AMD Radeon HD 7000 series shows up in drivers

Quite a few HD 7000 names and codenames

AMD's Radeon HD 7000 series has already popped up in AMD's previous driver releases and it was pretty much clear that the next generation will indeed carry a Radeon HD 7000 series name. Now some other cards appeared in the new Catalyst 8.91 driver and the list includes a bunch of cards ranging from Radeon HD 7300 to Radeon HD 7600 series.

The driver will probably be available in the Catalyst 11.11 Preview pack and for now it includes a bunch of Radeon HD 7000 series cards as well as some codenames including Cape Verde in Pro, XT and XTX varaints, Pitcarin in Pro and XT version and of course, now quite well known Tahiti and New Zealand codenames. The previously noted lineup starts with Radeon HD 7300 series and Radeon HD 7400 series that will also be available as a Radeon HD 7400A, most probably indicating that this one will show up in the APU segment as well. The rest of the rumoured desktop lineup includes Radeon HD 7500 and Radeon HD 7600 series.

It is important to note, at least if we guessed those suffix letters right, that there is also Radeon HD 7600A, so this one might show up in APU segment as well. (One of AMD partners, as well as a neat comment from one of our readers, informed us that the "A" suffix in the model name actually stands for "All-in-One" segment). The mobile lineup includes HD 7500M and 7600M series as well as some already known codenames like Heathrow, Chelsea and Wimbledon all available in Pro and XT versions. Also there are quite a few new names including a lineup for Trinity platform with Devestator desktop/mobile and lite desktop/lite mobile as well as Trinity Scrapper desktop and mobile series codenames.

Last but not least are the two new codenames that refer to monuments in China, Great Wall and Summer Palace. Of course, we'll have to wait to see what will AMD launch first, but it is rumoured that we might see first 28nm parts as early as December.

You can check out the full lineup over at VR-Zone.
