Can't Wait! I'm hoping to get a 7950 which should absolutely slaughter my GTS 250 (~3.5x the performance) at roughly the same power consumption :) totally awesome

AMD has done well with it's acquisition of ATi.
I absolutely love how AMD and Nvidia trade blows with each other. :p

I expect this to be much the same, the 6990 was amazing.
Obviously like everyone else reading this comment, I am looking forward to seeing some reviews and benchmarks/comparisons to the 6 vs the 7 series. :)

I wonder what Nvidia has as well, kinda stupid I just got my 580 and plan on getting another one within a few weeks, especially with these new cards just around the corner.. :\

Where is this chip being manufactured? TSMC or GF? As I am sure they stopped using GF. Well hopefully this will be worth putting some money back into their company. Hopefully they put towards research and their debt.

i agree ATI and Nvidia going back and forth is only helping us consumers. It almost is similar to the phone industry, every month seems to be a new gpu.

Is this their first 28nm?

Yeh, it's the first 28nm GPU from both AMD and nVidia. The GPU is produced at TSMC which got the 28nm process running just recently.

[citation][nom].[/nom]The cards will utilize a new GCN architecture, which is expected to be its biggest advancement in GPU architecture since Radeon HD 2000 series. [/citation]

I hope it's not just marketing bs

Is the xdr 2 vram is better than gddr5 ??
I think it will use pci-e 3.0 because the ivy bridge boards are coming with pci-e 3.0 and also it is backwards compatible with pci-e 2.0 . I can't wait to upgrade to a 7870 from my old 4650

Should be a VERY nice range of cards, Although for now I am more interested in replacing my CPU with something that isn't bottle-necking my 6850 lol

Wouldn't be expecting PCI-E 3.0 too much, The performance boost is extremely marginal and the current usage is nowhere near the performance ceiling of PCI-E 2.0 with the exception of some fairly rare peaks in usage.

I'm excited as well. I'm planning to buy HD 6870, but I want to see the pricing of HD 7000 series when it gets released in my country. Who knows. :)
 
i am also excited because southern island (gcn) is amd's first original gpu architecture afaik.
haven't heard about gddr6 but heard that xdr2 is much more powerful and more power efficient than gddr5.
rambus is a massive troll ofc but if they make a performance-power-price effective ram, then why not use it.
and the new high end gpus are rumored to use 384 bit bus, means more memory bandwitdh for high res gaming with eyecandies turned up to 15!
imo amd already has the highest performing (abd the most power efficient) 256-bit bus gfx cards in the market today - the radeon hd 6970 and the dual gpu 6990. with the new 384-bit cards, they'll only get better!

Hello AMD,

Can the graphics team cross train with the processor team?

They making a terrific job in the graphics design, the processor team might learn something from them.

AMD pretty much has to switch focus. They can no longer compete with Intel for the CPU crown anymore. Going where the market is and and focusing on their strengths well help bring AMD out from under the red. AMD has no other option but to sink or swim at this point. The new directions they are taken by focusing more on smart phones and tablets APU's where the market is will help them greatly. Focusing where their market is already strong in GPU's will help them greatly. Continuing to Focus on trying to top Intel's CPU's will put them bankrupt.

I'm sure any 7000 series will be out of my price range. I am just hoping it causes a ridiculous price drop for the 6000 series. :) Very much looking forward to the 7000 series benchmarks.
