AMD Juniper lives on

Gets rebranded to HD 6750/6770
As rumoured earlier, AMD's Juniper-based HD 5700 series cards will now be available in retail under a different, rebranded name, Radeon HD 6750 and Radeon HD 6770.

The cards that will be hitting retail are pretty much identical to the previous HD 5750 and HD 5770 cards but with added support for HDMI 1.4a and Blu-Ray 3D content decoding. Most, if not all partners will come up with their own "new" HD 6700 series cards and some might have a thing or two to add, but in the end, you are still looking at HD 5700 Juniper based cards.

Specs wise, the HD 6770 features 800 Stream Processors, 40 texture units and works at 850MHz for the GPU and 4800MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paried up with a 128-bit memory interface. The slower, HD 6750 features 720 Stream Processors, 36 texture units and works at 700MHz for the GPU and 4600MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with the same 128-bit memory interface.

The prices are expected to be the same as the previous HD 5700 series cards, or somewhere around US $110 to US $150 depending on the card, cooler and partner.

Quoting yourma2000:
6670 has 80 more stream processors than the 5670 so any Nvidia fan claims of rebranding and reusing old chips (before the cards release) are bullshit


Read the title: 6770/6750 not 6670/6650

And yes it is a complete rebrand, identical in every way other then the bios (any features added in it could just as easily work with the 57xx as the hardware is identical). I hope you treat this with the disdain I'm sure you would have if nvidia had done it.

I'd feel much worse but the HD6790 makes the 6670 quite useless.

Either way, it is a rebrand. Can't say I approve.

However, there will NOT be a 3'rd-series Juniper, as the HD7770/HD7750 will be very much different.

@Dribble, not quite... nvidia made rebrands out of a whole line several times.

If AMD has a chip that performs well enough for a different/lower slot than it had before in the market, I don't see why they should waste R&D cash and engineers for making yet another mid-to-low end chip, instead of putting them to work on APU's and the next high-end.

Ugh, getting mixed up with the 6670 release last week, I can't even rate my own comments down :S, atleast it's not a high end re-brand like Nvidia

But we still have the 6790 which is a great, non re-branded solution

As much as I hate rebrands, at least AMD isn't rebranding high end cards. 9800GTX anyone ?

the 6790 requires a power connector.

the 9800gtx+ was rebranded to a gts 250, but they tacked on another 512mb. if they dont lower the price of the 5770 they should have added a more useful feature.
