History
Predecessor Radeon HD 7000 Series
Successor Radeon Rx 200 Series

The HD 8000 series is a family of computer GPUs developed by AMD. AMD was initially rumoured to release the family in the second quarter of 2013,[2][3][4] with the cards manufactured on a 28 nm process and making use of the improved Graphics Core Next architecture.[5] However the 8000 series turned out to be an OEM rebadge of the 7000 series (although, Oland[citation needed] is of newer development).

Architecture[edit]

This article is about all products under the Radeon HD 8000 Series brand. These series marked AMD shift from VLIW architectures (TeraScale (microarchitecture)) to RISC/SIMD ones (called Graphics Core Next). The transition wasn't complete, so while the newer more powerful cards were equipped with GCN cores, the less powerful ones were left with older TeraScale2/3 cores. The variations are described in the tables below. GCN desktop cards were code-named Southern Islands, while mobile ones were code-named Solar System.

Multi-monitor support[edit]

Main article: AMD Eyefinity

The AMD Eyefinity-branded on-die display controllers were introduced in September 2009 in the Radeon HD 5000 Series and have been present in all products since.[6]

Video acceleration[edit]

Both Unified Video Decoder (UVD) and Video Coding Engine (VCE) are present on the dies of all products and supported by AMD Catalyst and by the free and open-source graphics device driver#ATI/AMD.
