AMD Southern Islands GPUs to be launched on October 12?

Posted on Friday, September 24 2010 @ 12:12:03 CEST by


Bright Side of News claims AMD will introduce the Radeon HD 6000 series at a press event in Los Angeles on October 12th, 2010, but it's unknown whether this will be a soft or a hard launch. Interestingly, the mainstream cards are expected to arrive first:
Unlike the regular launch sequence, AMD plans to introduce the mainstream series first, meaning headaches for nVidia's Sales team and if you're a consumer like us - welcome Holiday Season 2010 with the two graphics giants slaughtering each other. As you saw in the image above, leaked specifications cite that the Barts PRO features 800 cores, while the XT version will come with 960 GPU cores. From our understanding, AMD did a good job on the refreshing the architecture, increasing the memory controller from 128-bit to 256-bit, meaning that nVidia's 256-bit equipped GTX 460 has an potential issue, given the higher bandwidth rates AMD is known to achieve.
