Radeon HD 6850 has 960 SPs

Written by Slobodan Simic

127W TDP

We already wrote about AMD's upcoming Barts XT based, HD 6870 card, and it is time to shed some light on it slower brother, the Barts Pro based, HD 6850. This one works at 775MHz and has 960 stream processors.

The precise details regarding the Barts GPU are still blurry but we do know that AMD markets this one against the GTX 460 768MB card. The GPU works at 775MHz and the card comes with 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4000MHz and paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. According to the specs that we managed to score, the card has 960 Stream Processors, 12 SIMDs, 32 ROPs and it gives 1.5 TFLOPS of compute power.

The maximum TDP is set at 127W and it uses 19W at idle, so it is left with a single 6-pin power connector. It comes with the same diplay output configuration as the HD 6870 so you will see two DVI, two mini DisplayPort and one HDMI output.

TDP of 127W is pretty disappointing for the 6850.

Yeah right, it's so much worse than 170W (5850) :D

You compare 6850 with 5850? You do realize 5850 is much faster?

Yes, why?

Since the GTX460 is faster than the 6850 is only logical that it needs more power.

This is what this arms race between AMD and NVidia is all about: "We are incapable to manage the 28 or 22nm process - so we simply increase the wattage".

Madness imho.

Man-bear-pig? They do not know ...

We don't have any reviews of these new boards yet, nobody knows for sure which will be the fastest one.

Uhm ... yes, we do!

Maybe not in Afghanistan - or wherever you may come from.

Acctualy no...we DON'T. If you are talking about some 3DMark Vantage Scores and a couple of game testes around the web, wait for official reviews.

And no, I'm not from where you think, but probably I'm from a better place than you.

*sigh*

a. no official benchies are out.
b. review states 6850 is slightly faster than 460 768MB. lets say 5%? so, 6850 being 5% faster than 460 consumes 23% less power
c. lets just assume 460 768MB is faster, u really think it 23% faster??

if you come out and yes then u definitely are a troll....otherwise u just want attention

cheers :)
