AMD Radeon HD 6950
The new AMD Radeon HD 6950 graphics card is based on the 40nm processing with 2.64 Billion transistors.It is the traditional lower power card using a slightly cut-down GPU.It has 1408 stream processors running at 800MHz core clock speed, 88 texture units, and 32 ROPs attached to the 2GB of 5GHz GDDR5 RAM which provides 160GB/sec of bandwidth.Its TDP is 200W and the idle power is 20W.
The new AMD Radeon HD 6900 series graphics card is based on the latest VLIW4 shader architecture.AMD has implanted dual-setup engines (graphics engines in the slides).The GPUs are parallel, and could be considered multi-core processors. The addition to using a dual-setup engine now, instead of just a singular setup engine, increases that parallelism to an even greater extreme.
