AMD Radeon RX 580 and RX 560 Spotted in AotS

During the Ryzen launch event today, AMD had an opportunity to show off Vega once again. Interestingly, the company chose to run a Star Wars Battlefront demo again. In addition to the scant details from the event, we also have some more leaked benchmarks coming out. This time, we 2 new cards, the RX 580 and RX 560 popping up in Ashes of the Singularity online benchmarks database.
From the various rumours we’ve gotten, we know that Vega and RX 500 will likely launch in 1H 2017, with perhaps more details at the GDC Capsaicin and Cream live stream. What we don’t know is the level of overlap between RX 500 and Vega products. Is the RX 580 a low-end Vega GPU or is it merely a rebranded RX 480 with higher clocks. Given that performance appears to be reaching GTX 1070 levels, perhaps it might be Vega.
Another new RX 500 GPU we’re seeing is the RX 560 as well. Judging from the score, it looks like the card is a bit higher than the RX 460 but not quite reaching the level of the RX 470. With the new RX 500 lineup, AMD has a chance to juggle and optimise their lineup. Perhaps the RX 560 will feature the full Polaris 11 GPU or be a cut-down Polaris 10 a la RX 470D.
