AMD will not be taking any chances against NVIDIA's 55nm GT200 refresh, according to this report from HARDSPELL.
Whilst it was suggested that the Sunnyvale, CA based company planned to unleash its next-generation RV870 solution in Q1 2009, it is now claimed that a refresh of the RV770 GPU shall fill the void and, at the same time, carry AMD's torch against NVIDIA's GT206.
Details are scarce, yet it is believed, that the RV790 will feature the same manufacturing technology as today's RV770, whilst boasting a significant increase in clock speeds and SCP.
