Focus to remain on 28nm architecture to be used in next-gen consoles.


In a recent tweet AMD’s marketing manager has confirmed that the company will not be releasing the much anticipated HD 8000 series of graphics cards this year, but instead will focus on the existing HD 7000 series. The HD 8000 series currently being advertised by OEMs is just a rebranding of the existing hardware with, presumably, minor clock speed bumps. The marketing campaign for the “Never Settle Bundle” will continue on.

The true HD 8000, it seems, won’t be out till Q4 of this year as seen from the roadmap chart released on 4gamer. For the mean time AMD will be focusing instead on their 28nm GPU architecture which will be used in the upcoming next-gen consoles, most likely the PS4.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
