Don’t Expect To See Radeon’s HD 8000 Series Anytime Soon

For the past few years graphics cards have been updated and released constantly. Just when you think you have the best graphics card on the market it ends up getting blown out of the water by the next generation. Really, it’s been a little frustrating (not to mention hard on the wallet) for those people who demand to have the best out on the market.

Well it looks like it might have all finally come to a head, at least for the time being. AMD announced yesterday that instead of releasing the HD 8000 series of their graphics cards the company will instead be sticking with their highly successful HD 7000 series for most of the rest of the year.

The question remains, however, “What will Nvidia do?” After all, if they have a new line of cards ready for release they might just go ahead and release it, and corner the “latest and greatest” market for themselves. But what if they decide to hang back themselves? It could probably save them some money for a bit by getting a bit more use out of the GTX 600 series, and maybe develop the GTX 700 series to be even bigger and badder than what they had originally planned for. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
