6970 replacement specs
900 Mhz stock core clock
dual stock fans
Support for 6 monitor on one card without external box
Drivers for PLP and infinite adjustable resolutions
75-100% X-fire scaling
Since 32nm was poopcanned, my wish is that breaking the PCI-E spec on the current halo cards does not become SOP, and was only done to get the most out of being stuck on 40nm for the hd6/gtx5 generation. Hoping for hd6990/gtx590 Px or better at/or under 300watts
edit: ooh, and at least 3gb vram for a single GPU..enabling higher aa/texture quality at eyefinity/nvsurround resolutions.
I think we will easily get to 2000 SP's, there are 3072 on a 6990 so i don't see why a single card wont reach 2000. the performance is obviously needed.
What i really want to see is some serious amount of the cost savings passed on to the consumer. Now im in the UK so please realize that what is value in the USA and other places in the world is not necessarily value elsewhere.
What im talking about is a card that has GTX 450/HD 5770 performance for a sub £100 price tag. Realistically these cards should be lower by now anyway, the only reason they are not is because there was no direct replacement for the 5770 in the 6 series line up.
Say about 1200 shaders
192 bit bus
850 ish Core
1 GB GDDR5 should be plenty.
There should be a direct replacement for Performance Stream and Mainstream.
My Wish List
HD 7750 and HD 7770
Since AMD has chaneged to VLIW4 from VLIW5 Shader Unit Architecture. So they should be able to get it more tweaked. and
Shader processor = 800 SP
Memor Bandwidth = 192 bit memory architecture, 1 gb ddr5 with low level latency Texture Allocation = 48
Rastering OPs = 24
Max Board Power = 120W
Idle Board Power = 15W
So the compute power will be around 1.2-1.4 teraflops
Shader Processor = 960SP
Memory Bandwidth = 192 bit memory architecture, 1 gb ddr5 with low level latency Texture Allocation = 48
Rastering OPs = 32
Maximum Board power = 125W
Idle board power = 15W
compute power would be around 1.3-1.5 teraflops
