1st half of this year looks exciting.
With the launch of the new AMD HD 7950 graphics card, a lot of information has come out from various sources. Bright Side of News reported a leaked document from one of AMD’s partners that listed the roadmap for the release of the rest of the HD7000 series graphics cards.
The slide itself is pretty self explanatory with the release schedule. After the HD 79xx series, the first thing we’ll see are the budget oriented, sub-$100 HD77xx cards in mid-February. Following that will be the mainstream, sub-$200 HD 78xx cards out in March, presumably along the same time as the Nvidia 600 series cards. So by the time Nvidia launches their new cards, AMD will have already released most of their line-up.
Of course, that’s not where the Graphics Core Next architecture release ends, as the dual-GPU HD 7990 comes out in early Q2 of this year, most likely in April.
