It looks like we’re getting very close to the actual launch of Radeon’s upcoming lineup of graphics cards, folks. Several listings of RX 500 series graphics cards by Radeon partners have surfaced; including Asus, MSI, and Sapphire.
Let’s first take a look at Asus’ listing. According to folks at VideoCardz, Asus is expected to be bringing at least six different RX 500 series graphics cards. Of those, one had apparently been listed online with several of its key specifications revealed.
The graphics card in question is the Radeon ROG Strix RX 580 Gaming. It’ll feature 8GB VRAM; one DVI port; and two HDMI and DisplayPort ports each. When it comes to pricing, Asus’ upcoming ROG Strix RX 580 Gaming comes with a price tag of £326 (about RM1,801).
Next up is Sapphire, whom apparently is planning to release 11 RX 500 series graphics cards. Most of these graphics cards are labelled under the company’s well known ‘Nitro’ series. That said, there seem to be a new graphics card series that will be introduced by the company, it goes by the name of ‘Pulse’.
Folks at VideoCardz mentioned that Pulse graphics cards may be based on the older Polaris 10 and 11 GPUs. Prices of Sapphire’s lineup of RX 500 series graphics cards lineup range from €106 (around RM501) to €363 (approximately RM1,716).
Lastly, we have MSI’s modest listing which consists merely of two Radeon RX 500 series graphics cards, for now. These are the RX 570 X Gaming 4G and RX 580 Gaming X 8G – both of which carry price tags of €410 (about RM1,938) and €506 (around RM2,392) respectively. That said, the prices of these graphics cards will likely be different once they’re in Malaysia.
What makes MSI’s listings even more enticing is the fact that it comes with an expected stock date. Based on the pictured listing, both the RX 570 X Gaming 4G and RX 580 Gaming X 8G are expected to arrive on 10 April 2017. This seem to strongly indicate that we are, indeed, merely one week away from the official launch of Radeon’s RX 500 series.
