AMD Radeon Rx 400 series to use Arctic Islands naming

While we're still waiting for the arrival of AMD's Radeon Rx 300 series, the first rumors about the 400 series already start to appear online. VideoCardz wrote today that AMD's future generation will use Arctic Islands GPU names.
We do not know if the Arctic Islands codename is correct, but if it is, then I hope there is more here than just marketing decision. Will Arctic Islands bring a new quality of cooling solutions to Radeon family? Well, in 2016 we will be expecting 16/14nm FinFet chips, much more power efficient that current 28nm silicons, so there’s still a lot to be done in this regard.

Radeon Series codenames:
  • 2012 — Radeon HD 7000 — Southern Islands
  • 2013 — Radeon HD 8000 — Sea Islands
  • 2014 — Radeon Rx 200 —— Volcanic Islands
  • 2015 — Radeon Rx 300 —— Pirate Islands
  • 2016 — Radeon Rx 400 —— Arctic Islands
