| Posted: Dec 18, 2008 7:22 am

It looks like AMD has just successfully taped out its first 40nm GPU which it calls RV740. Though this is only a mid-range chip which is said to take over where RV730 leaves off, it's a big milestone for AMD and they plan to gain some experience from it in order to better design their next-gen RV870 chip, also referred to as Lil' Dragon.
