Is that chart right? Should'nt it say 6750, 6770. That cant be right.

Charts pretty fake...atleast from what i can tell. At the place they got it from, it lists the 5770 with 256 bit...if they cant get current gen specs right, how can they get future gen? Also, if 960 shaders is equivalent to or above 1440 shaders on cypress, then 1920 shaders on Cayman would be WAY too powerful. Math just doesnt add up IMO...

'Better than 5830' and 'Better than 5850' for the 6850 and 6870 respectively? Well I would certainly hope so unless AMD decided to throw their naming convention into the wind.

I've seen this crazy naming scheme on more than one website, I think it's correct. What they were thinking when they picked the names is another story. It should be 67 series= old 57 series, 68 and so on. Really dumb.

Oooh fantastic... The only way nVidia can compete with this is through " Paper Dragon 2011" :)( Like they did with fermi for 5000 series launch ).

Go nVidia( out of GPU market )

I think I'll wait for a manufacturing shrink to 30nm or so before I upgrade. I'm guessing that will be part of the next line AMD releases.

If my understanding is right, the 6xxx series is just the next lineup of cards on a more mature 40nm fab?
Would seem that, going for the same TDP as before, only a minimal performance increase should be expected.
Guess I just have to sit and wait it out for the next die shrink.

For those who say the 6850 is inferior or whatever, thats because rumors were flying around AMD was changing the naming system up. 6750-6850, 6770-6870, 6870-6970, 6970-6990. SO keep in mind those are the 6750 and 6770 supposedly, but even considering that, math doesnt add up.

It might take some time before they get the 30nm to the masses + current gen are really not bad, especially the 5700, I think they run pretty cool at 75*C full load and only 17W in idle. Then again, if you are able/willing to wait, it always seems prudent to just wait for the next gen for better price and maybe twice the performance. But to wait for next, next gen? You really need to have patience.

Next year I'm going to have one hell of a DX11 Video Card, keep them coming.
Look how powerful they are now running at 1920x1200 Res that's if the game supports it, by the end of next year I think DX11 should be on every ones list along with Windows 7/8.

looks like they are migrating the 67 series to 68 series.. so 68 series might release as the 69 series....
Will bbe real confusion if consumers think that 6870 has more performance than 5870 without knowing that the 6870 is actually 6770 renamed as 6870.. sheesh.....
is amd taking a leaf out of nvidia book.
:(

I think you misread the chart.Anyway, I think AMD should wait for Nvidia to release a card that beats the 5970 before acting

Please tell me that the HD6870 is faster than the HD5870. I waited for months trying to get new GPUs and CPUs :(

And don't fail me again ATi with those fail resolutions and stuff.
