AMD silently launches Radeon HD 7670 OEM-only GPU

Same specs as Radeon HD 6670, nothing new

AnandTech has recently discovered that AMD silently launched an OEM-exclusive midrange card under the Radeon 7000 Series name, the Radeon HD 7670.

Interestingly enough, the card is an identical rebrand of the Radeon HD 6670 and is based on the same 40nm Turks GPU. The card was discovered within the specifications page of HP’s new Omni27 All-In-One Pavilion Phenic h9 Gaming PC, which is officially shipping out to customers on January 8th.

Needless to say, the  Radeon HD 7670 features an 800MHz core clock, 128-bit memory interface, 1GHz GDDR5 memory, 480 stream processors, 24 texture units, and comes in two flavors of 512MB or 1GB of memory. As AnandTech notes, it typically takes AMD around 6 months to launch a complete GPU family lineup. If the company launched its first high-end Radeon HD 7000 Series card in December 2011, it would take until at least May or June for a midrange OEM-catered product to appear on the market. However, OEMs don’t like to wait this long, and the opportunity for HP or any other OEM to present a Radeon HD 7000 Series card in a marketing brochure at CES is the pure gold they need to attract the masses.

Not really, no one seriously considering gaming goes below x700, or HD7700 in these times, which is S.I.

One thing to note is that this will relieve 28nm wafer lines and allow TSMC to produce more high performing chips per available 28nm wafer throughput.

And besides for such cards 40nm and the N.I. specs are more than enough.
