AMD announces GPU Radeon HD 7970, a possible candidate to equip future Macs Pro – if they exist

Time to refresh the memory: at the beginning of the month we commented on some supporting evidence for AMD graphics cards codenamed Tahiti, manufactured by 28 nanometer processes, found in OS X 10.7.3 beta. Well, then, it’s good that the next version of Lion even brings this support, because AMD has just revealed its new card, the Radeon HD 7970.

As mentioned above, it is produced by a 28 nanometer process and offers up to 150% performance improvement per square millimeter, in addition to being compatible with PCI Express 3.0 and AMD CrossFire. It will be available from January 9th, costing $ 550 a time, matching the arrival of new Xeon processors to equip a Mac Pro.

If you are interested in all the technical details of the Radeon HD 7970, a good request is to take a look at the extensive review of AnandTech.
