Multiple leaked images showing the upcoming Radeon RX 570 and RX 580 graphics cards from AMD have cropped up online courtesy of the folks at VideoCardz. Both the cards are expected to be launched on the 18th of April.
From the leaked pictures, it looks like the Radeon RX 570 will be using the same PCB as the current Radeon RX 480 and RX 470 series cards. The RX 570 is based on AMD’s ‘Polaris 10’ silicon manufactured on a 14nm FinFET process, which allows for higher clock speeds as well as greater efficiency when compared to the RX 400 series cards. While the Radeon RX 570 features the same 2048 stream processors as its predecessor, it boasts a higher 1244 MHz boost clock. The memory too is clocked slightly higher at 7.00 GHz. Despite the higher clocks, the Radeon RX 570 will draw power using a single 6-pin PCIe power connector.
The Radeon RX 580 on the other hand seems to have a new board design and includes an 8-pin power connector. Just like its predecessor, the Radeon RX 580 will feature 2304 stream processors, 144 Texture Mapping Units (TMUs), and 32 Raster Operation Units (ROPs). The boost clock on the other hand will jump from 1266 MHz on the RX 480 to 1340 MHz. The memory clock will remain unchanged at 8.00 GHz.
