    Rebrandeons confirmed. About the only good news is that hopefully AMD's Linux drivers won't be broken for these cards simply because they are literally overclocked/overvolted polaris parts from last year.

    Hopefully.

      Polaris Evolved is Vega?

        I just pulled the trigger on an RX 580 myself. I am still anxious on if there is support in place for it yet. As best I can tell there is no explicit "polaris20" support in git linux/drm/mesa.

          No, Polaris is next month. These are just higher/newer Polaris parts.

                RX550 will be out April 20 so maybe it's the same for RX560

                  This is normal.
                  It always happens with both nvidia and amd cards.

                    I don't think so...
                    This is just a refresh of last years' Polaris. Which is something that always happens. And was to be expected.
                    My guess is that Vega will come later (June/Jully ? )...
