    Default Radeon HD 9000 Series in October



    June was surely a month of GeForce GTX 700 series. NVIDIA launched three cards in less than 30 days without any actual response from AMD.

    If you thought that AMD engineers were on vacation then you are mistaken. Apparently they were working on new GPUs, especially a Hawaii silicon, which is believed to power the upcoming Radeon HD 9970 and HD 9950. Yes, that’s not a typo, AMD will supposedly drop the HD 8000 naming reserved for OEM-parts, and use HD 9000 instead. This was rumored for a long time, but people were not convinced enough to confirmed it. According to my sources this is true, there won’t be any Radeon HD 8970 non-OEM card, which if you think about actually makes sense. Imagine two cards having the same name, but different specs. Maybe now people will stop posting Radeon HD 8970 OEM datasheet as a news about a leaked document directly from AMD site (seriously don’t do that).

    According to ChinaDIY, AMD could be preparing its Radeon HD 9000 series for October, which is the launch month for Battlefield 4, a Gaming Evolved title. My information is more optimistic. Unless the roadmap has changed, AMD could show off the new series in September. Some sources even claim it could be the first week of September. Regardless of what month is it going to be, we are two or three months until the new series arrive. Most likely AMD will start with HD 9970, which if the rumors are true will be faster than GeForce GTX 780, but slower than GTX TITAN. However the big question is not the performance, but the price. If the card would cost $550, then we have a clear winner.

    The Chinese source also claims that AMD will resurrect the Radeon 9550, only now with the HD-part. Interesting fact is that it’s almost exactly 9 years since the launch of this card.

    I wonder if they'll ever release a one big GPU card like Titan

    AMD won't because they don't/didn't already have something like what Nvidia had with their K20X. AMD's only solution is dual GPUs.

    I guess AMD scrapped Sea Islands and jumped straight to Volcanic Islands.

    Well that's good for AMD then none the less because they need to stay competitive to a certain point or the consumer will lose in a big way.

    I'm ready to see the performance. Also ready to see what sort of optimization advantage AMD is going to receive from game devs. Since the next gen consoles are all powered by AMD, then I would presume the optimization for them will translate over to the PC world as well. We shall certainly see. Even if AMD doesn't crush nVidia with the 9000 series, if it's comparable performance at a cheaper price, we all win!

    Thats not true. The Titan is based on workstation GPU cores. They tweaked a few things and released it as a consumer desktop card. AMD if they wanted to could and can do the same thing with Firepro. Do you know why they didnt? Because its stupid. Titan is a short run specialty GPU. A gimmick. Nvidia wanted the fastest single GPU crown. Great you go it. At what cost? You charged your customers $1000 for a card that loses to AMD Dual GPU cards at higher resolutions in almost every benchmark. When it does win its by same margins. The Devil 13 and Asus Ares II were also cheaper and came with a boat load of games. So again AMD did not have to release some silly $1000 or more gpu. Nvidia had no choice but to release it. The 7970 was killing it. All of the ODM overclocked cards, AMD releasing updates that continued to add even more performance and again all those free games. Nvidia was losing this round and had to do something to change the tone. And it worked. Everyone bought into the hype like Titan is something great. Go read the reviews from solid reviews sites and you will see the Titan is not a good buy. It loses to Nvidias own Dual GPU card that cost less. So what was the point of making the Titan again? Hype. Hook, line and sinker.

    The Titan is nothing more than a novelty.
