[overclock3d] AMD release RX 400 series Polaris info

post #1 of 113
Thread Starter 







I don't understand why they don't show the RX470 and the RX460. Lisa Su showed them at the PC event.

AMD states that these GPUs offers 2.8X the performance per watt of their predecessors but over the past few weeks many of us have wondered how these numbers were calculated, now we know how thanks to the endnotes on AMD press deck.

The Polaris 11 number is taken from the respective scores from 3DMARK 11 and 3DMARK Firestrike, comparing a mobile system with an Intel i7-4600M CPU with either an R9 M280X or an RX 480M. The R9 M280X scored 5700 and 3500 with a total board power of 82W while the RX 480M system scored 7200 and 4070 with a board power of 35W.

The Polaris 10 number was calculated when the performance of two identical systems with either an R9 270X and RX 470 are compared. The R9 270W drew 180W of power while the RX 470 drew 110W.

Both GPUs were tested in Ashes of the Singularity and Hitman at high settings, where the R9 270X achieved 28.1FPS in Ashes and 27.6 in Hitman while the RX 470 achieved 46FPS in ashes and 60FPS in Hitman.

Maybe the designs aren't final?

Project Scorpio claims a 6TFLOPs GPU built by AMD so there must be a model above the RX480 for the PC market. Maybe it comes out later this year?

75% increase on an R9 380?

PS4 came out in the autumn of 2013 and it used GCN 1.1, just like hawaii, that was also released around the same time. Scorpio is 1 year away or so, there is a good chance it uses some future Radeon architecture that is also 1 year away from being released.

Definitely getting one of these. Awesome performance without making me empty my wallet.

Good stuff AMD.

Vega comes out in about four months. These Polaris based cards aren't the high performance chips for this year.

Scorpio almost certainly uses a custom APU that will never be released for PCs, just like the XB1 and PS4 APUs. Its performance has effectively nothing to do with the Polaris that we'll get, other than that 6 TFLOPS is possible with some configuration of some version of GCN (probably) while fitting console TDP/power limitations.

About the 270X comparision.

The 470 is 2.8 times more efficient than the 270X, after adjusting for the power consumption, 470 is 1.7 times performance of 270X, which puts it at the same level as 280X.

They seemed to have claimed the 470 is Polaris 10.

If 470 is a cut down P10 and is same as a 280X, where would 480 be?

Did AMD pull a nVidia and cut a 480 by 30% and called it a 470?

Also, the 380X has 190W TDP.

380X on same level of 470, which makes Polaris only 1.7 times the efficiency as refreshed GCN.

2.8 times for carefully chosen examples that make it look good on paper.
