Official Details on 28nm Radeon HD 7000 Coming Dec. 5

By - Source: NordicHardware | B 7 comments

What will you be doing come Monday, December 5th? If you are like us here at Tom's Hardware, you'll be waiting for the official details on AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 7000 to be announced.

Based on information published by NordicHardware, AMD is set to officially announce details on its upcoming Radeon HD 7000 series graphic cards in London on Monday, December 5th. The Radeon HD 7000 series GPUs will be based on the 28 nanometer fabrication process, as mentioned in early October.

The cards will utilize a new GCN architecture, which is expected to be its biggest advancement in GPU architecture since Radeon HD 2000 series. Some of the questions on users' minds are: will the first release be the mobile or desktop version, and will it utilize PCI-Express Gen 3 and will it feature Rambus' XDR2 DRAM memory instead of GDDR5?

All these questions and more will (hopefully) be answered by AMD in a little less than a week in London, when the first official information will be released. Stay tuned as more details trickle out.

    Just hope it's not another bulldozer. Different but not much better.

    Hopefully they're pretty damn fast. Isn't Kepler supposed to be 2-4x the performance per watt than Fermi? So that could be 2x the power while using half the power or 50% faster while using 2/3rds the power, something like that. Regardless, hopefully competition means great value.

    I suspect that this series will simply be a modest improvement to 6K.

    Why? Because marketing people would call it anything other than 7K if it was leaps and bounds better. Or, more often than not, just to infuriate the people trying to buy products.

    I think it will be awesome, another coup like 5xxx was. I think this because it's on a better manufacturing process, not the same process like 6xxx was. Also because we are due for another jump in performance, since 6xxx was only an evolution, not a revolution. 7xxx simply can't be "a modest improvement".
