It just keeps getting better and better doesn’t it? Folks at VideoCardz have apparently discovered one rather interesting detail about AIDA64’s latest beta driver. Interestingly, the beta driver contains ‘information’ regarding Radeon’s upcoming RX 580 and RX 570 graphics cards.
AIDA64’s beta driver contains the follow excerpt: GPU information for AMD Radeon RX 570 (Polaris 10) and Radeon RX 580 (Polaris 10). There are several key takeaways from this. Firstly, it seems that the both the RX 580 and RX 570 graphics cards will be based off of Radeon’s Polaris 10 GPU. We’ve already known this for a while now, but according to previous rumours, the Polaris 10 GPU will supposedly come with a new name.
Next, based on the fact that both the Radeon RX 570 and RX 580 are now listed on AIDA64, it seems very likely that we are indeed nearing the official launch date. According to VideoCardz, Radeon’s RX 500 series of graphics cards will be official launched on 18 April, which is less than two weeks from now.
For those who aren’t aware, Radeon’s RX 500 graphics cards are strongly rumoured to be ‘rebrands’ of the company’s older RX 400 series of cards. This means that it’ll be very unlikely that they will be equipped with Vega GPUs. However, consumers should still expect Radeon to be releasing Vega-based GPUs sometime this year.
