AMD Releases Radeon HD 6570 and HD 6670 Mainstream GPUs

AMD logoAfter the official release of the Radeon HD 6450 a coule of weeks ago, AMD today released the sub-$100 Radeon HD 6670 and Radeon HD 6570 graphics cards, which will eventually replace the Radeon HD 5670 and Radeon HD 5570 respectively.

Both cards are based on AMD's "Turks" GPU, which is part of the company's Northern Islands family of chips. Turks implements the Northern Islands series? architectural improvements while also implementing a larger number of SIMDs in order to give AMD a mid-cycle performance boost on the same TSMC 40nm process.

Turks has 6 SIMDs, giving it 480 SPs and 24 texture units. The ROP count remains unchanged to 8 ROPs compared to the company's Redwood GPU (Radeon HD 5670 and Radeon HD 5570), while the memory bus is still 128 bits wide. Turks also implements UVD3, improved texture filtering, HDMI 1.4a, a revised tessellation unit, and DisplayPort 1.2 support.

At 800MHz the Radeon HD 6670 has a 25MHz core clock advantage over the HD 5670, while the 1GHz memory clock is identical to the 5670. However, the 6670 has a 20% shading and texturing improvement over the 5670. The 6670 has a 66W TDP and 12W idle TDP.

AMD will be launching the 6670 at $99 and the 6570 at $79, putting both cards right in the middle of the competitive sub-$100 market. Competing cards include the Radeon HD 5670, the $99 Radeon HD 5770, the GeForce GTS 450, and the GeForce GT 440.
