AMD reveals HD 6000M Series


AMD details HD 6000M Series

AMD has just released some juicy details on the latest additions to it mobile graphics lineup, the HD 6000M Series.

These DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.1 supporting cards will pack in all of AMD's latest display technologies including HD3D (3D), Eyefinity (multi-monitor), and EyeSpeed (application acceleration) as well as its UVD accelerated video playback technology.

The range runs from the modest HD 6300M with its 80 stream processors, 8 texture units, and 4 ROPs all the way up to the HD 6900M that packs in 960 stream processors, 48 texture units, and 32 ROPs, the latter getting you 1.3teraFLOPs of compute power and being the exclusive reserve of very big, very heavy and very expensive laptops no doubt. Something like the HD 6700M with its 480 stream processors, 24 texture units, and 8 ROPs will probably be a more sensible model to aim for if you're looking for a sensibly priced gaming laptop.

The new chips will be on show in some notebooks here at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas so we hope to grab some hands-on time with them if we can later on today. We'll report back on how they hold up just as soon as we can.
