Radeon RX 500X Series Shows Up On AMD’s Official Website
The official website for AMD shows references to the AMD Radeon RX 500X series of graphics cards, without any further details or additional information. The RX 500X series hasn’t been officially announced yet, but it’s presumed that these series will be based on the Polaris GPU and feature slightly higher clock speeds than the current Radeon RX 500 series.
The product pages for the RX 500X is still live on AMD’s website and is referenced in the name of the URL. These new graphics cards don’t come as a total surprise as rumors about the faster video cards have been circulating for about a week.
TweakTown was one of the first to report the rumor about AMD’s updated line-up and claims that the X-series will bring a minor performance change of about five to six percent. The architecture of the GPU’s remains unchanged compared to the RX 500 series. According to the rumor, these new cards should release somewhere early this summer, possibly in June or July.
Further investigation shows that AMD is working on the RX 540X, 550X, 560X, 570X and the 580X as well.
The new X-series would be the second time that AMD is rebranding the Polaris GPU, as the RX 580 and RX 570 already are rebrands of the RX 480 and RX 460 respectively, but with higher clock speeds. It appears AMD is pulling the same trick twice with the X-series.
