"AMD hasn't officially announced anything with regards to the next generation Radeon HD series. We know it's coming, but there's no official word on models, specifications or clock speeds yet. What we do have are potential leaks and the speculation that comes with all of that. This chart has been leaked from two different sources showing the performance leap that will come from the Radeon HD 6700 "Barts" series. It's all unconfirmed, but we certainly hope that they're true, given the claims of significant performance improvements." | more

It's not worth the power increase to go from 5750 to 6750 under load.

Perhaps a 6670 would suffice if it does not go over 75W under load?

I'll have to wait for a 28nn GPU to come out.

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

2 pairs of Insignia NS-B2111s (front/rear), Pioneer SP-C21 Center Speaker, and 12" Velodyne Sub

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

Yes, I agree. DX11 uses tessellation to make those shadows and shaders to look ultra good. This will help boost the speed of those new games and push the boundaries of Microsoft PC visual eye-candy. I'm not sure however what tessellation would do for DX10 or DX9, but these 6700 cards seem like something worth waiting for.

DirectX 11 is the future of gaming and having better tessellation is in fact the main reason the power has doubled.
