One of yesterday's stories involved how AMD is now shipping more and more Radeon RX 560 GPUs with just 896 stream processors. These cards are almost indistinguishable from the versions with 1024 stream processors, so naturally, this generated a lot of controversy.
These are basically rebrands of the old Radeon RX 460. The only difference between that card and the "full" Radeon RX 560 is that the latter has 16 CUs whereas the former has just 14 CUs activated.
Gamers Nexus received a response from AMD. The company apologizes for the confusion and blames AIBs and e-tailers for not making a proper distinction between both models:
“It’s correct that 14 Compute Unit (896 stream processors) and 16 Compute Unit (1024 stream processor) versions of the Radeon RX 560 are available. We introduced the 14CU version this summer to provide AIBs and the market with more RX 500 series options. It’s come to our attention that on certain AIB and etail websites there’s no clear delineation between the two variants. We’re taking immediate steps to remedy this: we’re working with all AIB and channel partners to make sure the product descriptions and names clarify the CU count, so that gamers and consumers know exactly what they’re buying. We apologize for the confusion this may have caused.”
