AMD Radeon Pro 490 spotted online, beats GTX 1070

AMD Radeon Pro 490 benchmarks spotted, beats GTX 1070

Leaked benchmark numbers on the purported Radeon Pro 490 have arrived, with keen eyed readers noting that I said Radeon Pro 490, and not Radeon RX 490. Here's what to expect with the next-gen Vega GPU architecture.


AMD's new Radeon Pro 490 is expected to be their 4K/VR focused graphics card, with rumors stating it'll arrive with 2 x Polaris 10 GPUs, or a new Vega 10 GPU. I doubt we'll see a Vega GPU powering the new Radeon Pro 490 graphics card, but a dual-GPU based on P10 GPUs would make sense, with 16GB of GDDR5 in total.

We should expect the Radeon RX/Pro 490 to arrive with 4608 stream processors (double the 2304 SPs on the Radeon RX 480) and reduced GPU clocks to around 1200MHz, down from 1266MHz on the RX 480. Since the TDP of the RX 480 was 150W, we should see AMD hitting 300W on the dual-GPU card.

Rumored Tech Specs of Radeon RX/Pro 490

  • Dual GPU (Polaris 10 most likely)
  • 4608 stream processors
  • 14nm FinFET
  • 11.4 billion transistors (estimated)
  • 1200MHz GPU clocks
  • 11 TFLOPs+
  • 300W TDP
  • 8-16GB GDDR5
