AMD readies component to beat up Nvidia

  • Distributor sources close to AMD Germany say that the company will launch a new graphics product next month.

    Codenamed Bonaire and with a part number of 7790 it is expected to cost around $155.  Performance is likely to be about 3,000 3D Mark Fire Strike.

    Nvidia is preparing a part to compete with it, codenamed 650Ti Boost.  The unit is a 192 bit version of the 650Ti, but distributors are unhappy because it will interfere with 650Ti inventories.  It is likely to cost $180 or so and also scores about 3,000 3D Mark Fire Strike.

    Pre-orders for the Bonaire part are expected to be available towards the end of March.
