The funny fact is next gen is Oland XT not Hawai XT.

1- Those specifications are false.

2- Volcanic Islands are not a refresh of the GCN architecture.

3- Oland is an entry level chip.

4- Hawaii is the next flagship chip from AMD.

Even if the 512 bit memory bus is true, should they make the VRAM to 8GB? And also, these specs sound way off.

Of course they are I think you are confusing the term Refresh with rebrand but they are not the same term.
For example the 5870 to 6970 was a refresh, refresh just means update of an existing process.

That trash site should not even belong here.

This is supposed to be for possible rumours. They just pull numbers out of their butt there. Should we waste our time by any trash site that pulls numbers out of their butt? Anyone can do it.

At least have some kind of credibility. That site is obviously and explicitly without any kind of source.

I was interested up until I saw the quote from wccftech the site is using. Then I knew there was no hope of it being accurate.

I am well aware of both terms and i mean what i said earlier, Volcanic Islands is not an updated GCN architecture. Its a new one, if they had to take out a refresh, then AMD would have released the next Radeon cards by now.

The quote from WCCFtech has nothing to do with the specifications. The specs are a roundup of the info each and every site has reported about the Hawaii XT to this date. WCCFTech's quote merely states that the next generation chips might have possibly been shipped out to manufacturer's which was reported on Chiphell forums.

The new 9970 should be a refresh if it is not that would mean they somehow got TSMC's fabs on 20nm available and were already prepared for tap out it doesn't make sense.
I think we'll see 2560 stream processors that is quite possible but not something like 4K that is ludicrous.

I think we are all in agreement that these specs are made up, especially considering there is literally no other website giving these specs.
post #20 of 339
New architecture does not necessarily mean a new process node. Take R600 for example.

I'm pretty sure the next AMD series will be a refresh though. Unless you'd call Kepler a different architecture than Fermi.
