AMD Radeon RX 580 and Radeon RX 570 Photos Leaked

Photos of AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 580 and Radeon RX 570 video cards have surfaced online via VideoCardz.com (via submitter Bobster), showing the cards without the top cover shroud revealing the cooling solution inside. Not to be confused with NVIDIA’s GTX 580 and GTX 570 which were released in 2010, the Radeon RX 580 and RX 570 are based on AMD’s Polaris 10 which rumours have been alluding to as refreshed versions of previous generation Radeon RX 480 and RX 470 video cards. The leaked photos show an engineering sample including the sticker that goes along with it, confirming a March date an Polaris ASIC type inside.

With the shroud remove, the PCB does look very similar as well as the alignment of components. The board on display has a 6-pin power connector and lacks a DVI port like the latest NVIDIA video cards but most aftermarket partners will probably add one on their own non-reference models anyway. The launch date is expected to hit on April 18th, around the same time that NVIDIA’s GeForce 11GBps and 9Gbps edition refreshes are also released for direct competition.

A blurry GPU-Z screenshot has also been provided in the photos for the RX 570 and it appears to match the leaked information a month ago. Unfortunately, it appears that AMD did not increase the memory speed like NVIDIA is planning to do, although AMD’s RX 500 series cards still have higher bandwidth because of its design. It will all come down to the benchmarks however, whether which one will be king of the sweet-spot hill because video cards in these price points tend to sell the most units for gamers.
