AMD Shows Radeon Roadmap for Early 2011

Although Nvidia is now wearing the crown for having the fastest DirectX 11 graphics part on the planet, AMD isn't going to sit idly and let the competition keep the lead.

In a recent investor conference, AMD showed what its plans are for the Radeon for the near future.

In early 2011, we'll see the Radeon HD 6990 become the new flagship model for the graphics lineup, as well as new entry-level or value-oriented Turks and Caicos GPUs.

Those on the go will also find new Mobility Radeons from the new Vancouver series, which features codenames from the area in British Columbia.

    C'mon price drops so I can upgrade from my lowly 2 yr old GTX260. Granted I don't do that much PC gaming anymore so this card suits me fine its just simply time for an upgrade to DX11.

    So I take it by the looks on that graph arrow that AMD has no plans on replacing the Radeon 5770 at least in the first quater of 2011.

    Anyone else notice how AMD is using some of the same codenames with past Windows OSes condenames like Whistler and Blackcomb?
