AMD delays next gen graphics cards

Written by Nick Farrell



Uneventful year ahead of us

While some people are packing in smoking, AMD thinks it is a good idea to pack in releasing new graphics cards, at least for a year or so.

AMD marketing manager Robert Hallock told Megagames that the company has no intentions to release Radeon HD 8000 series cards for the foreseeable future.

"The HD 7000 Series will remain our primary focus for quite some time," he said.

When pressed he said that AMD and its partners are happy with the HD 7000 Series, and it will continue to be its emphasis in the channel for the foreseeable future. There had been some rumours that an HD 8000 Series was being developed. However AMD has never confirmed it and so far there has been no proof that any were ready to show up.

Hallock’s comments lend credibility to rumours that the HD 8000 family won’t be out before Q4 2013.
