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.
XT 28nm process GCN2.0 Curacao Architecture 3 geometry engine 8 ACE2.0 55 million transistors 420mm2

floating point performance: 2.56TFlops
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.
