Although it has been noted that the Radeon HD 6000M series will feature the HD 6900M/6800M for enthusiast market, HD 6700M, 6600M and 6500M for the performance, Radeon HD 6400M for mainstream and Radeon HD 6300M for "thin and light", for now, AMD has only released full specs for the HD 6300M and the 6500M GPUs.
The HD 6500M features 400 stream processors and 20 texture units, core clock set between 500 and 650MHz, 400 to 520 GigaFLOPS of processing power and either DDR3 or GDDR5 memory working at 1.8GHz and 3.6GHz.
The slower Radeon HD 6300M features 80 stream processors and 8 texture units, GPU clocked between 500 and 750MHz offering between 80 to 120 GigaFLOPS of processing power, and DDR3 memory with clocks depending on the choice of memory (1.6 or 1.8GHz).
The AMD Radeon 6000M series GPUs have been seen running in a couple of notebooks already and we are sure that we'll see more, and the rest of the lineup pretty soon.
