Radeon HD 7000 to ship in January

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Journalists get a taste in December


Our friends from Nordichardware are reporting that that Radeon HD 7000 series, based on 28nm Southern Island chips briefing is happening on December 5th in London.

This will be the event where journalists from the Nordic countries and UK learn about AMD new 28nm cards. On December 8th, the same event happens in Munich for DACH journalists and most likely there won’t be any details about card performance as the cards are only shipping in January.

Benchmarketing is happening before that time but we don’t know yet when AMD plans to lift the NDA on these cards information. We will do our best to find out. A few AMD partners have told us that they don’t expect to start selling these cards before January time and that they still have healthy sock of Radeon 6000 cards with a slight shortage of high-end cards. People were buying a lot of cards due to many hot titles launched this autumn.
 
Naturally 28nm chips are faster than both NV Fermi based cars and the Radeon 6000 soon to become legacy line, but we have no idea how Radeon HD 7000 series will stack up against the GK 100 generation, Geforce Kepler that is.

I am curious to see how much of a performance boost we will see between the HD 6000 vs. HD 7000. The HD 7000 series should be a complete brand new build from the ground up that should offer substantial performance over anything released to date.

Anyhow I predict at the very least 25% to 45% performance improvement with the upcoming HD 7000 high end cards.

The GPUs (not the cards) are reportedly capable of ~40% better performance when compared against the 6000 lineup but there's been no mention of whether that will be tamped down due to power/heat issues. Regardless, this will be the 3rd gen since my 4850 and I'll be jumping on this come Spring benchies of 7850-7790.

Great point. It also depends on the price. I may just get another HD 6000 card for Crossfire or sell my current HD 6000 card and get a HD 7000 card, again depends on price and performance.

And we will have to wait until 2013 when the high end Kepler comes to find out....oh and of course by that time the comparison will between kepler and the HD 8000 series.

LOL, the HD 7000 not out yet, how on earth would you know? Anyhow 2x HD 6970 in CrossfireX already blows your setup out of the water :lol:

I hope january is true. because I keep on seeing april in tech sights hope not.
April for high end and january for mid to entry. Same time as nvidia's gtx 560 replacement and dual gpu solution to follow.

Kinda disappointed..why does only the high-end get the new architecture? I'm a mid-range guy..thought 7670 or 7780 would be GCN based too...oh well hope they perform well...7670 or 7770 either one of them for me.
