AMD to release Arctic Islands GPU family in 2016

In the past few years AMD has thrown at us new GPUs that carry some rather exotic codenames – Southern Islands, Sea Islands, Volcanic Islands and others. All of them bring images of tropical islands with great beaches, green palm trees and lots of sunshine. Well, the picture will change next year.

It turns out that the next generation of AMD GPUs, which we believe will belong to the Radeon Rx 400 series, will carry the chilly Arctic Islands codename. There is virtually no information on the new GPU family but as with all new hardware it should be faster than the Rx 300 series, which will debut in a few months.

There’s a lot of time before Arctic Islands comes to us so we’d better take a look at the AMD GPUs expected this year. The Rx 300 series will come under the Pirate Islands codename and will bring three new GPUs codenamed Fiji, Treasure Island and Bermuda. Just the high-end Pirate Islands video cards will carry HBM memory, while lower end solutions will have to do with GDDR5 memory. It is also unclear whether at least some of the GPUs will offer 20 nm production process or will stay at the current 28 nm node.
