First details on mobile Radeon HD 8000 graphics cards now available

AMD-Radeon-HD-8000M


The first representatives of the AMD Radeon HD 7000 series graphics cards appeared exactly a year ago, so it’s time for a refresh that’s getting closer and closer as Radeon HD 8000.

Some details on the desktop Radeon HD 8000 offerings came out a few weeks ago so it comes as no surprise that details on the mobile versions of the same generations are now available. Surprisingly enough the mobile Radeon HD 8000 family won’t be known as Sea Islands – instead it will carry the Solar System codename and will be based on the familiar Graphics Core Next architecture that first appeared in the AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics card.

So far details on four Radeon HD 8000M members have been exposed. The first member – Radeon HD 8500M will have 384 stream processors, up to 650 MHz GPU frequency and memory that runs at 1000 MHz (GDDR3) or 1125 MHz (GDDR5). Radeon HD 8600M will also have 384 stream processors, but the GPU will run as high as 775 MHz, while the memory will operate at 1000 MHz (GDDR3) or 1125 MHz (GDDR5). Radeon HD 8700M will offer 384 stream processors, a GPU that runs between 650 MHz and 850 MHz and memory that runs at 1000 MHz (GDDR3) or 1125 MHz (GDDR5). Finally Radeon HD 8800M will have 640 stream processors, a GPU that runs at 650-700 MHz and GDDR5 memory at 1125 MHz.

In Q2 2013 AMD will launch two new Solar System members – a model that is faster than Radeon HD 8800M and another one that sits between Radeon HD 8600M and Radeon HD 8700M. All Solar System members support AMD ZeroCore (reduced power to unused cores) and PowerTune (for “smart” clock increases) as well as DirectX 11.1.

Pricing is unknown.
