AMD Radeon HD 7900 press event on 22nd of December

Written by Slobodan Simic

Partners still bound to 9th of January launch


According to our sources, the 22nd of December is the date for the Radeon HD 7900 series press event. This means that reviews will go up on 22nd of December and AMD will probably brag about being having the first 28nm desktop cards in 2011, while there will be no cards or partner annoucements until 9th of January 2012.

Some select members of the press have already gotten their hands on cards yesterday and some will get them today. All performance figures and estimates that came before yesterday are pretty much off the table since AMD did a good job in keeping the 12.1 RC driver offline until a day before yesterday. Some estimates that Tahiti is about 15 percent faster than Cayman are way off and simply unreal judging by the specs of the Tahiti GPU. Of course, there are some AMD slides that show performance of the new Tahiti, but history has taught us to rather stick to our sources about those or wait for some real benchmarks rather than to look at AMD official slides. 

Currently, most of our sources are sticking to the same story, AMD partners are still bound to the 9th of January launch date and, although some might start to list the HD 7900 series cards, it is quite possible that they won't be available until that date. Of course, AMD can give a green light earlier but currently partners have the 9th of January 2012 as the launch date.
