed it would be like 6850 vs 5770, with multiple games showing up to 30% increase in frame rate, i know nothing new but still a nice jump in speed if it were true.

But i admit i don't know the full spec of both the 58xx and 69xx mobility parts so was just guessing based on what little i knew.

@btarunr: looks like you'll have to replace that ATi badge on the news posts with the new AMD one, unless you're trying to keep the 'legacy' alive.:laugh:

Most laptops don't have 30" of desktop space to drive.

sounds closer to an underclocked 6850 vs a 5750 performance wise, as the mobility 5870 essentially is a desktop 5770 @ 5750 speeds.

still this should be around 30% faster than a Mobility 5870 I think, and that's a whopping great amount of performance for a laptop alright, especially in CFX.
