[Rumour] ATI Radeon HD 5870 architecture diagram exposed

Chiphell, who were dubiously credited with leaking the first Cypress pictures are back at it again – this time leaking the architecture diagram for the Cypress GPU. Interestingly, Chiphell is teasing a review soon.

The rather blurred image, at first glance, looks just like the RV770 – with two chunks of the main processing units (SIMD cores, TMU units, etc.) in the middle instead of one. Basically, just doubling on RV770’s processing units, as we already know. The “Display Connectors” has been replaced by “Eyefinity Display Controllers” as expected, and the “CrossfireX Sideport” in the RV770 is simply a “CrossfireX Connector” for Cypress. Obviously this is just an overview – it is what lies inside these units that matters.
