    AMD Radeon RX 500 graphics cards presentation slides leak

    AMD leverages "3rd Gen FinFET 14" and "aggressive tuning" for higher clocked GPUs.

    if indeed just a higher clocked version of Polaris(e.g RX 480) why didnt they just call them as RX 4x5 example 485, 475 etc. to call them one step higher numbering leaves number spacing for future products to have to change naming yet again.

    IMO it would make far better sense to call the refined/rebranded ones as just a higher number in the same family as they are based on polaris, not on vega, so 485 IMO would still give consumers proper information on purchasing ex the 485 is better/faster than 480 and leaves open the 5xx for an actual new generation not just a "tuned" version..you know kind of like way back when with 4850/4870 when 4890 was released it was/did fit in the 48xx family as it was just a few extra shaders, higher clocked version of 4870, just as 580 is essentially just a higher clocked 480(beyond any optimizations being done)

    Crappy noclementaure is just crappy nomenclature with potential consumers feeling cheated or whatever, whereas again IMO if you get a 485 and it is just a chunk faster then 480 maybe less power use cooler running or whatever is much different than calling it a higher number such as 580 where most would be expecting a solid chunk higher given performance, from the sounds of it, such is not the case maybe 10% at the very most card vs card
    (1120 base 1266 boost using 8Ghz as the memory speed vs a "gain" stock clocks at 137Mhz boost of 91Mhz maybe memory clocked higher than 8000? while using less power then outgoing 4xx series I would hope that the boost clock stays active more often and cooling system has been refined as well(instead of most times was clocking down to less then "base" clock cause of heat/power limitation via the poor reference cooling solution even some of the custom ones folks were paying much more than should have so as to give even more reason to not bother with RX 480 at the same or less launch price for the 8Gb version as launch price of $199 was a pipe dream 9/10 when pretty much every seller was pricing above this amount for the 4gb version and at least $40 more then should have been for the 8Gb versions)

    Anyways, only a few days more to see what the mis-named RX 5xx series will bring

    Doesn't matter, no cards is really updated for 4K anyway as it is, in the adverts yes... but reality no... just getting 60FPS min is the devil as it is, it is better to stick with the cheaper solution that easely would run anything ultra on a 1080p monitor at 80fps or better or whichever.

    Because marketing fluff > conveying sensible information to consumers.

    Lack of comparison against their own 470/480 is a bit suspect. Guessing the gains are... less than significant.
