Most of the secrets surrounding AMD's latest series of mobile graphics chips have been known for a while now, but that didn't stop the company from making everything official today. Intended for traditional laptops and ultrathins alike, the Radeon HD 8000M series supports DirectX 11.1 and stands as the first of the company's mobile GPUs to incorporate the AMD Graphics Core Next architecture. The lineup consists of the Radeon HD 8800M, HD 8700M, HD 8600M and HD 8500M. The chip manufacturer announced that the Radeon HD 8000M series has already been incorporated into products from ASUS and Samsung -- no surprises here -- and also let it be known that we can expect similar offerings from Dell, Lenovo and other OEMs in short order.
Rounding out the GPU announcements from AMD, the company also took the opportunity to crow that its Radeon HD 8000 series for desktops is now en route to OEM partners. What's more, we can expect desktop rigs with this technology to begin arriving on store shelves later this month. If you're thirsty for more information, feel free to soak up the PR after the break.
