At a special launch event in Australia, AMD shed more light on its upcoming Radeon RX 470 and Radeon RX 460 graphics cards.
The Radeon RX 470, which is aimed at 1080p gaming, will use a similar blower type cooler that is seen on the RX 480. AMD also confirmed that the reference card will arrive with 4GB of GDDR5 memory with a 256-bit interface. However, AMD partners will be allowed to offer 8GB custom cards. Finally, the card has been confirmed to feature 32 Compute Units, which points to a Stream Processor count of 2048.
The more affordable Radeon RX 460 is revealed to have 14 Compute Units, which means a total of 896 Stream Processors. Reference RX 460 cards will ship with 2GB of GDDR5 memory with a 128-bit interface.
At the event, AMD shared its latest GPU roadmap as well, which actually doesn’t show any major changes at all. The high-end ‘Vega’ GPU is still planned to debut sometime next year.
