According to a Facebook post from an unofficial Powercolor page, the next series of AMD video cards--the RX 500 lineup--will be released on April 18. The post also showed a picture of Powercolor's "Red Devil" version of a new card. Several sites such as Videocardz.com and Wccftech have reported on this release date, and previously leaked the specifications of the new RX 500 series of cards. Photos of the cards from other vendors such as XFX and Gigabyte/Aorus have been revealed as well.

These reports also indicate that the RX 500 line will consist of four different versions: the RX 580, RX 570, RX 560, and RX 550. All cards are said to be based on the current Polaris architecture used in the RX 400 series. The RX 500 series will not feature the much anticipated Vega architecture, which is expected to come out later this year.

The following chart details the expected specifications--derived from the Wccftech report--of AMD's new cards:
