AMD prepping three mobile DX11 GPUs

Posted on Monday, Oct 12 2009 @ 19:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
FUD Zilla reports AMD is working on three DirectX 11 graphics cards for notebooks. Their codenames are "Cozumel" for the high-end model, "Ibiza" for the mainstream card and "Kauai" for budget laptops.
Cozumel is a Caribbean island, Ibiza is in Spain while Kauai is in Hawaii. We don’t know much about this generation apart that it’s a brand new chip, not just tweaked version of RV770 / RV870 architecture and that it supports MIMD shaders.

Since 28nm should not be ready by early 2011 these chips might be developed in 32nm process and later migrate to 28nm when available, but this is something one can only speculate at this point.

I bet these are "out" in machines by the beginning of 2010 beating Nvidia by a year or more
