Radeon HD 5770 5750 [Rumour] ATI Radeon HD 5700 prices, release dates revealed

Following closely on the heels of the HD 5800 series launch on 22nd September is the Juniper HD 5700 series. The 5700 series consists of two variants, HD 5750 “Corvette” and HD 5770 “Countach”, named after the legendary sports cars Chevrolet Corvette and Lamborghini Countach. Which were blazing fast, it must be added.

Bright Side of News reports pricing of $199 for the HD 5770 and $149 for the HD 5750, as expected.

The HD 5700 is expected to release one month after HD 5800, during the Windows 7 release time frame, i.e. October 22nd/23rd.

The 5770 and 5750 will replace previous generation 4890 and 4870, respectively, which will reach their EOL. The rumoured specifications for the Juniper die mirror that of RV770 – 800 SP / 40 TMU / 16 ROP. Recent rumours have surfaced reporting 960 SP, but all still remains open to speculation. However, the 5700 series is rumoured to run a 128-bit memory interface – half that of the 4800 series. Even with high speed GDDR5, the 5700 may end up being bandwidth starved – much like the HD 4850 or the HD 4770. However, since ATI are replacing the 4800 series with 5700 in the same price range, they must have a trick or two up their sleeves. (Rumours say 960 SP and 160/192-bit memory) They surely couldn’t charge the same price for a lower performing (DX11 or not) next-gen product that is powered by a smaller die, could they? The Juniper die is rumoured to pack in 1.2 billion transistors – more than 250 million more than the RV770. That should suggest considerably improvement over the RV770 as well.
