New rumors are coming around the launch of the first AMD GPUs based on its RDNA2 architecture, and it is that now the leak of the model numbers suggests that AMD will launch at least six graphics cards, although, in reality, we will see three silicones since each GPU will launch in duplicate.
That’s right, AMD would have decided to make a rather strange move, launch three GPUs powered by GDDR6 memory and those same three GPUs will have a variant with a faster and more expensive memory such as the HBM2 (or HBM2e, the version of the version is specifically unknown. memory), remembering that for now, GDDR6X memory is exclusive to Nvidia.
Navi21 => 0x73AX – 0x73BX
Navi22 => 0x73CX – 0x73DX
Navi23 => 0x73EX – 0x73FX
As we can see, we have graphics silicon assigned to two GPUs, where the first ID is expected to correspond to the GPU with HBM2 memory and the second ID to be related to the GDDR6 memory.
According to rumors, the company’s top-of-the-range GPU, the already known as AMD Big Navi, would offer 5120 Stream Processors RDNA2 combined with 16 GB of memory that could now be GDDR6 & HBM2, although more information is unfortunately not known as well. that the big question is to know what the market position will be for AMD’s top-of-the-range GPU with respect to the new GeForce RTX 30 Series.
The latest rumors surrounding its performance, if we remember them today, after the announcement of the new Nvidia GPUs, are catastrophic: it would be around 15 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti ” in a selection of titles optimized for AMD “, while much more recent rumors indicated that the Big Navi would not be so” Big “. Finally, the announcement in the society of this GPU would finally take place in November.
