Since its confirmation by AMD’s CEO, Lisa Su at last year’s CES the Big Navi is one of the most anticipated Graphic card of the decade.
Scheduled to be released on the 28th of October, 2020 the Big Navi or Navi 2x or RDNA2. Whatever you call them AMD’s next-generation GPUs are promising big performance and efficiency gains, along with feature parity with Nvidia in terms of ray tracing support.
The gaming and hardware enthusiast have very high expectations from this new release by the AMD. And since it’s coming right after the release of the Nvidia’s RTX 30X0 lineup the BIG NAVI has a lot to prove.
With less then a week left in the release there have been Info-Leaks on what we can expect from the new RX6000 series of the GPU’s by AMD.
With these new GPUs the AMD will try to challenge Nvidia Ampere for the graphics card crown.
As confirmed by AMD President and CEO, Dr. Lisa Su confirmed the event by posting the video to Twitter, with the AMD Ryzen 4000 processor launch also teased for 8 October.
But the question is “What do we know of specs of the new Cards?”
What we know is that these cards will be based on the new RDNA2 architecture by AMD.
RDNA 2 at a Glance
- Up to 80 CUs / 5120 shaders
- 50% better performance per watt
- Coming October 28
- Pricing of these cards will have to be almost similar to the Nvidia’s new RTX-30X0 lineup.
Renowned leaker @_rogame claims we can expect Radeon RX 6900 XT (“Navi21”) card with 16GB VRAM, and a less powerful Radeon RX 6800 XT(“Navi22”) with 12GB VRAM.
For comparison, the newly released Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 only sees 10GB VRAM, but its using the speedy DRR4X memory type, while AMD is rumoured to be sticking to the same DRR4 memory from the previous generation.
AMD Big Navi or the Navi21 or the Radeon RX 6900 XT is also suggested to have (via Wccftech) 17.5 TFLOPs of power. This all amounts to a seemingly powerful graphics card which would likely surpass the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti.
Dr. Lisa Su previously confirmed select Big Navi GPUs will be 4K-capable and support high-end features such as ray tracing, making them direct competitors to Nvidia Ampere.
AMD officially revealed the design of AMD Big Navi graphics card on Fortnite, and then followed up with a photo on the Radeon RX twitter account.
The photo reveals that AMD will be using a a 2 x 8-pin PCIe power connection, and so won’t be following Nvidia’s lead in using a new 12-pin PCIe power connector
We can also expect 2x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI and 1x USB-C which can be used for hooking up virtual reality headsets.
