Radeon HD 7000M Mobile GPUs Slated For December Launch Tabled

Around the 9th of December, AMD will announce its first Radeon HD 7000M series graphics processors, beginning with mobile parts (for notebooks). There will be at least 16 models announced, all based on two silicons: "Thames" and "Seymour", and being carved out of toggling various components within those GPUs. The models AMD will be launching will span across the Radeon HD 7400M series, 7500M series, and 7600M series. Thames and Seymour are brand new chips built on the 28 nanometer silicon fabrication process, which will allow AMD more TDP headroom, which it can use to step up clock speeds.

While we don't have key details such as stream processor, ROP, and TMU counts, a table based on data compiled by CompuBase.de lists out GPU and memory clock speeds, memory interface widths, and memory type. The table also mentions some higher-end GPU models named "Chelsea", "Heathrow", and "Wimbeldon". By now you know that all these codenames are after names of places in the UK. That's one way you can identify Radeon HD 7000M mobile GPUs from the "Southern Islands" Radeon HD 7000 desktop discrete GPU family (named after islands in the southern hemisphere).

Not the 450MHz/DDR3 SKUs again. :(

I bought my laptop a year ago with an HD 5650/1GB DDR3, and apparently the HD 5650 exists in 450MHz-650MHz flavors. Guess which one I got...

I don't really understand why AMD continues to pump out 128 bit DDR3 GPUs with 1600MHz DDR3 when a 64 bit card with 4000MHz effective GDDR5 has more bandwidth. My desktop HD 6450 (overclocked RAM of course) has a 10GB/s advantage over the HD 5650 piece of crap in my laptop.

Maybe because it's more cost effective for them? And also 95+% of the people who buy laptops don't know how powerful their graphics card actually is, so AMD figures that if they just rebatch their video cards with new names, it will eventually get them more sales as if they released brand new cards with brand new architecture with shit-kicking performance. But why would they? :p
But I would see this as a strategy no question about it. Balancing the performance to power usage to price ratio certainly proves no easy feat.
