28nm Radeons this year

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Globalfoundries might be included

 

Last CES we had a chance to talk to some people in know, and we’ve learned that 28nm graphics chips for AMD should be coming this year. What caught our eye was that AMD intern CEO Thomas Seifert revealed that AMD already has working samples of 28nm chips. This comes as little surprise as the retail cards are expected at some point in Q4 2011.

So, Southern Islands should be coming this year in 28nm. Back at CES our sources were quite sure that TSMC is the only graphics provider for 28nm chips and that Globalfoundries was left behind simply as it was too expensive to develop a GPU for two fabs.

Simply browsing over to Globalfoundries website we have found the story that you can read here, and the story talks about 28nm graphics chips, conviniently posted at Globalfoundies website. This gives us an idea that Globalfoundries might be involved in 28nm graphics after all. 

Globalfoundries might get some action on 28nm Brazos successors, such as Deccan and Krishna, Wichita and Hondo APU’s, but this was also never confirmed. Brazos was currently being produced only at TSMC.

Globalfoundries annual forum is happening on August 30th so we might get some chance to find out more about its involvement in 28nm bulk GPUs and APUs manufacturing.

Bro_fist, are you that sad that you created multiple accounts just so you can rate your own comments up? It doesn't matter because the mass of people common sense on this website always outnumber people like yourself.


Oh look, he's using the accounts to rate this comment down, this is a prime example of someone who needs to go out and get a job because if fail trolling websites is more important than making a living then it must show how depressing and social that persons life really is.

..


you mean just like me with mr.sucker?
oh well..competition is good isnt? :D

sad part,that if amd dungs release 28nm this year it will be another cleaning pipe release,dont expect normal cards to be released this year,only next year at Q1 end.
Why?Because:
Christmas & NY - ok
After NY - bad,ppl have no money and still drunk
March - ok
Back to school time - ok
So only 3 main time lines for releasing something like this.So nope,no proper cards this year.
And i can troll around for much longer :D
Just like my girflriend mr.sucker

Usually when you troll, you have to make sense so that the victim feels offended, I couldn't decipher any of that.

not very bright are you? when was the last time nvidia or ati/amd released a product in large quantities? oh wait, they both always do a paper launch, with a small ammount of cards on release. Also q4 of this year is before NY, just thought you needed to know that, also consider that nvidia has confirmed their new card is out next year.

Dan-amdFagboy is actually right from release times as others have pointed out to me. What he posted definitely makes sense. I'll be doing my best to wait until Ivy Bridge to do a big upgrade.

Isn't TSMC a little hard pressed with manufacturing Apple's chips also at this time? Makes sense if GloFo is involved.

Nvidia won't release until Q1 next year, so by your logic the"normal" nvidia cards won't arrive until Q2 next year.
