Amd rdna 2 gpus release

AMD recently announced that they are still expected to launch Zen 3 CPU and RDNA 2 graphics cards later in 2020.

AMD CEO Lisa Su spoke at the AMD earnings conference and confirmed that "end of 2020" is still the planned release date. Although the date of

is uncertain, it seems to coincide with the rumor that the Ryzen 4000 desktop CPU will be released in September. Rumors also indicate that RDNA 2 graphics cards will be reduced in price in October or November. AMD’s

Zen 3 processor will use TSMC’s new and improved 7nm + architecture, which we expect will be a huge performance improvement over the previous Zen 2 CPU. According to reports,

Zen 3 processors can provide up to 1015% IPC gain, a higher number of cores and faster clock speeds. The

RDNA 2 release and the "Big Navi" graphics card debate have been one of the most anticipated news of this year.

This shows that AMD is ready to welcome the world of ray tracing support, and it looks like AMD will keep up with Nvidia's best Turing GPU in the future.

rumors suggest that AMD's "Big Navi" GPU will provide twice the power and performance of the Radeon RX 5700 XT. The chip size of this flagship card called Radeon RX 5950 XT is reportedly 505 square millimeters, while the chip size of the RX 5700 XT is 251 square millimeters.

In theory this should mean that the new GPU should increase the number of compute units from 40 CU to 80 CU. However, we may have to wait a long time to determine if this is true.

With the arrival of a new generation of graphics cards this year, we all have high hopes for ray tracing. However, according to the PTT Forum, only certain variants of the RDNA 2 GPU will provide ray tracing support.

According to reports, only AMD's high-end Navi 2X graphics card can get ray tracing processing. This is because AMD's standard and low-end options do not support the hardware necessary for ray tracing to run at the optimal frame rate.

Although this may disappoint some people, it may not be a big surprise. Previously, Nvidia only included ray tracing support on its high-end graphics cards. So it makes sense for AMD to do it. It seems that AMD divides its RDNA 2 GPU lineup into two categories: one with ray tracing and one without. The

category with ray tracing capabilities will be suitable for graphics enthusiasts and those who have the budget to buy high-end AMD GPUs. However, we hope that even the major version without ray tracing is impressive and worth updating.

We will be interested to see if AMD’s claims on performance improvements are true, including the boast that RDNA 2 will result in a 50% increase in performance per watt over the previous RDNA architecture.

If we hear more about the upcoming "Big Navi" CPU and GPU, we will keep you informed.
