AMD's current family of 7nm Radeon RX Navi midrange graphics cards are no doubt impressive, as witnessed by the recently released Radeon RX 5600 XT (our full review). The Radeon RX 5600 XT is flanked by the Radeon RX 5500 just below it , and the Radeon RX 5700 above. However, AMD doesn't currently have a flagship-class graphics card that is capable of taking on the likes of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, and that's hopefully where "Big Navi" comes in. According to recent rumblings, Big Navi could have some big performance credentials backing it up, if a new report from ChipHell is accurate. The GPU running the show is reportedly called Navi 21 and it features second-generation... Read more...
For AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su, product development is the most fun part of her job. She revealed that nugget during an interview on an AMD sponsored show call The Bring Up, though the real reason you are reading this article is to see what she said about the so-called "Big Navi" GPU that we all know is coming. In case there was any doubt, AMD is still planning to bring out its big GPU gun in 2020. Launching is also fun, Dr. Su said, and to that end AMD will be bringing out new products this year. Big Navi is one of them, and on the CPU side, Zen 3 is another. "My main message to our fans is this is just a beginning for us in 2020. I’ve heard a little bit through Twitter and Reddit that people... Read more...
There's no doubt that "Big Navi" is on the way from AMD. In fact, CEO Lisa Su confirmed as much during a roundtable interview at CES 2020. However, there has been no clear-cut timetable on when this flagship graphics card will arrive on the scene. With that being said, it appears that AMD OEM board partner AFOX may be jumping the gun a bit with listings for a number of unannounced and unreleased graphics cards. First spotted on the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) website by VideoCardz, AFOX provides the following SKUs that could be coming in the future: Radeon RX 5950XT Radeon RX 5950 Radeon RX 5900 Radeon RX 5800 XT Now there is no guarantee that either of these names could be applied...

Could this be the year that AMD finally offers up a competitive solution in the high-end graphics space? I'm talking about the very top, where NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti occupies the throne without much threat to its crown. Interestingly enough, a leaked benchmark might possibly point to an unreleased Navi GPU that is faster than NVIDIA's top consumer card. Mayyyyyybe. Forgetting about NVIDIA's Titan RTX and professional Quadro lineup, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is quite simply the best performing graphics card for gaming, with dedicated hardware for real-time ray tracing to boot. It's also expensive, and perhaps not the kind of generational leap in performance some people were expecting, compared... Read more...
It is fair to say 2019 was a very good year for AMD. It came out with Zen 2, which marked a wholesale shift to 7-nanometer manufacturing, and has positioned itself for long term growth in the CPU and GPU sectors. Now that 2020 is upon us, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su shared a bit about what we can expect from the company going forward, during a question and answer session with a small gathering of press. The round table Q&A session covered a variety of topics, including why AMD's newest round of APUs are still using Vega for the graphics side of the equation, rather than Navi. It is an especially interesting question, since AMD plans its products out several years in advance. "It's always how we integrate... Read more...
