AMD’s upcoming graphics cards: the Radeon R7 470 and R9 480 are rumoured to be ready for their first ever debut during the upcoming Computex 2016 event. Both graphics cards will be equipped AMD’s highly anticipated Polaris 11 and Polaris 10 GPUs respectively. Interestingly, the Polaris 11 GPU is also known as “Baffin”, while the Polaris 10 GPU is known to some as “Ellesmere”.
In addition to rumours about the unveiling date for both the Radeon R7 470 and R9 480, some of AMD’s Polaris 10 GPU specifications has allegedly been leaked by folks over at VR World. The leak indicates that Polaris 10 (67DF:C4) is manufactured using the 14nm FinFet process. In addition to that, the first Polaris 10-based graphics card is said to be coming with 8GB GDDR5 or GDDR5X memory.
The most interesting detail about the leak is the core and memory clock speeds. According to the leak by VR World, Polaris 10 (67DF:C4) has a core clock speed of 1050MHz. Meanwhile, the memory clock speed was recorded at 1250MHz. However, other sources are saying that this might not be the final clock speeds of the Polaris 10 GPU when it comes out. Instead, they are expecting memory clock speeds to be in the somewhere in the region of 1750MHz to 2000MHz.
Whether the rumours about both the Radeon R7 470 and R9 480 turns out to be true remains to be seen. Until Computex 2016, take this with a grain of salt.
