Next up on AMD GPG’s relentless release schedule is Cedar – the entry level GPU that will cover ATI Radeon HD 5400 and 5500 series. The card is expected to feature 200 shaders, which is an impressive boost from the 80 shaders featured in the Radeon HD 4300/4500 series.

Arab Hardware have pictured a low profile card that is powered by a Cedar GPU. Do note that this is an engineering sample from way back in October 2009, and the final heatsink and appearance are likely to change.

We can expect the entry level HD 5400 card to be passively cooled, and Cedar in general to boast of extremely frugal power consumption. The HD 5400/5500 series are expected to be released on February 6th, 2010. More details are likely to leak as we lead up to the release.
