Chiphell the chinese website unveiled a new slides , now it's about the next AMD Radeon HD6900 series graphic cards codenamed 'Cayman' from the Northern Islands series using the VLIW4 stream processor architecture .
The slide show two new model the HD 6970 (Cayman XT) and HD 6950 (Cayman Pro) theses are considered to be the next high end graphic cards in the markets which will be available the next month (late November) , 
the only difference between the HD 6970 and the HD 6950 is the power consumption as the slide show , so we can tell that it's a new architecture design that make the difference .


The slide show <300W for the Radeon HD 6970 as a power compulsion so it use 8 - and 6-pins additional power connectors,
and for the Radeon HD 6950 the TDP will be less than 225 watts , so for sure it use two 6-pin auxiliary power connector.
Also these two cards will have 2 times faster geometric processing than the previous generation (it's unclear which one Cypress, or Hemlock), and it's equipped with 2GB of GDDR5 .
The cards outputs are two DVI and two mini-DisplayPort 1.2 with HDMI 1.4 output
