AMD Expected to Launch DX11 GPU on Sept. 10

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 63 comments

Could the ATI DirectX 11 card be launching on September 10? Could be!

Earlier this year during June, AMD demonstrated at Computex the first DirectX 11 GPU, and most recently at Quakecon, the chip maker is showing off its latest silicon once again.

Expreview got a hold of an AMD presentation from Quakecon that reads, "On Thursday, September 10, 2009, you won't believe your eyes… Please join us as we unveil a new PC experience. Formal invitation with more details to come."

Given the timing of the slide and the recent demonstration of the ATI "Evergreen" DX11 hardware, it's a safe assumption that AMD will be launching something next month.

    DirectX 11 is the most anticipated directx version by me ever.

    It's about time to show some PC muscles to all those console gamers, and about time for a PC comeback ...

    Let's hope so and that it blows the 4800 series away.

    Wow replace an 8800 GT? That's a great new card still. My ATI Radeon 9700 pro is becoming a bit outdated though. :)

    If the 4770 is any indication, I look forward to high-end 40nm GPU's.

    HonisTo bad the AMD CPU is still a bottleneck on high end graphics cards.Looking forward to the next CPU from AMD

    Did you check out the new upcoming Catalyst 9.8 drivers? Big news there (gaming improvements) with an AMD CPU combined with their graphics cards.
