Amd’s 7nm RDNA architecture graphics card has been a small success since the launch of the RX 5700 series in July, plus the upcoming RX 5500 and RX 5300 series, the low-end layout is almost, the next step is the real high-end graphics card – 7nm plus process RDNA2 architecture graphics card.
In the previous official roadmap, we already knew that AMD would have rDNA2 architecture after RDNA, which is strictly the true Navi full version, starting with the upgrade of the process to an enhanced version of 7nm plus, with the EUV process expected to increase chip density by 20%.
Second, the RDNA2 architecture is AMD’s first support for hardware light pursuit, which is finally with NVIDIA’s Turing graphics can be positive.
The latest revelations suggest that AMD intends to officially announce the RDNA2 architecture at the CES 2020 show, but the release is still on paper, as is the case with Zen2 and Navi at this year’s CES show, and the actual release is expected to be the Taipei Computer Show in the early part of the year.
It is worth noting that in addition to the 7nm plus process and hardware light-chasing acceleration, the new RDNA2 architecture graphics card will again use HBM2 memory. Although the previous use of HBM2 memory RX Vega series graphics card is not successful, but the main reason is still in the core rather than HBM2 memory, the latter itself is very technical advantage, hope that the performance, energy efficiency of rDNA2 and HBM2 memory can play a 1-plus-plus-2 effect.
However, the biggest problem with HBM2 memory is still low production, high prices, AMD should be in the flagship and professional-grade RDNA2 graphics card will use it, the mainstream graphics card will still be GDDR6 memory.
