AMD today announced the release of the Radeon HD 7950 graphics card, built on the latest AMD 28nm Radeon HD7950 "Tahiti PRO" GPU with PCI Express Gen 3 support.

The card is powered by 2x 6-pin power supply pins and has a max power consumption of 200W. Back to the front of the card the is a single DL-DVI port, along with an HDMI port and 2 miniDP ports all along a single slot.

Cape Verde is expected to feature 896 SP over 14 CUs and 56 TMU, with a core frequency of 900 MHz in the HD 7770 SKU. HD 7750 will come with 1 CU disabled for a total of 832 SP and 52 TMU. The Cape Verde die will also feature a 128-bit interface.

The "Pitcairn" GPUs are expectde to appear sometime in March, with the Radeon HD 7850 and HD 7870. Pitcairn will feature 1408 SP/22 CU/ 88 TMU.
