    Default AMD Radeon HD 9970 Hawaii Detailed, Volcanic Islands GPUs Set for Late 2013

    ften something unexpected happens, even on the IT market, and Advanced Micro Devices has definitely taken the world by surprise when it leaked the specifications of the flagship Volcanic Islands GPU.

    The Sea Islands range of graphics processing units will power the Radeon HD 8000 series graphics cards, and has already been used in accelerated processing units like Richland.

    It isn't supposed to reach the market before the second half of 2013 though, or even later, in 2014.

    That is why it might come as a shock to learn the specifications of the best Volcanic Islands GPU, although that shock may be nothing compared to the rumor that Volcanic Islands will arrive before the year is out.

    The report was made by ChipHell and seems to suggest that AMD will skip Sea Islands completely, at least insofar as the discrete GPU and add-in board industry is concerned.

    The GPUs will be designed with the 20nm Gate-Last process from TSMC or Common Platform Alliance, assuming no problems arise that force 28nm to be used again.

    The Hawaii graphics core (though Reykjavik and Honolulu are two other possible codenames) will be the best of the lot and will replace the Tahiti used in Radeon HD 7900 adapters.

    The Volcanic Islands-based series of AiBs would bear the series moniker of Radeon 9000 series.

    Thus, the flagship single-chip model will be dubbed Radeon HD 9970.

    We're not sure about the specs of the card itself, like memory amount, VRAM frequency, ports, etc.

    What we do have is the bare list of GPU specs. The 20nm chip has 4,096 Stream Processors, four geometry engines, 16 SPUs (serial processor units), 256 TMUs, 64 ROPs and a GDDR5 interface of 512 bits.

    True, all this comes from a very blurry block diagram which should be taken with a grain of salt, but it is better than nothing.

    The HD 8XXX series is for OEM only which are mostly rebadged HD 7000 stuff for desktops and laptops alike, so the HD 9970 fits.

    What I wrote is absolutely correct. There's no place to be wrong. And I have added the source as well.

    However, 8000 series known as Sea Island series has 2013 expected launch schedule and Volcanic Islands series aka 9000 series is expected to launch in 2014 but the OP article guessed its late 2013. Its possible to release it since next-gen is near. So 9970 is correct and the article only guessed what it might be. So read before comment, you know whom I said it to.

    And:

    great....seeing the specs even with a die shrink these cards ll probably be power hogs.and it might cost 1k$..it'll beat the titan...and it could be mighty oc'er...if the strem procys are equal to gcn than and with the other improvement there could be a 3x perf boost in the 9970 than the 7970 .just wish that the 9850 cost 200$.and nvidia surely aint just going to be sitting on their a**es and watch.
