AMD readies three Radeon HD 6000 series cards this month

AMD has been a busy bee of late. There are murmurings that the company will be launching three new graphics cards under the Radeon HD 6000 banner this month.

According to DigiTimes, the company will be launching its 6670, 6570 and 6450 cards on April 19.

All three will be aimed at the entry-level and mid-range markets. Although these have already hit the OEM markets in DDR3 memory versions, sources have told the mag that the three new graphics cards will now use GDDR5 memory instead.

AMD recently launched the Radeon HD 6790 graphics card, which supposedly has a better price point than rival Nvidia‘s GTX 550 Ti.

Because of this success the sources believe that AMD will go on to follow lower price points to further carve space for itself.

Last week we heard about the Radeon HD 6450 GPU, which it said it would sell for $55. It is thought that the cheap price tag is being used to compete with Intel’s HD Graphics 3000 core available on the Sandy Bridge Core i5 and i7 processors.

No rest for the wicked – there is also word that AMD is already preparing for the launch of its next generation Radeon HD 7000 series GPUs.
