ChipHell recently posted a leaked slide from AMD. On this slide were details of two of AMD's upcoming GPUs. These GPUs are being called Barts PRO and Barts XT GPUs. They are aimed at NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 460 series of GPUs, which is currently running at about $170 in price. Guru3D picks up the story with some more details:
The slide claims Barts is based on the Cypress dual engine architecture and features full Cypress AA and pixel render performance. The Barts XT will feature 12 SIMDs, 48 texture units, 960 shaders, 32 ROPs, and 256-bit memory bus. The chip has a 850MHz core, 1GB GDDR5 clocked at 4200MHz and a TDP of over 150W. The Barts PRO is a cut-down version with 10 SIMDs, 40 texture units, 800 shaders, 32 ROPs and 256-bit memory bus. Core frequency is expected to be 700 to 725MHz, with 1GB GDDR5 clocked at 4000MHz and a TDP of under 150W.
