Default Re: ATi 7000 series delayed till Q1 2012

And apparently 7800/7700 will be GCN too and not Northern Islands 28nm VLIW like it was rumored at first..

Ok its Semiaccurate, but still interesting news
Remember that we previously reported the latest low-end discrete GPU offerings from AMD will be re-brands? Well, it looks like the low-end desktop offerings will get the same treatment. In a series of documents detailing the next low-end discrete GPU offerings from AMD, all of them indicate that AMD will not make a low-end part based on the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, but instead they are all re-brands of the legacy VLIW5 products, and are targeted, at the time of publication, to OEMs only.
