Launch date confirmed for April 18th
AMD Radeon RX 500 series refresh is just around the corner and today we have both the first price leak as well as the confirmation that at least some of these graphics cards will launch on April 18th.
Support for Windows 10 Creators Update
AMD has released its latest Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.4.2 driver, which adds official support for Microsoft's latest Windows 10 Creators Update as well as fixing some bugs.
Probably based on Radeon RX 580 design
AMD is expected to launch its new Radeon RX 500 series of rebrands, and as it appears that there will be plenty of custom versions around, it does not come as a surprise that Powercolor is teasing its new Red Devil graphics card.
Rebrands with a slight twist
Images of AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 570 and RX 580 have leaked online, showing what to expect from these rebranded RX 400 series graphics cards that should launch in April.
New 14nm LPP process and new Polaris 20 GPUs
It appears that AMD's upcoming Radeon 500 series will indeed be based on current Polaris GPU architecture but will also be moving to a new 14nm LPP manufacturing process and bring new Polaris 12, Polaris 20 and Polaris 21 GPUs.
White backplate and not much more
A blurry picture has leaked online showing what should be a reference version of the upcoming AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics card.
A slight delay
According to reports, the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 500 series, which should be based on Polaris GPUs, could be slightly delayed, with the new launch date set for April 18th.
One to have for Ghost Recon: Wildlands
AMD has released its newest Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.3.1 driver which adds game day launch support for Ghost Recon: Wildlands as well as brings a couple of performance improvements and bug fixes.
But will it be too late?
Rumours are starting to come in that Nvidia’s coming Volta will give AMD's Radeon RX Vega a good kicking thanks to Taiwan Semiconductor’s 12 nm fabrication process over Vega's 14 nm.
RX Vega won't be here before late May
According to the newest report, AMD's upcoming RX 500 series will be completely made of RX 400 series rebrands, based on Polaris 10 and Polaris 11, as well as possible new Polaris 12 GPU, while Radeon RX Vega won't launch before late May.
