We’ve known for a while that AMD has been working on a new iteration of the Graphics Card Next platform codenamed Polaris. Today the company made it official, with the apparent release of several slides containing information on the new architecture.
As predicted the new cards will be branded under the Radeon 400 series moniker and bring with them a whole host of improvements over the previous generation Radeon 300 series. In terms of the manufacturing process AMD will be using a combination of 16nm fabrication alongside a licensed process from Samsung that uses 14nm. They’ve also focused on the performance per watt, making the Radeon 400 series less demanding on laptops when compared to its predecessors.
