Not all partners to go with Tahiti LE GPU

Written by Slobodan Simic

Some might skip it


According to info over at Techpowerup.com, some AMD AIB partners will decide to skip the Tahiti LE GPU scheduled to appear on November 27th.

As rumored earlier, Tahiti LE will not get the, so called, AMD reference design card, thus leaving AMD partners to design their own graphics cards and reuse the existing PCBs from the HD 7900 or 7800 series. Club3D already showed its HD 7870 joker card that is scheduled to appear on November 27th and has pretty much the same specs expected to be seen on graphics cards with the Tahiti LE GPU.

In case you missed it, the Tahiti LE will feature 1536 stream processors and work at 925MHz base and 975MHz Boost GPU clocks while 2GB of GDDR5 memory will be set to work at an impressive 6000MHz, at least on the Club3D limited edition graphics card. Despite earlier rumors that Tahiti LE will be a part of HD 7800 series, rather than the HD 7900 series and that partners might name the card as the HD 7890, Club3D decided to make it a part of its limited edition HD 7870 series graphics card and simply call it the HD 7870 jokerCard.

Since most, if not all, AMD based Club3D cards comes from TuL, the same company behind Powercolor and VTX3D, it is quite possible that these will do a similar graphics card.

According to the details over at Techpowerup.com some major partners will rather decide to skip this GPU. Some of our sources, including one of the major AIB partners, confirmed that there are no plans for such graphics card, at least not in the near future.
