refresh of AMD RX 570 video card with 12nm gpu




Rumor: is coming soon
According to the PConline, between 12 and 15 October, AMD presents a new version of a Radeon GPU with 2048 stream processors, just like the RX 570. The chip would have been made at 12nm instead of 14nm and had higher clock speeds.

The Chinese website bases its publication on sources with video card makers. AMD would call the refresh of the gpu Polaris 30. By making the gpu at 12nm, it would be possible to increase the clock speeds somewhat compared to the current gpu’s made at 14nm. Besides a refresh of the RX 570, there would also be a new version of the RX 580 coming, but that would be announced later in November. Details about the prizes and naming of the new Radeon video cards are still unknown.

According to the rumor it is a refresh of the GPU and there are no changes to the architecture. It would be the second time that AMD comes with an improvement of its Polaris GPU. Since 2016, AMD has been using these chips for its Radeon RX video cards, first in the RX 400 series and a year later in the RX 500 series. The gpu’s of the RX 500 models are clocked slightly higher, but are still made at 14nm. AMD made the step from 14nm to 12nm earlier this year for its second-generation Ryzen processors .

For a new generation of video cards with the new Navi GPU, AMD wants to switch to 7nm. The company has been working on this for some time and showed a prototype of a Vega-gpu at 7nm in June. Such cards will first find their way to servers. Video cards for consumers made on 7nm are expected at the earliest next year.
