AMD believed to be working on a 232mm² Polaris GPU

The LinkedIn profile of a former senior engineer at AMD suggests the firm's graphics division is or was working on a 14nm GPU with a die size of 232mm². The details reveal this "dGPU project F" chip is designed to be manufactured on a 14nm LPP process by GlobalFoundries or Samsung, it has 430 blocks and a die size of 232mm². Several sites believe this could be an upcoming Polaris-based GPU.
Project F is yet another codename for the chip designed at AMD HQ. What we’ve learned from previous LinkedIn leaks is that just because something is designed and reaches engineering state, it does not mean it will end up as a product for end-users. Project F could be one of such designs.


The profile also confirms that Project F has a die size of 232mm2, which would indicate that we are looking at Pitcairn (Curacao, Trinidad) replacement. It could be the same chip that was showcased by AMD at CES as GeForce GTX 950 competitor. In other words, Project F might be the graphics processor for Radeon R9/R7 470(X) series.
