AMD has thrown itself into reverse, as over the weekend some noise was made that the company wouldn't release its Radeon HD 8000 series cards until the end of this year or beginning of next. Now, however, AMD has issued a statement it'll "certainly" have new GPUs this year with more information arriving later this week. That is certainly good news for everyone wanting to see what the HD 8000 series brings, especially if they've been holding out as long as possible for their next upgrade. The reason AMD is wanting to clarify things later this week is because the report over the weekend was taken out of context, not to mention translation. If you're so inclined you can check out the report here, though hopefully your Japanese is clearer than the Google Translate version.
