AMD Expected to Launch DX11 GPU on Sept. 10

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.

    O le crap, I was hoping to see at least a nvidia peep about GT300, guess 58xx it is....

    now if the ATI AIBs stop being gay and offer good lifetime overclock w voltmod warranties then I would stop complaining where GT300 is....

    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 ...

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 My ATI Radeon 9700 pro is becoming a bit outdated though.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

  • shabaa
    Ahhh but when will the DX11 games be out? 2-3 years?

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