  1. AMD teased the first working 28nm notebook GPU to the public today at a media event in San Francisco, California. The chip in question, which is expected to launch as…

  2. Interesting ... it seems as if the upcoming 7800's will equal or slightly surpass the existing 6950 & 6970 cards and the 7500, 7600 will be close to the 6770 & 6790.

    I also hope AMD releases a 7700 series to equal (surpass) the 6860 & 6870 which were excellent price/performance values

    Glad to see that they use XDR2 for their high-end boards. That memory bandwidth is insane.

    The supposed possibility of XDR2 on the HD 7000 series has already been debunked. The charts are pure supposition based on "what might/could be" because of XDR2's use in consoles which will likely be AMD powered in their next iteration.
    In this case someone decided that 2+2 = 5

    FWIW, Most enthusiast/performance GPU's aren't bandwidth starved. A simple test is to see how much net performance is gained by X% overclock of memory as opposed to the same percentage overclock of core.
