AMD to launch three Radeon HD 7000 chips by March

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Could result in 9 new cards


We got hold of some fuzzy release dates for the Radeon HD 7000 generation that in total has three different chips.

The first one to be officially announced, Tahiti XT, ended up with the Radeon HD7970 designation and we won’t go over the specs since it has the talk of town. This flagship model should start shipping on January 9th along with the Radeon HD 7950, Tahiti Pro card. We can confirm that Tahiti Pro has a 900MHz GPU clock, 1792 shaders, 112 texture units, 32 ROPs as well as 1250 GDDR MHz memory, 5GHz effective. It comes with 3GB memory and $449 suggested retail price.
 
It already looks like a very interesting card, but an even more tempting version is on the way. A Tahiti Pro variant with 1.5GHz memory will show by March, under the same Radeon HD 7950 brand.

Pitcairn is yet another codename that will cover the Radeon HD 78x0 series and HD 7870 and 7850 should launch in February. This is a 245 square millimeter chip and cards based on it will cost between $299 for the HD 7870 and $219 for the HD 7850 with 1GB of memory.

Cape Verde is Radeon HD 7770, a 164 square millimeter chip with 896 stream processors, 56 texture units and 16 ROPs. It should start selling in February for $149, while the HD 7750 should end up even cheaper but penalized with slightly lower clocks.
 
All these cards are expected by March and some LE editions of Tahiti and Pitcairn should show up in Q2 2012. It looks like AMD will have a very strong portfolio in 2012. What’s more, the most interesting cards, such as Pitcairn, should appear in about two months, well ahead of the competition.

The 7750 at $150 seems like a great mid-range card.
