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.

6xxx is just a stepping stone for AMD, and they can't be asked to redevelop an entire line of GPU's again from scratch, hence the Nvidia style rebrand.

wth are you on about? a 5770 hasn't been rebadged to a 6850 :slap:

I think you are confused, 68** series is to replace the mid-range segment where the 57** was before it! they are not rebadged 57** series cards.

this is one of the reasons some people hate Nvidia amd does not need to do the same
Sorry I thought you were having a shot at AMD for renaming in your first statment :confused: ( Didn't really make much sense )

And least the 68xx are a proper upgrade compared to what Nvidia are doing

Why rebrand it for the russian market ?

Are they saying russian people will buy it now it has a different name. It just doesn't make any sense why.

Desperate AMD:laugh: delays on the 69** are due to them sucking compared to the 480 and now 580, they are going to have to break the 1000 core barrier to compete, same old AMD/ATI, clock high and hope for the best.:shadedshu

I can see this thread going Pete Tong pretty quickly.

This is a strange, strange development. Surely Sapphire would be required under contract with AMD to name the cards they produce correctly? Would they even bother doing this without AMD's approval for the few extra $$ they might get?
Makes me wonder whether it's actually some dodgy businessman re-badging them himself - without Sapphire or AMD's knowledge.

I believe this is similar to Sapphire releasing the 'Chinese-only' Radeon HD 4860 (which was a hacked down 4890) a couple of years back (that, ironically got sold in North America eventually). Sapphire receives permission to do this itself, including support.

I did not know about that one. Thanks.

I still can't see the point of doing this kind of thing for one particular market. Seems like more effort than it's worth.

Hey, we're not always the bad guys.
We gave China secret nuclear technology in exchange for lead-tainted baby toys and poisonous pet food. That has to count for something !! lol
