Interpreting AMD GPU chips is not easy, because it is complex to face a variety of complex numbers, code names, and different products and applications. In terms of architecture, AMD in recent years has Polaris (Polaris), Vega (Weaving Star), Navi (Cassiopeia) three times, they also have their own architectural sequence numbers, respectively, the gfx800 series, gfx900 series, gfx1000 series.
Of course, each architecture has a core of different sizes, they also have their own numbers, codenames, and the AMD GPU core number, code number part, are the smaller the number, the larger the core size, that is, the reverse order.
Having said that, in order to introduce several AMD GPU cores that have been discovered and confirmed today, one is “Van Gogh Lite” (Van Gogh Lite), the architecture number gfx1040, which is clearly part of the Navi series of RDNA architectures, and should be the second generation RNDA architecture.
“Van Gogh” has been seen before, with the architecture number gfx1033, apparently larger and identity-obsessed.
Guess they may all be used for the future Ryzen APU – to know that the current Ryzen APU integration or Vega GPU architecture, although there are some RDNA architecture display technology, multimedia technology, but after all, the architecture has a generation gap, but also a bit “behind the times”, if you can advance to the Navi architecture will obviously go hand in hand with the independent graphics card.
Another new core is “Navi 23”, with architecture number gfx1032, slightly higher than Van Gogh gfx1033, which has previously been known to Navi 22 gfx1032 and Navi 21 gfx 1030.
They are definitely the second-generation Big Navi core, the RDNA 2 architecture, which, unsurprisingly, should be the Radeon RX 6000 series.
In addition, there are currently three versions of Navi 10, Navi 12, Navi 14, the architecture number is gfx1010, gfx1011, gfx1012, the corresponding products are RX 5700/5600 series, PRO 5600M (Apple custom), RX 5500 series.
