AMD Radeon RX 670 GPU rumored to launch mid-October, RX 680 expected in November
The Radeon RX 570/580 successors are rumored to feature 12 nm Polaris 30 cores with increased frequencies, but same 8 GB GDDR5 VRAM. Performance-wise, these new models will most likely not be faster than the Vega 56/64 cards and will go head to head with Nvidia's GTX 1060/1070 chips.
Chinese sources close to PCOnline and ChipHell claim that the Polaris 30 refreshes for the current RX 580 GPU will integrate 2304 stream processors, whereas the RX 570 successor would still get 2048 stream processors, but the new GPUs would get higher clocks thanks to the improved 12 nm process. Both cards will feature 8 GB of GGDR5 VRAM with 256-bit bus interface. Since these will replace the existing RX570/580 models, performance would most likely be on par with Nvidia’s GTX 1060/1070 models, and pricing is expected to land in the US$200 sector.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
