AMD Volcanic Islands GPUs Leaked
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
AMD’s Volcanic Islands codename Hawaii GPUs have been officially confirmed by an AMD website. First spotted by Guru3D forum member Lane the AMD website confirms that the GPUs exist and are in development. Interestingly the AiB (add in board) partner training program begins on September 26th suggesting the release will follow soon after in Q4 of this year.
While the website doesn’t reveal to us new details what we do now have is official confirmation more or less. If you are interested in checking out details on the new HD 9000 series then please check here. Interestingly AMD are skipping the HD 8000 series and going straight to the HD 9000 series. The flagship of the series will be HD 9970 which has already been spotted.
Enthusiasts will be hoping that AMD’s second iteration of the 28nm process will be capable of matching Nvidia’s GK110 based GTX Titan and GTX 780s that are currently dominating AMD at the top end of the market. Interestingly Nvidia has said it plans to release no new GPUs until AMD responds with new releases of their own.
