Advanced Micro Devices on Wednesday said it would unveil its next-generation graphics processing unit at the AMD GPU ‘14 Tech Day event on Wednesday, September 25, 2013, next week. The company did not reveal whether it plans to unleash an all-new product family scheduled to arrive in 2014, or just the flagship GPU due to arrive in Q4 2013.
A real-time video webcast of the showcase can be accessed on the Investor Relations home page: ir.amd.com. A replay of the webcast can be accessed approximately one hour after the conclusion of the live event and will be available for 30 days after the event. Additionally, viewers may access the webcast on the AMD Gaming Facebook page and AMD’s YouTube channel. A replay of the webcast can also be accessed on AMD’s YouTube channel.
A highly-ranking representative from graphics products group of Advanced Micro Devices recently confirmed that the new-generation graphics products from the company are coming next quarter. The executive also said that the new graphics boards will not target ultra-high-end market segment and will therefore not cost $999, like some existing offerings on the market. It is logical to expect the new flagship AMD Radeon graphics card to cost up to $649.
It is noteworthy that despite of the fact that the next-generation products from AMD are several weeks away from formal announcements, nothing particular is known about them. Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD’s graphics business unit, recently revealed that the chip would be made using 28nm process technology and will be 30% smaller than Nvidia Corp.’s GK110, which points to around 385mm2 die size and around 5 billion of transistors. While he did not reveal actual performance numbers he implied that efficiency of the new Radeon graphics processing unit will be higher than that of Nvidia Kepler-based GK110.

AMD is going to clean sweep nvidia
1. volcanic island will support DX 11.2 on harware level while kepler supports DX11 on hardware level and DX11.1 via software tricks.
2. volcanic island is crafted for next gen gaming so who still buy kepler for gaming is ..........*****
3.volcanic island will support discreet gpu HSA(which is still in future roadmap of intel and nvidia)-
single address space- cpu and gpu will share data without moving data.
coherency- cpu and gpu work on same data without stopping other one.
but i am not sure that, will amd give discreet gpu HSA support on intel cpu? coz as far as i know amd HSA uses a virtual ISA which is compatible for all avilable cpu's including ARM.
this is a true breakthrough and nvidia is in deep hole till q2 2014(maxwell)
finally AMD is going to enjoy limelight for coming 6-8 months.

Although you are right you are sounding a lot like a fanboy... Calm down.

i know that buddy but if nvidia launch maxwell first i celebrate for nvidia but nvidia is busy with their so called shield console(no one wants that just buy nexus7 it also run all games) and finding place in smartphone for tegra4 nd wow they got chineese brand xiaomi .....such a huge success.
nd about my fanboyism i always said in cpu alone intel is way better than amd ,,and in performance per watt amd even can't stand in front of intel.

I don't think we'll get to see HSA on Intel. Intel has to be part of HSA consortium to get the right to implement HSA.
Not that HSA interests Intel at this point. Intel is focused doing what others do when improving CISC performance; more specialized instructions (SSE families, AVX, AVX2, FMA, etc).

AMD GPU is bullshit, they know this, and must include free games to sell it. AMD is unable to be innovative or making good products. Instead, they make much noise about 'Intel and NV are bad !!!'. Poor innovation.
