Caicos and Turks cards coming next week

Written by


HD 6450, HD 6570 and HD6670
AMD is looking to refresh its mainstream and entry level line-up with three new cards, based on the Caicos and Turks cores.

We already talked about the Caicos-based HD 6450, but the Turks-based HD 6570 and HD 6670 are a bit more interesting. The HD 6670 is clocked at 800MHz and it packs either 512MB or 1GB of GDDR5, clocked at 1000MHz. As we said earlier, it features 480 stream processors and 24 texture units.

The HD 6570 will ship in DDR3 and GDDR5 flavours. Like its big brother, it also packs 480 shaders, but it is clocked at 650MHz. It will be available with 512MB to 2GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 900MHz, or with 512MB to 1GB of GDDR5 clocked at 1000MHz.

Both Turks cards feature a 128-bit memory bus and in terms of features, they are on par with the rest of the 6000-series. However, if you were hoping to walk into a shop and buy one of them, think again. AMD says they’re for OEMs only, but this will change, although it will probybly take some time before they show up in retail.

6450 is for sale here, retail, since last week.
The article focuses on the turks cards, but it should be clarified that 6450 is already available.

This is not the tech testing for the next fab process. It's still 40nm.

oem only?? i think the 6670 could be a strong seller in retail. my buddy has a 4670 and plays all the new stuff, crysis,bc2 etc.

whoever down voted me, give me a reason, you guys are ridiculous! 6670 at about 75 bucks would be good for alot of people who want a decent entry level card, support for multiple monitors and decent gaming....rather than having to buy a whole new comp, they could just slap it in and go with about any cpu...wouldn't they sell more if they gave you an option? maybe it is a condition hp and dell and bla bla must need met in order for them to buy so many, so people dont just go out and buy the card instead....?

I've already said it and I'll continue to repeat it: 6570 should be named 6650 instead.

It's oem only for starters, until supplies increase.

The last sentence doesn't make any sense. These cards are already available for OEM's. HP and others sell systems based of this card for over a month. So the announcement must be for the retail versions becoming available next week.

The 6670 sounds an awful lot like a 5670. If it's under $100 and fits a single slot it might do well. Looking forward to the reviews.
