Re: AMD Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850 now available.
If AMD had kept to their previous numbering system they would have marketed them as the HD 6770 and HD 6750.

My understanding is they plan to keep producing the HD 5770 as competition (at about the same price point) for the Nvidia GTS 450 and did not want to cause confusion having a HD 5770 and HD 6770 at the same time. Personally I think it will cause more confusion for people who do not keep up with the latest hardware news.

As I mentioned in my previous post the HD 69xx series (6970/6950) are the replacements for the HD 5870 and HD 5850.
