AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series Details Emerge

Should NVIDIA even be afraid at all? If these spec sheets are actually legitimate, it looks like they’ll have quite the concern and will definitely have to scramble to get all caught up.

From the looks of it, there will be two varieties of the soon-to-be-released 40nm Barts chip based on independent sources online, and we’re seeing quite a gain from the previous generation. The “all new” HD 67X0 cards do apparently seem much quicker than their predecessors in terms of higher clocks, more texture units, and more ROPs (Raster Operators) – something to be all hyped up about is when you compare these models to the HD 5870 and 5850, AMD’s current flagship cards. Memory bandwidth and pixel fillrate are exactly the same between the HD 6750 and 5850, the HD 6770 on the other hand manages to beat the formerly dominate 5870 in some areas.

This is all unconfirmed information, but if Barts is only considered an “upper midrange” chip then we should be seeing some wonders coming from the featured Cayman chip when it arrives. We wouldn’t want to get all excited from just rumors and leaks now do we? In the meantime, check out the supposed company’s slide below and we’ll let you be the judge.
