Slowly however indubitably, it feels love AMD is tracking towards constructing a graphics card that can per chance in actual fact compete with Nvidia to your high-cease gaming greenbacks, and hopes are pinned on Navi — the subsequent-gen graphics structure that bought a substantial vote of self assurance when Sony chose it for the upcoming PS5 game console.
But Navi is coming to PCs too, and the firm has staunch revealed when and the achieve: a brand unique desktop GPU family called the AMD Radeon RX 5700 sequence, coming this July. That’s the be aware from the firm’s Computex 2019 keynote in Taipei this evening.
We’ll be getting tubby particulars at an match on June tenth, however here’s what we know obedient now:
- It sounds love Navi is now going to are attempting to be greater publicly is known as “RDNA,” as that’s what the firm’s calling the structure here.
- AMD says the unique structure can present up to 1.25x performance per clock and 1.5x performance per watt in comparison with the old Graphics Core Subsequent (GCN) structure that powered its old Polaris and Vega GPUs (which is imprecise however sounds pretty obedient!)
- The Radeon RX 5700 sequence will maintain GDDR6 memory and strengthen PCIe 4.zero (it’s unclear if both of these will earn a large distinction however newer versions are persistently tremendous)
- At some stage in the match, the firm showed one amongst the RX 5700 sequence GPUs beating an Nvidia RX 2070 by 10 percent in a single game, Uncommon Brigade, which indubitably doesn’t drawl us grand since we don’t know which RX 5700 GPU became broken-down nor how the family performs on moderate across other tool titles.
To me, essentially the easiest real takeaway is that this: Forward of shopping a brand unique GPU, it ought to be value waiting unless June tenth to search out out what AMD in actual fact has up its sleeves. We’ll be bringing you the particulars then.
