    AMD Rebrands again, 7670 for OEMs uses Caicos GPU from 6670

    Las Vegas' annual CES gadget-fest is almost upon us, and system integrators are going to want to show off desktop PCs with all the latest graphics cards.

    Trouble is, look past the recently-introduced Radeon HD 7970, and you'll find that brand spankin' new GPUs are few and far between. NVIDIA's next-generation GeForce is nowhere to be seen, and AMD's one-and-only Radeon 7000-series part is tough to justify at over £400.

    OEMs need an alternative, and AMD has quietly obliged with the introduction of the Radeon HD 7670. The new card, spotted in recent desktop PC announcements and found tucked away in AMD's product pages, features an 800MHz core, 480 stream processors, 24 texture units and eight ROPs. That's joined by up to 1GB of GDDR5 memory hooked up to a 128-bit interface.

    Sound familiar? It should, as the Radeon HD 7670 appears to be the same as the Radeon HD 6670 launched in April last year.

      I'd expect to see GCN top to bottom with the 8000 series cards, I'm just glad that the 77xx and up are all new parts.

        The 6670 is really an awesome card for the sub $100 market and keeping it around until the 28nm production rate goes up makes perfect sense. As Fusion success continues this card also mates up with Llano and hopefully Trinity later on perfectly.
