    AMD Confirmed To Unveil “Volcanic Islands” Hawaii GPU in Hawaii on 25th Septemb

    http://wccftech.com/amd-confirmed-un...#ixzz2bLd1vCcv

    AMD is planning to unveil their latest Volcanic Islands series based Hawaii GPU chip on 25th September. AMD confirmed this report with BrightsideofNews and Semiaccurate who also report that the card would be launched officially in Hawaii.

    AMD Officially Headed To Volcanic Islands – Unveiling Hawaii GPU in Hawaii!
    On 25th September, AMD would publicly showcase their latest Hawaii GPU which is part of their latest Volcanic Islands family, codenames of which were hinted only a few hours ago in HWINFO. The event which would is going to be hosted by AMD in Hawaii would demonstrate the new capabilities and features of the latest Hawaii GPU demonstrating new gaming titles on it such as EA’s Battlefield 4 and possibly more. The Hawaii GPU which would be based on a 28nm process would feature massive architectural updates over the previous generation given the time AMD took to release it. But do note that AMD is only going to announce the Hawaii GPU in late September, actual launch would take place sometime later in Q4 (Possibly October as has been hinted many times before).

    Its no doubt that the Hawaii GPU would tackle the one and only GK110 core from NVIDIA. GK110 stands strong against its competitors from AMD in the HD 7000 series. Both the GeForce GTX Titan and GeForce GTX 780 do well in performance although they do cost alot too. The end point would be what GPU offers more value to consumers. If AMD is going all out to tackle the GK110 with their Hawaii GPU, then they also have to keep the prices under control. Considering AMD’s current flagship HD 7970 was priced $549 at launch, it would be highly unlikely for AMD to choose a lower price range for the new Hawaii GPU. But if they do, then its a clear win for AMD. AMD also just announced a price cut on their HD 7990 down from $1000 US to $699 US, getting ready for the launch of their next generation of cards.

    AMD’s Hawaii / Volcanic Islands Announcement is sure going to be one hell of a thing since fans have been waiting for over a year for AMD to launch a new generation of Radeon cards. It sure sounds good but Semiaccurate has always some extra information for everyone, the site has reported that AMD’s entire top-to-bottom APU lineup including the upcoming Kaveri would be fused with the Volcanic Islands architecture:
