Inside the event you might be contained within the hunt for a model new prebuilt desktop or laptop computer pc laptop computer, you may come all by way of an ostensibly new GPU lineup—AMD quietly added numerous Radeon 600 assortment fashions to its website online. Trying on the specs, nonetheless, all of them look like rebadged Radeon 500 assortment GPUs primarily based fully on the company’s earlier know-how Polaris constructing, and on no account Navi.
There are 5 fashions in all. Right correct proper right here they’re, along with the sooner know-how GPUs they align with:
- Radeon RX 640—Radeon 550X
- Radeon 630—Radeon 540X
- Radeon 625—Radeon 535
- Radeon 620—Radeon 530
- Radeon 610—Radeon 520
The Radeon RX 640 is the one one with an “RX” designation. All of them are destined for OEM configurations (meaning they are going to be utilized by corporations like Dell, HP, and so forth), and won’t be weak to be purchased as off-the-shelf parts. All of them take intention at laptops, whereas the Radeon RX 640 and Radeon 630 could even be utilized in desktops.
Our mates at Anandtech combed by means of the specs and positioned that each of the 600 assortment GPUs corresponds identically to a 500 assortment half, as outlined above. It’s technically attainable that there are some under-the-hood refinements on the 600 assortment, nonetheless spec-for-spec, these are 500 assortment GPUs with new names.
The 600 assortment will launch contained within the third quarter, probably all via the similar time as strategies that choices Intel’s tenth know-how Core “Ice Lake” CPUs. These are anticipated to understand in September. That talked about, we’re not anticipating to see AMD’s 600 assortment GPUs paired with Ice Lake processors, a minimal of not initially.
