Chip code-named “Bonaire”, has 896 stream processors, and will compete with the GTX 650Ti.

Although AMD has not this year using the new architecture of the product, but they continued to improve the existing product planning.

AMD’s $ 110 Radeon HD 7770 and $ 170 Radeon HD 7850 price band, is just $ 150 GTX 650 Ti locked In order to gain market share blocks within AMD decided not to HD 7850 1GB price revised down but decided to launch a new product Radeon HD 7790, is to contend with the GTX 650 Ti.

According to sources have pointed out, HD 7790, like the GCN architecture, HD 7770 Cape Verde transistors that can seat ASIC’s selection has been squeezed to the limit; 7800 series of Pitcairn castration seems too little does not comply economic benefits. Therefore, AMD decided to launch a new ASIC design, will have 896 stream processors, the performance of the subject about falls about 10% than the HD 7850 slower, ASIC named Bonaire.


Nature due to the positioning of the HD 7790, the design should still go relatively cheap design identical HD 7770, currently known memory bus width than Pitcairn 256bit to narrow. In the VRM design also in favor of low-cost design of the HD 7770.


HD 7790 is expected to be released in April, there will be further described and test.

In addition, AMD had originally intended with PowerColor and Sapphire first grade AIB cooperation codenamed “Bonaire” Radeon HD 7790, but the process seems to have some of the variables, launched instead with by all the partners.
