Radeon HD 7000 hitting mass production next month

AMDJust when you thought you couldn’t get more confused trying to remember all the names of the vast quantities of graphics cards being pumped out by AMD and Nvidia this past year, AMD are bringing out 3 more that fall squarely in the entry-level to mid-range section of their 6000 series.

The 6670, 6570 and 6450 will be launched in 7 days time on the 19th of April.

But wait, if you’re holding out for the latest and greatest you might want to hang on to your cash for a little longer. According to a source close to DigiTimes AMD’s 7000 series a.k.a. ‘Southern Islands’ is scheduled for mass production in May. The 7000 series is based on the 28 nm manufacturing process.

With its Radeon HD 6000 series product lines fully filled, AMD is already in preparation for the next generation Radeon HD 7000 series (Southern Islands) GPUs and is set to mass produce the GPU in May this year.

No details have been leaked that clarify any specifications of the 7000 series cards.
