Over the course of the past four months or so, AMD has been on a tear, releasing a slew of new DirectX 11-class GPUs at price points ranging from approximately $600 all the way on down to about $100. All the while, AMD was also up front about the release schedule for many upcoming, future products. If you remember back to some of our previous Radeon HD 5000 series coverage, we showed you a picture of this slide, that outlined AMD's plans to launch the GPUs codenamed Redwood and Cedar sometime in Q1 2010. Redwood became the Radeon HD 5670 and today we can finally spill the beans on the first iteration of Cedar.
