The Radeon HD 7750 - 7990 all based on the new GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture, have been detailed alongside the price and expected release dates. Interestingly there will be a HD 7950 with a still respectable 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory priced at $399, $50 less than the 3GB GDDR5 version, offering better price to performance.


The HD 7970 and HD 7950 will be available on the 9th of January and we have a review of the HD 7970 here

A Secret Card?
We have seen some impressive projected numbers from the green camp and if they live up to their expectations, the GTX 780 may be something special. Though a development chart, seemingly from Sapphire, has been seen with an unknown graphics card and its specifications striked out.

Leaked document with an unknown graphics card striked out.

Packing a hefty 2304SP and a base core frequency of 1GHz, is this a secret card (HD 7980 or HD 7970 '2304' vers?) that AMD may release to combat toe-to-toe with the GTX 780? Or could it simply be a GPU core that was planned and scrapped? Or is the Internet chatting breeze... Again...
