Earlier this month, the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 640 and 630 graphics cards (based on the Polaris architecture) were revealed via driver packages. A Twitter user has also spotted the AMD Radeon 610 series in the latest driver update. The AMD Radeon 610 has the same device ID as the Radeon 520 series and is based on the Polaris architecture.

The Radeon 610 looks to be an upcoming refresh of the Radeon 520 GP, based on 1st Gen GCN Architecture and OpenCL 2.0. The Radeon 520 can be found in entry-level gaming laptops and can easily run lesser demanding titles. It can be expected that the Radeon 610 will have 5 compute units, 320 stream processors and have a clock speed of ~1030 MHz, based on the Radeon 520 performance.

This pretty much confirms the AMD Radeon 600 series will not be based on the Navi architecture. Rather, the 7nm Navi lineup will be different from the 600 series and will more than likely use a different naming convention. With the recent leaks of the upcoming Radeon GPUs, more information will be unveiled at Computex on the 28th.
