AMD will present its upcoming Radeon HD 6000 series, and the “Northern
Islands” architecture, at the AMD Technical Forum and Exhibition (TFE
2010) in Taipei tomorrow, 19th October. The first presentation will be
by the General Manager of AMD’s GPU Division, Matt Skymer, with a
briefing on “Northern Islands Graphics Technology”. Later, a
presentation on the AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series Marketing will be held by
Casey Gotcher. The Product Position of Radeon HD 6000 series cards,
branding and demand generation will be discussed. In addition, AMD’s APP
(Accelerated Parallel Processing) Software will be introduced. Finally, there will be a Northern Islands Architecture “Deep Dive” by the GPU Division CTO, Eric Demers.

TFE 2010 is primarily an academia conference, however, and AMD’s various technology partners will discuss the latest innovations in CPU/GPU tech. However, TFE will be the first time AMD will publicly talk about the Radeon HD 6000 in detail, just 3 days prior to launch, and will no doubt be the talking point of TFE. A Fusion Technology Preview is another highlight.

With contradictory rumours and confusion still at large in the rumour mill, news from TFE 2010 will iron out some of the details till the official release and NDA expiration on 22nd October.

The complete TFE 2010 Agenda is available at AMD’s website.
