January 9 Launch Date for AMD Radeon HD 7900

Ladies and Gentlemen with graphics card upgrade plans, circle the date January 09, 2012, for this is going to be the day AMD will launch its next generation high-performance graphics cards in the Radeon HD 7900 series, according to reliable market sources DonanimHaber spoke with. On the 9th, AMD is expected to unveil at least two new SKUs in the HD 7900 series, most likely, HD 7970 and HD 7950. These will be based on the new 28 nm "Tahiti" silicon that will use completely redesigned number-crunching machinery, and a very wide memory bus.

My "money" is on $399 for HD 7950, $499 for HD 7970. That said, I have money for neither. :p

Let's Google translate the note line with "2012" in it, heh.

Original

"telekonferans sırasında yapılıcak acıklamalar 9 ocak 2012'ye kadar NDA altındadır"

Translated

"until 9 January 2012, during a teleconference yapılıcak description under NDA"

So what do we comprehend? It says what will be unveiled is under NDA until January. Meaning we don't know what exactly they'll unveil.

Yet an another rumor from that site. So... :D

That's not how I get it. The author of those articles personally translates (≠ Google Translate) the key points of his article to simple English and sends it to me by email. In today's mail, all that's relevant to today's news post is there.

You suffer a case of "I don't always rubbish news as rumor, but when I do, it's always from sources who don't publish in English master-language." :p

All the author of DomainHamber :D does is to make up crap. That site is a joke. Why would they, from Silicon Valley, CA, send their most important info to some junk site from a 3rd World country? They never get any info. They just stir it up.

You are unqualified for a discussion on the credibility of DonanimHaber, let alone credibility of sources from outside "Silicon Valley". You don't know poo about how the industry and world markets are structured. So I won't waste time with you.

Oh great, insulting down are we? You aren't going to make yourself right by saying "I won't waste time with you". DonanimHaber is a nonsense site. Period. That's it. Take it or leave it.

Yes, at least insofar as where you were going with DonanimHaber is concered, you are one of those who proclaim: "My ignorance is as worthy as your intellect". Therefore, you don't deserve a discussion on DonanimHaber's credibility. Rather it's the otherway round, DonanimHaber doesn't need your stamp of approval.

That's bull. Donanimhaber is more often than not well within the mark when it comes to releasing tech info early. I always wondered how they managed it.

Well we don't even kmnow if the engineers are "allowed to work hard" on what becomes bulldozer.
On the GPU side of things, I don't see any reason they wouldn't do well given how much they have came back in the past few years.

They don't. They make it up.

You first insulted me by saying I don't know shit. And know you're calling me dufus and ignorant? Way to go buddy. Way to go. I'm pretty damn sure you know that site has no inside sources. They're making it all up on their own. They always did. But you aren't going to come up and admit you're wrong. You aren't in a position to do that, are you?

The beauty of this discussion is that on the date specified if any info comes out regarding the NDA and/or the release of the new cards, 79xx series, we will see who is right and who is wrong.

If there is a release of info then (an NDA lifting with reference to 79xx cards) then you get to to be wrong. If there is no such info, you get to be right about Donanimhaber.

Life is easy when you can wait. :)

I said it before, I'll say it again, and the more you prolong this talk, the more you reinforce my observations.

You don't know poo about how the industry and markets is structured. If I didn't sound intuitive enough the first time around, I meant you don't know poo about how the IT industry and world IT markets are structured, it wasn't a generalized "you don't know poo about anything" remark, hence I wouldn't call that an insult. You're still stuck in the 1960s~80s when everything was designed and made in the Silicon Valley, and most of it was sold in the US.

Today, manufacturing is done across continents, the industry is everywhere and markets around the world have access to early information, equally credible, and around the same time. In other words, a Turkish website citing its sources is no less credible than California-based website doing the same thing.

Back to topic.

I am going to take a look, probably give it my stamp of approval (judging by AMD's pricing track record), recommend it to everyone who is going to buy a new system, and not bothered about it myself as usual :)

I wonder whether they are aiming for "performance" or "power consumption" improvement, but my money is on neither, since that this is "new arch"

Well, this coincides with my own estimated ETA for these cards. If true, good job, AMD!!

I had hoped for a release this month, but didn't expect card until January, with the dual GPU card in March/April.

That makes it jsut over a year since the launch of the 69xx-series GPUs. New designs every year is almost too fast!

Wow so early, so great! Will this be 99% sure a PCI-E 3.0 GPU or not?

I'm debating between getting the 7950 and waiting for the 7850/70 and crossfire them. If XDR2 actually comes out for the 7900, I'll probably try the 7900 series out of curiosity :p

Very nice!, i know i won't have the cash to get one but then again i already have a 6970 which is more then sufficient for today's games.

I still believe AMD/ATI might have a saviour for their Bulldozer here, if it can offload programs to the GPU and contingious memory space and execute them at that speed on Windows 8 by writing the drivers and software needed.......damn.



however this is still AMD/ATI we are talking about, so expect meh.

I'll have to wait for some tests this time if the new architecture is really any good for games. Data crunching is fine as it is as far as i'm concerned.
