Recently, AMD announced the upcoming AMD Zen that is set to release in the first quarter of 2017. The AMD Zen is the response of the AMD company to the Intel i7, but with a more powerful processing speed.
As Tweak Town reported, AMD Radeon RX 490 will possibly feature a 4K-ready GPU aside from the fact that it will run a 1,200MHz. It will be competing against the powerful NVidia GTX 1080.
Aside from a lower price value, which is what the AMD is known for, fans are expecting a lot from the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 490. The WCCF Tech said that it would probably be a VR-ready GPU.
In addition, the Radeon RX 490 is expected to feature a bus width higher than the current 256bit. Having a higher bus width would definitely demand a higher power consumption.
There is still no further confirmation yet from the AMD company, whether they will be using a Dual Polaris system or will use the new Vega 10 Architecture. As of the moment, AMD will surely launch a competitive GPU that other companies would have to worry about.
