Specifications for AMD's RX 500 series leak online, with some suggesting that the new series of GPUs will use a more advanced version of GlobalFoundries' 14nm manufacturing process. 
 
It has been suggested by Benchlife that AMD will be moving from GlobalFoundries' 14nm LPE (Low Power Early) to 14nm LPP (Low Power Plus), though at this time we cannot find any evidence that AMD's original Polaris GPUs didn't run on 14nm LPP.  If this is true AMD can gain some significant performance advantages and power reductions by using this new process, with this process offering 15%  
 
If this is true AMD can gain some significant performance advantages and power reductions by using this new process, with this process offering 15% higher switching speeds and 15% lower power draw. These changes can help AMD offer some significant performance gains with their RX 500 series, despite the fact that they are based on the same Polaris architecture as their RX 400 series.   
 
Below are some likely specifications for AMD's RX 500 series of GPUs, with AMD adding an entry-level RX 550 GPU to the lineup and replacing their RX 460 with a fully enabled Polaris 10 GPU, offering 128 more GPU cores/stream processors. 
 
It has been suggested that AMD will be renaming their new Polaris 10 and 11 versions Polaris 20 and 21, to signify this change from 14nm LPE to 14nm LPP.

Right now it is unknown how high clock speeds will be on AMD's RX 500 series, though it is likely that they will offer increased boost clock speeds and use higher speed memory for improved memory performance on select SKUs. At this time the clock speeds of AMD's RX 500 series remain unconfirmed. 

Recent rumours suggest that AMD's RX 500 series will release in mid-April, though at this time AMD has not made any official announcements.

I think a good opportunity would be to add faster memory chips or even G5X for the 580. Would get pretty big performance increases, or more so from that since it's likely the core clocks won't get much higherQuote

It all depends on how much GDDR5X costs and if t gives AMD any meaningful gains in performance.

More memory bandwidth is good, but having more for the sake of it is meaningless. Remember that only the 1080 and 1080Ti from Nvidia have GDDR5X and they are designed for 4K gaming.Quote

Well it's faster. Running at 7ghz memory now to even 8ghz and with G5X running at say 9Ghz, is a very large increase in speed. And speed is what counts for gaming.Quote

I would love to see GDDR5X on the 580. That would be real stellar move by AMD. If 1400Mhz became pimps to achieve and higher plus 8-9Ghz 5X memory, it may not compete against Volta 1160 but it'll trump the current 1060.Quote
