Southern Islands codenames leaked in Catalyst 10.8

Written by


Nice places to go fishing
ATI’s latest Catalyst iteration has spilled the beans on a bunch of new Southern Islands codenames and there are a few interesting developments.

A total of 35 new cards were listed in the atiicdxx.da_ file, but sadly we’re still no closer to some actual specs. We already reported the codenames several weeks back, but now we know quite a bit more about the new lineup.

It appears that there are 11 Cayman cards to look forward to and these babies will probably be the most interesting of the lot. Cayman should replace the highly successful HD 5800 series and with a total of 4 different chips and 11 SKUs it appears that ATI has high hopes for it. However, don’t expect a bunch of Cayman-base consumer products, as it appears that 9 of them are reserved for the professional market. Two Antilles dual-GPU cards were also listed and they should be considered part of the Cayman family.

Blackomb and Barts should appear in four iterations each. Barts should replace the Juniper core and it will also be available a professional card, but we’re not sure where Blackomb fits in. Also, two Blackomb parts feature the “Gemini” moniker and frankly we don’t know what to make of it. It seems unlikely that these are dual-GPU cards, although it would be the most obvious conclusion.

Barts is followed by four Whistler cards and three cards based on the Turks core which should replace Redwoon HD 5600 cards. One of the Turk-based cards is codenamed Onega. Seymour (Skinner) also comes in four iterations, two of which are “Gemini” cards. Last in line, three Caicos based cards, one of which is codenamed Caspian. These babies should replace the Cedar HD 5400 core.

It’s quite clear that AMD has its work cut out and Nvidia has quite a few reasons to be worried. AMD seems bent on penetrating the professional market with several Cayman products. As you probably know, the professional market has been Nvidia’s cash cow for years and it’s one of its biggest money makers. However, it’s worth noting that the leak has left quite a few unanswered questions and we will try to find out a bit more soon.

Nothern islands is comming before Souther islands that's what the rumors are saying, These codenames seem to confirm that. Every codename has NI in it what stands for Nothern Islands.

Nope...

It seems to be replacing 'LE'

Then again in might also mean 'low power', but I don't think so.

WTF!? Reads a little bit like the bible: "And Seymour, also know as Skinner, fathered Blackomb and Barts in the land of Cayman and went fourth to Gemini in Caicos by shore Onega to the house of Antilles where they slaughtered the goats YAY and then placed the bits in little pots."

I take it the goats are nVidia.

No you won't. I'm already camping for two of them as we speak 8)

Looking forward to writing the Quad-CrossFireX review and Radeon HD 5970 comparison.
