Rumour has it that AMD is currently working on a graphics card that will compete directly with Nvidia’s recently announced GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards – both of which are expected to disrupt the mid-range GPU market when they are released.
According to the folks at VideoCardz, a ‘mysterious’ graphics card appeared on XFX’s website, which seemed to have been based on the RX 470. The XFX graphics card spotted by the tech site had a model name of XFX RX 470D45IG Black Wolf – but this may not be its actual name upon release. XFX’s website also stated that the GPU used in this particular graphics card based on the “Radeon Ellesmere Pro”, which is most likely a mistake.
Interestingly, an alleged GPU-Z screenshot of AMD’s rumoured graphics card was also spotted. Based on the screenshot, it can be seen that the graphics card features 4GB of VRAM along with a GDDR5 memory standard. Memory clock speed was listed at 1750MHz. That’s not all though, the graphics card was also apparently tested using the 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme benchmark – in which it obtained a score of 4,549.
Other than all of the details mentioned above, not much else is known about AMD’s upcoming graphics card. Regardless, as with all rumours before this, take this one with a grain of mid-range salt folks.
