AMD Radeon RX 490M

► remove

The AMD Radeon RX 490M (formerly known as R9 M490) is a mobile high end graphics cards. It should be based on the new Polaris architecture and manufactured in 14nm FinFET. Up to now it only surfaced in a driver (according to Videocardz.com) and should be announced in mid 2016. The efficiency of Polaris should be greatly improved and therefore the M490 should at least be able to perform like a GeForce GTX 980M.

The AMD Radeon RX 480 (formerly known as R9 M480 or RX 480M) is a mobile high end graphics cards. It is based on the new Polaris architecture (Polaris 10 chip) and manufactured in 14nm FinFET. It should be based on the same chip as the desktop RX 480 (see for benchmarks and specs) but maybe offer lower clock speeds. The card was never used in a laptop (up to now) and succeeded by the slightly improved Radeon RX 580.
