It's been a month since AMD introduced the newly built RDNA architecture for Navi GPU. And recently there are rumors of second generation Navi that also use their RDNA, a line of high-end graphics cards from the Radeon RX series will be released next year.
According to RedGamingTech, AMD is currently deploying a project that includes two Navi GPUs, known as Navi 21 and Navi 23. This news comes just days after AMD's CEO confirmed it in one go. Calling capital, they are really cherished and working with the new line of high-end Radeon RX graphics cards.
First and foremost, the source said that these GPUs will be introduced in 2020, next year, and based on the company's own development roadmap, it can be considered that the latest two products will be Based on RDNA architecture system with 7nm + semiconductor technology. That even further boosted the terrible plowing capabilities we've seen on Radeon RX 5700 cards.
And the most anticipated GPU here will of course belong to Navi 23, giving confidence to many AMD fans that this will be NVIDIA's new natural enemy. We have seen many attempts by AMD to always try to defeat NVIDIA with bullets like Radeon R9 Fury X, Radeon RX Vega or Radeon VII, and all of them can't keep up with the distance NVIDIA has left. . However, seeing AMD quite confident with the catch this time, it will be very interesting to see Navi 23's race with GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or whatever NVIDIA can offer in 2020.
In addition, ray-tracing is a very important thing that AMD needs to solve. With the new RDNA architecture system, the company is planning to integrate the hardware onto the card itself to support real-time ray detection. This is really a necessary step to catch up to NVIDIA, because this feature has appeared in their products since last year.
It must also be mentioned whether the memory design in Navi 21 or Navi 23 retains a towering bandwidth like current flagships, or even AMD plays big, switching from GDDR6 memory. to HBM2E? More about HBM2E, this is a new VRAM line, with 8-Hi stacking configuration, 16Gb capacity, reaching speeds of 3.2Gbps. At a glance, the bandwidth that memory provides is 410 GB / s with an HBM2E stack, a 1024-bit bus interface. Samsung said that they can build a configuration of 4 stacks HBM2E that provides a memory of up to 64GB with a bandwidth of 1.64 TB / s, an unbelievable number. Such products are usually only suitable for configuring workstation types because they have to deal with huge workloads. However, they can still appear in high-end graphics cards with the aim of mostly satisfying the passion of fans.
Back in the present before Navi 21 and Navi 23 appeared, AMD owns the Radeon RX 5700 series, with the price advantage being the only thing keeping them balanced in the market with NVIDIA. Better yet, the upcoming products will not be spray bombs, but the successes of the first Radeon RX Navi graphics card they have made.
