[eT] AMD Preparing Radeon HD 7790 Bonaire XT GPU

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 
Quote:
a report has come up that the company will be releasing a HD 7790 GPU card in April in an effort to bridge the gap between the HD 7770 and HD 7850 graphics card. It was further stated that unlike these cards, the AMD HD 7790 Radeon will be based on the Bonaire XT core. This will be the first AMD GPU that will be based on GCN 2.0 architecture which is said to be used for the AMD 8000 series GPU as well.
Quote:
the performance of the HD 7790 is so impressive that AMD have asked manufacturers not to have a non-reference/overclocked version of the cards. The reason that they’ve asked to do so is because AMD has fear that doing so may surpass the performance of HD 7850, not only defeating the purpose but also eventually crippling HD 7850′s sales.

Overclocked version will be better than HD 7850 but the price is cheaper than HD 7850? That's AMD for you. thumb.gif

Interesting. The gap between the 7770 and 7850 is pretty decent.

Weird move all around, if true.
Why on earth would they show their hand like this, I mean, to release a midrange card using the architecture they'll be using in their 8000 series to be expected in 2014? And on top of that to ask their partners not to release non-reference cards? If true you can be sure it will be voltage locked as well... Why not just lower prices on the 7850?

interesting card. I want to see my card get pulvarised TBH. would definitely show the current progression of GCN refresh early stages.

I think they want to release new cards to keep their market moving but don't have new dies for an entire range of cards that would make up the 8000 series. How bad would it be for marketing to release the 8000 series without any flagships? Also by locking down the cards, they keep the performance in line with the current series. I see plenty of price/perf and perf/watt winners soon. Then they can release a slightly updated die for the 8000 series with higher clocks. At least, that's how I see it.
