Just spotted this here in news section,
http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.ph...7&postcount=97


Maybe nvidia's GK110 1024?core (~3.8tflops) response?





GCN 2.0:
2304 SPs(96 32 bit ALUs per CU)
192 TMUs(8 TMUs per CU)
48 ROPs(2 ROPs per CU)

2304 * 2 * 1.0GHz => 4.608 tflops


^
The numbers could be fake, but tflops count kinda covers itself

Most liley a 7980 (given the close release and only 1.2x increase). Looks interesting and can't say I'm at all surprised. Would be interesting to see if these overclock aswell. The saphire 1375Mhz model is set to release based on 7970 so if this thing can do 1500Mhz on simple air cooling it'll be a winner.

I just remember I had seen a reference to a product with 2304 SP's a couple of months ago. It could have been a fake product, and this could be recycled fakery. It did appear 'out of place' at the time. In any case it was definitely a HD7000 series product (in the reference I am referring to). Also other information was that Sea Islands is a bit of a jump from the HD7000 series, and its not just a HD7970 with a few extra units on it.

Going by the configuration, if true it would suggest its possibly a full featured chip. By that I mean the HD7970 actually has some units disabled, and likewise the HD7950 even more. It just doesn't make sense otherwise. If this is the case though, it may be harder to find than the HD7970..

Immediately there was speculation of course, that this would be AMD's answer to the supposedly introduced in the near future NVIDIA-Kepler-series in 28-nm manufacturing. In today's CeBIT meeting with AMD, we talked to Product Manager Evan Groenke on these films. Mr. Groenke knew the film already and could not suppress a grin. He described the film as a well-made fake, and said openly, that this does not constitute an official AMD film. Rather, he assumes that this must be a "fun contemporary" was at work, who have seen the previous naming of the new Graphic-core next-products and some simply picked a name for this island venture out.

other than the comments by Groenke, the third footnote (***) firstly has no reference and then points to an image that doesn't exist?

So if the product manager of AMD tell this is not an official slide by AMD and it is fake.. for you it is not ?

I doubt their article will cite Mr. Groenke, if they have not really speak with him.
