Not a lot was shown of AMD's Polaris at the firm's Capsaicin event earlier this week but word is going around that the high-end Polaris 10 engineering sample has a short PCB with a size not much larger than the R9 Nano's. It is still unknown whether Polaris 10 will replace Hawaii or Fiji.
The sample used during Capsaicin had five display outputs, including: three DisplayPorts 1.3, HDMI 2.0 and DVI-D Dual Link. DisplayPort 1.3 supports 5K content at 60 Hz or 4K/60Hz with HDR. The DVI port was not offered with Fiji-based products, so it’s interesting to see it installed again.
Ryan Shrout from PC Perspective was at the event and reports he saw the lower-end Polaris 11, this card ran passively while playing 4K VR content.
I did get to see AMD's Polaris 11 GPU running PASSIVELY while playing back 4K VR content last night. Pretty impressive. #AMDCapsaicin
