PowerColor’s representative in an interview with the Donanim Haber portal informed, that the graphics card Radeon HD 7000 Series will have to wait until the first quarter of next year.

Initially, release date of AMD Radeon HD 7000 graphics cards was in September, but was soon postponed for the fourth quarter of this year. Unfortunately, it appears that the new family of Southern Islands gpu will follow later.

Information was revealed by Elaine Liao, PowerColor director of sales, during an interview for the Turkish portal DonanimHaber. It is worth noting that PowerColor is one of the most important partners of AMD. According to Elaine, the new graphics cards would appear only in the first quarter of next year. This means, therefore, that more or less the same time on the shelves will be hosted both the Radeon HD 7000, and competing models of the GeForce GTX 600th. From the customers perspective this is a very good information, because the two companies will compete with each other, and the best will come out of the buyer.

Liao even suggested in an interview that the Southern Islands gpus will continue to be produced in 40-nanometer process, not only, as it had originally been anticipated, in the 28-nanometer. Admittedly, it’s quite strange information, because AMD some time ago officially confirmed the production of new graphics cards in the lower process. But perhaps it is a model of the Lombok XT Lombok Pro which will use the old architecture VLIW4. Below you can see the entire interview with Elaine Liao from DonanimHaber.
