AMD promotes Cayman as the new R300

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Very confident about Cayman


We have received some new information about Cayman, claiming that the new GPU will end up big and hot, which is not surprising as it is the biggest GPU that AMD has ever made. We don't have any exact numbers yet, but the general feeling about this quite secretive project is that it might be the new R300.

If you are old enough you will remember the famous Half life 2 vouchers and ATI’s first leader series, which included the now legendary Radeon 9700. This chip dominated against Nvidia's Geforce FX 5800, the infamous NV30, so Cayman has a lot to live up to. This was some eight years ago, in summer of 2002, way before Tweeter, Facetube and Youbook launched.

AMD is either hoping that Nvidia doesn't have a chance with its GF110 aka GTX 580 or that Nvidia could fail again. However, we believe that making the same mistake twice would be something that would really upset Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang.

ATI partners are confident and it looks like they should get enough cards. If all goes well Cayman Radeon HD 6970 should launch in last week of November, of course if it doesn't get pushed back further.
