The event is being held at London – curiously also the codename for the Radeon HD 7000M notebook – rumoured to be announced in December. Surely, that is not a co-incidence, and we could see the Radeon HD 7000M series being announced on December 5th, with notebooks featuring HD 7000M GPUs shipping in Q1 2012. Of course, it is standard procedure to announce mobile GPUs well before notebooks hit the market. 

As for the desktop market, several reports and sources suggest the first HD 7000 GPUs will release around CES 2012 time, i.e. second week of January. Till then, we can look forward to some concrete information following the December 5th London event.
