AMD is on the verge of introducing a quicker version of its $99 Radeon HD 5670 based on different silicon, according to a report by Inpai. The Chinese website claims the new version will be out this month with 50% more stream processors and a slightly lower core clock speed than its predecessor.

The current Radeon HD 5670 is AMD's quickest product based on the Redwood graphics processor. Reportedly, however, the updated model will be based on the same Juniper chip that powers the Radeon HD 5770 and 5750—just with fewer stream processors. The motive behind the switch could be simple: perhaps yields of Juniper GPUs aren't all that good, and AMD needs to sell off parts with too many faulty SPs to make the cut for the 5700 series.

Inpai's article says the Juniper-based Radeon HD 5670 will have 640 stream processors and a 750MHz clock speed, compared to 400 SPs and a 775MHz core clock for the existing part. Both cards should have 512MB of GDDR5 RAM running through a 128-bit interface. The Radeon HD 5750, by contrast, has 720 SPs and a 700MHz speed.

probably not because they will stop making the first kind of this card so this is like a c stepping

Do you think they will keep the 5670 name? The card will be slightly different so I would figure they would give it a different name like the 5690 or the 5730. I know there is a 5730M but not desktop.

its something like a phenom x3 it is a failed 5700 or one that has to many faults in it so they can still sell a failed card instead of destrooiing it that also happens whit a phenom x4 if one core isn't good enough tand all the other cores are black edition than they would make more profit when selling it as a x3 be than a normal x4
