According to AMD’s 2019 Q4 financial results, revenue from the computing and graphics business jumped 70%, apparently with a significant contribution to the new 7nm Ryzen 3000 series CPU, while the 7nm process’s RDNA architecture RX 5000 series graphics card sales also increased by double digits. However, AMD still owes a light in the GPU market, especially in the high-end graphics card market of more than 3000 yuan.
The current RX 5700, RX 5600 and RX 5500 series graphics cards use the 7nm RDNA architecture, although the energy efficiency compared to the 14nm GCN architecture, but the horizontal comparison of the 12nm Turing GPU, RDNA graphics card in terms of performance, energy efficiency gap, And not supporting light pursuit is a hard wound, which depends on the RDNA2 architecture graphics card of the 7nm plus process.
RDNA2 graphics is not far away, AMD CEO Su Zifeng has previously said in interviews that this year will be the introduction of the just-powerful Radeon graphics card, especially the flagship Big Navi, the leaked model display will be RX 5950 XT, RX 5950, RX 5900, RX 5800 XT, etc. The big Navi specifications are also leaked, with up to 80 sets of CU units (5120 stream processors), twice the RX 5700 XT, with a core area of up to 505mm2 and expected to achieve RTX 2080 Ti.
The question is when will AMD launch the RDNA2 architecture graphics card of the big navi family? The release may be at this year’s Taipei Computer Show, but AMD has made several moves ahead, including a meeting of financial analysts that begins on March 5th, when AMD is likely to formally announce the RDNA2 architecture.
According to Mithun Chandrasekhar, Radeon’s product line director, AMD will then share news of the new generation of graphics cards under development, stressing that “the Radeon 5000 series graphics cards have covered 90 percent of the current needs of gamers. This is the reason there is no 4K game graphics card, because the mainstream is still 1080p, 1440p resolution. So do we have to pursue 4K and break the 4K record? Absolutely, that’s all I can say now. “
All in all, according to Mithun Chandrasekhar, AMD’s new generation of Radeon graphics will rewrite the new 4K game rules, apparently for high-end platforms, meaning big Navi will be ready to appear at the analyst conference in March as soon as possible.
Interestingly, in March there is nVIDIA GTC conference, 7nm ampere graphics card is also said to be officially released at the conference, RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3080 graphics card is coming, do not know AMD, NVIDIA two new generation flagship optical pursuit graphics card will wipe out what kind of spark?
