has there been any spoilers released for the 6900 series? Is the 6900 series suppose to be a high-end card that beats the 5970 or a mid-range card?
It's definitely going to be the high-end series as an update to the 5800 series. It will include from low to high: 6950 > 6970 > 6990, which will be a dual GPU card replacing the 5970. All will outperform the current mid-range 6800 series. Look out for the debut on or around December 13th.
