The next generation of products from both AMD and Nvidia will be one of the most interesting yet, combining a process node switch and a big change in GPU architecture for both companies, meaning that next generation products may have some of the largest leaps in performance we have ever seen. 

AMD's CEO Lisa Su has teased that AMD's performance per watt of their GPUs will be double that of previous generations, which will give AMD products a much better time in mobile products like laptops and hopefully allow their desktop oriented products to run much cooler.  

 

We are also focused on delivering our next generation GPUs in 2016 which is going to improve performance per watt by two times compared to our current offerings, based on design and architectural enhancements as well as advanced FinFET products process technology.

  Next Gen AMD GPUs will have 2x the performance per watt of current offerings  

With VR headsets launching soon and power efficiency becoming a larger and larger concern for PC builders increasing the performance of products while maintaining a low TDP has never been more important. Hopefully these claims for AMD hold true for their next generation product stack as a 2x increase in performance per watt for a single generation is highly impressive. 

While this 2x increase in performance per watt may not equal a 2x increase in performance, this increase in TDP should hopefully mean that AMD's next generation products will have a 60+ percent performance improvement when compared to their current offerings.

I still think AMD needs to work on two things for their next launch: Availability to board partners/ consumers and QC on PCB components namely the vrm. We are just only seeing gigabyte begin to "tease" their version of the fury considering Asus and Sapphire have had their cards out for a long space of time. With the fury X, coil whine has been well documented so that should be a high priority on the fix list.Quote

It's not that simple. Both AMD and nVidia cards suffer from coil whine, there aren't any problems with the VRMS either.

They may be a little slow on the supply end at the moment, however it is a compromise when utilising new tech.

Would definitely like to get some AMD on the notebook.Quote

My luck they will cut power draw by 50% so it will be a stalemate.Quote

From what I have read the supply issue is based on lack of Fabrication time at the foundries so not really there fault although it certainly doesnt help them.

Any rumors of release dates?Early, mid, late 2016?Quote

That's quite a claim. Hopefully they can deliver something interesting. I'd hate to have to switch to Nvidia.Quote
