Nvidia released a new Ampere series of graphics cards, but there has been no news from the AMD camp.
AMD’s next-generation Big Navi graphics card (Radeon RX 6000 series) will be made based on the RDNA 2 architecture and TSMC’s 7nm process. Its flagship model is compliant with NVIDIA’s next-generation sub-flagship RTX 3080, and its power consumption is lower than RTX 3080. (It is weaker than RTX 3080 at 275W, and it can tie the 320W RTX 3080 at 300W).
In addition, the well-known YouTuber @coreteks also stated that the graphics card will use 16GB of video memory (GDDR6), and there is no consumer version of HBM2 for the time being. And the graphics card was originally priced at US$599, but after watching the Nvidia’s new product launch, AMD resolutely decided to lower it by another US$50. Therefore, the offer price may be set at US$549, which is lower than the NVIDIA RTX 3080. 150 dollars.
According to @Locuza_, the complete Big Navi will have 80 computing units (CU) or 40 WGP computing units, and the total number of cores is 5120. IT Home understands that since AMD’s ray tracing performance has not been announced, it is impossible to compare hardware parameters such as the ray tracing core.
