AMD Linux guy confirms Polaris 12 GPUs

A week or two ago the first evidence for Polaris 12 and Polaris 10 XT2 video cards was found in a new set of Linux drivers from AMD. Now a message from AMD's Alex Deucher specifically confirms a new patch that adds support for Polaris 12 GPUs. VideoCardz reports there's still uncertainty about what Polaris 12 is, or more specifically, how it will be positioned in AMD's video card lineup.

It could be that Polaris 12 is a refreshed or rebinned Polaris 11, perhaps to fill the big performance gap between Polaris 10 and Polaris 11. Alternatively, it's also possible that Polaris 12 could be even slower than the Polaris 11 GPUs.

AMD Polaris 12 notes

Linux driver files reveal there are six device IDs for Polaris 12 GPUs, which could be anything from desktop, mobile to professional GPUs.

VideoCardz also dug up some Polaris 12 benchmark results from the Ashes of the Singularity and GFX Bench databases. The Ashes of the Singularity results indicate Polaris 12 is a very slow GPU.
