Spy shots show next-gen Radeons

— 6:00 AM on September 8, 2010

Fresh GPU rumors ahoy! This time, images of two purportedly unannounced graphics products from AMD have appeared in a pair of threads in the Chiphell forums. You'll need to register to see them... or you can just hit VR-Zone, which grabbed the pictures and posted them for everyone to see.

The shots show an alleged "Cayman XT" card, which may make it into stores as the Radeon HD 6870. As VR-Zone points out, that card looks quite a bit like the current 5870, but it has more display outputs—five in total. Based on that blurry photo, I'm guessing those outputs are dual DVI, dual Mini DisplayPort, and a single HDMI.

Next up: Caicos, which could debut as the Radeon HD 6350. That part is a little less exciting, being a low-end product and all, but VR-Zone has relayed a surprising amount of details about it. Word is that this card will have a larger, faster graphics chip than AMD's existing Radeon HD 5450, although said chip will still have to make do with a 64-bit memory interface and DDR3 memory.

Besides the obvious, these leaks may be hints that AMD has a top-to-bottom lineup of Radeon HD 6000-series graphics cards up its sleeve. Nvidia, meanwhile, still hasn't released the lower-end elements of its GeForce 400 series.
