Submission + - AMD releases the Radeon HD 6790 (overclockers.com)

neersign writes: Aimed at the mid-to-upper range gaming segment, the 6790 offers full HD (1080p) gaming at only $149. It is aimed to sit between the 6850 and the 5770/6770 (OEM) while competing directly with the Nvidia Geforce GTx 550 Ti. Even though AMD's reference board has two 6-plug power inputs, a few of their partners are releasing them with only one. All the usual suspects have reviews out with benchmarks: BenchmarkReviews, bit-tech, TweakTown (by Sapphire), Tom's Hardware, HardwareSecrets, and Overclockers.

Submission + - AMD Radeon 6000 Series, Llano, Set to Debut (overclockers.com)

neersign writes: O ATI, ATI, wherefore art thou ATI? A cheap Shakespearean knock-off reference doesn’t really do justice to the way AMD has positioned itself currently with the pending Radeon 6000 series release along with its line of ”Llano” APUs But then, I’m not really much of a writer, and this ain’t no renaissance. AMD has closed the book on its successful history with ATI branding by recently folding ATI into the AMD name as one in the same. In doing so, the dramatic timing and importance of this shift is AMD making a statement that should not go discounted. They are saying AMD is bold. AMD is confident. AMD is ready to ring in a new era, changing the landscape upon which the game is played.
