Now that GTX/RTX 2080/TI are out, AMD’s response is no where to be seen.
Latest rumours as of few days ago was that AMD plans to release a AMD Polaris 30 card.
Polaris 10 was first introduced in : June 29, 2016 with RX4xx cards like RX480.
Polaris 20 was first introduced in : April 18, 2017 with RX5xx cards like RX580
- this was same core, same manufacturing (with slight refinements, and basically overclocked 480)
Polaris 30 rumours - October 2018 with rx 6xx??
- lower manufacturing node (12nm)
- unsure if there is any architectural improvements
- expected 15% improvements over rx580 (so not even RX Vega56 performance )
This rumour fits nicely with a statement made by David Wang, AMD’s new graphics chief. AMD is committed to delivering a new product every year, like clockwork. and that AMD would be bringing out a new graphics product every year, via a new architecture, process changes, or “maybe incremental architecture changes.”
I doubt they will deliver a major surprise like double the shader core count (which would be awesome), but for entry level (if priced correctly) that would be a good card.
Personal i’m running 4x 480s + 1x vega64, and enjoying their rendering performance a lot.
