Within the occasion you are contained in the hunt for a mannequin new prebuilt desktop or laptop computer laptop, you could come all by means of an ostensibly new GPU lineup—AMD quietly added quite a lot of Radeon 600 assortment fashions to its web site. Attempting on the specs, nonetheless, all of them appear to be rebadged Radeon 500 assortment GPUs based completely on the corporate’s earlier know-how Polaris building, and in no way Navi.
There are 5 fashions in all. Correct proper right here they’re, together with the earlier know-how GPUs they align with:
- Radeon RX 640—Radeon 550X

All of them take intention at laptops, whereas the Radeon RX 640 and Radeon 630 may even be utilized in desktops.
Our mates at Anandtech combed by the use of the specs and positioned that every of the 600 assortment GPUs corresponds identically to a 500 assortment half, as outlined above. It is 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 in the third quarter, possibly all through the identical time as methods that options Intel’s 10th know-how Core “Ice Lake” CPUs. These are anticipated to realize 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.
