AMD might launch first 28nm GPUs in December

Volume shipments still in 2012


AMD is apparently planning to introduce the first round of its 28nm GPUs in early December, but don’t count on getting one for the holidays just yet.

According to heise.de, the rumoured launch date is December 6, but AMD won’t ship the new chips in volume for some time after that. Sources believe AMD will churn out a limited number of GPUs for qualification and some performance testing, but it will take a few additional weeks for them to ship in volume.

Details are still sketchy and it is unclear whether AMD will introduce entry level, mid range or high end parts first. In any case it’s nice to see any development on the graphics front. Neither AMD nor Nvidia have launched any new cards in 2011, apart from dual-GPU versions of existing high-end architectures, not to mention the fact that we’ve been stuck at 40nm for two and a half years.

However, the transition to 28nm seems to be proving problematic for AMD and Nvidia alike, so it would be wise to expect a rather slow launch schedule and ramps.
