It was only about a week ago that we’ve gotten our first ‘unofficial’ glimpse of the physical cooler shroud and PCB of Radeon’s upcoming RX 500 series graphics cards. Now, folks at TweakTown have managed to obtain leak benchmark results of these graphics cards.
According to TweakTown, not only will Radeon RX 500 graphics cards be slightly more powerful than their predecessors, they will also be priced slightly lower as well. This, if true, would definitely keep Radeon’s increasing dominance in the mainstream PC gaming market.
That aside, let’s take a look at the alleged specifications, shall we? First up is the Radeon RX 580, which apparently will come in two VRAM capacity variants: 4GB and 8GB. It’s said that the reference RX 580 graphics card will feature a boost clock of 1340MHz along with around 6.17 TFLOPs of compute power.
In addition, the Radeon RX 580 may also come with 2304 stream processors, 32 ROPs (render output units), and 144 TMUs (texture mapping units). In the Fire Strike Extreme benchmark, the graphics card managed to obtain a score of 6,390 whilst being overclocked to 1500MHz.
Next up is the Radeon RX 570 graphics card. This graphics card is expected to arrive with about 5 TFLOPs of compute performance along with a boost clock speed of around 1200MHz. Like its more powerful brother, the RX 570 will be coming in two VRAM sizes as well: 4GB and 8GB. Performance-wise, this graphics card was able to score 5,419 in the Fire Strike Extreme benchmark (overclocked slightly).
Finally, Radeon’s low-end offering, the RX 550. Unfortunately, not much is known about this graphics card for now in terms of its key specifications. That said, the RX 550 is found to have obtained a score of 1,832 in the Fire Strike Extreme benchmark, whilst have a clock speed of 1,190MHz. Interestingly, this graphics card too will come in two VRAM capacity variants: 2GB and 4GB.
With more and more rumours and leaks regarding Radeon RX 500 graphics cards series pouring out, one can’t help but think that their official launch is indeed getting closer. Regardless, do take this one with a grain of salt for now, folks.
