X-bit Labs spotted info on AMD's website which confirms the upcoming 40nm ATI RV740, M93 and M97 GPUs. Additionally, the AMD 890 chipset is also confirmed.
AMD recently listed its code-named ATI RV740 graphics processing unit for desktops as well as M93 and M97 graphics chips for mobile computers at its web-site as supported by ATI Catalyst drivers. All three chips are the first GPUs produced using 40nm process technology at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company and, based on the fact that they are already supported by drivers, are completely functional and ready to ship.

40nm process technology allows making graphics processors more complex and energy efficient without price increases, which is very important when it comes to entry-level or mobile graphics sub-systems. Technical specifications of the ATI RV740, M93 and M97 graphics processors are unknown at present.
