Cayman PRO is 6950, XT is 6970

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Late November launch
Barts PRO and Barts XT are Radeon HD 6850 and Radeon HD 6870, respectively, and they are supposed to launch exactly one week from now - on Friday the 22nd. But you should all know this by now.

Barts will have a go versus Geforce GTX 460 1GB and 768MB and while they should win this fight, everything seems to indicate that they will be more expensive. They are being positioned as the products that are faster than Radeon HD 5770 and 5750 but slower than Radeon HD 5870 and HD 5850.  

Cayman replaces Radeon HD 5870 and HD 5850 and we are hearing that Cayman XT is going to end up branded as Radeon HD 6970 while Cayman PRO gets the AMD Radeon HD 6950 brand.

Launch date is in the last week of November, if all goes well of course.

So I assume we will not see an HD 6770 or HD 6750 card then. Hope this crazy name change doesn't bite you in the aris ATI.

I guess Juniper will be 67xx series

I love how Fudzilla takes what should be one story about the AMD 6xxx series GPUs and makes three or four with it. They do this with a lot of things, it's a little strange. Maybe they're just trying to generate more clicks?

Lets see if the green team has the GTX580 ready by then.

It's clear up NI family naming scheme.
6990 maybe Antilles (likely to be Barts XT*2)
6970 = Cayman XT
6950 = Cayman Pro
6870 = Barts XT
6850 = Barts Pro
6770 maybe Juniper XT
6750 maybe Juniper Pro
6670 maybe Turk XT
6650 or 6570 maybe Turk Pro
6470 or 6350 maybe Caicos
:-)

I am guessing that they will go back to the old naming scheme for the dual GPU and call it HD6970X2

Wow! Only "-2" so far for mentioning "the green team" :D

Wake up, ATI fanboys!
