On Monday, AMD unveiled details about their new mobile GPUs, the 8000M Series, codename Solar System. Built on the same GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture as the last series, these cards will support DirectX 11.1 and the Enduro Technology.  http://benchmark3d.com/amd-unveiled-radeon-hd8000m-gpus-details

My God....Enduro. Let's hope AMD and the OEM suppliers learned their lesson from the first time around.

Something's not right here...The HD 8800M has 640 USP's and 992 GFLOPS of power. The HD 7870M has 640 USP's and 1024 GFLOPS of power. The HD 8800M is clocked slower than the HD 7870M by 100mhz. Same USP count, not a significant difference in power even if clocked up to 7870M clocks...

AnanTech shares my feelings that it is just a rebrand as well

Interesting AMD provided chart as well



About what is to be expected from GCN gen 2 for the 8500/8600/8700 and most likely the bulk of the desktop cards as well, 25-45% improvement range.
