AMD announces Radeon HD 8000M GPU lineup

AMD have officially announced details of the first mobile GPUs in the Radeon HD 8000M series, the first of which are due in Q1 2013. Following the success of the HD 7000/7000M GPUs and the GCN architecture, the new SKUs will be built on the second generation GCN architecture, with many enhancements in both performance and power saving features.

AMD's second generation Graphics Core Next architecture for the mobile market is said to show a performance increase of at least 20% in most of the applications tested, compared to equivalent SKUs from the Radeon HD 7000M series. This is combined with improved power saving features, including the ability to seamlessly switch between a discrete GPU and an IGP, determined according to current requirements. Additionally, when only part of a GPU is being used, the unneeded GPU cores are powered off, further aiding in power management and battery longevity.
