According to a post over at Nordichardware, it appears that AMD has decided to launch its first HD 7000 series parts on December 5th in London. The details are still not clear but considering the location of the launch it all points to AMD's next-gen 28nm mobile parts.
We already wrote before that AMD might announce some products based on the 28nm manufacturing process in December. Back then we already pointed out that desktop parts are scheduled to launch in January, and that AMD this December announcement might be about 28nm mobile parts in December. Of course, AMD might also talk more about the upcoming desktop lineup and reveal some details regarding the GCN architecture as well.
As you already know, the 28nm mobile parts are all named after places in the United Kingdom, so London is a good place to announce the launch of these chips. According to earlier reports, AMD plans to announce its Thames, Chelsea and Heathrow chips in Q4 2011 while the high-end Wimbeldon chip will wait for Q2 2012. Speaking of Wimbledon, 15 - love AMD.
