Radeon HD 6000 is a minor improvement

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Tweaked HD 5000 series
ATI’s next generation Southern Islands cores are not promising anything spectacular. It looks like these cores are going to be just a tweak of ATI's existing Radeon HD 5000 series architecture.

This is mainly due the fact that this generation remains developed for 40nm and ATI still doesn’t have any new amazing architecture until 28nm and we have already reported that 28nm cores are coming sometime in 2011.

The release of the first cores based on the new improved generation is planned for October time, but ATI might introduce them in last days of September just to pull wool over investors’ eyes, as if it launches in late September it can still claim that launch took place in Q3 2010. They have already played this trump card with the Radeon HD 5000 series.

With this in mind, Nvidia at least has a fighting chance for back to school and Q4 2010 sales period. At least the graphics market will finally become interesting.

It is reported to be a hybrid between Nothern Islands and Cypress which could be 30% faster if not more of current 5000 series with improved power draw due to tweaks. Just like low power AMD processor versions of similar clock speeds which comes later.

Southern Islands features the uncore parts from Northern Island, coupled with Evergreen shaders (perhaps with some minor tweaks).

It should wipe the floor with GF104 and its derivatives, especially in performance/Watt.

Fuad, I really hope that you get a lot of cash from nVidia. Otherwise, this is disgusting. I read texts from other authors and some of them have own favourites, but your writing is malicious, really.

Damn! I came late to the party... it seems everyone pretty much already pissed on Fuad's article several times.

Oh well... TSMC being late with 28nm is AMD fault how?

one article on this website says that the AMD hecatoncheires is a completely new super architecture

http://www.fudzilla.com/graphics/graphics/graphics/ati-next-generation-is-codenamed-hecatoncheires

and now this article is saying it's only a few tiny tweaks, and I notice it's always Faud pushing the Nvidia fanboyism remarks. So much bias on this website, almost all AMD/ATI news articles are belittled here with following sentences such as "but Nvidia will/are...", are there any benefits over publishing such obvious trash?

They will still beat the living daylights out of Fermi even in 40nm.

And how clean was the launch of Fermi? Just a paper launch for Q1/10. Oh, wait, it was first promised for Q4/09. Even for Christmas...

It's always been like that in Fudzilla. But at least now we can comment back.

yeah, that's the only reason I celebrated the comment section, because I can now hit back at articles like this

Hey, it's not that bad at fudzilla: they really laughed at Nvidia when Jensen was showing crap with a cooling system instead of GTX 480.
It's really good, if ATI would step about 30% up - the price war will start raging, and... who doesn't like price wars?
