AMD is yet to announce its next-gen GPUs despite Nvidia already releasing RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti. While AMD isn’t revealing anything but, Radeon RX 590 benchmarks have leaked online.
The leaked Radeon RX 590 benchmarks reveal the GPU performance is somewhere between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1060. The benchmarks were leaked by the 3DMark database and the GPU scored 5,028 in TimeSpy.
According to the leaked Radeon RX 590 benchmarks, the GPU features 1,545MHz of clock speed with 8 GB of VRAM. This indicates that AMD will stick with GDDR5 memory for VRAM.
While it isn’t confirmed but, speculation is that Radeon RX 590 will be based on Polaris 30 architecture. The Polaris 30 architecture itself is based on the 12 nm process node. Seems like AMD is gearing up to compete with the GTX 2060.
Speaking of the AMD GPUs, a report suggests that AMD Arcturus will be the next GPU architecture following Navi. Furthermore, the GPUs based on the Arcturus architecture will be follow up to Polaris 500-series GPUs.
The report reveals that AMD plans to stop using architecture’s real name as a codename and intends to use real codenames. Also, the Arcturus architecture will be based on the 7 nm+ process node.
Aside from the GPUs, AMD is making quite splash in the CPU market. However, officially AMD Zen CPUs don’t have FMA4 support. Turns out, that is just on paper as AMD Zen CPUs do support FMA4 instruction set.
Despite that, the OS still not has access to the FMA4 instruction set in the Zen CPUs. Also, the reason for AMD to eliminate the FMA4 instruction set support is still unknown.
Aside from the rumors, AMD has confirmed 2nd-gen Raven Ridge APUs for late 2018 release. AMD confirmed it during the Hot Chips 30 conference and these APUs will be based on the 12 nm process. Ryzen 7 2800H will probably be the first APU from this series to release.
