AMD is currently set to roll out its AMD Radeon RX 500 series line-up sometime next month. A couple of weeks ago, we reported that the Radeon RX 580, RX 570, RX 560 and RX 550 will be released within the time frame of early April, but apparently things are different at the moment.
According to a report published on a Chinese web page, the AMD Radeon RX 500 series will be launched sometime during mid-April, or specifically, on April 18th, just a day after Ryzen 5. Previously, it was confirmed that the RX 580 and 570 will be launched on April 4th, and RX 560 and the RX 550 the very next week, on April 11th.
The new report claiming the delay didn’t mention any specific models from the RX 500 line-up which will be released along with the Ryzen 5. However, it did mention that the company is also preparing to launch one Polaris 12 based low-end GPU, which will compete against the GeForce GTX 1050.
As we all know, the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 580, 570, 560 and the 550 are simply the refreshed models of Polaris based 480, 470, 460 and 450 respectively. But the good thing is that in May-June we would see the complete line-up of Radeon RX 500 graphics cards using VEGA silicon, under the name of Radeon RX VEGA.
If the report is true, we will see AMD launching mid-range gaming products such as Ryzen 5 and Radeon RX 500 line up simultaneously sometime during April 17-18th and the combo will be a good choice for those mid range PC gamers looking for an upgrade. Stay tuned for more updates!
