According to VR-Zone, AMD will officially launch its next generaton flagship mobile GPU on 24th of April, the HD 7970M.

Despite the HD 7970M name, the codenamed Thames mobile GPU (as it was mostly the case with mobile GPUs) shares no similarities with its desktop counterpart as it is based on 28nm Pitcairn GPU that powers AMD Radeon HD 7800 desktop GPUs. The HD 7970M still packs quite a punch and it will quite interesting to see how well it will fare against Nvidia's 40nm Fermi GTX 675M/670M flagship GPUs as well as GTX 660M, the most powerful 28nm Kepler based GPU from Nvidia.

We already wrote a lot about Nvidia's mobile GPU lineup, and back then, Nvidia claimed quite a few design wins, but we are sure that AMD will pretty much do the same on April 24th. There was some recent leaks regarding Alienware's upcoming M18X gaming notebook that will be available with both HD 7970M and GTX 675M/660M options.

In addition to the HD 7970M, AMD will probably follow up with HD 7800M series, codename Lombok that will be similar to Cape Verde GPUs, while the low end will be covered by AMD's upcoming Trinity APUs.
