AMD HD 6000 features get detailed

Written by Slobodan Simic

Up to six displays via DP 1.2

A new set of leaked slides that have showed up over at Chiphell have revealed some details regarding the feature set of the upcoming Radeon HD 6000 series cards. As it was rumoured a while back, it is now pretty much confirmed that both Barts and Cayman boards will have support for up to six displays, thanks to DisplayPort 1.2 outputs.

The secret behind it is the MultiStream feature of DisplayPort 1.2, that has double the data-rate of DisplayPort 1.1. In addition to the higher data-rate, DP 1.2 also brings support for higher resolution support and support for stereoscopic 3D. The new HD 6000 will be able to support up to six DisplayPort displays by "daisy chaining" them to two Displayport outputs. The best part for AMD is that they can use Evergreen (Eyefinity 6) reference boards for this one since Barts and Cypress are pin compatible.

The rest of the outputs include HDMI 1.4 output for 3D video (Blu-ray 3D) support, and two dual-link DVI-I outputs. The slides also reveal that we can expect increased performance in every segment and AMD's UVD 3.0 video processing engine for GPU acceleration.

Why not post slide that shows performance comparison?

Oh, wait, because nVidia takes a hit there.

In slide #20 appears a "gtx 450" which does not exist.

nice of amd to keep drip-feeding us leaks. hopefully this'll shut-up everyone who still thinks that this series is called southern islands.

lol dude exactly. i dont know what is the problem with these morons who keep thinking it is southern islands. even a simple search in wikipedia clearly mentions this gen is NI.

Well as for features it is pretty much the same, we dont expect any more anyways. but the performance is what is worth considering. many sites mention it is a small boost vs previous gen. but the leaked performance and rumored benches show otherwise. Lets wait for the offical release and findout whos right.

Well this series was suppose to be called Northern Islands based on 32nm and based on a Brand New Design, built from the ground up. But that isn't going to happen ever since 32nm has been scraped, they stuck with a modded 40nm instead just until 28nm is ready. So this is basically a simple name change.

So now AMD is calling the brand new architecture built from the ground up Southern Islands which is rumoured to come out sometime in 1st half of 2011. Anyway, let’s just hope the HD 6870 is faster than the HD 5870 even if it’s slightly, then have the HD 6970 blow away anything. Once again, bad move to change the names AMD, so now you better deliver.

Couldn't agree more! If the rumours hold true, we wont see the 6870 surpassing the 5870; futhermore, it seems (again, based upon rumour) that the 6870 would have been more appropriately named 6770...

I'm just hoping there is a good reason for changing their product naming (numbering) scheme like this, because a lot of misinformed users may end up buying a 6870 without realising it isn't what they hoped for...(or is that the plan?)

I don't care about HDMI at all, the people behind it don't want consumers to know the version of the wire(s) they are buying so it's essentially like buying an Intel proc, you have no clue what you're getting from the model number.

Yeah, where are the performance numbers? That's kind of like the most important thing that could have been posted.

Proves that Nvidia has been releasing products that are utterly forgettable.I won't lie, I had forgotten about the 450 also :P

"Marburg_U" is correct there is no "GTX" 450. It's a "GTS" 450. J1mmy's link is for a GTS 450.
