AMD R9 M400 Series appears on AMD website


AMD R9 M400 Series of mobile GPUs has appeared on AMD's own website, showing the same specifications as yesterday's supposed Polaris GPU leaks. 

I have rather mixed impressions on these GPU listings as they both match the specifications of previous Polaris leaks and match the specifications of some of AMD's R9 M300 series GPUs. This leaves us in a situation where we can neither confirm or deny whether these are new GPUs are just rebrands of last generation Tonga or Bonaire based GPUs or new Polaris Based GPUs.

Yesterday an industry insider claimed that AMD would be releasing one performance segment and one mainstream segment mobile GPU, saying that AMD will be delivering a chip with 32 Compute units and offer 5.5TFLOPs of GPU performance at a TDP of less than 150W.

This means that this GPU will deliver around the same compute performance as AMD's Hawaii-based R9 290W, with half the TDP. 

The second GPU that AMD is said to be making is "Baffin"/"Polaris 11", a smaller GPU that will have a TDP of 50w, which will allow this GPU to run on just PCI express power, meaning that it will require no external power connection. 

This GPU will have 14 compute units and peak compute performance of 2.5TFLOPs, which gives this GPU compute performance that is somewhere between AMD's R7 370 and R9 380.

Hopefully that means desktop chips will be faster with earlier reported 36 or 40 CU's etc for the R9 480/480X.Quote

Just noticed this but, the cover page article is wrong.. It shows Polaris 11 being bigger than 10 when we know it's the other way around

That's some impressive specs for the mobile segment. 32 compute units is quite a bit. Now we wait to see how many cores it has. We don't know if anything has changed in regards to design of cores/CU. Could be more or less. I'd wager less since the increased efficiency all around means they can get the same performance from less cores and significantly reducing power consumption.Quote

They could definitely compete on the mobile GPU market (laptops, I should say). APU's weren't bad for what you payed for them. But they could use a more gtx 970M style in their mobile.Quote
