AMD offically launched HD 6700 series

Juniper rebrands
AMD has officially rebranded its HD 5700 series Juniper based graphics cards to Radeon HD 6700 series. The Radeond HD 6750 and the Radeon HD 6770 are now detailed at AMD's website and have the same specs as the old HD 5750 and 5770 cards.

To be fair, a while back AMD did say that the HD 5700 series is here to stay so this rebrand doesn't come as a surprise. On its product page, AMD cleary states that these are based on the HD 5700 series hardware with added support for HDMI 1.4a and it appears that these rebrands are only for OEMs while retail/e-tail is still listing the HD 5700 series cards.

As far as the specs go, the HD 6770 features 800 stream processors, DirectX 11 support and features a 128-bit memory interface paired up with GDDR5 memory. THe HD 6750 has 720 stream processors, while both cards have the same clocks as the old HD 5700 series.

For now it looks like that these two rebrands are OEM only but we'll keep an eye out in case these appear in retail/e-tail. You can find them both here.

Man! I hope we don't see more of this marketing bullshit now - since Dirk Meyer (ex CEO) has ben fired. He was a techie (chip designer) himself and I doubt he would have agreed with this.

I really don´t understand why is AMD doing this? And not just this, but the kill of the ATI brand, ATI has give them some respect for many years in the graphics world, maybe it can be relative to Dirk´s sudden leave from the company, and these all new wrong things AMD is doing right now.
I know it´s just re branding guys but they dont need to make it more complex, at the end as they say AMD vision it was creative whit just one end, simplicity when you have to choose and the are not doing such a thing.

Yes I´ll try to write all mi comments in English, so you can understand me.
Nice Day

What's new, NVIDIA is king when it comes to re-brands...

These rebrands don't affect the average Joe... 6700 or 5700, they are still the same chip for a market segment that didn't get a refresh. It's not like AMD made up several new families out of the same chips and as the article said, we were aware of this for some time now.

So the new HD 6670/6650 (Code name Turks) is going to be slower than the old 5750. That is disappointing.

Now watch the days go by and not even a mention of this on semiaccurate.com.

But don't tell them they're hypocritical. Apparently that's a "personal attack" and it'll get you banned. :-*
