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

NordicHardwareNordicHardwareBased 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.

    AMD has done well with it's acquisition of ATi.
    I absolutely love how AMD and Nvidia trade blows with each other. :P

    I expect this to be much the same, the 6990 was amazing.
    Obviously like everyone else reading this comment, I am looking forward to seeing some reviews and benchmarks/comparisons to the 6 vs the 7 series. :)

    I wonder what Nvidia has as well, kinda stupid I just got my 580 and plan on getting another one within a few weeks, especially with these new cards just around the corner.. :\

    Can't Wait! I'm hoping to get a 7950 which should absolutely slaughter my GTS 250 (~3.5x the performance) at roughly the same power consumption :) totally awesome

    Hello AMD,

    Can the graphics team cross train with the processor team?

    They making a terrific job in the graphics design, the processor team might learn something from them.

    GCN = Game Cube?

    Hopefully they release this in time for Ivy Bridge FTW.
