AMD Unveils 2011 GPU Roadmap

It’s a little disappointing on some occasions to hear that the launch of the Radeon HD 6900 series would be delayed (via Hardware Canucks), but on the bright side AMD decided to jump the gun and showcase what’s to come in the first quarter of 2011. Although we may see the single GPU part this year, their dual GPU Radeon HD 6990 won’t arrive until well after the new year and also with the inclusion of some new cards that will expand the HD 5700 series (Turks and Calcos).

Something that you may find interesting is that the new line of discrete Mobile Radeon graphics, dubbed the “Vancouver” series, adopt their codenames from known parts of British Columbia, Canada. This includes Blackcomb, Granville, Whistler, Capilano, Seymour and Robson. Cool!
