HP Starts Listing Notebooks with Radeon HD 7600M Graphics

PC major HP made a slight slip, disclosing AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 7000M series GPUs as options available for some of its notebooks. These are the first public disclosures of a 28 nm GPU. The new options that had been made available were Radeon HD 7670M, and Radeon HD 7690M, both based on the "Thames-XT" GPU. The Thames-XT GPU is built on the 28 nm process, and features current-generation VLIW4 stream processors, a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, and is DirectX 11 compliant. AMD unveiled this GPU at a press event in London on the 5th.

From what I've dug up the 7690M is a 6870M just the die shrink means less power and possibly a clock increase. Same VLIW5 architecture we all know so well *sigh* . Feel free to correct me though.

die shrink is good news - well at least much better than just a 40nm rebrand from 6xxx to 7xxx series wich could also be the case! and in lappies there is big need to save those few wats of battery life, heat and noise!
