AMD Radeon HD 7750, 7770 GHz Edition hit entry level video

02/15, 12:30am

AMD unveils Radeon HD 7700 series

AMD took its Radeon HD 7000 series to the starter level quickly on Wednesday. The Radeon HD 7750 and 7750 GHz Edition step back in visual processor counts versus the 6700 line, from 720 and 800 cores to 512 and 640 respectively, but make up for it through more than a year's worth of technology. Both the new overall architecture and a shrink to a leaner 28 nanometer building process let the 7750 and 7770 climb to 800MHz and 1GHz core speeds (up from 700MHz and 850MHz).


AMD downplays Thunderbolt, claims it steals video bandwidth

03/01, 6:05pm

AMD tries to talk down Thunderbolt

AMD in a comment hoped to minimize the impact of Intel's Thunderbolt technology. It argued that the 10Gbps bandwidth wasn't necessarily enough for video as a DisplayPort connector could handle up to 17Gbps, limiting what a screen attached in a Thunderbolt chain could manage. Any other devices in the link could further reduce the bandwidth and would rule out multiple displays, conveniently including multi-screen arrays using its own Eyefinity technology.

While each has the speed of a 5850 with a 725MHz primary clock speed and 1GHz GDDR5 memory, the 3,200 stream (effects) processors, 160 texture units and 2GB of memory give it as much performance as two 5850s but in half the space.
