AMD sets sights high with 40nm RV870?


Fudzilla has, today, shared some more information pertaining to the RV870 GPU itself.


It is claimed that AMD is striving to its take the bull by its horns, overlook the 45nm option and valiantly, head straight for a 40nm manufacturing process. Interestingly, it is suggested that if AMD pulls this feat off, it may be the first time in history that the size of a GPU manufacturing process, will have surpassed that of a CPU.


With this, the article goes on to suggest that AMD's RV870 will be clocked higher than its predecessor and, will contain significantly more transistors.


However, whilst information regarding architectural advancements is scant, it is alleged that the RV870 may see the light of day, before the RV770 celebrates its first birthday.
