Could this be the AMD Radeon HD 8970?

Posted on Monday, June 10 2013 @ 20:35:11 CEST by

WCCF Tech came across a picture and specifications of what is claimed to be AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 8970. If the rumor is correct, the card is based on the 28nm Curacao XT GPU, which features 2304 stream processors, 48 raster operators, 144 TMUs, a 384-bit memory bus, 3GB GDDR5 memory and a price tag of $549.
In addition to the picture, the site has also leaked alleged specifications of the Radeon HD 8970 GPU. According to them, the GPU is powered by the 28nm Curacao XT core which features 2304 stream processors, 48 Raster operators and a 3 GB GDDR5 memory running along a 384-bit wide interface. The core operates at 1000 MHz or 1 GHz clock speed while the memory is configured at 6500 MHz or 6.5 GHz effective frequency. The TDP of the card is a bit higher than the Radeon HD 7970 at 250W compared to 210W. This could be due to the addition of much higher number of transistors and stream processors in the latest flagship Radeon HD 8970 core. The card is rumored to be priced at $550 which is $100 under the NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce GTX 780 core. So whether or not it could defeat the green team’s flagship GPU is only a question that would settled when the card is launched.
