Amds new navi lineup release dates specifications comparisons
The new Navi GPU has finally arrived and hit the shelves with impressive performance figures. The new series currently has the 50th anniversary editions of the RX 5700 XT, Rx 5700 and RX 5700 XT, but now there are rumors that 5600, 5800 and even 5900 graphics cards may be introduced.
The three cards we know represent the new architecture of RDNA GPUs and will be the first card designed to replace GCN since 2012. Dr. Lisa Su said the new architecture is a new look for graphics cards and will redefine their GPU, just as Zen did with its CPU series. Due to the new CPU released on July 7,
AMD has been the main news. The new Ryzen chip series has taken the market by storm, knocking Intel out of the top spot in the CPU hierarchy for the first time in decades. If the Navi product line (also released July 7) has similarities to its new CPU series, then something big will appear in the AMD GPU cabinet.
With that said, we already know a lot about the new Navi GPU and the features it offers. In the next article, we will discuss everything we currently know about Navi and how the new card will affect consumers who want to build gaming equipment in today's market.
Let's take a closer look at the recently released RX 5700 XT, RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition and RX 5700 models. The
RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, or 5700 XTAE, is the most powerful of the three graphics cards released under the new Navi lineup. Like all Navi cards, 5700 XTAE has reached 7nm and is accompanied by a new RDNA architecture. The architecture comes with a set of new instructions that are more suitable for more efficient rendering of graphics effects, and a multi-level cache hierarchy to reduce the latency of faster responsive games. The
5700 XTAE has a unique design with a golden decorative cover and Dr. Su Lisha's signature. It is Navi's current flagship card, and its main frequency is 75MHz faster than 5700 XT. It has three display ports and an HDMI input. Like other Navi cards, the 5700 XTAE is a blower card that draws in air through a fan and expels hot air from the back, helping to lower the temperature of the computer more effectively.
5700 XT is almost 5700 XTAE, but some Mhz slower, 75 to be precise. However, some subtle differences have little impact.
At normal speed, the 5700 XT has a base clock of 1,605MHz and a boost clock of 1,905MHz. AMD has implemented a new indicator, 1.7555MHz game clock. AMD stated that the actual playback speed of the card will be between the base clock and the game clock. The
design is very similar to the 5700 XTAE, but without the elegant gold trim or Su logo. The last card in the
current range is the RX 5700, which is also the less powerful RX 5700 XT. The 5700 was released at the same time as other graphics cards, and is equipped with the same stylish new technology and architecture. The
5700 has 36 computing units, 2,304 stream processors, and an increased clock speed of 1,725, which is nearly 200MHz lower than XT. It is also equipped with 8GB GDDR6 VRAM on a 256-bit bus, which can drive 65 render output units. The
Navi 10 GPU is the first RDNA graphics processor equipped with the new AMD architecture. For AMD fans across the hardware board, this is an exciting time. We've discussed some of the specs above, but for those who want all the details, the chart below will show exactly what they offer.
As you can see, there is not much difference between the three cards, except for the price. The biggest difference is the clock speed, the most obvious being the drop from 5700 XTAE to RX 5700 (1680Mhz - 1465Mhz). All
graphics cards are built on the Navi 10 architecture, they all use the same 7nm process and each have 10.3 billion transistors. They all have 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM and 256-bit bus width.
So what does all this mean for the performance of these new cards? How will they actually cope with real-world situations?
Let's take a closer look at the new Navi architecture we've heard of. If you are like me and like to stay up-to-date with the latest technology, then you will be aware of AMD's efforts to keep up with Nvidia products. This has been the case for over half a year, AMD always had to use 50-60% more power than Nvidia to achieve similar performance stats. However, with massive redesign from AMD, this may change. AMD has been quoted many times that the new architecture is truly unique, rather than an improvement on the existing GCN unit. Whether this is true is a difficult question to answer.
RDNA has a new dual compute unit design with some shares, including the L1 cache. Previously, GPUs from the AMD and Intel fields were equipped with L0 cache, L2 cache, and VRAM which acts as a large L3 cache. For example, the CPU does not have L0 cache, but it has L 1 / L2 / L3 cache. AMD said that the L1 cache helps to significantly reduce latency and performance, thus increasing efficiency.
We will also see improvements in wavefront and incremental color compression (DCC), which will further reduce latency, increase efficiency, and improve overall performance.
AMD has also implemented its new "Game Clock" on the new series of Navi cards. This is a conservative estimate
On the impulse clock.
I heard that these new cards have adopted some great new technologies. This is all refreshing, but in the end, people want to know how this works in the real world.
I think it's safe to say that the 5700 XT was released in direct competition with the GeForce RTX 2070. Initial benchmarks show that the 5700 XT has its number too. Similarly, the RX 5700 competes directly with the 2060 and once again largely defeated its competitors. The single-threaded performance of the
Navi card is undoubtedly the biggest performance improvement. When it comes to GPUs, you usually don’t talk about it, this is more of the CPU field. However, having said that, the speed at which the GPU can process its workload is critical to the overall multi-threaded nature of the GPU.
AMD claims that compared with the next-generation GCN, the number of instructions per clock for the new RDNA architecture has increased by 25%. They even say that the overall performance of the new card will increase by 50% while still using the same overall power and settings. The number shown in
was generated from a PC running Part 2 1440p, so there is no number this time.
power consumption has also improved, and the current figures show that compared with Vega 64, the performance per watt has increased by 1.5 times, even when using the most demanding GDDR6 VRAM.
For gaming enthusiasts, AMD is very friendly to benchmark comparison with 5700 XT's competitor 2070. The number of results is quite impressive.
5700 XT lost to 2070 in only two games (Tomb Raider and Civilization 6). The 5700 XT wins anywhere else, even in Battlefield 5 with a 22% improvement.
and not just 5700 will receive the Navi badge. Recently, it was reported that we may see more than 20 Navi-branded cards. Sapphire, AMD's largest plug-in board partner, has registered an additional 20 trademarks with ECC. The following list shows all recently registered trademarks:
Now, before we get dizzy, it's worth mentioning that not all of these trademarks will be used on actual GPUs. This is just one of the ways AIB can cover your tracks by recording all possible combinations on the 5000 series.
This is all we know about the Navi GPU series. We are currently compiling our own benchmark data to understand how it responds to 2070 in the real world.
Having said that, what do the current numbers mean for people who want to build PCs in today's market?
Well, first of all, it will make your life more interesting or more stressful, depending on how you look at it. Before I owned Nvidia, it was the GPU of choice. However, now AMD has given us a real decision and messed up things.
5700 XT is an excellent graphics card, it seems to beat its competitors and the price is very reasonable. It will be very interesting to see how Intel will develop in the next 12 months, especially when AMD seems to have no problems.
