DisplayPort Cards Coming 2008
AMD has a whole host of new things coming these next two years.
The first is the R700 FireGL graphics cards which will feature the new DisplayPort standard output ports.
|No firm time frame in 2008 was given during the analyst’s day, but with some PC makers like Dell saying they intend to bring DisplayPort to market at the end of 2007 we might assume that means early 2008 for the R700 parts. We can also expect to see the consumer oriented R700 parts launching with DisplayPort in 2008. In addition to DisplayPort, the AMD roadmaps also make mention of Microsoft DirectX 11 compliance next year in their GPU line.|
|The next-generation R7xx series GPU will be DirectX 10+ compliant. AMD plans to manufacturer R7xx on a 55nm fabrication process as well.|
