The Radeon HD6900 series has been released, and early reviews are saying that the higher model HD6970 bests Nvidia's GTX 580 (which is the higher model of the GTX's 500 series), while at a price point comparable to the GTX 570. For the 6900 series, there are two models: the HD6970 and the HD6950. The HD6970 hasĀ 1,536 stream processors, an 880MHz core clock speed, and 2GB of GDDR5 RAM. The HD6950 has 1,408 stream processors, an 800MHz core clock speed, and 2GB of GDDR5 RAM. They are available now for $370 and $300, respectively. Sadly, we don't have one in for review. But, as this is the internet, reviews are all over the major tech websites.
