    BTW, Cooler is a decoy, real one should follow the white outline drawn on the PCB forming a dual slot external exhaust style
    the product name of this card is 6870 and the chip is a 5770 class chip with 256bit interface

    the highend one will be a single gpu 6990

    in my point of view the 6870's spec is:

    960 Shader-cores on 850 mhz and 4,2 GHz 205Gb/s vram on a 256bit interface
    the TDP is 150watt

    the 6850's spec:
    725 MHz 800 Shader units and 4 GHz vram 256-Bit-Interface
    TDP ~100watt

    the 6990 will have 1920 shader cores

    the smaler 800-960 shader card is the 6850/6870:

    The 68xx series will be a great replacement for the 58xx series.

    And then AMD pulls out the big gun.

    amd makes clear with the 6870 thats nvidia won in the past i tell you why:

    nvidia uses 4D shaders back in the geforce 8800 no one uses the 5D shader of the hd2900-5870 series in software so all software was optimated for nvidia 4D shaders now amd give up the fight and cut of the 5D shaders to nvidia like 4D shaders.

    nvidia uses 1 triangle per pixel tesselation unit logik in the gtx480 and now amd 6870 uses also 1 triangle per pixel tesselation logik.

    nvidia uses an 2 level cache architecture in the geforce8800 and openCL makes this to an GOD level standart thats why a hd2900 and hd3870 cant run any openCL software the hd4870 brings 1 of 2 nvidia caches and emulate the other in vram to bring a poor openCL suppot thats because openCL is just a copy of nvidia cuda and now the hd5870 brings the second cache in hardware and amd needs the 6870 to brings the full openCL-nvidia speed.


    should i be happy about a 100% nvidia design 6870 card ?

    nvidia hardware design now but no one can use this nvidia technique because physX don't work on amd cards and the nvidia unix video acceleration also don'T work on the amd hardware.


    amd really needs to fight this all dump humans follow nvidia on all cost.

    mybe "AMD Techdemo Mecha Rampage: Bullet Physx over Direct Compute" helps a bit.

    You forgot:
    - HDMI 1.4 in next HD 6000 series, currently available elsewhere
    - Probably more codecs supported in UVD3: symbols in the library mention MPEG-2 VLD and MPEG-4 ASP (DivX) at VLD level too. That's already available on NVIDIA chips

    Anyway, everybody was reporting that HD 6000 series was just a slight upgrade to HD 5000 series. The only thing interesting coming next from AMD is Ontario & Bulldozer processors. Just hope this comes in time with correct support on Linux.

    i don't talk about hdmi because nvidia do not won anything on hdmi because there was no nvidia only standart.

    and the more codex support is a fake no one need's a mpeg2 codex acceleration on an modern system because the cpu is to fast for an fucking mpeg2 vid.

    and nvidia do not won on the video side because there is no nvidia only codex.

    divx yes nice but still no WebM/dirac support

    There's nothing wrong in adapting one's product to suit the market, if you can't change the market or if there is a better alternative. Persisting on doing things that don't gather much interest would be much worse. Like if AMD CPUs only had 3DNOW and no SSE that has proven to be much more popular. Or if Intel didn't add L3 cache to its cpus just because that was already done by AMD and other cpu makers before.

    The daisy-chaining of DisplayPort outputs is somewhat interesting too.

    Now if only there were cheap DP monitors, and that feature prob needs new cables as well.

    I was under the impression that the other guys used scalar processors (aka "1D"), not 4-wide or 5-wide VLIW ("4D" / "5D").
