    We've been chatting about the upcoming Radeon RX 550, 570 and 580 graphics cards for a while now. the one thing that never solidified however is the actuality release date. That myth is now debunked ...

    Whilst it's good news on this front, the Polaris refresh. I really would like some news on Vega.

    That thin hope of news is also what sucked me in here too !

    The waiting is not easy

    Cool but I really wish it was Vega instead... unless the 580 pulls off 1070 GTX performance then maybe...

    Can we expect a review HH? What possible cards might you have ready for review?

    Vega is still some weeks off I think.

    According to the internet, it's slightly faster but not 1070 fast...

    Before is probably impossible (NDA), after is for sure.

    What do you need a review for?
    The only change is slightly higher clock speeds out of the box of ~5%.

    If it's big Polaris at 1.5GHz it's much more than that.

    Yeah only a slight change. Just like the 390/X before it higher clock speeds and more VRAM in the case of the 390 series cards.

    It says 580 is XTX, whereas 480 was XT. That is like Fury and Fury X which can be a lot actually:

    Checking OC capability of the card?
    Power consumption difference?
    If AMD did a decent job with power delivery this time?
    How much difference will be the OC cards from parters like Asus?
    Test R5 1600x vs i5 7600k with RX580vs1060?

    I don't know, there's so much he could do...and usually he does reviews on these cards so was more a question to when.
