AMD Radeon RX 490 Listed Online – A High-End, Enthusiast Aimed Graphics Card Built For 4K AAA / VR Gaming
The AMD Radeon RX 490 is a new graphics card and allegedly, the fastest of the Radeon RX 400 series lineup. The Radeon RX 490 is an enthusiast aimed graphics card that will be able to power AAA experiences at up to 4K resolutions and also run VR titles smoothly. AMD RX 490 may be part of the Radeon RX 400 series line up but it isn’t confirmed if it will be based on Polaris or Vega GPU architecture.
The listing mentions the new card as the AMD Radeon RX 490 with a product launch mentioned for 2nd half of 2016. The card also supports Crossfire functionality but that doesn’t tells us whether it is a single chip or dual chip based card since dual chip cards from AMD also support Crossfire. The interesting thing is that AMD might show a glimpse of the new card at an upcoming event which is centered around their Zen based Summit Ridge processors.
