AMD Radeon RX 500 series is said to be coming this April. AMD series feature mainstream Vega 11 and high-performance Vega 10.

Recent update with the AMD RX 500 series said that it will be coming to a close launch on the 18th day of April after previous speculations that the RX 580 and the RX 570 will be coming the first week, while the rest will follow. Kit Guru reported that even though there is no concrete evidence yet for the release date and just purely speculations, it's more likely that the RX 500 series is a Polaris refresh.

Meanwhile, some leaks revealed that the AMD Radeon RX 570 and RX 580 will be replacing the last RX 470 and RX 480 and will serve as an alternative to Radeon RX Vega family. According to WCCFTech, the AMD Radeon RX 500 series will feature some variants like Vega 10, Vega 11 and Polaris graphics cards.

To note, AMD is said to be sending information that it would feature the Vega graphics core. More so the AMD Radeon RX 500 series will replace the Radeon RX 400 series with better efficiency and performance.

The new AMD Radeon RX 500 series is said to be feature the Vega 10 GPU which means faster memory speeds. Also, it will have the Vega 11 chip, a smaller chip compared to the Vega 10. Likewise, the Vega 11 will replace the AMD mainstream chip graphics core of Polaris 10. Vega 11 goes in a traditional memory route with a single HBM2, a 4GB VRAM 256 GB/s speed at a 1024-bit interface.

The AMD Radeon RX 580, RX 570 and RX 560 are said to be improved versions of the Radeon RX 480, RX 470 and RX 460, thus increasing its performance and clock speeds. Plus, with the contribution of the features of Vega 10 and Vega 11, the AMD Radeon RX 500 series will surely be an outstanding GPU.
