Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has officially described its newest line of mobile graphics for tablets and notebooks known as Radeon HD 8000M.

The new graphics line consists of Radeon HD 8800M, HD 8700M, HD 8600M and HD 8500M chips with all of them fully supporting DirectX 11.1 and the AMD Graphics Core Next architecture – all on 28 nm technology.

The Radeon HD 8500M is the slowest graphics solution of all of them. It comes with 384 stream processors while the GPU runs at up to 650 MHz and the memory depending on the type runs at up to 1125 MHz (GDDR5) and 1000 MHz (GDDR3). The GPU offers 537 GFLOPS of single-precision power and 33 GFLOPS of double-precision power.

The Radeon HD 8600M also comes with 384 stream processors and runs its GPU at up to 775 MHz and the memory at 1125 MHz (GDDR5) and 1000 MHz (GDDR3). The GPU offers 633 GFLOPS of single-precision power and 39 GFLOPS of double-precision power.

The Radeon HD 8700M offers 384 stream processors and a GPU that works at 650-850 MHz and memory that runs at 1125 MHz (GDDR5) and 1000 MHz (GDDR3). Its GPU offers 537-691 GFLOPS of single-precision power and 33-42 GFLOPS of double-precision power.

Finally the Radeon HD 8800M comes with 640 stream processors and a GPU that works at 650-700 MHz and GDDR5 memory only that works at 1125 MHz. The GPU offers 992 GFLOPS of single-precision power and 62 GFLOPS of double-precision power.

All new graphics solutions also support AMD ZeroCore and AMD PowerTune technologies – the former turns off unused graphics cores and the latter increases clock speed when this is possible and feasible. Furthermore AMD says the chips support the Enduro technology that manages energy efficiency of mobile GPUs.

Additionally, AMD announced the availability of AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series desktop graphics, available only through OEMs. The AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series features revolutionary GCN Architecture with support for DirectX 11.1 for optimal acceleration of Windows 8 platforms, AMD App Acceleration to enhance GPU performance, and features intelligent power management technology such as AMD PowerTune with boost. Both announcements represent a commitment from AMD to provide the ideal graphics solution for everyday notebook and desktop users, whether they’re gaming, streaming online HD videos, creating presentations or editing photos or videos.
