My System Specs

Smile AMD's 28nm's already shipping!

Well for revenue that is, but still, its a good sign that yields are high and that we can expect GPU's to be out by the end of this year (highly optimistic) or January :)

This is confirmed by AMD's CEO however, theres no disclosure on which chips have been shipped but its most likely something from the 79 series if rumours hold up :D

Full article is here:

On the negative side of things, apparently the 7950's are coming out custom PCB'd straight away, so I'm guessing theres not gonna be any form of lazy PCB work that leads to unlocking to the 7970 again :(

EDIT: Also some good old performance leaks that seem reasonably reliable (remembering that the GCN architecture is still in its infancy so the drivers might not reflect full performance)
