Southern Islands reportedly coming in November

Written by


First announcements expected in October
According to Digitimes, AMD will announce the first products in its upcoming Southern Islands GPU series sometime in October. Shipments and retail availability are expected in November.

In addition, the red team will reportedly cut prices on select HD 5000 series cards to make way for new products. So far AMD has been less than keen to cut HD 5000 prices, as it’s still not facing much opposition from Nvidia.

This is in line with previous reports and roadmap leaks which indicated that AMD would indeed launch several new GPU’s before year’s end. However, it appears that this time around AMD will introduce entry level and mainstream parts first, while high end products should appear in early 2011. It's still a bit too early to know the details, so take this with a grain of salt.

Although the news comes as no surprise, it is nice to see AMD sticking to its schedules. Nvidia is also expected to introduce new GF106 and GF108 products over the next few weeks, but they will obviously face stiff opposition from upcoming AMD parts just a couple of months (or weeks) after they hit retail.

And from AMD's current parts as soon as they're released…

I call bs, crossfire is broken on ATI cards for several months now. 2 460 in sli can beat 2 5870 in crossfire.

The 460 can compete with the 5830 and 5850, but NV still has nothing to take on the rest of the 5000 series...

As for crossfire/SLI... I doubt mainstream users really give a shit. The majority of consumers stick to just one card and they don't even go for high-end cards, let alone CF/SLI setups...

Hopefully NV's GF106 will offer better value for money than ATI's 5770/5750, as ATI's low-end and mainstream cards are a bit overpriced at the moment.

Catalyst 10.7 seems to be a bit screwed up when it comes to Crossfire, but not 10.6:

As you can see, 2 HD 5870s in Crossfire are well ahead of a pair of GTX 460s.

Nvidia new releases QUOTE: " Nvidia is also expected to introduce new GF106 and GF108 products over the next few weeks"

NVIDIA = end of August or early September.

ati QUOTE : " AMD will announce the first products in its upcoming Southern Islands GPU series sometime in October. Shipments and retail availability are expected in November."

ATI= November

September and October = TWO FULL MONTHS

Two Full Months = "a few weeks" for red roosters ! ROFL

Good call. Just watch out for the deluded and in denial, they know who they are.
How about this PR stunt for the LIARS CLUB of ati..
" In addition, the red team will reportedly cut prices on select HD 5000 series cards to make way for new products."
ROFLMAO - sure it's ati's own product release that will destroy their pricing structure ! HAHAHAHAHAH
And to think the little red fannies love to squeal Nvidia wrecked it's 480 and 470 with GTX460 ! hahaha

Two months = 8 weeks = "a few weeks" in my book.

Let's not forget that AMD has already sold more than a dozen million mainstream and entry level DX11 and around 5 million 5800 series cards.

As of today, Nvidia has sold naught. It will enter that market in a few weeks. If you think they can catch up in two months you should try writing some sci-fi...

"a few weeks" in NVIDIA speak translates to 52 to 104 real weeks. Just remember the GTX480 - was about 32 weeks late.

You're living in a neutered science fiction fantasy world already. Nvidia's sales surpass ati AND AMD cpu's COMBINED.
In other words, Nvidia sold more non DX11 parts in sales dollars than the ENTIRETY of ati and AMD - COMBINED.

Your fantasy world is one where only dx11 means anything to (YOU), while less than 1% of ATI's dx11 cards can perform DX11 properly on the games made for it.(see 5970 ONLY and even that struggles)
Fiction is the STANDARD you apply when trying to SPIN UP for ati.
