As many of you know AMD’s next generation Volcanic Islands series of GPUs are reported to make their debut before the end of the year. Many people are very anxious to replace their year old HD 7000 series hardware. We have heard reports that the first chip to debut in the Volcanic Islands series will be the Hawaii GPU which will be the flagship. Sweclockers is reporting that while the Hawaii GPU will be the flagship card, it may not arrive first, but instead would makes its debut with AMD’s FirePro Professional cards.
The current FirePro series made its debut last August and the latest dual-chip S10000 arrived in November. SweClockers report says that AMD might release or paper launch the new Hawaii GPU based FirePro cards in September, but that does not rule out the possibility of the Radeon Cards to still be released this year.
