History
Predecessor Radeon HD 7000 series
Successor Radeon R5/R7/R9 200 series

The HD 8000 series is a family of computer GPUs developed by AMD. AMD was initially rumored to release the family in the second quarter of 2013,[1][2][3] with the cards manufactured on a 28 nm process and making use of the improved Graphics Core Next architecture.[4] 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]

The Radeon HD 8000 series marked AMD's shift from VLIW (TeraScale) to RISC/SIMD architecture (Graphics Core Next). The newer, more powerful cards were equipped with GCN cores, the less powerful ones with older TeraScale2/3 cores, see table below. GCN desktop cards were code-named Southern Islands, while mobile ones were code-named Solar System.

Multi-monitor support[edit]

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.[5]

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.
