ATI's next generation GPUs to come in October

Written by Fuad Abazovic

At least a few cards
It doesn’t look like ATI is planning any dramatic price cuts of its chips in the short term. Partners and retailers can cut their profit margins in order to get more competitive but the really significant price cuts should come in October.

We just received confirmation on something that we have been reporting all year long, next generation ATI cards are coming in the latter part of this year, most likely in October. This will simply be one year after the introduction of Radeon 5000 series and we can also add that the new generation is still 40nm.

Our further investigation also led us to find two codenames Turks and Caicos as these two cards should replace Radeon HD 5670 and Radeon 5550 and 5400.

Cayman (Southern Islands should be a group codename for Radeon 6000 series) should be the codename for the product that replaces Radeon HD 5800 series, but as far as we know this chip might actually not make it to market this year, but it also might launch together with the other ones in October. The company also plans a dual-chip high performance card.
