    Phoronix: AMD Adds A Seemingly New Polaris ID To Their Linux Driver

    It looks like another re-branded AMD Polaris graphics card might be on the way given the latest AMDGPU Linux kernel patch...

    Maybe the rumoured Polaris 30.

      I hope it's that, a proper successor to the RX 480. The last thing they need is another rebrand like RX 580.

        The biggest threat to NVIDIA 2000 series is NVIDIA 1000 series.

          given their focus atm, I doubt we will get a 2080 competitor on the desktop.

            Sadly they are fairly quiet, no official news about Navi and what market segments it will address.

            there are folks on this forum Who can enlighten us but they are not allowed to say LOL.

              Not gonna happen. A successor would get more than one ID and would not be under the polaris10 label. It can only be an oversight or oem re-brand or another Intel part. Their Vega labeled igpu got a Polaris id if I remember correctly

                It will be a rebrand. There is no reason to come up with a newly designed Chip and use outdated Polaris instead of Vega IP.

                  I'm not so sure. If they move Polaris to 12nm that alone could be a nice performance boost with the old chip design. Vega is a completely different market segment (mid- to high-end), so not really a true Polaris successor.

                    Maybe there will be RX580x2 or even quad/hexa crossfire?
