    Just ahead of a skirmish between AMD and NVIDIA in the sub-$200 market segment, which could go down later this month, TechPowerUp released GPU-Z v0.6.9, with tested support for the two contenders: AMD Radeon HD 7790, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti with GPU Boost (refresh). In addition, the new GPU-Z version gets you support for Radeon HD 8870M, GeForce GT 415, and GT 750M. For GeForce "Kepler" family GPUs, DirectX feature-set value is fixed. A number of tool-tips are added to key window elements, such as vendor logo, vBIOS extraction, render test, and screen-capture.

    its going to be 768. Just about EVERY other site is now reporting 768 shaders.

    If the SP count really was 768, which the older v0.6.8 already reports, then we wouldn't have changed it on v0.6.9, would we?

    I'll gladly retract my statement once a proper 6.9 screenshot and official review/release from AMD are availiable :D

    The evidence showing it's not 768 SP is already out there, you don't need to wait for a screenshot or official review.

    728 makes no sense at all. each CU is 64 shaders, so it needs to be a multiple of 64

    Hmm. That would be interesting, wunnit?

    Something like ~1025/6000 then?

    That would certainly be more respectable...not to mention much more comparable to the new 650ti. It would also make sense with ~1.05v (or aka one would think good yields/power consumption). This also goes along with the fact AMD has slyly mentioned once or twice new products had granularity of 64sp/1CU, which apparently was not the case with some other chips (one would think it was 128/2CU).

    Developing that thought further:

    This would also explain how (in conjunction with doing something similar with Hainan) they could later release new 8000 products with more SPs and higher clock (say 896sp/1100 and 7ghz) and one lower (say 768/925 and 5ghz).

    That...actually would make a hell of a lot of sense in a bajillion different ways. Guess we'll see.

    I have a really hard time believing 896. It would kill 7850 for one, not to mention the bandwidth just is not there on a 128-bit bus unless they use 7gbps memory or absurdly low core clocks. It would be such a strange hodgepodge. I have a hard time believing they would release such a product before they do a series refresh.

    We don't create skins. We like to eat, bring us enough cookies, your skin, and we'll make you a t77snapshot Edition.
