Outmanouvering Nvidia's GTX 670


Nvidia's GTX 670 is clearly a thorn in AMD's eye and if the rumours from various sites are correct, AMD might have a remedy. Apparently, AMD is working on a new SKU that will be known as the Radeon HD 7950 GHz Edition.

Similar to the HD 7970 GHz Edition, the new HD 7950 GHz Edition will feature higher clock speeds and most likely AMD's new Boost PowerTune. Spec-wise, the HD 7950 GHz Edition will still feature 1792 stream processors, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs paired up with 3GB of GDDR5 memory on a 384-bit wide memory interface.

AMD did the exactly same thing with its HD 7970 GHz Edition and it is expected that the HD 7950 GHz Edition will feature higher voltage with GPU clocks in excess of 1GHz, as the name implies. The new SKU is expected to go directly against the GTX 670 so it will be priced at somewhere between US $350-$400.

On the other hand, such SKU could get close to the standard HD 7970, so it is possible that AMD will phase them out before HD 7950 GHz comes up to market. According to reports, HD 7950 GHz Edition is expected to launch later this quarter and it appears that AMD's AIBs will have a green light to go with custom, non-reference designs from day one.
