Gets rebranded to HD 6750/6770
As rumoured earlier, AMD's Juniper-based HD 5700 series cards will now be available in retail under a different, rebranded name, Radeon HD 6750 and Radeon HD 6770.

The cards that will be hitting retail are pretty much identical to the previous HD 5750 and HD 5770 cards but with added support for HDMI 1.4a and Blu-Ray 3D content decoding. Most, if not all partners will come up with their own "new" HD 6700 series cards and some might have a thing or two to add, but in the end, you are still looking at HD 5700 Juniper based cards.

Specs wise, the HD 6770 features 800 Stream Processors, 40 texture units and works at 850MHz for the GPU and 4800MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paried up with a 128-bit memory interface. The slower, HD 6750 features 720 Stream Processors, 36 texture units and works at 700MHz for the GPU and 4600MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with the same 128-bit memory interface.

The prices are expected to be the same as the previous HD 5700 series cards, or somewhere around US $110 to US $150 depending on the card, cooler and partner.
