PowerColor has confirmed, about the launch of the next generation AMD HD 7000 series graphics cards. In an interview by the people of DonanimHaber, with Elaine Liao, Director of Sales for the brand, said that the new cards can be expected in the first quarter of 2012, as opposed to earlier rumors, which placed the launch of AMD HD 7000 series Graphic cards in the last section of this year.
AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series Seem to be manufactured on 40nm Process
Another surprise extracted from the words of the sales manager is that PowerColor is apparently continue to manufacture the next generation Radeon HD with a process of 40 nanometers (40nm). This clearly conflicts with the idea that both AMD and its competitor Nvidia are now ready to jump to a 28nm manufacturing process. Similarly, it is absolutely opposed to the official statement, which the manufacturer offered in July, in which he claimed that the new AMD Radeon HD 7000 series would have an effective transition to 28nm process technology.
Power Color HD 6870 X2 and HD 6970X2 are Ready
The interview with DonanimHaber also revealed details about the new products of PowerColor, a known collaborator with ATi / AMD, who has prepared a Radeon HD6870 X2 for this year, with two cores Barts and Eyefinity with a capacity to support the simultaneous connection from a single card to multiple computers and monitors for multi-screen gaming. The other important development is the new PowerColor HD 6970 X2 , which includes two units of complete Cayman.
Earlier Official Announcement by AMD on HD 7000 series Cards Release Date
AMD officially announced in July the next generation Graphic cards are Radeon HD7000 series, they will be released by the end of the year and the technology used for the production of the HD 7000 series GPU is 28nm process technology, which would not only include more transistors and processing cores in the same package, but also reduce consumption and heat production units.
What happened then?
Power Color is a close collaborator of ATi for a long time, producing almost all models from the old Radeon 7000 (not HD), so that the information their representatives hold should be fairly accurate. If there is a communication failure between the two companies, then they could be talking about problems in the development of new nuclei, which would have resulted in a delay on the agenda of AMD, as well as a regression to the primeror prototypes, derivatives nuclei, Blackcomb, Whistler and Seymour, 40 nanometers.
The Delay on AMD Radeon HD 7000 series card’s Release Date could lead Nvidia to a winning edge
The possibility of this delay of AMD Radeon HD 7000 series cards would become a great disadvantage to AMD, when compared to Nvidia, which seems to have a very detailed plan regarding the next generation of GeForce graphic cards.
