TechPowerUp received word that only a small number of AMD's add-in board partners have plans to release a "Tahiti LE" based graphics. This new Radeon HD 7800 series chip is basically a cut-down Radeon HD 7950, it's said to feature 1536 stream processors, 925MHz core, 975MHz boost, 256-bit memory bus, and 2GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 6000MHz.
According to TPU, it looks like Club3D, PowerColor and VTX 3D will be among the sole brands to launch a Tahiti LE card. Pricing of these cards is said to be near NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 660, while performance is claimed to be 15% better.
The launch date of Tahiti LE is Npvember 27.
Earlier this week, Club 3D defied the November 27 launch date to release the HD 7870 jokerCard, which is believed to stick to the final specifications of "Tahiti LE." Since TUL is the contract manufacturer for Club 3D, one can safely confirm that two AIB brands owned by it, PowerColor and VTX 3D, will announce HD 7870 "Tahiti LE." Incidentally, the three are also among the only AIBs with a Radeon HD 7990 dual-GPU graphics card, apart from HIS.
