More and more rumors are spreading in the air that AMD may introduce their Radeon HD 9000 as early as in October. The company might skip the 8000 series since they have already sold out Radeon HD 8000 branded parts to OEM. The first Radeon HD 9000 parts we are looking forward to are Curaco and Hainan.
I has been widely reported that AMD will launch their next generation “Volcanic Islands” graphics cards in the 4th quarter of 2013. The 4th quarter of 2013 also happens to be when Battlefield 4 will be released, more specifically October 29th. AMD has purchased the rights to the game for marketing purposes, so it makes sense that AMD would launch their new cards right around the same time the game is released.
