The chip manufacturer AMD has just announced the make-up of the first Graphic Processor Unit (GPU) that overcomes the 1 GHz barrier, all this throughout the launch of the Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition y Radeon HD 7750 cards.
Both cards has been constructed through the 28 nanometers technology – as well as its predecessors HD 7970, HD 7770 y 7750– and are based on the Graphics Core Next architecture (GCN), where the significance is focused on the computing acceleration as well as on the graphics, when the earlier generations where only focused on one of these actions.
The stronger one is Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition, which one is aimed to the gamer community and includes the PCI Express 3.0 slot. Moreover, takes in the AMD PowerTune technologies, that optimize the relationship between rendering and refrigeration necessities; and AMD Eyefinity 2.0 that allows a 6 monitor connection at a 5760×1080 pixel resolution.
“We were the first to reach the 40nm and 28nm, and now we offer the brand new 1GHz GPU. It’s a breakthrough to the graphic industry”, said Matt Skynner, corporative vice-president and general manager of the GPU Company.
Both cards were launched to the market in the United States at a $159 dollar price, aimed to the basic model of Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition, Meanwhile the AMD Radeon HD 7750 1 GB goes from $109 dollar and up.
