According to a report written by Martin Fischer from Heise.de, which is pretty much what we have been hearing and able to confirm with our sources, AMD is planing to launch its Radeon RX 500 series in early April. While this would usually sound interesting, the entire lineup will be compromised from RX 400 series rebrands, but with slightly higher GPU clocks.
According to the report, Polaris 10-based RX 580 and RX 570, should be launching on April 4th, while Radeon RX 560 and RX 550, based on Polaris 11, should launch on April 11. According to a similar report from Videocardz.com, the Radeon RX 550 could be based on a new Polaris 12 chip, while the rebranded Radeon RX 560 could get the fully-enabled Polaris 11 GPU with 1024 Stream Processors, similar to RX 460 seen in China.
The big question is the newly named Radeon RX Vega, which, according to AMD, should be available in the first half of this year, so the most likely launch is at the Computex 2017 show which starts on May 30th. It appears that the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti will have to wait to get its competitor as simple rebrands just won't be enough.
