Sapphire Ticket Listing Shows AMD RX 490 With 8GB GDDR5 VRAM, No HBM2 or GDDR5X

AMD recently showed-off their RX 490 for 4K gaming. But things got a little confused. Today, a Reddit user, named CBwardog, showed something peculiar. In his Reddit thread, he was submitting a complain ticket to Sapphire. In the drop-down menu, the AMD RX 490 was listed. The strange thing is that the card was listed with name “Sapphire Radeon 490 8G GDDR5 PCI-E HDMI”.  As you can see, according to Sapphire’s ticket listing, the AMD RX 490 has 8GB GDDR5 VRAM.

AMD RX 490

The AMD RX 490 is expected to be with HBM2 or GDDR5X VRAM, but according to Sapphire’s listing, this is not the case. AMD hasn’t said anything about this. So you should take this with a pinch of salt.

Before guys come in saying “this is not the RX version”, let me clear that. If you look closely on top of the GPU selection drop-down menu, next to the PCI-E drop-down menu, you can see that “SAPPHIRE RX Series” is selected. So, the cards listed are probably RX editions. All the other GPUs in the list have “RX” in their name but the 490 doesn’t. There’s still doubt. Perhaps AMD is planning to launch the 490 with 8GB GDDR5 VRAM and the RX 490 with HBM2/GDDR5X VRAM.
