More leaks on AMD RX 500 series

Specifications are online

AMD
Thanks to the latest leak from Benchlife, AMD's RX 500 series specifications are now online. According to Benchlife, AMD will be moving from GlobalFoundries 14nm LPE (Low Power Early) to 14nm LPP (Low Power Plus), although at this time we haven't any proof that AMMD didn't run 14nm LPP on the original Polaris chips.


If this rumor is true, AMD might be able to increase the performance of their Polaris based cards, while also reducing the power consumption. This new process might be good enough for 15% higher clock speeds and 15% lower power consumption. These changes could help AMD provide their Polaris based cards with a very much needed increase in performance. If there would be no change on the silicon or the architecture at all the RX 500 series cards would be exactly the same like the RX 400 cards - in a nutshell a cheap rebrand.

Below we’ve added the alleged specifications for the upcoming AMD RX 500 series GPUs. The range goes from their RX 550 up to the Polaris 20 and 21. The code name of the latter appears to have been changed from Polaris 10 and 11.

Right now it is still not clear how high clock speeds will be on in the case of the AMD's RX 500 series cards. Nevertheless it looks like almost certain that the new AMD cards will come with higher boost clock speeds as well as higher speed memory clocks. At the moment all the clock speeds are unconfirmed, therefore the values below are to be taken with a grain of salt. So far it looks like the AMD RX 500 series graphics cards are going to be released in mid-April.
