Tucked away inside the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.3.2 drivers is confirmation that AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 500 series cards are rebrands of the Polaris 10 and Polaris 11.

VideoCardz spreads word that the driver files of the 17.3.2 release contain references to the Radeon RX 580, Radeon RX 570 and Radeon RX 560. The former two are basically rebrands of the Radeon RX 480 and Radeon RX 470, while the latter one is a rebrand of the Radeon RX 460.

This doesn't mean these cards will be exactly the same, they will likely have higher clockspeeds and perhaps lower pricing.
