The first AMD Polaris Refresh graphics card has appeared on 3DMark’s database (Via Overclock3D) and showing that it rocks the same specifications as the card it will be replacing. The card in question is the Radeon RX 560X and features the Polaris 21 GPU which feature nominal clock speed bumps and efficiency improvements.
Yesterday, we had covered an interesting section on AMD’s official website which was dedicated to the Radeon RX 500X series of graphics cards. These graphics cards have not been officially announced yet but it looks like they will be launching soon as an annual refresh to AMD’s graphics lineup. From the looks of it, the new family will be the third to feature the Polaris architecture that has been used in the Radeon RX 400 and Radeon RX 500 (Non-X) series.
So nothing new from AMD this year apparently while nVidia is primed to march on with new architecture .Let us all pray it's not a welcome back to the dark ages of AMD flailing against nVidia with the X100-HD 3000
They may not be for retail sale after all, and could just be the equivalent of the HD 8000 series, OEM only: AMD rebranded Radeon RX 500X cards: identical to 500 series
The RX 500X series the same RX 500 series cards that AMD will now be giving to system builders, OEMs, and mobile platforms. AMD is simply refreshing the brand for OEMs and notebooks.
