Thus the AMD Radeon RX 490 listed in a promotion that will be ended in the current year (2016), so it seems like the company has confirmed its launch and it will arrive before the end of current year Regarding graphics card, yet we don’t have much detail. It will be the first graphics card based on the flagship VEGA silicon, which will cover the high-end graphics card segment with 4096 Stream Processors exactly the same as Fiji, but thanks to the new 14nm FinFET lithography promises to consume half power being faster, also the new GPU core is equipped with AMD Graphics Core Next 4.0 architecture with memory HBM2, able to reach a bandwidth of 1024 GB / s. The number of Raster Engines would increase to 128, so we will also see additional improvement in performance.
