AMD/ATI ''Barts'' GPU Specs, Board Shot Leaked

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 32 comments

It's a shame that these names don't make it to the production versions.

We all know that AMD/ATI is prepping the next generation of its GPU, which will likely come to market as the Radeon HD 6000 series.

While AMD has yet to make any of it official, there are already leaked details and some potential specs floating around the internet. Thanks to Chinese sources, we may have some details on the successor to the Radeon HD 5770, known as "Barts".

TechPowerUp has been keeping an eye on what's posted on Chinese site ChipHell, and has pictures of what could be the XT version of Barts.

Perhaps even more interesting is this presentation slide that AMD shared with one of its partners.

Hopefully AMD will have something official to share soon.

    At least the news is tech related... maybe they will release an 'updated' version of the story down the road.

    Really, I mean, zoom in on that pic, and tell me it does not look like a 4890 that has been heavily used, I mean really, look at the dust buildup, from a new test card really!!!

    Why post this as an article, I mean, its just rubbish, with no substance and pure speculation and no fact and crap pictures!!!

    Does anyone really care about the GTX460?
    It just seems odd to me that there is this urgency in AMD to take down that segment of the market.

    It's the only GPU NV makes that actually sells decently.

    is that a serious question? they're selling like hotcakes, and i've never had a hotcake before, nor do i know what it is

    but that's how the saying goes =[

    @moricon, there are many things on that board which indicate they are not any of the current or older ones...
    Noticed the o/p connectors on that board? It looks like it has 2 mini-displayports, 1 HDMI and 1 DVI.
    Also it has only 1 Crossfire connector, so its likely a HD 67xx series...

    I think by the time this comes out it will be a little too late...
    nVidia has the heads up now with the 460.

    AMD should instead work on a very cost effective option to the 480.

    So AMD should just give up the most lucrative market segment to nvidia and concentrate on very low sales ultra high end? Sounds like a plan. A really bad one.

    Too little too late? AMD launched their 5xxx cards long before the NV 4xx cards came to market, and this card is only going to be part of the arsenal.
