Report: AMD May Soon Launch Radeon HD 6930
It appears that AMD is preparing a new variant of the Radeon 6000-series to compete with Nvidia's GTX 560 graphics card.
According to Chinese site MyDrivers, AMD may be releasing a Radeon HD 6930 card, code-named Cayman CE, which will get 1280 stream processors and 80 texture units, down from 1408 and 88 on the Radeon HD 6950. The GPU clock will drop to 750 MHz and the memory will fall to 4800 MHz.
The board will be available with a 256-bit memory interface and a choice of 1 GB or 2 GB of GDDR5 memory. Expect the 6930 to be priced below $200.
In related news, Fudzilla also got its hands on the upcoming Radeon HD 7000 supposed pricing. The actual numbers should not be too surprising. The HD 7950 will apparently be debut with a target price of $449, while high-end HD 7970 cards should cost $549.
