Mac Drivers indicate that AMD is working on some new GPUs that could be coming out soon. Here we have leaks regarding the AMD Polaris 12, Polaris 10 XT2 as well as Vega 10 GPUs. The interesting thing is that we have never heard about these GPUs except Vega 10 that will be coming in 2017.

According to the naming scheme, AMD Polaris 12 means that it was designed after AMD Polaris 11. It does not mean that it will be more powerful as AMD Polaris 10 is better than Polaris 11. It simply means that it was designed later on. This could also mean that there are more mainstream GPUs coming our way from AMD. I speculate that these will be mainstream GPUs as the high-end, enthusiast GPUs will feature Vega 10.

We also found Polaris 10 XT2 in the leaks. This will be a revised version of Polaris 10. This means that we could be getting an RX 485 and RX 475 later on. This would make sense and it is not like AMD has not done something like this in the past. Note that these will not be dual GPUs.

Vega 10 will be the new architecture featured in high-end GPUs coming out next year. GPUs featuring this architecture will have up to 4096 stream processors. The GPUs can have 24 TFLOPs of half-precision and 12 TFLOPs of single precision compute performance. Vega 10 will also feature 16 GB of HBM2. This will need a TDP of 225W.

It is interesting to note that AMD Polaris 12 and Polaris 10 XT2 are coming so close to Vega 10. It is likely that Vega 10 will occupy the top while AMD Polaris 12 and Polaris XT2 will be mainstream cards. Keep in mind that these are leaks and speculations, take all of this with a grain of salt. If this does come true then remember where you heard it first.
