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

AMD CEO Lisa Su spoke on AMD's earnings conference call and confirmed "late 2020" is still the expected release date.

Although this is not a definitive date, it seems to coincide with the rumor that the Ryzen 4000 desktop CPU will be released in September. Rumors also suggest that RDNA 2 graphics cards will drop in price in October or November. The AMD Zen 3

processor will be built with TSMC's new and improved 7nm + architecture, which we hope will greatly improve performance over the previous Zen 2 CPU. The

Zen 3 processor will reportedly provide up to 1015% IPC gain, higher number of cores, and faster clock speed. The launch of

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

shows that AMD is ready to welcome the world of ray tracing support, and it looks like AMD will face Nvidia's high-end 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. It is said that the flagship card called Radeon RX 5950 XT will have a matrix size of 505 square millimeters, while the matrix size of the RX 5700 XT is 251 square millimeters.

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

With the advent 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 mainstream and low-end options do not support the hardware required for ray tracing to run at the optimal frame rate.

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

ray tracing category is 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 upgrading.

We will be interested to see if AMD's claims about 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'll keep you posted.
