AMD Radeon RX 400 & 500 Series Graphics Cards Promise High-Quality PC Gaming
AMD revealed that Radeon RX 500-series graphic cards are a perfect complement to the company’s new Ryzen 5 processors on Tuesday. Based on the same Polaris graphics processors as the Radeon RX 400 series launched last year, the RX 500 series has new low-end GPU focused solely on e-sports and home theater PCs. However, the company also announced that it is refreshing its RX 400 Series in April as affordable solutions for upgrading PCs.
Additionally, the RX 400 will be upgraded to support virtual reality and high-quality PC gaming. The company promises that the RX 500 family won’t be just a rebrand of 2016’s RX 400 portfolio. Rumored to arrive on April 18, the graphic cars promise to boost clock speeds only slightly higher than what is offered with the RX 400 Series. That means that the refreshed older cards still won't be able to perform as aggressively as the latest offering.
According to the PC World, AMD's improvements from the RX 400 series to the RX 500 series are notable. The refreshed RX 400 cards will mostly combat issues present in the original cards. A power-draw controversy affected the card during its debut as well, and the game tech giant pushed out a rapid fix for the issue.
The Radeon RX 400 family is set by AMD to depend on its partners to provide the latest Radeon solutions through its innovative design. According to the Digital Trends, sellers will most likely include Asus, Gigabyte, Micro-Star International, PowerColor, Sapphire, Visiontek, and XFX. They will each accommodate buyers to provide a customized experience that would improve the visual fidelity of PC games and VR experiences as aimed by the AMD's new design.
AMD has also added a new power state for the Radeon RX 500 series cards so that it consume less power at idle. The same applies while users are watching a video, and even using multi-monitor setups. Radeon representatives also announced the significant power and temperature gains achievable in games that support the awesome Radeon Chill, and that the graphics card is also now compatible with the insanely popular League of Legends and Dota 2.
