New AMD Polaris Chip Spotted on Zauba with Import Price of € 1500
AMD Polaris GPUs have been spotted on the Indian import tracking portal Zauba a couple of times before. The German site 3DCenter have recently spotted yet another entry, that has pieces of graphics card codenamed “C993” this time.
Of the previously spotted C9xx-tire Polaris chips, the first graphics boards “C913” and “C924” were probably pure test boards and clearly delivered too early for retail versions of the Polaris generation. Other models including “D000”, “C980” and “C981” are all different versions of the smaller Polaris chips with mainstream claim.
The latest “C993” model is the only version of the larger Polaris graphics chips with the highest customs value. The listed price for the card is around 1,500 Euro, indicating that it should be a dual chip solution. But it can’t really be the anticipated Radeon R9 Fury X2 since it would runs under “C8xx” marks.
AMD showcased their next-gen 14nm Polaris GPUs, dubbed Polaris 11 and Polaris 10, at the CES 2016. Built using a 14nm FinFET fabrication process, the upcoming architecture packs a new memory controller as well as new multimedia cores, promising huge power efficiencies, improved speeds, and better leakage characteristics.
As for the launch, AMD has already announced their new Radeon graphics products based on the Polaris architecture will be released before September.
