AMD rolls out HD 6450/6570/6670 for OEMs

Turks and Caicos for OEM
In addition to the recent rebrand of the HD 5770 and the HD 5750 to HD 6750 and HD 6770, AMD has now added three more cards that will be a part of its HD 6700 series OEM offer, the HD 6450, HD 6570 and the HD 6670.

Unlike the previous rebrands, these new cards are based on a completely new 40nm Caicos and Turks chips. The slowest of the bunch is the HD 6450. This one is based on the entry-level AMD Caicos chip and features 160 VLIW5 stream processors, a 64-bit memory interface and works with both GDDR5 and DDR3 memory.

The GPU clock for the HD 6450 will be set between 625MHz and 750MHz while the 512MB to 1GB of memory will end up clocked between 533 and 800MHz for DDR3 and 800 to 900MHz for GDDR5 versions. It is important to note that the Cedar predecessor had half the amount of shaders so the new HD 6450 is a nice addition to the lineup.

The HD 6570 and the HD 6670 are both based on AMD's Turks chip that features 480 stream processors and 512MB or 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface. The faster, HD 6670 works at 800MHz for the GPU and 1000MHz (4.0Gbps) for the GDDR5 memory. These specs are enough for 768 GFLOPS of single precision compute power.

The HD 6570 will end up clocked at a bit slower 650MHz and will be available with both GDDR5 and the DDR3 memory. The GDDR5 version will end up at the same 1000MHz (4.0Gbps) while the DDR3 version will be clocked at 900MHz (1.8GHz).

The Caicos based HD 6450 ends up with a low-profile, passively cooled PCB that features DVI and HDMI outputs and it is pretty clear that these might be quite an interesting cards for an HTPC system. On the other hand, Turks based HD 6570 also features the low-profile PCB but paired up with a small fan/heatsink cooler. The HD 6670 is left with a full height PCB, single-slot heatsink/fan cooler.

Bear in mind that we are still talking about OEM only cards and there is no info on when will these be available in retail, but we guess that more info should follow up soon and that they could be just around the corner. You can check them all out here.

This is a AMD/ATI Fail year.

They are smashed to the ground and kicked by nVidia and Intel.

I feel sorry for AMD :D :D

hitechamature and reality aren't on the best of terms it seems.

At least in Denmark the HD6670 is coming to an Aldi near you this week. At least I suppose that's what's used in the Medion AKOYA P4380 D (MD 8352).

(My post gets voted down for which reason exactly?)

that's BS, Intel F..ck up with chipsets and going to loose 1 billion,that's epic fail from the start of this year, their Ivy Bridge CPUs sound promising though, AMDs Bulldozer too. So we might see good products this year from them.
Nvidia 560,570 are great GPUs so AMD 6870 and 6950.AMD is doing great, so Intel and Nvidia.

Nono, they got owned at 8800 and C2D times, now they pwn.

I guess LOTechAmateur and Whiner_24_7 just can't help themselves from being little pissants and spouting their drivel on any article related to AMD. I wonder what they would do if someone would post stupid BS like "Inturd" in the articles dealing with Intel's giant screwup with the "6" series of chipsets. That's the biggest f-up I've seen in years by either. Even AMD's TLB bug with the original Phenoms wasn't this bad, since they were able to do workarounds to the problem.

On the article itself, sounds interesting, especially for the folks on a budget or for an HTPC build.

These aren't going to permanently be OEM only, are they? If so, that would be the dumbest thing AMD's done in a long time. I'm guessing that they'll only be OEM cards at first and will hit retail in a few months.

No... just that the OEM's put down some cash so AMD made them a nice surprise, when the wafers will cook properly, then we can expect more cards and in retail.
