HD5XXX have 3D support. For HD6XXX i guess once again we don't have
schedule and when we will be able to support them but it should be
quite easy most of the 3D engine on the lower end are the same as
evergreen (HD5XXX) so it shouldn't need too much work. Anyway it's up
to you to pickup one you like, you might take advantage of HD5XXX not
being the lastest on the market to get nice deal :o)
