the upgraded Radeon RX 560 bumped that to 16 CUs and 1,024 SPs. Now, some—but not all—of the Radeon RX 560s you’ll find online have specs that match the older 460 cards, and sometimes run at lower clock speeds to boot.

They're probably just rebadging old 460 stock.

By AMD you mean the OEM partners actually manufacturing the cards.

Because the company that manufactures the PCB and solders the chip onto it is totally going to remove the IHS, laser cut a bunch of cores, and then ship it off to the customer to... make less money and hurt their reputation?

They can totally decline to offer the product as part of their line.

And why would they do that? And how would this rebranded 460 change that situation?

Started off worse than a 1050. Not worth any effort.

wow

It's less worst than Nvidia. They rebranded mid tier card model to high end one starting from the 600 series. .

Dear Amazon.

Thank you helping me buy a GTX 1060 6GB for under $200 in April thus letting me avoid AMD for the time being.

Sincerely,
- Someone who's going to be leaving the window open a bit less this winter thanks to using an Intel/nVidia system and not using an AMD/AMD furnace.
