    Over in Asia AMD seems to be rebadging Radeon RX 570 as 580 cards. It is a little unclear as to who, what and why but this isn't the first time something similar is happening. Basically, it's a ne...

    This crap has to stop, if you change the specs of the card, change the goddamn name.

    Call it the RX 575 or RX 580LE or something to let people know its not the same, just cause us tech focused people check every single spec and would notice doesn't mean a significant portion of the public wouldn't get confused and accidently buy the wrong product.

    Not funny. Because of all those products made for China which end up being send to western countries where people expect something else.

    Rebranded RX570 as RX580 with 2048 shader processors? :(

    From the Frontpage News article:

    "And with an RX 580 that should be 2304 (which is the shader count for the RX 570)."

    Maybe I need another six cups of coffee, but, within the context of this story, shouldn't that read, "...which is the shader count for the RX 580" ???

    Anyway, this is a really stupid thing for AMD to allow their AIB partners to do. By that I mean, the board manufacturer's do pretty much whatever they want. And, while I can't prove it, as with the 14 CU RX 560 fiasco, I think that is exactly what is taking place.

    I'm doubtful that someone at RTG actually said, "Why not shoot ourselves in the foot yet again, and re-brand some cards that use our Polaris 20 XL chips with the same product name as the cards that use the Polaris 20 XTX chip? Aces! I mean, what could possibly go wrong?"

    I thought with Mike Rayfield and David Wang at the controls, this nonsense would stop. It seems like it's always two steps forward, one step back with this outfit.

    if only they tightened up RAM timings, polaris would be pretty good. There is EASILY a 10%-20% boost just from using a modded bios with tightened timings. Stock timings are just too loose and holds back polaris.

    Yep, same for 9 Gbps 1060 and 11 Gbps 1080.

    Meanwhile everyone patiently waits for AMD to actually release something new in the gpu department so we can get the competition rolling again. The rtx 20 series prices didn't come without a reason.
