    AMD showed off its first graphics processor (GPU) built on TSMC's cutting-edge 28 nanometer silicon fabrication process, the next foundry process standard for discrete GPUs. Bulk manufacturing at TSMC's Fab 15 facility at 28 nm is still taking shape, TSMC will take volume orders only later this year. For the moment, it can run small batches for designers to test their designs. The GPU was running on a mobile platform (pictured below, the red PCB), cooled by a compact copper-channel air cooler, leading us to believe that this is a mainstream segment GPU, if not lower. The demo platform was showcased running DirectX 11 title Dirt 3. Besides that, absolutely no other details were shared, not even a company codename for the GPU board.

    Can't we just ban AMD news from TPU until they release Bulldozer?

    lol @ all the unpatient people, its a piece of hardware, so chill out.

    numbers will come the day its released, no complaining will change that, cant deal with that? go buy intel and let us hardware enthousiasts enjoy the news.

    Good to see it's coming along, but I am getting tired of AMD doing attention grabs for media coverage, to distract from a lack of BD launch date. :nutkick:

    IF you want to discuss what is news and what isnt , this is the wrong part of the forum, if you claim the TPU crew doesnt know what news is and posts unimportant articles, then please remove TPU from your bookmarks and visit one of the thousands of other hardware related sites, we are happy with TPU and their choices.
    buggalugs says thanks.

    Looking at the monitor behind him it looks nice, and considering the size of the GPU given the size of the memory chips on the card, and the space needed for traces, the size of the cooler, that looks nice.

    Pinky nail size GPU that can run modern games.


    My only other question is, whats under the other sink?

    I'll get right on it sir . :respect:

    I have an opinion and I expressed it what is your problem ? Do you have more news to add about this new chip ? NO ? I thought so . Good Day !
