    Not too happy, AMD may have gotten some traction with their CPUs, but their GPUs are starting to fall behind.

    Vega needs to pack a punch when it comes out probably in June

    Probably will have the potential but AMD will launch it with a rubbish cooler which throttles to save $5 and buggy drivers,which need another week to sort out.

    I don't have faith they can launch anything well anymore.

    Just out of interest will the 580 overclock even higher? or is there no point to the refresh if you can already overclock the 480 to 580 levels.

    Probably,if the node has matured,but AMD might still eff up some way,and I would probably wait one month after it launches to gauge performance. Its about par for them!

    Makes sense, they've said Vega cards will actually be branded as Vega.

    I'll reserve any kind of judgement until we get some real news and not base it on unsubstantiated rumours.

    Could have at least made the 570 be the refreshed 480 and put a little extra into the 580. Really disappointed that there are no physical hardware improvements to it.

    New low end silicon! That's unexpected

    Hopefully since it is based on a current uarch and the other cards are refreshed versions of older ones,AMD won't eff up this launch!

    Perhaps so, but that's easy to do when the launch brings almost nothing new to the table. Unless they're test running some sort of Vega features out on these (highly doubt it) then the low end chip is the only interesting thing here. I would not be surprised to hear that this chip is the only reason the series is being launched - as a partner GPU for Ryzen buyers who don't want to spend RX460 amounts of money.

    My 480 already runs at the new 580 speed... Still not upset with the purchase. Flies at 1080p...

    I suspect maybe the Polaris MK2 chips will run at a higher clockspeed?

    Polaris 12 might be what the doctor ordered as a cheap media chip though!

    Depends, how well did the 300 series go down?
