Catalyst 8.5 driver suggests new GPUs

Deep inside the ATI driver

A few smart folk from enthusiast websites around the Web took time to analyze the latest ATI Catalyst 8.5 drivers from AMD and managed to find out some interesting information regarding possible upcoming GPU parts.


The driver internals mention ATI Radeon HD 3410, ATI Radeon HD 3550, ATI Radeon HD 3730 and Sapphire Radeon HD 3750. Here is how the information looks inside the actual driver file:


ATI Radeon HD 3410" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_94C3&SUBSYS_30001458


ATI Radeon HD 3550 " = ati2mtag_RV610, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_95C5&SUBSYS_3001148C


ATI Radeon HD 3730" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9598&SUBSYS_3000148C


Sapphire Radeon HD 3750" = ati2mtag_RV630, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9598&SUBSYS_3001174B


We haven't heard anything from AMD about these parts but if they are coding for them in the 8.5 graphics driver, they probably won't be too far away from being released.
