Barts XT and PRO to replace 5800 series

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Faster ones
AMD would not bother to launch cards that are not faster than the previous generation, as this is simply the nature of things. They simply have to be faster than the previous generation.

We got confirmation that the HD 6000 series launch is still on schedule for October 18th and that Barts PRO and Barts XT are going to replace Cypress, Radeon HD 5800 series boards. This is a clear indication that the new card is going to end up faster than the Radeon HD 5850 and most likely HD 5870 which is something that most of us didn’t expect.

Still the real deal are Cayman PRO and XT that are scheduled to launch in November time, and these ones should once again raise the bar. Nvidia has something to counter the Northern Islands at least in the high end, but we still have to find out more details about it.

Antilles, the new Radeon HD 6970 dual X2 card should also launch later this year.

And what is that? Hot, broken and inefficient 480?

Maybe they'll glue two of them together. They could also come in handy as patio heaters...

Sundenly, the "FUD" in Fudzilla makes total sense.

But Fudo wants you to think they have so that you wouldn't buy new Radeons.

What's with the code name Northern Islands? That is suppose to get released sometime in 2011 based on 28nm. So this HD 6000 series is code name Southern Islands right? Fudzilla and SemiAccurate are mixing up the two code names and blindly using either one at will.

Of course they have something. Where do you think the 512 shader GF100 cards are?

Waiting for just this day!

Soon, 25 lucky Nvidia fans will have the chance to own the fastest DX11 card ever made. You just sound like you are jealous.

I suppose technically it's neither, there's been a lot of confusion. Northern islands was going to be a 32nm part, but that process got cancelled. Southern Islands in the next gen at 28nm.
When 32nm was cancelled ATi/AMD re-engineered Northern Islands for 40nm.
So I suppose it's still Northern island/6000 seriers....at least thats my understanding :/

@fudzillalololo it is clear that your Dad works at ATI, so please say hi to him.

@ everyone else

why do you all believe that Nvidia sleeps when ATI has something good :) I still don't get that part. Nvidia might have something worse but it still has something.

works vice versa
