AMD HD 6870 and 6850 Launch Approaches

Okay, we’re looking at a week or so before AMD lets loose those much anticipated brand new flagship graphics cards. According to Fudzilla, if they are right, the HD 6870 and 6850 should be available for public consumption next Friday (Oct. 22). It is said that AMD had already begun shipping its parts to several vendors, and their sales will solely reflect on how they compete with the cards that are currently on the market.

Surprisingly this pair of cards are still both based on the Barts core (PRO [6870] and XT [6850]), with the faster Cayman core for the top-of-the-line (and even faster) parts later this year, perhaps the HD 6890, 6970, or 6950. AMD’s HD 6870 and 6850 should come with the standard 1GB of GDDR5, HDMI, DVI-I, DVI-D, and DisplayPort outputs (2 for the 6870).
