AMD Radeon HD 7970 and 7950 unleashed in January 2012.

AMD’s new 28nm GPU is rumoured to be released in January of next year. The new GPU’s were initially aimed to be released end of this year but through lots of scepticism and reports from multiple sources, a 2012 launch is imminent.

The current AMD HD 6000 series known as Cayman will be the predecessor to the upcoming HD 7000 series which has been titled Tahiti. The cards will come in two different variations namely XP and PRO editions which is synonamous with the older AGP radeon cards. Guessing that AMD will be carrying on with the same continous naming sequence of the HD cards, we can expect the high end range of Tahiti to be the HD 7950 and HD 7970.

As usual, these two cards will both be single GPU boards and will give way to its dual GPU big brother, the HD 7990 a couple months after. Looks like AMD will again be snatching up the sales of the GPU market ahead of their green themed foe.

The Tahiti GPU will bring AMD’s new GCN (Graphics Core Next) technology which is designed to bring unparalleled graphics and computer application performance.
So far there has been no indication on price and if it will be using the new Generation of PCI express.
