AMD's upcoming Cayman XT pixellized

Written by Slobodan Simic

Still features ATI branding
The guys from Chiphell.com managed to score what is claimed to be a working prototype of AMD's Radeon HD 6000 Series graphics card codenamed "Cayman XT." According to the info, the pixellized card is the XT version of the Cayman chip and should be the Radeon HD 6x70 series card, at least if AMD sticks to the rumoured naming scheme.

Unfortunately, the picture doesn't reveal much solid information rather than some speculaction that the card might be as long as the Radeon HD 5870, should have CrossFireX support, and has two DVI ports, an HDMI port and two mini-DisplayPort connectors. The post didn't reveal any other specifications, except that we are looking at a GPU made on TSMC's 40nm manufacturing process.

An interesting detail is that the prototype still proudly carries the ATI brand sticker, something that AMD will probably throw away soon enough. In any case, it looks like more info regarding AMD's Radeon HD 6000 Series family has finally started to trickle out, which means that we'll see more surface very soon.

The thread can be found here.

These "HD 6000" cards will probably be the last to receive the ATI name, then AMD will put it's name on the Hecatoncheires "super architecture" in late 2011/early 2012 as part of the new era in AMD/ATI GPUs

infact, why has the picture of the card been photoshopped (badly) and had its background removed?

the board is connected with dvi port n pci-e power cords. so its actually sitting on a mobo, so the guy photoshoped the motherboard out. but i don see y that was required. :s

Indeed, you can see the reflection of the adjacent PCI slot on the cooler sheath.

i'd like to point out the logo on the fan ;)

it will be AMD as ATi is no more the article title kind of proves the picture to be false lol

I agree... there's also the misalignment of the fan and it's outline, it is lighter, kinda like it's been photoshoped in place.

But as we'll get closer and closer to NI's launch, it won't matter.

The problem with ATI is (and has been the last few years): Their hardware is great - their software SUCKS!

PLEASE, ATI, can't you spare a few more developers to fix your crapware SDK2.2? Your OpenCL implementation? Your drivers?

I am seriously not a NVidia Fanboy - but the green guys simple get this shit done!
