Back in February, AMD pushed a trinity of entry- to mid-level cards in the Radeon HD 6000 series to OEM builders. Now, those three cards, the Radeon HD 6670, 6570 and 6450, are said to be nearing their retail debut. Hit the jump to find out more about the launch of their standalone variants.
AMD’s interim CEO Thomas Seifert appeared to be enjoying his position as top dog on Friday when he reported a whopping$1.65 billion in revenue, and over $375 million in net income. In addition to the unusually strong financial numbers, he also reported that AMD has shipped over 1.3 million Fusion APUs to AMD partners since deliveries began back in November. That’s a very impressive statistic for such a new part. Fusion based notebooks only just started trickling out over the past few weeks, but based on these figures we expect this will change very soon.
Fusion wasn’t the only winner in AMD’s portfolio for 2010 either, Seifert was proud to report that over 35 million Radeon HD 5000 and HD 6000 series DirectX 11 GPUs have shipped since they hit the market just over one year ago. Numbers like these make the PC one of the bestselling gaming platforms on the market, a point AMD was no doubt trying to drive home.
Intel still dwarfs AMD’s sales several times over, but I’m sure everyone here is glad to see a competitive AMD back on the prowl.
