AMD's upcoming Caicos graphics card pixellized

Written by Slobodan Simic

Radeon HD 6300 Series


Following the pictures of AMD's upcoming Cayman XT board, Chiphell.com has also posted pictures and the GPU-Z screenshot of the upcoming Caicos card as well. AMD's upcoming entry-level desktop series, codenamed "Caicos," should be the GPU that will be soldered to AMD's Radeon HD 6300 Series and should be the successor to the Radeon HD 5400 Series.

The qualification sample that was pixellized features a low-profile, single-slot, passive cooled design. The GPU-Z screenshot isn't as revealing as well but list the GPU identifier as the 6779 which does point out to "Caicos", at least according to the driver name leak that happened a few weeks ago.

You can still take the specs with a grain of salt as it is possible that they might change, but for now, the card works at 650MHz for the core and 800MHz for 1GB of DDR3 memory with 25.6GB/s memory bandwidth. The card has HDMI and DVI outputs.

You can find more pictures here.

I notice this time they have the AMD logo burnt onto the GPU, the HD 5000 chips had ATI, I guess my prediction of the HD 6000 being the last ATI cards was a load of crap, but for a card as low end and as small as this one, looking at the specs it looks fairly OK for some casual online gaming (MW2, BC2 etc)

I'm sure it will be updated properly when official drivers/release comes out

Cards like these are what really makes me like AMD/ATI. See, all else being the same, I'd prefer an nvidia card simply because ati drivers have their issues. Unfortunately all else wasn't the same, resulting in me buying 2 5970s. But, off topic. My point is, nvidia isn't really a champ of power consumption and heat at the moment, and as such, their low end cards just don't fit the bill. My HTPC has one PCI-E slot, surrounded by other PCI slots that are already occupied. So, ideally I would want a single slot card. Now, for an htpc, I wouldn't want an extra loud fan, and would prefer passive. So, for a single slot, passive card, AMD/ATI really is the best, and for the most part only choice. Gotta love these little cards. Keep it up AMD/ATI.

The problem with ATI is (and has been the last few years): Their hardware is great - their software SUCKS!

PLEASE, ATI, can't you spare a few more developers to fix your crapware SDK2.2? Your OpenCL implementation? Your drivers?

I am seriously not a NVidia Fanboy - but the green guys simple get this shit done!

I think that the NCP is superior to the CCC because it has more options.

I don't know about the SDK and OpenCL, but what problem do you have with the drivers? They have always worked well for me, ever since I got my first ATI card years ago.

For a developer (like myself) ATIs SDKs and drivers are a pain in the ass. They are full of bugs (just have a look at their support forums). Sure - the user doesn't know about this. And is not even interested in the pain we developers have with ATIs crapware.
