For months now, AMD has been promising to have 28-nm GPUs in the market by the end of 2011. According to a story by Fudzilla, however, the crown jewel of the company's 28-nm lineup won't materialize until after the New Year.
Fudzilla says it has word from "multiple industry sources" that Tahiti, AMD's upcoming 28-nm single-GPU flagship, will launch in January. The card will be available in two flavors, which the site expects to be dubbed Radeon HD 7970 and Radeon HD 7950. Yes, it sounds like AMD may stick to its now four-year-old GPU model numbering scheme.
In an older piece, Fudzilla claims the Radeon HD 7900 series could be in the same league as the Radeon HD 6990, both in terms of performance and pricing. With 6990 cards currently retailing around the $700 mark, that could make Tahiti a very expensive destination indeed. Here's hoping we won't have to wait too long for cheaper derivatives.
