  1. Rumor: "Blackcomb" is AMD Mobility Radeon HD 6000 series flagship Donanimhaber reports that the AMD Mobility Radeon HD 6000 series will be headed by a GPU codenamed Blackcomb. Of course, Blackcomb will be based on a desktop chip, presumably either Barts or Cayman. For the Mobility Radeon HD 5000 series, AMD skipped the Cypress GPU completely, with the top Mobility Radeon HD 5870 being mainstream Juniper, featuring 800 SP and 128-bit memory. Blackcomb, however, will feature a 256-bit memory interface, and the number of functional units are expected to increase dramatically. VR-Zone
