AMD’s latest Radeon HD 7790 graphics card accidentally revealed
While the AMD HD 8000 series won't be available until Q3 of this year, that doesn't stop AMD from releasing some new cards in their HD 7000 lineup. Like NVIDIA's recent release with the GTX TITAN, AMD also aims to provide some stopgap solutions for their consumers until the next generation hits.
Results posted on CL Benchmark showed the result of test runs performed on the rumored Radeon HD 7790 graphics card. The benchmarks have since been removed, but not before Tom's Hardware picked it up. Specs wise the Radeon HD 7790 comes with 2GB GDDR5 of memory with 128-bit architecture and a core clock speed of 1075MHz on 786 shader cores.
The more interesting thing about the Radeon HD 7790, however, is that it's based on the Graphics Core Next (GCN) 2.0 architecture from the 28 nm Bonnaire XT chipset, which will be used in the upcoming HD 8000 series. The official word from AMD will be coming soon, with the expected release of the Radeon HD 7790 later this month or early April, for a price of $150, around AED 600.
