Juniper 5700 might get rebranded

Written by Slobodan Simic

AMD might pull an "Nvidia"

The same set of slides that were leaked earlier today also show some details regarding AMD's product transition plan and it looks like AMD might pull the same stunt that Nvidia has been doing for years. Renaming, rebranding or whatever do you want to call it, is something that AMD plans to do with its HD 5700 Juniper based cards.

According to the slide, AMD's plan is to introduce the new Barts based cards that will be a direct successor of the Juniper, or to be precise, take the part of the market that belonged to Juniper based cards. Barts will be followed by Cayman-based cards that should show up in late November. Last but not least is the successor of Hemlock, the Antilles based dual-GPU card, which should show up in December.

According to the slide, Juniper based cards are here to stay, at least until the end of the year. AMD might rebrand these to HD 6700 series, considering that all the rumours so far suggest that Barts will be branded as HD 6800 series. Of course, as AMD still isn't officially talking about branding, so take this info with a grain of salt, as these things can easily change.

Some AMD partners that we talked to even suggest that Juniper might get a "minor improvement", but don't expect much as that will still be the same old Juniper GPU. We guess that the improvement might have something to do with outputs/Eyefinity features, but it is still to be confirmed.

I am just wondering, how do you know it's a rebrand? ATI never said anything about codenames, etc.

Everyone just base this on rumors, and rumors

Barts is 6700
Barts is 6800

Bla, bla...

It would be a rebrand if they actually revealed something before.

What about Redwood, Cedar and the GT 430? Also, isn't it GTS 450 instead of GTX 450?.

As much as this would suck from an innovation standpoint, it makes sense as the GTS 450 is barely competitive now, and nVidia's options for adding cards to its lineup are mostly limited to a GTX 475 (based on an uncut GF104) and a GTX 495 (a potential dual-GF104 card).

"rebranding or whatever do you want to call it, is something that AMD plans to do with its HD 5700 Juniper based cards."

"AMD still isn't officially talking about branding, so take this info with a grain of salt, as these things can easily change"

First you say they are rebranding and next paragraph you say its all bs speculation. Nice.

I think the slides are just stating that Juniper will not be replaced between no and December, it doesn't say anything about rebranding it.

If the 6970 is going to pull just under 300w of power then I'm scared to think what a 6970x2 is going to require, I seriously hope that the heat isn't a big issue

No matter how you slice it and dice it, Nvidia is in big trouble.

Quoting yourma2000:

40nm baby, 40nm!

Was thinking the same thing when I saw the slide in the previous article... it's just an arrow that points out Juniper will live longer than Cypress. Nothing more. besides, wouldn't it be stupid to later come out with a new chip but have its model name already taken by an older part?

Also what amazes me, no model numbers, just core names. Strange.

Fudzilla will be very happy then or not?
