AMD Prepares HD 6970 and 6950 Launch

Based on released specs from un-named sources, AMD’s Radeon HD 6970 won’t be a close competitor to NVIDIA’s GTX 580 – given that it would result in a lower cost about $50-70 less. From previous rumours, their future flagship card will come loaded with 2GB of memory on a 256-bit bus running at an effective 1375MHz, 96 texture units, 32 ROPs, and a core clock of 880MHz. Mum’s the word on availability for this month, since there were already talks of limited initial shipment volumes. If you’re looking into getting one of these, you better be on the lookout starting tomorrow.
