    AMD will launch the Radeon RX 560D, a new graphics card for the Chinese market. In essence a simplified Radeo RX 560. Compared with Radeo RX 560, the Radeon RX 560D has 896 streaming processors....

    It would have been better if they had got out 580X, with significantly more resources than 580, to get a bit closer to 1070. It's weird the top remains empty and they push out various models to fill the already thin gaps between the lower models.

    When you look at the rest of AMD's lineup, each product is maybe 10-20% better than the next tier down. Meanwhile Vega seems to be 150% better than the 580. If the official product name will be "RX 590", that's an awkward step up. If it will have a unique name but there isn't going to be a 590, it's still an awkward step up. If AMD releases an in-between product that is half as powerful as Vega, that's still an awkward step up.

    I'm aware of the Frontier Edition that everyone seems to be moaning about, and a gamer version that's supposed to sit between the GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti. What's the 3rd? Are any of these the RX 590? (I'm sincerely wondering these things, I'm not being facetious; I apparently missed some news)

    I think there will be 3 consumer versions of Vega. At least that was the rumor. We will know soon enough.

    Oh good, another cryptocurrency card. The world needs more of those.

    This card might actually be a way to deter miners from buying gaming GPUs.

    Vega doesn't sound like a very cheap card to make, no matter how you look at it, let alone disabling parts of it to make lesser cards. AMD should have made Polaris 9 in the mean time. It would have been cheap and made lots of people happy. But of course this is all empty talk since AMD never expected things would turn out like this.
