Radeon HD 7950 comes on January 31st

Written by Slobodan Simic

Partners ready for it


We managed to overhear that AMD's Radeon HD 7950 will officially launch on January 31st. The card should be available as of that week, while the rest of the lineup should follow in February.

In case you somehow missed it, the Radeon HD 7950 features 1792 stream processors, or 28 GCN compute units, and a 384-bit memory interface paired up with 3GB of GDDR5 memory. The reason behind the January 31st launch date might have something to do with the Nvidia's plan to launch its 28nm Kepler based GK104 GPU sometime around that date and AMD simply wants something to coincide with Nvidia's launch, or ruin its day.

The rest of the AMD lineup, except the dual-GPU New Zealand card, should follow in February, but we are yet to confirm any precise dates. The price tag of the HD 7950 still stands at US $449 which we wrote about a while back.

Not to me, all the stores are out of stock. And they continuously raised the price 3-4 times in a day, and now they are all 500euro +

That's way too [censored]ing much.

to be honest that is more the demand for a good product, an under-estimation of demand and e-tailers adding some profit to the mark-up, once supply meats demand you should see prices go back to normal.

provided the euro doesn't slip to much between now and then $449 dollar works out to about 420 euro including 19% tax.

we are almost back at the point where the exchange rate and the tax are equal again... giving new fuel to that age old fallacy of 1 dollar = 1 euro.
that applies only to 3 things. consoles, steam games on steam, and some apple products.

actually the 550 dollars works out to about 515 euro including taxes(19%). so 500 is slightly below the advised AMD price.

AMD didn't raise the price dummy, the greedier retailers did, AMD set cards price at 475$ £310. AMD don't change the price daily dummy, the retailers are taking advantage of customers.. Nothing new in the UK unfortunately...

If it costs 350 euros, comes with decent blower type HSF, does not have crippled VRM and can OC to 1.2Ghz with tolerable fan noise, I will think about it.

Still, I'd match prefer to have Nvidia's offering in the market as well, before making any upgrade move.

2 7770 would kill this card in performance upto 1080p and cost a lot less.And if you can't wait for those, 2 6870 would kill this card in performance and still cost only $312. I have never crossfire before but i might crossfire my 6950, when i can get another one cheaper and am sure that would kill this card in performance too. Decisions, decisions.

The bias towards Nvidia of the authors on this site is ridiculous..."AMD simply wants something to coincide with Nvidia's launch, or ruin its day."

Well considering we have nothing but vague murmurings of Nvidia release dates I fail to see how a specific date for an AMD release can be classed as an attempt steal their thunder!!

Nvidia has no release dates no cards and certainly no thunder to steal.....more just like a hand clap....a slow one at that.

Would also be very nice if the 7950 was flashable to a 7970 like the 6950 was to a 6970 :-)
