Will the AMD 9xxx series be 28nm or 20nm?

I really am confused here, different sources are going both ways, and Guru3d said it's leaked to be 20nm. Do you guys have any reputable sources that state which it is?

At first, the main release cards will be 28nm with the 20nm models releasing later on next year or further on. Thats what I have seen so far.

From what I heard, Apple screwed over the GPU companies by releasing 20nm GPUs with a few of their products next year, so we're probably not going to see anything smaller than 28nm until late 2014 or early 2015. BUT, If AMD does release 20nm GPUs, it would be because they've partnered with Apple recently. SO there is still a lot of speculation.

It would last you a long time, if you add a second card I guarantee it will.

That should run fine, overclocking will help, but there should be no performance loss.

Running 2, one will be nowhere near bottlenecking at stock speeds even.

Nobody knows if it will bottleneck, no specs have been released, other than its supposed to out perform a 780.
