Default 22nd October launch for AMD Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850

It is confirmed that AMD has changed its mind for the second time and will launch the Radeon HD 6000 Series on 22 October 2010. The launch was initially slated for 12 October but was pushed back a week to the 19th prior to this. Fudzilla has also confirmed that the Radeon HD 6000 Series will launch on the 22nd.

AMD will be releasing the Radeon HD 6870 and Radeon HD 6850 cards first. Based on previously leaked benchmarks by some Chinese websites, the Radeon HD 6870 will only be a little faster than an overclocked Radeon HD 5850. There sure is some name-play going on here; the x800 naming convention has traditionally been given to high-end single GPU cards but it seems that the Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850 will be replacements for the current HD 5700 Series instead.

It is almost certain that the new high-end (wow, confusing) will be labelled under as the Radeon HD 6900 Series instead.
