Mobile HD7000 parts tip up in HP, Asus notebooks

Written by



First taste of AMD’s next gen


AMD’s first HD 7000 series mobile chips have popped up in a couple of listings and we reckon we are just weeks away from launch.

German hacks spotted the HD 7670M in a mid-range 15-icher from Asus. The Asus X53TK is based on AMD’s A6-3420M APU with integrated HD 6520G graphics, but it also boasts HD 7670M discrete graphics. This is a Thames XT chip, with 128-bit DDR3 memory and the clocks should be 600/900MHz for the GPU and memory.

HP is offering another Thames XT part in its Envy 17-incher. However, it is the 7690M, with GDDR 5 memory clocked at 800MHz.

We still don’t know the exact launch date, but we guess you will be able to pick up a notebook with 28nm graphics by Christmas, at least in major markets.

GO AMD, finally release this ground breaking GPU design that was built from the ground up. Something much needed and right in time to compete with NV's Kepler when that gets released in late March/April.

This was built from ground up? I thought it was the Cayman GPUs that were built from ground up (VLIW4 architecture), and it was the preview for the next gen AMD GPUs.

same here, new 7000 series are Caymans on 28nm. process nothing new there, but it does not matter, what matters is performance and price, hope AMD don't disappoint(AGAI N) :)

Wrong. The 7000 series will bring a lot to the table. It's not just a die shrink. You can check it out here:

7000 series looks very promising.
