The Northern Islands series is a family of GPUs developed by Advanced Micro Devices for its Radeon line, based on the 40 nm process. Starting with this family, the former ATI brand was officially discontinued in favor of making a correlation between the graphics products and the AMD branding for computing platforms. Therefore, the AMD brand was used as the replacement. The logo for graphics products and technologies also received a minor makeover. The original design was for 32 nm, but TSMC cancelled its 32 nm process in favor of 28 nm development. AMD was forced to adapt its designs as second generation 40 nm products. Even before canceling 32 nm process, TSMC priced their 32 nm process higher than 40 nm. AMD calculated that for mid-range chips, the new VLIW4 architecture, would not be as cost effective as an updated VLIW5 on 40 more
