I'm not a gfx whore, zero percent of my enjoyment comes from gfx so the bait doesn't apply to me. I've been playing the best games since day one this gen on a standard XBOX ONE.

What games exactly?

AMD released their statement:

We just received an official response from AMD to this observation, this is the official statement:

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.”

AMD had subsequently changed the specification website without informing the public and or media about it. 

 

ROFL.. They introduced the 14CU variant to provide AIBs and the market with more RX500 series options...(wrong, they sold them cut down chips to improve yields) but sold them as RX560s with no differentiation marked anywhere, and at the same price without informing anyone of them doing so.

 

Yep.. they got caught red handed.. and are now "taking steps.."  :hest:
