Late last month, we saw the first images of an alleged Navi 21-based RDNA 2 cryptocurrency mining card. Although we couldn't determine what exact GPU was being used, Navi 21-based Radeon RX cards have Ethereum hash rates ranging from 61 MH/s for the Radeon RX 6800 to 65 MH/s for the Radeon RX 6900 XT. Now, another dedicated RDNA 2 cryptomining card has appeared, and it's apparently based on the Navi 22 GPU. Navi 22 is used in the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card for those unfamiliar with AMD's GPU nomenclature. According to the information provided alongside the images, this card features a passive, fanless cooling system and we spy an XFX logo above the PCIe 4.0 connector. For those keeping scores,...

It is a pretty safe bet that AMD will introduce a range of mobile GPUs based on its latest generation RNDA 2 graphics architecture—essentially a porting of the Radeon RX 6000 series over to laptops. Exactly when and what specific SKUs will launch are both wait-and-see things. While we wait to see what emerges from AMD, the company seems to have partially tipped its hand in its latest GPU driver. Following the release of its Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card on the desktop, AMD was quick to push out a new GPU driver earlier this week, Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.3.1. It offers official support for the new card, as well as brings Radeon Boost support to DirectX 12 with variable rate shading in... Read more...
After months of rumors and speculation, and then an accidental slip-up by AMD itself, the company finally announced the Radeon RX 6700 XT on Wednesday. The new GPU comes with a cut-down version of Big Navi, dubbed Navi 22 (not-so Big Navi?), which has 40 compute units with 12 GB of 192-bit GDDR6 VRAM. AMD targets 1440p with maximum settings as the render target for its newest $479 graphics card. This GPU has a pretty GPU boost high clock speed out of the gate, but BioStar has just announced that its RX 6700 XT models will run even faster.  The awkwardly named VA67T6TEL9 Ver. RX6700XT M appears to just be a reference design Radeon RX 6700 XT with a slightly higher than normal GPU clock... Read more...
The Episode 3 livestream of AMD’s “Where Gaming Begins” series just ended, during which the company revealed some feature updates coming to its Ryzen CPUs and Radeon GPUs and officially announced the latest member of its RDNA2-based Radeon RX 6000 family, the forthcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT. But before we dive into the Radeon RX 6700 XT, AMD also announced updates coming to previous-gen Ryzen 3000 series processors and its Radeon Software suite, that should make more than a few gamers and performance enthusiasts happy... Smart Access Memory Comes To Ryzen 3000 Smart Access Memory – AMD’s branding for supper of the PCIe spec’s Resizable BAR feature – launched... Read more...
We've been hearing about a new mid-range RDNA2 card from AMD for months, and it now looks as though the wait is nearly over. AMD tweeted this morning that it will hold a special event on March 3rd at 11 am during which it will announce the latest member of the Radeon RX 6000 family. Although AMD doesn't delve into any specifics, we're sure that the company will announce the Radeon RX 6700 XT at the event. This launch comes well after the Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Radeon RX 6800, which bowed at the end of 2020. Judging by the image that we have of the [alleged] Radeon RX 6700 XT, it features a less robust cooling solution consisting of just two fans (instead of the triple-fan arrangement... Read more...
AMD has shown the desktop a lot of love with its Zen 3 CPUs (Ryzen 5000 series) and RDNA 2 GPUs (Radeon RX 6000 series), and both architectures will eventually find their way to mobile designs, as well. Earlier today we wrote about several Ryzen 5000H and Ryzen 5000U CPUs that were recently leaked. As a follow-up, let's talk about the latest Radeon RX 6000M leaks. The Radeon RX 6000M series is what we presume AMD will call its mobile GPUs based on RDNA 2. We have not heard a whole about AMD's mobile GPU plans, but as time goes on, more unofficial information has materialized. As things stand, it looks like there will be at least three mobile GPUs based on AMD's latest graphics architecture: Navi... Read more...
There have been a million and one leaks (or thereabouts) of what NVIDIA is cooking up to serve next within its Ampere line, like the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, but what about AMD? Team Red has only just come out with its first RDNA 2 cards, but like NVIDIA, you can bank on the company adding more SKUs to the small pile. Namely, a Radeon RX 6700 series might be imminent. Like its rival, AMD introduced RDNA 2 to the world with three higher end options, including the Radeon RX 6900 XT ($999), Radeon RX 6800 XT ($649), and Radeon RX 6800 ($579). These are intended to compete with the GeForce RTX 3090 ($1,499), GeForce RTX 3080 ($699), and GeForce RTX 3700 ($499), respectively. Not everyone has $500+ to... Read more...
There's a new Linux driver release that contains a reference to an upcoming AMD graphics processing unit (GPU) codenamed "Navy Flounder," and now I can't get that Pinkard & Bowden song out of my head. You know, the fishy one titled, "I Lobster But Never Flounder." Yeah, don't judge, click that link and it will be stuck in YOUR head as well. You're welcome. But I digress—I'm not here to discuss goofy country songs. This is all about AMD's upcoming Navi launch, which is underpinned by the same second-generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) architecture that will power both Sony's PlayStation 5 and Microsoft's Xbox Series X consoles, as well as a new round of Radeon graphics cards. Spotted by Twitter... Read more...
