Board Partners Apparently Not Interested in AMD's Tahiti LE Card
AMD's Radeon HD 7800-based "Tahiti LE" seems to generating not much interest amongst the majority of its board partners, according to TechPowerUp's sources. As it stands, it appears that only a handful of companies are willing to release the upcoming card, which is essentially a stripped-down version of a Radeon HD 7950. Of AMD's numerous AIB partners, only Club 3D, PowerColor, and VTX 3D are said to be in the running to produce the card. AMD's latest 28nm SKU is reported to have a configuration of 1536 stream processors, a clock speed of 925MHz core with a 975 MHz PowerTune boost, 2GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 6000MHz with a 256-bit memory bus. The Tahiti LE could be aimed at NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 660, with AMD's card competitively priced while being faster by around 15%.
