Radeon HD 6870 goes full monty

GPU with AMD logo

The guys from it168.com have posted a picture of the new Radeon HD 6870 board, but this time without the cooler which means that finally we can see the PCB.

The card uses 4-phase VRM and comes with eight memory chips placed on the front of the PCB. According to the info so far, the new Barts GPU is pin compatible with Cypress so some AIB's might even go for that option, and we might see cards that look a lot like the HD 5870, PCB wise. The GPU itself is placed diagonally, something that we've seen on Cypress, and this time AMD made sure that its logo is is the one on the GPU.

The card needs two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors and features two DVI, one HDMI and two mini DisplayPort outputs. If all goes well and according to recent plans, the Barts equipped cards should be officially launched next week.

Definitely one of AMDs (or even ATIs for that matter) largest GPU dies to date

What is that "Hong Kong" coin? Totally useless for size comparison. They should have used euro or dollar coin.

I think he is being sarcastic to Fuad saying it is gonna be the biggest chip ATI ever made.

I think I'm gonna have to give the sarcasm a rest, not exactly easy to detect over the net : /

Also on Fudzilla, don't trust anything what Fuad Abazovic "reports" about ATI.
All he does is unfarily reports news about ATI products.


I'm neither an ATI or a nVidia fanboi.
I expect an honest opinion/report from Fudzilla reports.
But that ain't gonna happen especially with the Graphics Cards category with Fuad.


So, better to wait till the cold hard facts come out.
I read Fudzilla only because of small tibits of news to see what's new.
However, I don't trust the content written by Fuad Abazovic pretty much.

correct, RV870 is around 330mm^2, so roughly the same performance (or little less) out of smaller chip + lesser power consumption, I think ATi has a winner.
Also, lets not forget that GTX460 die (I own it) is 332mm^2, soooooo..... a chip with 100mm^2 less of a die beats in in performance... looks like my 460 is going back to the store :)

Woot, ATI RADEON HD 6870! I'm already drooling. I would like to know more about the 6970 though... price/performance, anyone got a link?
