Radeon R9 M470 

Released May, 2016
  • 900 MHz
  • 4 GB GDDR5

These chips are still based on Kepler (600-series), but feature more CUDA cores, more memory, a wider memory bus, and faster clockspeeds.

In The News From around the web

The GTX 780M is not quite the mobile equivalent to the desktop GTX 680, but NVIDIA is matching it up against AMD's 8970M GPU and claims that it can run games like Sleeping Dogs, Assassins Creed 3, and Borderlands 2 at Ultra settings (1080p).
NVIDIA is now adding higher-end mobile GPUs to the 700M family with the GTX 760M, GTX 765M, GTX 770M, and GTX 780M.
The 760M and 765M both use 768 CUDA cores, but the 765M is clocked almost 200MHz faster.
The RAM and core are connected via a 256-bit interface.

AMD Q3 2012 Earnings: $157M Loss; 15% of Workforce To Be Cut

by Ryan Smith |
www.anandtech.com
Unfortunately as we’ve seen time and time again with AMD, while their Graphics division can consistently turn a small profit, at only 1/3rd the revenue of their Computing Solutions division it’s not nearly large enough to offset the losses AMD has run there.
In Q3 of 2011 Llano was the biggest factor in AMD turning a profit, but a year later those chips have been superseded by AMD’s new Trinity APU.
