A juicy new rumor points to AMD launching its upcoming Radeon RX 590 graphics card in time for the holiday shopping season, and specifically on November 15, which is two and a half weeks from today. Previous leaks and rumors suggest it will arrive with a 12-nanometer Polaris 30 GPU underneath the hood and offer strong mid-range performance. While nothing is official, we're fairly convinced the new Polaris model exists. There is enough evidence to sway us in that direction, including a leaked press render from PowerColor for an upcoming Red Devil variant. ASUS is also rumored to be prepping a Radeon RX 590 graphics card under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) and Strix branding (ROG-STRIX-RX590-8G-GAMING).... Read more...
Even though Vega is out and Navi is around bend, AMD may not be finished tapping its Polaris GPU architecture for a new round of graphics cards. Just poke your head in the rumor mill and you'll hear rumblings of Polaris 30. We have only vague references to go on, but Polaris 30 is said to be shipping sometime soon. Let's back up a moment and look at the existing Polaris architectures. For anyone who hasn't been following the codenames, the Radeon RX 480 and Radeon RX 470 are Polaris 10 parts, Polaris 10 is built on a 14-nanometer FinFET Low Power Plus processor, otherwise designated as 14LPP. Polaris 10 features 2,304 stream processors and 36 compute units (CUs), and supports up to 8GB of GDDR5... Read more...
Hot on the heels of NVIDIA releasing its GeForce RTX series based on Turing with fancy-pants real-time ray tracing and AI technologies embedded within, AMD is set to launch...another Polaris part? So it goes, if the rumor mill is to believed, with AMD said to be prepping a new graphics card based on a 12-nanometer tweak of Polaris. It's been a rough year for AMD in terms of graphics development. Vega is not the Pascal killer that many people hoped it would be, and by extension, it's not on the same level as Turing (even without real-time ray tracing and DLSS). AMD also lost multiple members of its graphics division, including head honcho Raja Koduri and marketing maven Chris Hook, both of which... Read more...
