Earlier I have made a post on the expected specifications of AMD Radeon HD 8000 series cards, which is a pure prediction based on previous releases from AMD. But this time, a Spanish website, Bitdreams reveals a specification sheet of AMD HD 8000 series graphic cards.
We know that HD 7970 has 4.32 billion transistors and 2048 stream processors, which is increased up to 20 % in HD 8970 graphics card. According to the leaked specs, HD 8970 has 5.1 billion and 2560 stream processors. Also ROPs count is increased by 50 %, to 48 ROPs.
Core clock speed is set at 1050 MHz. Effective memory clock is set at 6000MHz.
Mid- Range Cards
Interestingly, the leaked specs sheet show that AMD has concentrated much on lower end graphics cards.
