Oh, boy. The slippery slope of getting back into PC hardware has resulted in more PC related posts.
Today’s interesting tidbit comes in the form of a Radeon HD 6000 launch rumor. According to an HIS senior marketing manager, we should expect the next video card series from AMD/ATI to be anounced around the fourth quarter of this year. Excited? Well, not really.
We can expect bumps in performance, but forget about landscape altering new technologies. This is more about getting more performance while lowering power consumption — “efficiency” is the word I’m looking for. I’m all for more performance at a lower power (and hopefully monetary) costs, but I doubt I’ll be upgrading any time soon.
