    AMD Radeon RX 670 rumoured for launch this weekend

    And the Radeon RX 680 is due in November, say Chinese AMD AIB partner sources.

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 670 rumoured for launch this weekend

    So is this another pre-overclocked RX470 or a more efficient one?? Gamersnexus mentioned months ago AMD ordering fastr GDDR5. I do wonder why they never released 40CU or 44CU Polaris based SKUs - most of the design work has already been done for the consoles.

    Process shrink and performance boost, will it be a threat to nVidia, doubt it, unless it does a Ryzen and come close enough in performance but a dramatic price difference to 1000/2000 series cards.

    Given these are aimed at the 2060 which isn't out yet, and the 580 is already faster than the 1060 so it doesn't help there, I can't imagine it worries Nvidia one jot when eyes are mostly on the 2080 which AMD have no real response to.

    It does give a brief time when Nvidia are pitching their "old" range vs an AMD "new" range at this point. That does matter when it comes to driver support, though probably not enough to be a deal breaker for most.

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 670 rumoured for launch this weekend

    If AMD want to get back in the game they need to bring out 7nm cards that can match/beat the upcoming 2060 & 2070 cards at traditional raster graphics for $100 less than the Nvidia cards.

    There would be plenty of people out there who would settle for that kind of price/performance metric.

    Forget about the ray tracing gumpf, its two generations too early for it viable at resolutions higher than 1080p.

    So would this be a GTX 1065 equivalent GPU if it were to exist

    It should be closer to 1070 territory. Fingers crossed.

    More efficient. Polaris 20 didn't get a die shrink like Polaris 30 will be (if the rumours turn out to be true), 20 was a straight up rebadge and clock bump. I guess we'll have to wait and see for more details. Fingers crossed, but this will likely replace my GTX 970.

    i was thinking the same, I have a free-sync monitor after all. I still doubt it will be 1070 performance, a shrunk die wont be enough to do all that performance difference

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 670 rumoured for launch this weekend

    My guess would be something between 1060 and 1070 performance, and a nice £250 price tag. Followed by GTX 2060 with 90% of 1070 performance for £300 when it's released

    The 1070 is still selling for £400 and Nvidia don't seem to believe in bargains.

    ahah, true but there will be a price drop in the 10 series as a whole when the mid teir 20 stuff comes out, we can expect to see the 1070 to be the same price as the 2060s till new stock runs out

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 670 rumoured for launch this weekend

    I don't think my assessment for the GTX 2060 is unreasonable, the GTX 1060 is already 72-73% the performance of the 1070 and costs £230. They're going to give you a 25% performance uplift (which is 90% of the 1070), for a 30% price hike, give or take 5% or so. Only so it might end up being £310-315, but it's going to be in that kind of ball park, but I suppose given the recent price gouging with the 2000 series I might be underestimating how much they're willing to charge...

    If only this were a shrink to 7nm, sigh. I'm an AMD fan, where I'm not a fan of Nvidia's inflated prices and their closed ecosystems, but I'm not too impressed by this. The only thing that might save this will be price.

    My guess is the 7nm production queue is in far too high demand to use for a mainstream GPU right now, high volume low margin chips are better served by more mature nodes that don't have companies lining up down the street to get on. Navi will be AMD's 7nm mainstream GPU, so we'll have to wait until later next year to see how that goes.

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 670 rumoured for launch this weekend

    This seems to be a grab for the midrange to encourage those waiting to upgrade to buy AMD before the 2060 comes out.

    It unlikely to reach 1070 levels, but if GDDR6 is used it might get close. I doubt that they will though. The lack of marketing from AMD about this also points to it not being that much of an exciting release. If the price stays the same as the 570/580 then it should hit a pretty good price/performance ratio.
    IMO it will be a refresh along the lines of the 480->580. Some minor efficiency tweaks maybe, but most of the gains from a small process shrink. ~15% more performance.

    I'm interested in what releasing this says about how close Navi is, as I doubt they'd be bothering with an updated midrange card if Navi was coming out in Q1. The skeptic in me makes me think this points to Navi being later than even the June/July predictions.
