According to NordicHardware sources, it's seeming likely that AMD will reveal details of its upcoming Radeon HD 7000 series of graphics cards at an event in London on December 5th. The HD 7000 will be the first series of GPUs from the Radeon line to be manufactured on a 28nm fabrication process.

The devices are expected to be based around a new GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture, with a new focus on GPGPU computing, that, as an architecture, looks to be much closer to the NVIDIA CUDA-core concept than those found on previous AMD devices.

It's looking to be an exciting event, with a new core architecture, possibilities of XDR2 memory instead of GDDR5, the next generation of the very same memory used by the Playstation 3's Cell processor and, perhaps PCI-Express 3 support; there's reason to be on edge as we discover just how far or, how little, the HD 7000 has progressed. We are also hoping for some insights into release time-frames, as various rumours have been floating around relating to release delays and push-backs.

Making you avoid spending money surely? They're going to reveal some details that will make you want to wait for the new cards next year, not buy something now!

I don't think this is the case here, just to wet the appetite of the press.
