If you want to find out more about the new Polaris-based AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics cards but are suffering from textual overload, here's a solution for you. Rather than plough through various press releases, tech site reviews, and chart and table-heavy tech articles - why not sit back and enjoy the official AMD Radeon RX Series video playlist?

AMD has prepared a comprehensive series of videos covering a range of topics from the origin of the Polaris architecture, and an overview of the new AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card, to dissecting important contributing technologies such as APIs, display technologies, GPU architecture, VR, video de/code, and software features. For your convenience I've embedded the playlist below. Click the appropriate UI gadget to skip between the nine videos.

While poking around AMD's YouTube channel, I noticed another interesting playlist that may be useful for HEXUS readers. AMD has compiled a playlist of Radeon RX 480 graphics card review videos. There's 10 in all, at the time of writing, to flick through. You might not have heard of some of the sites that these reviews come from but others such as LinusTechTips and Digital Foundry, will likely be familiar.

I particularly like the Digital Foundry review which is a channel associated with EuroGamer. It covers all the bases without any YouTuber "Hey Guys!" or "What's up dog?" affectations. You can skip to video #6 in the playlist for that review.

While I'm not a fan of video reviews (can't read them at work!), I think it's smart that AMD are producing tech videos for everyone to use and collating review sites reviews - getting tech sites some more coverage is always a good thing.
AMD should focus on better engineering. Nvidia is taking big steps in front of them with the Pascal architecture. They are going in the same direction with Nvidia as they are already with Intel, because of lack of interest to pursue actual goals like perf/watt (don't bring arguments that Polaris is more efficient than GCN because it isn't - the delta in power efficiency is from new process 14nm). If they will use the same strategy as with the CPUs (stagnation, lower prices, sell cpus for nothing because of bad products) they will end up at the end of their road.
