Interesting and old rumors surfaced once again, apparantly Chiphell now thinks they have stumbled into what they think are the specs of AMD's upcoming GCN 2.0 (Radeon 8000 series) GPUs. This is all translated poorly with an online translator but here we go: Chaos for many years has finally finalized, AMD include all next-generation consoles solutions to face the threat of GTX7 AMD apparently intimate knowledge of the system with the release of the new host GCN2.0 architecture also is no longer a secret message from the two channels will be in Q3 AMD Posted HD8000 series graphics cards.
This is sorted out by analyzing the whole system specifications, mind you that nothing about this info has been checked or verified and remains speculative and even contradicting.
HD8970 XT 28nm process GCN2.0 Curacao Architecture 3 geometry engine 8 ACE2.0 55 million transistors 420mm2 36CU 2304SP 144TMU 48ROPs 6GB GDDR5 384Bit 1100/7000MHz 250W floating point performance: 5.07TFlops US599 4299元 VS HD7970GHz +35%
HD8950 XT 28nm process GCN2.0 Hainan architecture two geometry engine 8 ACE2.0 35 million transistors 270mm2 28Cu 1792SP 112TMU 32ROPs 256Bit 4GB GDDR5 1200/7000MHz 190W floating point performance: 4.30TFlops US399 2799元 VS HD7970GHz +10%
HD8870 Hainan Pro 28nm process GCN2.0 architecture two geometry engine 8 ACE2.0 35 million transistors 270mm2 24CU 1536SP 96TMU 32ROPs 256Bit 2GB GDDR5 1100/6000MHz 160W floating point performance: 3.38TFlops US299 2099元 vs HD7870 + 40%
HD8850 Hainan LE 28nm process GCN2.0 architecture two geometry engine 8 ACE2.0 35 million transistors 270mm2 20Cu 1280SP 80TMU 32ROPs 256Bit 2GB GDDR5 1000/6000MHz 130W floating point performance: 2.56TFlops US229 1599元 vs HD7870 +15%
Now then, The specs are the same as the rumours suggested last year which basically have been shot down. The fact that these specs again pop up indicated that Chiphell either took 1 year old specs from a website and reported them as new, or .. there might be significance in this rumor.
It remains speculation, but a good rumor every now and then, well .. that's ok we think. Thanks Blackops_2 for this post.
