AMD Radeon HD 7970M to be released on 24th
Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
The next “AMD Tuesday” is the coming one, on which the company plans to launch Radeon HD 7970M, its next high-end discrete GPU for notebooks.
Codenamed “Thames”, the HD 7970M will be based on the 28 nm “Pitcairn” silicon, on which desktop Radeon HD 7800 series, is also based.
When launched, the HD 7970M could become the fastest notebook discrete GPU, since NVIDIA’s fastest discrete notebook GPU, and the GeForce GTX 675M are based on previous-generation 40 nm GF114, over which Pitcairn already established a performance lead, in the desktop front.
We are hearing that notebook vendors already have their designs based on this chip ready in the pipeline.
