AMD Vega Architecture-Based ‘Radeon RX 490’ Graphics Card Comparable with ‘NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080’
No one's certain as to the architecture of "AMD Radeon RX 490". But what is certain for now is that its performance is pretty much comparable with "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080". The only remaining question now is the price of "AMD Radeon RX 490". How much will it cost?
"AMD Radeon RX 490" Benchmark Disproves Dual-Polaris 10
The result of a still unknown graphics card only identified as Device ID 687F:C1 which has undergone benchmarking via Ashes of the Singularity website early this month still puzzles a lot of tech analysts. While there seems to be discrepancies based on the result compared to the rumored specifications (see below), there's but one thing many analysts agreed on - this still unknown graphics card is comparable to "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080"
As described on VideoCardz.com, the new graphics card is much faster than "Radeon RX 480" stating that the performance is comparable to that of "GeForce GTX 1080". The new graphics card is also likely to have just one processor. If this really is "Radeon RX 490", then it would dispel a previous rumor that it would be powered by Dual-Polaris 10 as the benchmark system that can easily detect whether it's a single, or dual processor, even if the graphics card is unknown.
Another fact is that Polaris architecture has been here for months now and its configuration and digital signature are more or less known to AOTS database. Thus, the test results should have stated a dual-Polaris 10 should this be the configuration of the graphics card. And based on the latest update released by VideoCardz.com, here are the specifications of "AMD Radeon RX 490":
