    They will be announced on the 25th in Hawaii. Released sometime in October most likely but nothing confirmed yet.

    The only thing that's important is the pixel rate. :p

    This is what articles are referencing

    gpuboss - Radeon HD 9970 vs GeForce GTX 780

    55% improvement

    (Looks for grains of salt)

    All hail the return of the 512 bus!?!?! :rockout:

    These supposed specs look eerily similar to a spec sheet i recall seeing leaked way back when, shortly before the release of the HD7 series. Can't remeber where the leaked image was from but i recall viewing it in a thread here :eek:

    Reviews will not be patiently waited gfor :laugh:

    From looking at these possible specs, would something like this be bottlnecked by PCIe 3.0 x8?

    Pixel fill rate, and floating point ops not clock speed are important.

    Since they are both effected by clock speed, its already built in.

    AMD will finally achieve the peak potential of the chip after 2 yrs of driver updates!

    Lance Armstrong is more believable than those sources.

    Jumping from Cat 13.6 to 13.8, Curacao 8000 series, now Volcanic Islands 9000 series? WTF, what happened to the 8000s? I thought THOSE were the jump to new architecture when they said they were skipping the rebranding?

    I swear, when it comes to AMD lately, you miss a few days worth of GPU news and suddenly you're out of the loop.

    Jesus, 9970 is going to be an expensive card if those specs are true, and probably hot and power hungry. Should give Nvidia some competition though, and drop their prices.

    You must live under a rock. the 8000 series is a rebrand of the 7000 series, ONLY FOR OEMs. (Dell, HP, etc.)

    Also they skipped drivers, because the xx.6 or 8 refer to the month of the year. They didn't release a new driver in July to make up the 13.7.

    The HD 8000 series were Re-badges of the 7000 series and are only available OEM

    if those specs are anywhere near right it would have to be 20nm for sure but if true take my goddam money already but not too much of it:)

    Those specs just seem unreal, to good to be true. Props to amd if they do it.

    ....Does anybody actually believe that these specifications are possible?


    AMD waited out the 7xx series from Nvidea, so they've presumably had time to work on the 9xxx series. My problem is that AMD firing shots at Titan doesn't say anything about the ~$200 I want to spend on a graphics card, or the time before the market actually has a sufficient quantity of them.

    Waiting for benchmarks and real numbers. That's the only logical response I can muster.

    I hope the cards are competitive and/if they are, I hope AMD undercuts Nvidia's ridiculous 7xx series prices.

    I really hope they don't follow Nvidia's lead with the new pricing structure, but I have a feeling they most likely will. :ohwell:

    You are correct. These are the same specs "comfirmed" by some for the Tahiti XT replacement.

    TechRAID Episode 2 Transcript


    TechPowerUp uses BSN and S/A sources all the time but usually its by 3rd party links and couple days after the news has been reported. Lets not forget the Techsites that used 2yr old S/A diagram and reported as fact, then S/A took them to task and made them all look like lazy copy and paste bloggers.
    gpuboss well I don't know much about them.

    These cards will still be on 28nm. I think the 780 is reachable as performance goes, will have to see with what power consumption and heat. I think price will be slightly lower but still on the ridiculous side (550-600) and... BF4 in re-re-reloaded never settle bundle.

    I like the GPU architecture releases. The CPU front's been a bit 'meh' recently. New CPU's have more cores and are a bit more power efficient, they dont come out with big cannons anymore.

    The GPU's though? It's popcorn time. I would love for AMD to release such a monster chip. And if they could they would easily undercut Titan. Titan's price point is fixated to make it an entry level compute card.

    That being said, I'll believe it when I see it. Seems too much of an increase over the 7970 to be believable. And before anybody waves the x% 'more this, more that' flag the specs are rumours for now.

    I eagerly await the Hawaii tech showcase. :cool:
