Advanced Micro Devices will soon deliver a new graphics processing unit at its next “AMD Tuesday” event.
This means that, in three days time, a new GPU will be ready to assist customers.
The chip in question is a 28nm Pitcairn-based discrete GPU, for laptops.
It bears the name of Radeon HD 7970M and might just be the best (NVIDIA's GTX 675M is a rebranded, previous-generation GF114 Fermi unit, not a Kepler).
We already know of laptops that will use the chip, like the Dell Alienware line
No doubt there will be many more announcements to this effect as soon as April 24 comes and goes. We'll keep you posted the best we can.
Hopefully, there will be enough of these chips to go around. TSMC seems to be having trouble with 28nm, although AMD said it hasn't seen any impact on its end
