It seems that the version of Catalyst 11.7 was containing some codenames for some of the new graphics cards that AMD/ATI is going to launch around Q3/Q4 this year.
These codenames are New Zealand, Tahiti, Thames and Lombok.
Here is a summary of the graphics cards: Tahiti: It seems that this is going to be the new high-end GPU that will come in 2 variants, Tahiti Pro and Tahiti XT.
New Zealand: This one is most probably ending up as the Dual-GPU graphics card with two Tahiti’s
Thames: Thames could either be a new performance chip or a new mobile chip.
Lombok: Not sure! But it could be the successor of the Bart’s chip, but it is NOT confirmed yet, even though, it will end up with at least 3 different versions. As seen before, I am pretty sure that AMD will be able to launch these 28nm parts before NVIDIA, and I am really excited to see what performance these babies can punch out! www.WishoffNews.com www.WishoffNews.blogspot.com
