Radeon HD 6870 and 6850 launch Oct 22nd

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Barts XT and Pro
AMD has finally made up its mind about the launch of Barts PRO and XT. These new cores will sport Radeon HD 6870 and 6850 brands, but it looks like that they will end up marginally slower than the original 5870 and 5850.

Don’t worry though, Cayman is still supposed to launch this year most likely with the HD 6890 if not 6970 / 6950 brands. We still don’t know these brands but this is something that would not surprise.

The two cards launching on Friday are the Radeon HD 6870, with 1GB GDDR5 as well as HDMI,DVI-I, DVI-D and Dual mini DisplayPort outputs, and the Radeon HD 6850, also with 1GB GDDR5, DVI-I and DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort.

The cards will start shipping to shops by the end of this week or early next week. You should be able to buy them in e-tail / retail shortly after launch.

22nm?! wow that's impessive!!! but then again I don't usually believe some certain articles on this website by faud, i remember people challenged me when I said that the performance chips might be 28nm, now they can moan at faud

22nm?? Which foundry is doing logic at that process node?

"Upgrading" to a slower card, makes no sense. Oh wait, yes it does. You get to line AMD's pockets! :D

Dumbasses!

"Oct 22nm" means Friday, October, 22.

Only god and the retards at fudzilla know why there is "nm" in the headline.

It will take at least two more years before we'll see ATI/AMD mastering 22nm technology.

And you're some kind of a new breed of idiot?

We know it's Oct 22... and the nm is more likely a joke on fufys behalf.

BTW, the first two that got thumbdowned were being sarcastic!

And damn... well, I guess the naming-scheme is there to stay and confuse people.

unless the chip is 32nm (typo) no-one is really certain of which process is being used, may be 40nm again, faud is never really accurate without a source to go on, also troy, stop being an arsehole

32nm bulk... no, TSMC scarped a lot of nodes and GF said it will do only SOI+HKMG 32nm.
There no reason to even fall for fufy's trick.

Yes we got that. I don't think it would hurt to have some fun though so...

Wow, 22nm,

then we are talking 4BIO Transistors for the mainstream part. Cooool!!

Probably should have been "22nd" as in twenty-secoND .. But looks like no one cares to edit the title

22nm? What a very convenient "mis-type" because I know that I always hit m which is only a four key distance from a d on standard keyboards. :sigh:

Seriously though I don't see AMD bothering to launch slower cards, fabrication matures and they can get better clocks. Granted clock rates increases will never touch a die shrink in terms of performance gain though when AM3 first debuted the clocks were still under 3GHz and now that the 45nm process has matured they've reached 3.5 and 3.7 Turbo-Core. I think it's realistic to presume a 5-20% increase in performance in general.
