Thanks to the latest leak from Benchlife, AMD's RX 500 series specifications are now online. According to Benchlife, AMD will be moving from GlobalFoundries 14nm LPE (Low Power Early) to 14nm LPP (Low Power Plus), although at this time we haven't any proof that AMMD didn't run 14nm LPP on the original Polaris chips.

Windows 10 mandatory
According to a news from Microsoft they are blocking Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 updates if you’re running a Ryzen, Bristol Ridge or Kaby Lake based system. During the past weeks we’ve read several news about Windows 7 supporting Ryzen and Kaby Lake and this is clearly linked to Microsoft itself. The company is refusing to support these new CPUs on any OS other than Windows 10.

Full support for Mass Effect: Andromeda
Following the launch of AMD’s ReLive 17.3.1 Beta drivers there is already a new Beta update available. This release is supposed to bring performance improvements to a few games as well as optimizations for Mass Effect: Andromeda. Compared to the previous driver, this new release should give a 12% performance boost on the RX 480 graphics card in Mass Effect: Andromeda.
With the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
We have covered K|ngp|n breaking world records in the past and apparently the US American Vince Lucido did it again. This time he used the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card to raise the bar in Futuremark’s Time Spy benchmark even higher. The new world record mark is set with one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti pixel accelerator and it’s now beyond the 13K mark.
April 18th to be precise
According to information from the chinese site mydrivers, AMD is planning to release it's RX 500 series in April. This is nothing new, but they’ve also mentioned that the launch will be split in two parts. In a first wave the higher-end cards are going to be introduced and at a second stage the mid-range cards will make it to market. Overall it’s a bit a pity that all cards, except the Radeon RX 550, are going to be rebrands from the Radeon RX 400 series.
