HD 7790 coming next month

A while back we wrote about AMD's plans to fill the gap between its HD 7770 and HD 7850 with a new graphics card that should end up with the HD 7790 brand. The new graphics card will be based on a new 28nm Bonaire GPU rather than on Cape Verde or Pitcairn.

According to various leaked details including the post over at, the Bonaire GPU should feature 896 stream processors. Unfortunately, there are still no details regarding the precise clock frequencies, but according to AMD, the chips should be 10 percent slower than the HD 7850, which is in line with what we heard before. Partners might not be allowed to do factory overclocked version in order not to cannibalize HD 7850 sales.

The rumored price is set at around £118 (€135/US $175) which should put it directly against the GTX 650 Ti. The new graphics card is currently scheduled for launch in April.
