Die of AMD Southern Islands GPUs in high resolution
Late last year launched its gpu amd Radeon HD 7970 “Tahiti XT”, the first of the new GPU architecture-based AMD Graphics Core Next , which was established as one of the most competent of AMD GPUs, showing a yield very competent in all areas (games, GPU accelerated applications “GPGPU”, and professional applications).
But curiously, despite the AMD-based GPUs Graphics Core Next architecture have been released for several months, until AMD had not published any of DIE image of their chips, nothing except a clear thumbnails used in his presentations ( as the first picture), but AMD finally, during the event HotChips 2012 brings us detailed images of their GPUs Tahiti, pitcairn and Cape Verde.
The most powerful GPU AMD GPUs used in the Radeon HD 7970 as, FirePro W9000, S9000 FirePro and others. The central area consists of the graphics core itself, comprising the Asyncronous Compute Engines (ACE) from other units are surrounded by Compute Units (also called Graphics Core Next, or GCN Shaders Shaders). In areas where we have bright green memory controllers, L2 and rendering units (ROPs).
Conformation very similar to that of his older brother, but with a smaller size, is appreciated considerably fewer of Compute Units and memory controllers and rendering units.
The smallest of the Radeon HD 7000 GPUs from AMD, maintains the basic configuration of his two older brothers, with the obvious decrease computation units and memory controllers.
