AMD Announces Radeon HD 8000M Series GPUs for notebooks

AMD Announces Radeon HD 8000M Series GPUs for notebooks

Traditionally used to reveal the year-end specifications of its new generation of GPUs for desktops and laptops, and from Muropaketti we get the specifications of AMD GPUs for Notebooks series mid to low.

Unlike desktop GPUs, which AMD calls the name of islands, their notebook GPUs traditionally use code names based on city, naming it leaves with its new AMD Radeon HD 8000M Series GPUs for laptops, which are called (Solar System), and are code names names of stars and planets in the solar system: Sun, Venus and Mars, as had leaked a few months ago .

The new family of GPUs AMD Radeon HD 8000M Series will be based on a refined version of the architecture which is called (others called Graphics Core Next) and the first two members of this new family of GPUs will be conformed by 384 and 640 shader processors and are manufactured with the 28nm manufacturing process at TSMC.

The AMD Radeon HD 8500/8600/8700 GPUs Series gpu will be based on Mars, which is comprised of a total of 384 shader processors (2 CUAs formed by 3 Compute Engines “CU” each), which is the first bet AMD based economic evolved version of the Graphics Core Next architecture.

We also have the AMD Radeon HD 8800M GPUs Series, which will be based on the GPU Venus, which has 640 shader processors (10 CUs), and could be an evolved version of the current Cape Verde GPU (768 shaders, used in AMD Radeon HD GPUs 7770), so it would not be surprising to also see a version with up to 768 shader processors active.

Both new GPUs will make their appearance between January to March 2013, and will be followed by the GPU “Radeon HD 8900M Series”, which still do not have details, but most likely having 1280 or more shader processors, and come from April to June next year.
