AMD Radeon HD 7970M to launch on April 24
AMD have recently announced their HD7000M mobile GPU line-up, to be launched on April 24. Mobile line-up uses the same GPU architecture as the desktop one, but renamed for the mobile market. The top-end SKU will be the HD 7970M, part of the HD 7900 line-up, codenamed Thames and using the Pitcairn GPU (HD 7800 series).
Next in line are the Lombok series (HD 7800M), a rename of Cape Verde (HD 7700). AMD "Trinity" APUs will use Radeon 7600M and 7700M GPUs. AMD already has a number of design awards for Trinity APUs, and Trinity / Lombok combination. This doesn't guarantee them too many awards though, as NVidia also had a number of design wins with Kepler + Ivy Bridge, meaning the competition between the two big names will remain a tough battle.
We will know after Tuesday, when reviews are made public, whether Thames and Lombok products can outperform NVidia's mobile line-up.
