AMD 7xxx series info revealed...

Recommended Posts

Pulled this straight from [H]...

 

Here is the latest... launch during CES 2012 (Jan 10-12).

Starting next week, AMD is going to organize Tech Days in several destinations around the globe, such as London or Paris - during which the company is going to present 28nm Radeon HD 7000 series.

 

There is a lot of rumors flying around the web, some of which are spun by AMD themselves to raise confusion, as the Radeon HD 7000 series is going to mix the existing VLIW4 and VLIW5 architectures with the "Graphics Core Next" (GCN), introduced during June's Fusion Development Summit held in Bellevue, WA.

I've edited in the 7970PRO speeds for clarity.

 

Some quotes from XS...

Radeon HD7970PRO:

1920 processing cores @ 900mhz

120 Texture Memory Units

1.5GB GDDR5 (384/256bit) @ 5ghz

MSRP $350

 

For Comparison:

 

HD6970

1536 Stream Processors @ 880mhz

96 Texture Units

2GB GDDR5 (256bit) @ 5ghz

 

 

B3D's neilz is saying there won't be much of a perf/transistor improvement.

 

 

Quick summary of change from AffenJack:

 

 

Quote:

7970XT against 6970 would be:

33% More Shaders

33% More Texture Units

13,6% Higher Clock Speed

65% Higher Memory Bandwidth

51% more Gflops

 

Add a bit higher Efficiency of GCN to it and we are at a normal 70% jump like from 4870 to 5870.

 

So there you have it... the rumors have taken shape and seem pretty firm at this point.

This isn't accurate though ;) 6970 has 2GB of VRAM Also the link is dead

6970 will definitively have 2GB, also link is broke.

Umm, what?? all 6970s are 2GB (so also a fail for the 7970 because eyefinity will surely suffer)

fixed! I was having trouble pasting things and making the quotes work. Think the 2gb was a typo on the other post. Should be good :D

Am looking forward to seeing some benchmarks on the Radeon HD7970XT. Passed on the 6000 series but might make the jump to the 7970 if the numbers look good.

Why are they using all these old buzz words again?

its sad how much they must be hurting

 

if you are going to call something FX or PRO it better be damn good

I'm still using a 5850 , skipped on the 6xxx series too so looks like I'm due for the XT :D

If i'm not mistaken, AMD/ATI have been using XT and PRO for years and years and years and years
