During its third-quarter financial results call, AMD CEO Dirk Meyer revealed the chipmaker will launch its next-generation graphics cards next week. Based on the codenamed Northern Islands architecture, they are expected to include the Radeon HD 6000-series, with the Radeon HD 6850 and 6870 rumored to arrive on October 22. The cards are expected to be built on the 40nm process.
A new driver release from ATI, Catalyst 10.8, has brought with it 36 codenames of future hardware. The product codenames likely refer to next-generation ATI graphics processors, dubbed Southern Islands but likely to make up the ATI Radeon 6000 series. The codenames are prefixed by NI, which could stand for Northern Islands, a codename used for the next-gen GPUs when they were thought to be based on 40nm architecture rather than 28nm as the upcoming ones are expected to be.

Apple want ads hint at future Watch faces
An Apple job listing for a dedicated clock face team may suggest future fashion-brand partnerships, possibly in time for the updated watchOS updates that are likely to be revealed at this spring's Worldwide Developer Conference. Since the introduction of watchOS 2, there has only been four new watch faces, but three of them were left over from the first release, with only one truly new one -- the co-branded Hermés face exclusive to that edition. There is a rumored March 15 event, but if that takes place it will likely focus on new band options as regards the Apple Watch. http://apple.co/1O1TbTI
