AMD unveiled their next-gen Radeon RX Vega graphics card family during their Capsaicin & Cream event at GDC 2017 last week, but the rumbles of their upcoming Radeon RX 580 aren't going away anytime soon.




AMD will be launching the Radeon RX 580 in just a few weeks time on April 4, according to the latest rumors - with the Radeon RX 570 to debut at the same time. According to the same rumor, AMD will launch the lower-end Radeon RX 560 and RX 550 graphics cards on April 11. All of them are expected to be rebrands, and slight tweaks of the current-gen Radeon RX 400 series cards.


The Radeon RX 580 will reportedly be a rebranded RX 480 with slightly tweaked GPU speeds of 1340MHz, a 74MHz bump from the RX 480 - while the RX 570 will be 38MHz faster than the RX 470. The Radeon RX 570 and RX 580 will be available in both 4GB, and 8GB variants.
