At the IT Supply Chain conference, AMD CEO Rory Read confirmed that AMD has begun shipping 28nm GPUs, fabbed at TSMC, for revenue. This should come as no surprise, as the release for Radeon HD 7900 – on 9th January 2012 – is just over 3 weeks away.

CEO Rory Read stated, "We are ramping 28nm [products] with TSMC in Taiwan and shipping the products here and now. We are very excited about the products". 

At this point we have some information about the Radeon HD 7900 series – some concrete, some speculation. We have seen pictures, speculatory specifications, pricing rumours and a purported specifications slide leak. However, as usual, little information has been publicly announced by AMD.
