AMD Employee Posts RX 580 and RX 560 AOTS Benchmarks? [Rumor]

According to Videocardz, supposedly an AMD employee posted Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks of the RX 580 and RX 560 to the benchmark leaderboard. I was able to find his LinkedIn profile based off the name on the leaderboard. Does this mean that it was an AMD employee? No, there might be a 1,000 people in India with the same exact name. Leaks are fun; especially when they may have come from the corporation!

What’s RX 580? Is it a new chip? Is it a rebranded and overclocked RX 480? I don’t think we can answer this yet. Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks are hard to compare, but there are plenty of results with GTX 1070 in this area (7100 points in Standard 1080p preset).

The guy who tested RX 580 works for AMD (you can find his Facebook profile, because he used a real name as AotS login). We don’t want to stalk people or cause any problems to this guy, so excuse me for not posting a link. It’s easy to find though..
