AMD Radeon HD 8000M codenamed "Solar System"

Written by Slobodan Simic

To be announced at CES 2013


The recent leak of AMD's unnanounced Radeon HD 8550M in an upcoming Asus Vivobook Ultrabook has revealed the name of at least one model from the upcoming Radeon HD 8000M lineup and it appears that we are not looking at a rebranded HD 7000 series GPU but rather a part of a whole new lineup with a Solar System codename.

According to a post over at Expreview.com, the upcoming mobile GPUs will use Solar System codenames like Mars and Venus and will not actually be a rebrand of the HD 7000 lineup. The Radeon HD 8550M that showed up in the AMD A8-4555M equipped Vivobook is just the tip of the iceberg, as  AMD plans to showcase and probably officially announce the new chips at CES 2013, scheduled to take place in Las Vegas on January 8th.

Unfortunately, there are no precise details regarding the upcoming Radeon HD 8000M series but we are sure we will hear more as we draw closer to CES 2013.
