We’re not sure what to make of it, especially given a recent leak showing the Radeon HD 6770 and HD 6750 as Barts XT and Pro cards. The aforementioned spec sheet touted the 6700 series as offering double the horsepower as its predecessor, but if Barts is powering the 6800 range, does this mean it will end up only marginally faster than the 5800 cards it is replacing? And where does that leave the enthusiast Antilles HD 6900 cards made up of dual Cayman cores?
There is certainly a lot of smoke still up in the air, and the latest leak doesn’t bring much in the way of technical specifications or performance details to help clear it up. But what seems to be catching everyone's attention is a reference to an as-yet unannounced technology dubbed 'Eyespeed', and the fact that the reference card seems to have five outputs: two DVI, one HDMI and two Mini DisplayPort. Needless to say you should take all this with a healthy dose of skepticism until AMD makes an official announcement – hopefully, it won't be too long before that happens.
