This really goes into what the difference between a rebadge and refresh, a rebadge has no design changes and a refresh had process changes and increase performance/efficiency.

I'm really interested to see how power they've managed to squeeze out of Polaris. Have the core clocks been announced yet? I wonder whether it could be near 1400Mhz. That would be a nice boost over the RX 480.

Wait now I am confused. So this is not Vega, right? those cores don't look to be packing any HBM.

God how I hate this rebrand stuff! Not to mention that 11 performs less than 10?!? WTF AMD?!?! This is so stupid.
