ATi’s 6 Series May Arrive this November

The red faction is going to push hard against the green team come this fall. AMD/ATi wants to put Nvidia to the test and they might lower prices and start cranking up the pressure. In addition, ATI may announce the 6 series, codenamed Southern Islands, in October with vendors starting to sell the card in November.

To defend its market share, AMD plans to cut prices for its ATI Radeon HD 5000-series GPUs in the near future. The action also serves as preparation for the upcoming Southern Islands GPUs, the sources noted.

This is great news for consumers, and great for competition. Let’s just hope Nvida can keep pace and wont be months late with their counter product.
