>If the Radeon RX 490 is based on the Vega 10, then it could feature 4,096 stream processors based on the "Vega" architecture, 256 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 4096-bit HBM2 memory interface, holding 8 GB or 16 GB of memory, with a memory bandwidth of 512 GB/s. If instead it is a dual-GPU card based on Polaris 10, then you could be looking at 2x 2,304 stream processors, and 16 GB of GDDR5 memory across two 256-bit wide memory interfaces

The card isn't even overhypped, probably a bi-poolaris

Dear AMD,
please make this an actual High-end card.


>> No.57687842

Dear anon,
Due to a marketing strategy, we have decided to launch our VEGA series products in a distinguished manner to our Polaris series. As such, we will release a limited production run of Dual-Polaris cards under the 490 moniker, and release our Vega series and later under the RX 5XX series. This will ensure our future customers know that there is a large gap between the power and premium of these devices. As such, we hope you stay tuned for Q1 of 2017. We have every intention of releasing powerful products, but we need to do it in the right way!

Thanks for sticking with us!

they need to stop using cheap ass plastic for their gpu and start using aluminum like nvidia on their founder's card. the resale value is tremendous when the card is made of aluminum instead of plastic....

>> No.57688345

It you package a turd with aluminum, it's still a turd.
I'm all for them using high quality components but please release an actual high performance card first

>> No.57688378

HBM was 512GB/s, isn't HBM2 supposed to be 1TB/s?

Overclocked HBM is faster than HBM2? HAHAHA

>> No.57688400

There is no dual Ellesmere die GPU coming. This was a fabricated currytech clickbait rumor.

They're regurgitating specs listed off some random Videocardz "leak" that had tons of obvious misinformation in it.
HBM 2 has twice the data rate of first gen HBM.

>HBM 2 has twice the data rate of first gen HBM
Not according to the op :^)

>> No.57688543

If Vega was that close there would be more leaks.
Maybe announcement at CES and release a couple weeks after.

>> No.57688576

Pretty sure: Zen > March - May, Vega > June - July.

>> No.57689160

I could see a dual Ellesmere die if they stick it on an interposer. That way the rest of the computer sees it as a single chip. Then they pair it with GDDR5x and you have a 490.

I don't think that's what they will do, but they might. With the Fury they got some experience with the interposer, and they have been making MCM Opterons for years. If they use some of the interconnect knowledge from their MCM experience and perhaps combine it with an interposer they could do it. It's technically feasible, but I don't know that it would be worth it to them as anything but a proof of concept writ large.

Will it suffer from the PCI passthrough reset issue?

>> No.57689333

please no every one of their dual gpu's have been absolutely horseshit.

theres a reason nvidia stopped making dual gpu's

Yeah right, no one releases a card in december

Wow AMD might release something thats barely on par with my 1080, but with shitty drivers, double the power usage, no openGL support, debilitating issues caused by poor engineering like deep fried motherboards, and of course MOAR VRAM, cuz AMD Pajeets love big numbers that dont mean shit.

>> No.57689807

Considering how many people use AMD's GPUs as space heaters its a good time frame for them

India is in the Southern hemisphere though, so it may be a problem for their main userbase.

>> No.57690006

You can tell GPU releases are near because the amount of Nvidia shitposters is going up.
