Next generation video cards from AMD might be just around the corner.
The neat thing about the never ending GPU wars is that there's always something newer and faster on the horizon. AMD and Nvidia never have time to rest on their laurels, instead playing a constant game of leapfrog where the biggest winners are gamers. In keeping with that theme, a Chinese language website is reporting that AMD is gearing up to launch its Radeon HD 8000 Series of graphics cards sometime in the third quarter of this year.
Yesterday we told you about a pair of Radeon HD 8000 series graphics cards set to storm the market at competitive price points, with the Radeon HD 8870 expected to rival Nvidia's GeForce GTX 680 for $279, and the 8850 taking on the GTX 670 for $199 (both are expected MSRPs). What about the high end? Fear not, AMD is working on an enthusiast grade 8000 series part, as well.
