AMD Radeon RX 580 powered by refreshed Polaris 20 GPU

AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 500 refresh uses new Polaris 20 series GPU

We've been hearing rumbles of the Radeon RX 500 series for a while, but now we're getting more specific news on what GPU the refresh will use. We're still looking at the Polaris GPU architecture, but they're using a new node process, known as 14LPE and 14LPP.

  • 14LPE (Low Power Early) - Early time-to-market version with area and power benefits for mobility applications.
  • 14LPP (Low Power Plus) - Enhanced version with higher performance and lower power; a full platform offering with MPW, IP enablement and wide application coverage.

 

AMD shifting its new Radeon RX 500 series to the 14LPE/14LPP nodes won't be the same as the larger shift from 28nm to 14nm FinFET, but it will be a nice little bump. Inside of the Radeon RX 580, we're now expecting the higher-clocked Polaris 20 XTX GPU, with 2304 stream processors, 144 TMUs, and 32 ROPs with 8GB of GDDR5 RAM at 8Gbps.

 

  • AMD Radeon RX 580: Polaris 20 XTX GPU
  • AMD Radeon RX 570: Polaris 20 XL GPU
  • AMD Radeon RX 560: Polaris 11 GPU
