    Gamers and video graphics enthusiasts should be excited about recent news that has been appearing about the AMD HD 7000 series of video cards, which as of now, still remain a mystery. The recent reports show photographs of the AMD Radeon HD 7900 “Tahiti” prototype, which would include 12 different memory chips, 384-bit memory, and 32-bit GDDR5. As with all speculative rumors, no one can be sure what the HD 7900 will have to offer to retail customers upon release, but the images of the prototype card look realistic. With any estimation, the HD 7900 series will be large cards: nearly 10” in length. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) provides semiconductors for NVIDIA, AMD, Qualcomm, and maybe even Apple. They announced in October that they were ready to roll out 28 nanometer technology. This will almost assuredly allow embedded video graphics in devices such as SmartPhones and tablets to become even more powerful, while utilizing less space and, likely, less energy. Of course, this process of miniaturization has been on-going, and will extend to the desktop realm as well. The AMD HD 7000 series is suggested to run on 28nm “Southern Island” GPUs. This next generation of video graphics cards will be important for more multimedia intensive applications, work projects, and games and the release of such new products will likely drive the price of existing video cards down to a more affordable level.
