[TweakTown] AMD RoadMap ATI 8990, 8970, 8950  

post #1 of 174

I didnt see this anywhere, so here we go!!!!

http://www.tweaktown.com/news/27139/leakedtt_amd_radeon_hd_8990_dual_gpu_specs_leak_out/index.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

Original Link - in Spanish http://www.bitdreams.es/roadmapati.html

Warning: Expand Me! (Click to show)
I'm sure you didn't see this one coming, did you? Neither did I, don't worry. Spanish site BitDreams.se has posted what they are claiming to be the specs on AMD's upcoming next-generation dual-GPU, the Radeon HD 8990.



The leak reports that we should expect the HD 8990 in Q2 2013, meaning it is not far away at all. The leaked roadmap unveils that there are two Radeon HD 8800 series GPUs to be shipped this quarter, and with just weeks left, if it did happen, it's most likely going to be a paper launch - if it happens at all.

Now that we've got the lower-end gear out of the way, let's get straight to that succulent GPU meat - the Radeon HD 8990 "Venus XTX" which will see two Radeon HD 8970s bound onto the single GPU. The card is teased as sporting a whopping 5.1 billion transistors, 5210 stream processors and 160 texture units per core. The HD 8990 is listed as featuring 48 ROPs per core, and two 384-bit buses. Memory should reach the dizzying heights of between 6GB and 12GB and should come factory clocked at 1250MHz. The GPU cores should be set at 950MHz if the leaked roadmap holds truth to it.

Power. Power is a huge part of GPUs, and the card is mentioned of having a maximum TDP of 375W and that each core and memory on the dual-GPU card will be set lower than a single HD 8970's clock. This will mean that Radeon HD 8970's in CrossFire would be more powerful, by a small margin, than the HD 8990 - but we're used to that by now.

6GB-12GB of RAM is absolutely insane - a true monster for PCs, but just how many games take advantage of that now? Even with multiple monitors and insane amounts of anti-aliasing, I can't see any gamer getting close to 12GB of VRAM usage. Next-gen games can't come soon enough!

I remember seeing this sheet not long time ago. not the tweaktown article but the sheet...
Do AMD dare to clock the 8950 same as 8970? The difference clock-for-clock might be much higher this time than 7970/ 7950.
And I think they should work on that, seeing a 7950 reaching the max OC of a 7970 or even beating it is a very retard move rolleyes.gif.

Wow... 12 gigs of VRAM, LOL...Even though it's halved, it's still impressive

I'm interested to see how the lower (8870/8850) end cards perform, though.

Just as an aside, please shorten the spoilered part of your quote - you can't quote the entire article.

I think people are forgetting that even if the card has as much as 12GB of VRAM that it is only 6GB per GPU and Sapphire released a Vapor-X 7970 with that this gen.

i agree it would pointless right now see as we only have a few weeks left for this year...the thing is i don't know if wanna upgrade to these new beast as i'm very satisfied with my 7970's, but then again i might eat my words when i see benches lol biggrin.gif

The HD8970 specs are similar to other leaked slides so it might be accurate, not too sure about the HD8950 though.

A post about the HD8000 series not coming out until Q2 2013 was posted not too long ago though so we will see what happens.
