While plausible, I'm pretty sure that you just made this up.

Come on ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apparent_magnitude

Even the name is a star: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polaris

Yup, you fail at googling smile.gif You must know the exact question you need to ask, to get the answer you want.

Also, being non-native english speaking ain't helping.

Raja already answered this and it had nothing to do with magnitude.
"The naming scheme of Polaris (10, 11…) has no equation, it’s just “a sequence of numbers” and we should only expect it to increase going forward. The next Polaris chip will be bigger than 11, that’s the secret he gave us."

Doubtful. I'd wager the cost of an APU of that size would be pretty hefty due to terrible yields. Probably going to use the functional Zen APU'chips that didn't pass desktop specs, downclock them and xfire them with some Polaris 10 GPU's (more spare chips of that lying around in a year than the yet-to-go-into production of Zen based APU's.

The Jaguar (likely Puma now) cores are very small, and a ~2400 shader 14nm GCN core isn't particularly huge either. It'll probably be the same size as the existing 768 shader 28nm APU in the xbox one.

AMD is the hero that the masses need redface.gif

* of course it makes no sense to buy a $200 "VR" GPU and then a $600-800 Oculus/Vive, but hey*

Then its a good thing there are $400 headsets coming soon, eh?

Razer for sure, PS VR coming to PC is also a possibility.
