It might become a direct rival to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 660 TiOne might think that one information leak per day is enough for a company, but Advanced Micro Devices has managed to slip some details about a product completely different from the new 8-core Vishera CPU.
HT4U.net has learned that a new graphic processing unit will appear, called Tahiti-LE and, naturally, based on the 28nm Tahiti silicon.
As a reminder, Tahiti is found in AMD's Radeon HD 7900 series graphics adapters, the high-end cards as it were.
The Tahiti-LE-based card, whatever its name happens to be, will be somewhere between the upper mainstream and high-tier markets.
According to the report, the card won't be called HD 7930, since the 7900 series is already large enough (five cards). That said, something like “Radeon HD 7870 OC” is a possibility.
We will come back with specifications whenever they become known.
