AMD is just about to launch its highly anticipated “Southern Island” Series graphic cards, However AMD’s ASIC design department employees have leaked what is known to be the successor of the current 28nm chips codenamed “Sea Islands”.

The Sea Island chip would also be based on TSMC’s 28nm Fabrication process but its unknown whether they would compete against Nvidia’s High End 28nm Kepler based card (Most likely to launch in 2H 2012) or the Maxwell Series which is expected to launch in 2013-2014.

Well using Sea Islands will certainly give AMD plenty of names to choose from (100+).

And the next codename will be "Islands" and then after that it will be "Landforms".
