AMD on track to deliver 28nm GPUs in 2011

Written by


Expects to beat Nvidia
AMD is on track to ship its first 28nm GPUs in late 2011 and it will probably do it ahead of Nvidia.

In the latest conference call, interim CEO Thomas Seifert said AMD would be at the forefront of the transition to 28nm, i.e. it will have the chips ready before Nvidia.

"We have working silicon in-house and remain on-track to deliver the first members of what we expect will be another industry-leading GPU family to market later this year,” he said.

Seifert pointed out that AMD’s 28nm GPUs will be based on bulk process technology, so in theory both TSMC and Globalfoundries will be able to produce them. However, the processes used by the foundries are quite different and AMD would have to redesign the chips for each partner.

AMD VP Rick Bergman believes the new 28nm GPU series could have a significant effect on AMD’s revenue, much like its first DirectX 11 cards.

More than two years ago, AMD pioneered 40nm technology with the HD 4770, but the transition to 28nm has been pushed back due to slow demand caused by the economic downturn. By the time AMD and Nvidia transition to 28nm, the 40nm process will be one of the most enduring production processes in recent history, at least in the graphics industry.

Nothing new here, this has been known for some months. Read Semiaccurate if you want scoops.

Wish i had money though.

i'm more interested in HD7k series vs GTX600 performance.

So, After they delay thousand times bulldozer. All drivers they build for the 'so cool hardware' are not working while releasing new hardware. Yet, they expect end users to believe that anything reading AMD would be on time anywhere.

I'd say it's rather funny.

good hardware is worthless without good drivers, so faster to market doesn't always mean better.

AMD's slow transition to a smaller process was not due to the economic downturn. It was due to TSMCs failure to produce the 32nM node. Now they have SI waiting for 28nM.

Quoting genetix:

Not going to explain why the nvidia drivers are SOO COOL like the ones on 590 that literally burned the card, please stop telling nonsense, here is a memorandum in HONOR of the great drivers from nvidia...SHUT UP:

Any news on what core arch the new 28nm will use? Are they moving to their new Next Core or what ever it was called?
