    Early word on AMDs new graphics card

    According to our own sources, the new HD 5870 offers over 1600 Stream processors. Amazingly AMD doubled the number of SIMD units from 10 to 20. Since each SIMD unit contains 16 5-D units and a Quad-TMU overall, that means we count 1600 stream processors and 80 TMUs. We are talking about a new videocard whose core speed is at 850 MHz and whose 256-bit GDDR5 runs at 1200 MHz all for the suggested retail of $399! AMD is expecting HD 5870 to come close to the performance of a HD 4870-X2 or the GTX 295.
    What is outstanding is that we are hearing that the HD 5870 will perform at just under 28 watts at idle and peak below 190 watts maximum!! That is quite a challenge for Nvidia to meet or beat in their own upcoming GT 300 series as the performance to watt ratio is outstanding.

    If this turns out to be true then it looks like it'll be a great card.

    Those specifications are extremely high, they match if not exceed the 4870 X2 on a Single PCB, for regular users this part might not mean much

    Amazingly AMD doubled the number of SIMD units from 10 to 20. Since each SIMD unit contains 16 5-D units and a Quad-TMU overall
    but for people like me that's insane, to double the amount with then next release is an impressive feet.

    I haven't had an ATI card since my Visiontek 9600 GT. Man that was a long time ago, but this looks promising. I might go ATi next update for my PC. Which I am due for a new GPU or maybe 2 of them this time.

    Say you're AMD, and you make graphics chips that nearly double in performance with every generation. Yet games haven't been getting all that much more demanding over time. What would you do with all of that excess power, especially if you wanted to stir up interest in your latest product?

    AMD's answer at the moment is a new feature it calls Eyefinity. Here's the basic concept: through the magic of its next-generation GPU and an array of compact DisplayPort connections, a single GPU can drive up to six high-megapixel displays for gaming at resolutions that boggle the mind.

    More news, unfortunately in German. However, the second slide has the specs:


    5870:

    2.72 TFlops (4870 is 1.2).

    Core clock: 850 Mhz (4870 is 750).

    Stream processors: 1600 (4870 is 800).

    Frame buffer: 1GB, 4.8 Gbps (4870 is 512MB/1GB, 3.6 Gbps).

    Max/idle board power: 188W/27W (can't find 4870).

    Max res: 3 x 2560 x 1600 (4870 is 2560 x 1600, don't know about multiple monitors).

    http://news.ati-forum.de/index.php/n...-informationen

    Reviews for this should be interesting as it looks like a big step forwards.

    Thanks.

    I saw those earlier, but someone at Beyond3D said they originated at AMD. Someone else there said that the NDA expires in a week, so not long to wait.

    Why would anyone want a NDA on a top-line product unless the drivers suck? Don't you want to brag a bit?
