At some point in the not-too-distant future, AMD will launch its Radeon RX 500 series graphics cards based on its current generation Polaris GPU architecture (Vega shouldn't be too far behind). In preparation of the impending launch, at least one European online retailer has updated its web store with several listings of both cards, including an ASUS ROG Strix RX 580 Gaming model.
The ASUS ROG Strix RX 580 Gaming (ROG-STRIX-RX580-O8G-GAMING) card is listed on Lambda Tek as having 8GB of what we presume to be GDDR5 memory. And if the listing is accurate, it will have a DVI port, two HDMI ports, and two DisplayPorts. There was no mention of clockspeeds or any other performance-related vitals. The card is priced at £325.22, though that might be a placeholder.
That is the only Radeon RX 500 series card ASUS is planning to release. It takes a bit of digging, but buried in a pull-down menu in a support page for RMA'ing products, ASUS lists several other models. Here is a look at the full lineup::
- ASUS ROG STRIX RX 580 8GB (ROG-STRIX-RX580-8G-GAMING) -
- ASUS ROG STRIX RX 580 8GB OC (ROG-STRIX-RX580-O8G-GAMING)
- ASUS ROG STRIX RX 570 4GB (ROG-STRIX-RX570-4G-GAMING)
- ASUS ROG STRIX RX 570 4GB OC (ROG-STRIX-RX570-O4G-GAMING)
- ASUS RX 550 2GB (RX550-2G)
- ASUS RX 550 4GB (RX550-4G
Like the etailer listing, performance details are at a minimum here—the model numbers only reveal the amount of onboard memory and the fact that ASUS will release a couple of overclocked variants.
