With a scheduled release date of October 13th, AMD aims to apply the Radeon HD 6700 featuring a 256-bit memory interface, doubling up on the HD 5700 series' 128-bit.

The Radeon HD 6700 could use (relatively) slower memory - perhaps 1200 MHz, or the same as the HD 5800 series, and the HD 6800 with super-fast 1600 MHz - nearly double the speed as typical Nvidia Geforce 400 series cards.

The 256-bit memory interface comes as a surprise considering that the current Radeon HD 5700 Series features a 128-bit memory interface, but it could make sense as all reports indicate that the upcoming HD 6000 series graphics cards are all about evolution.

Radeon HD 6000 cards will offer a significant performance boost over the current generation, using a wider memory bus could be one of the ways of boosting performance while using the same production process, but it would also increase production costs. If the ADM RadeonHD 6700 features a 256-bit bus, it may suggest the HD 6700 would offer more options in the $180-$250 sweet spot than the HD 5000 series.
