OCUK confirms that they will have new AMD GPUs on April 18th

 
Andrew "Gibbo" Gibson, a member of Overclockers UK staff, has confirmed that the company will already have stock of new AMD GPU hardware and that they will be on sale from April 18th.  
 
While he did not confirm what this new AMD GPU hardware was, it is pretty clear that he was referring to the RX 500 GPU series since his comments were in a thread relating to the AMD RX 480 after forum members discussed waiting for the RX 500 series before making a purchasing decision.  
 
He stated that the RX 480 replacement will be more expensive than many existing RX 480 models, directly stating that the GPU would be more expensive than the £209.99 Gigabyte RX 480 G1.  
 
 
The new card being rumours from AMD is already in stock and available on 18th April. 
It will cost more than current RX 480 G1 [£209.99] though.

AMD's RX 500 series is expected to ship with much higher clock speeds than their RX 480 counterparts, which should help to justify the GPU's higher price tag.

I wonder whether Nvidia do anything further about this than their memory overclocked 1060's. The RX 480 is already neck and neck with the 1060 and often beats it. You could overclock a 1060's memory manually, but if 1500Mhz is possible with the RX 580's, that just wasn't feasible previously.Quote

It looks bad on AMD if they simply replace their existing tiers with higher priced refreshes. A lot of their sheer price competitiveness would be lost.Quote

Not necessarily. If the cards perform better than the competition then it's fair.Quote
