It is supposed to be a mid-range product, not the flagship.

Still a 14nm GPU, it could be on par with a 970/980 while costing less

It looks more like they are comparing it to a 950 dude.

yeah, but that was with artificial framerate locks etc to make it look very low power.

not sure where in the product stack it will sit, but it will be low end, 960 replacement I imagine.

That one was a quite low end gpu for sure ( very low voltage, 850 MHz ) and just for an efficiency test

If they're going to release a midrange card ( 150-250$ ) it should perform much better

there was a misinterpretation.


David Ross Watson @Mageoftheyear @ryanshrout Can you clarify WCCFtech's claim: http://wccftech.com/amd-polaris/ they say you're saying first Polaris card will launch in two months :/

Ryan Shrout @ryanshrout

@Mageoftheyear Nope, confusion there. I meant that the GPU was brought up from production after just 2 months.

Just spotted this on my twitter feed. the article will be edited immediately.

Unfortunately these kind of misinterpretations happen, especially at times like these when a lot of people in the industry are so busy. CES is madness, especially for those like Ryan who are in the thick of it.
