The new AMD Polaris 10 GPU will supposedly have the same power as a GTX 980 for a fraction of the price.
This follows a behind-closed-doors event held by AMD in Taiwan showcasing the upcoming Polaris GPUs.
Polaris GPUs are made using a 14nm FinFET fabrication process, which leads to an increased performance in transistor density and efficiency for a fraction of the manufacturing costs.
“Early benchmarks have the Polaris 10 scoring in the region of 4000 points in 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra, which puts it firmly in the ballpark of the Fury X and the 980 Ti.”
The AMD Polaris 10 GPU has not received an official release date or pricing, but rumours point to a $300 – $400 price range.
