ATI's next generation GPUs to come in October

Written by Fuad Abazovic

At least a few cards
It doesn’t look like ATI is planning any dramatic price cuts of its chips in the short term. Partners and retailers can cut their profit margins in order to get more competitive but the really significant price cuts should come in October.

We just received confirmation on something that we have been reporting all year long, next generation ATI cards are coming in the latter part of this year, most likely in October. This will simply be one year after the introduction of Radeon 5000 series and we can also add that the new generation is still 40nm.

Our further investigation also led us to find two codenames Turks and Caicos as these two cards should replace Radeon HD 5670 and Radeon 5550 and 5400.

Cayman (Southern Islands should be a group codename for Radeon 6000 series) should be the codename for the product that replaces Radeon HD 5800 series, but as far as we know this chip might actually not make it to market this year, but it also might launch together with the other ones in October. The company also plans a dual-chip high performance card.

In other words, this is the only news we've learned from AMD:

"Cayman" = successor to Radeon HD 5800 Series

"Turks" = successor to Radeon HD 5670

"Caicos" = successor to Radeon HD 5550/5400 Series

Still awaiting dual-GPU codename for successor to Hemlock (Radeon HD 5970)

dual-GPU codename for successor to Hemlock (Radeon HD 5970)= Antilles

I don't like to keep you waiting, this is at least what I've heard...

You may as well go buy it as AMD more than likely will not release the sucessor to the 5870 until after Xmas. This happened with the current generation as they used the lower powered cards as guinea pigs in the newer nanometer process.

This time they don't need guinea pigs as the process is the same. But don't count them out just yet as the first Fusion APU is said to be ahead of schedule, so who knows if they manage to bring SI ahead of schedule as well. BTW, both of these are made at TSMC, that's why I consider it to be likely. They know that process pretty well, but I'm just trying to be positive here, and maybe we get lucky.

And @heavyglow, wait 'cause they'll get dirt cheap!

i dont really like this delay that nvidia made. Ati is becoming new nvidia because they have their HD5xx0 series for long time on the market and prices are the same as they were. and i am guessing that it would remain the same untill HD6xx0 series come. and here is why i dont like that: i have bought my 4850 2 months after it was released for 125€, original price was 140€. So when the 5850 came out I was expecting at least 160€ max price, but as you all know the price was 210€. honestly i did get lucky by trading my 4850+100€ for 5850 but if i had waited at least a month i would have to pay 4850+150€. so when the cats are away mices rule (btw i hate nvidia :D )

Well, if I waited 10 years I would've saved $10.000 on computer parts alone! Imagine that!

And if you invested it in Apple, you would have had $250,000 now... :lol:

Damn, I'm never upgrading again.

Oh well, as demonstrated with AMD & Nvidia in the Dx11 market this year "The early bird gets the worm" if AMD can release the new series early again then maybe they can guarantee another year of win
