The 28nm Tahiti-LE

According to a rumor over at, AMD is apparently working on yet another Tahiti GPU, the Tahiti-LE.

The new GPU could help AMD fill a hole between the HD 7950 and HD 7870, thus putting much more pressure on Nvidia's GTX 660 Ti graphics card. According to the post over at, AMD apparently is looking to place the new GPU in the HD 7800 series rather than the HD 7900 series which is already crowded with five models.

Although there are still no precise details regarding the new GPU, AMD has enough room cut the Tahiti GPU down, most probably down to 1535 stream processors and even play with the memory interface. The new SKU, based on the Tahiti-LE GPU will most likely be ready by the Christmas shopping season.
