AMD planning to bring back the ATI brand?

Posted on Tuesday, November 16 2010 @ 17:43:21 CET by

A recently updated Catalyst PC Vendor ID List hints that AMD may be planning to resurrect the ATI brand.
A quick look at the recently updated Catalyst PC Vendor ID List - which has since been pulled, but is still available thanks to the wonder that is Google Cache - shows a handful of unannounced Radeon HD 6000-series cards bearing the ATI name. These stand in stark comparison to the two entries for 6800-series cards that appear with the AMD marque both on the list and the retail packaging.

The listing also gives a little bit of insight into what might power these GPUs. The new parts have all been assigned Evergreen ASICs, suggesting that they'll be rebranded versions of older HD 5000-series cards. Based on the product IDs, the HD 6200 cards will use repurposed HD 5400 GPUs, the HD 6390 and HD 6510 will be based on the HD 5500 GPUs and the HD 6750 will share a chip with the HD 5700-series.
