Report: AMD Polaris 67DF:C7 Confirmed As Radeon RX 480, Features 1.2GHz Clock Speeds
In numerous previous leaks, device ID of 67DF:C7 has been popping up, and it was being speculated that it is Polaris based GPU.
Now, a new image has surfaced, courtesy of TechPowerUp, which suggests that device ID of 67DF:C7 is indeed the just-revealed AMD radeon RX 480, featuring the core clock of 1266 MHz. The core clock is not much surprising as we have already seen it in previous 3DMark benchmarks.
Radeon RX 480 is built using 14nm FinFET process technology. This graphics card is designed to deliver huge leaps in performance compared to previous generation; however, it is not powerful enough to directly compete with GTX 1080 or GTX 1070.
But, the CrossFire setup of RX 480 delivers better performance compared to GTX 1080 and is still cheaper than GTX 1080. Which means, this graphics card delivers a massive jump in performance per watt, as well as performance per dollar.
AMD did not only make a verbal claim, but demonstrated it by benchmarking both cards in Ashes Of the Singularity. The demo revealed that dual Radeon RX 480 setup was much better in performance and efficiency compared to a GTX 1080. The dual RX 480 cost under $500 while a single GTX 1080 costs almost $600.
AMD RX 480 includes 36 compute units, and supposedly 64 stream processors making a total of 2304 SPs, and if above report is true then it has a core clock of 1266 MHz. The Radeon RX 480 will deliver a compute performance of 5 TFLOPS.
RX 480 is equipped with 8 GB GDDR5 memory, running across 256-bit memory and expected to deliver a total of 256GB/sec of memory bandwidth. This card will be available in 4 GB and 8 GB variants, with a TDP of 150 W.
The Radeon RX 480 is priced at $199 for 4 GB variant and $229 for 8 GB variants.
