AMD Radeon RX 580

AMD Radeon RX 580 is the next upcoming GPU from AMD. This will be replacing the previous generation RX 480. But you need not get overhyped regarding the GPUs that will be coming out as they will be based on Polaris 10, they will be a rebrand of RX 400 series.

This is not something unexpected, AMD has done this is the past as well and it looks like that they are going to be doing the same with the RX 500 series GPUs.

But this does not mean that the upcoming GPUs will not have additional power.

It is possible that AMD will be able to enhance the frequencies and make the GPUs more efficient in the process. This means that the GPUs will have a better clock speed but will consume the same amount of power without excessive heating issues occurring.

AMD Radeon RX 580 Specifications

The AMD Radeon RX 580 will be replacing the AMD RX 480 and the following are the expected specifications of the GPU:

  • Clock speed: 1340 MHz
  • Compute performance: 6.17 TFLOPs
  • VRAM: 8GB of GDDR5 at 8Gbps
  • Memory bus: 256-bit
  • Price: $199

Seeing how one of the selling points of AMD RX 480 was getting VR to the masses it is more than likely that the RX 580 will also be VR Ready.

Radeon RX 570 Specifications

The Radeon RX 570 will be an improved version of the RX 470 and the expected specifications of the GPU are as follows:

  • Clock speed: 1244 MHz
  • Compute performance: 5.10 TFLOPs
  • VRAM: 8GB of GDDR5 at 7Gbps
  • Memory bus: 256-bit
  • Price: $149

Radeon RX 560 Specifications

The Radeon RX 560 will be replacing the entry-level RX 460. The expected specifications of the upcoming GPU are as follows:

  • Clock speed: 1287 MHz
  • Compute performance: 2.63 TFLOPs
  • VRAM: 4GB of GDDR5
  • Memory bus: 128-bit
  • Price: $100

The RX 500 series GPUs will enable AMD to have a complete lineup of GPU keeping in mind that AMD Vega will also be coming out later this year. We are waiting to see how well AMD Vega competes against high-end Nvidia GPUs.

Let us know what you think about the upcoming RX 500 series GPUs.
