AMD Radeon HD 6930 on the way

Posted on Friday, December 02 2011 @ 22:02:17 CET by

FUD Zilla spotted a rumor that AMD is readying a Radeon HD 6930 to put a bit more pressure on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 560. The new card is expected to retail for around $180-200.
Instead of moving with a price cut, it seems AMD will release what appears to be a cutdown version of the HD 6950 Cayman card. According to the report, the new Radeon HD 6930 will be based on Cayman CE GPU that has 1280 stream processors and 80 texture units (1408/88 on the HD 6950 card). This means that AMD will cut two more SIMD engines, or a total of four if you are considering a fully enabled Cayman GPU, that will still leave the new card with a full 32 ROPs. The new HD 6930 will pack a 256-bit memory interface paired up with either 1GB or 2GB of GDDR5 memory.

The rest of the specs will also get a slight cut down to 750MHz for the GPU and 4800MHz for the memory. It will still need two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors and will most likely feature the same DVI, two mini DisplayPort and one HDMI output configuration, but these will also depend on partners version of the card.
