Radeon HD 6870 officially at 900MHz

Written by Fuad Abazovic
radeon_logo_new

1050MHz GDDR5 memory
The chip that was supposed to replace Radeon HD 5770 and HD 5750 and that mysteriously ended up with Radeon HD 6870 and Radeon HD 6850 moniker has finally got its clock. It runs at 900MHz.

As we speak AMD is telling chosen press representatives about the specifics of the chips and how they plan to dominate the word. We still don’t see many ATI Radeon HD 5870 owners to be that hot for AMD Radeon HD 6870. I guess the message is that AMD's Radeon is not as good as ATI’s, and of course we are joking, but let us get burned by our beloved fanboys in the comments section. (You mean to tell me that we have fanboys commenting our stories? No way. sub.ed.)

The GDDR5 works at 1050MHz or 4200MHz if you consider that the GDDR5 is quad band and that the card has a 256-bit memory controller. Of course it has a dual slot cooler and of it supports CrossFire. The card also has two six pin power connectors.

The US retail price should land somewhere around 250 USD and we guess that 250 euro should be quite realistic price for EU countries that use this currency. We just got word that the price will be closer to €250, not € / $300 as originally reported.

Launch is on the 22nd October, next Friday and this should be the availability day, at least for a few lucky ones as everything indicates that Radeon HD 6870 might be in short supply.

As we speak, AMD is telling to elite press who they like, about the specifics of the chips and how they plan to dominate the word and we still don’t see many ATI Radeon HD 5870 owners to be that hot for AMD Radeon HD 6870. I guess the message is that AMD Radeon is not as good as ATI’s, and of course we are joking, but let us be burned by our beloved fan boys at the comment section.

Of course it’s a dual slot fan and of course it does support crossfire cable and has two six pin power connectors.

US retail price should land somewhere around 300 USD and we guess that 300 Euro should be quite realistic price for EU countries who use this currency.

Launch is on the 22nd October, next Friday and this should be the availability day, at least for a few lucky ones as it all implicates that Radeon HD 6870 might be in short supply.

Fudzilla is a residence of Nvidia and ATI fanboys. BTW, did i forget to tell you that you can't stop us ? :P Muhahahah... :lol:

Forgive me but this guy has "just" a few more connections with AMD than you. If he says "offical", it very much likely is.

Yeah, and as of like 3 days ago, wasn't it supposed to launch yesterday? Fudo will probably wait until the 20th, and announce it's coming on the 28th.

@thomasg AMD is changing and we update with the new date, this is what AMD is telling today :) if they change I will write another one :) at least the price is reasonable

Wasn`t the 6870 supposed to replace the 5770?
Then, what is that price???? Even 250(300 originally) is waaaay too much. I guess the 6970 is going to be 500 Euro and 6990 will be 1000?
You have official info on the price?
 
 
+16 #9 fudo 2010-10-13 17:07
AMD can change the price at any time before launch, but 250 is a realistic one, the best one we got to date

Riiiiiiiiiiight , like he has any connections at all... You know, when he said that 6xxx series will be a minor refresh, or that it will launch on Friday (mark my words)?
