One report claims to get the slide from the event related to Polaris 10 which mentions some very important information of the graphics card.

It will have maximum TDP of 175W, confirming that the normal temps will be less than that.
Interestingly, it also mentioned the 3D Mark FireStrike Ultra score which is around almost 4000 points. It must be noted that this score is also same as that of GeForce GTX 980 Ti and Radeon Fury X.
As per the reports, high-end graphics card from 400 series is Radeon R9 490X, powered by Polaris 10 will feature 2560 stream processors, 14nm FinFET process node with most probably 8 GB of GDDR5X memory.
