AMD Polaris 30 To Be Based On 12 nm, Radeon RX 680 Releasing Next Month

With Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 out in the market, gamers are looking at AMD to roll out its next-gen GPUs. Following a string of rumors, another report has made its way on the internet suggesting that AMD Polaris 30 will be based on 12 nm process.

The report comes from Chiphell who claims that AMD Polaris 30 will be based on the 12 nm process node and these AMD Polaris 30 GPUs will be out as soon as next month ahead of AMD Vega 20 which will be based on the 7 nm process node.

The report suggests that AMD Polaris 30 will see 15% performance boost over AMD RX 500 series. While it isn’t confirmed but reportedly Radeon RX 680 will be the first GPU based on the AMD Polaris 30.

Aside from the GPUs, AMD will also be bringing its 2nd-gen Raven Ridge APUs in late 2018. According to the report, AMD has confirmed during Hot Chips 30 that 2nd-gen Raven Ridge APUs will launch by the end of 2018.

These 2nd-gen Raven Ridge APUs will also be based on the 12 nm node process. These 2nd-gen Raven Ridge APUs will reportedly be available for laptops and will be available under the model Ryzen 7 2800H.

The Ryzen 7 2800H is expected to feature 4 cores, 8 threads, 3.35 GHz base clock, 3.8GHz boost clock, 4 MB L3 cache with Vega 11 integrated graphics processor.

While AMD is already giving Intel a tough time with its Ryzen CPUs but, Intel itself isn’t helping itself with its CPU shortages. Not only that, 1/3 of PCs will be powered by Ryzen CPUs by 2019.

Furthermore, a leak has made its way on the internet revealing AMD will be bringing Ryzen 2800X with 10 cores and will be a direct competitor to Intel’s Core i9 CPUs.

The leak reveals the benchmark results for the alleged AMD Ryzen 2800X that will feature 10 cores and 20 threads. Speculations have been making rounds on the internet that AMD hold off the release of its 2800X CPU to see what Intel brings to the table.
