At Computex 2019, AMD has finally revealed its first NAVI GPU for PC gamers. This GPU will target mainstream gamers, will compete against the NVIDIA RTX2070, will be called AMD Radeon RX 5700 and will release sometime in July.
According to the red team, NAVI is based on a brand new architecture called RDNA, which is said to be different than GCN. The RDNA architecture offers 1.25X performance per clock compared to GCN and 1.5X performance/watt improvement over GCN. Furthermore, the AMD Radeon RX 5700 will be the first GPU that will support PCIe Gen4.
AMD showcased the Radeon RX 5700 against NVIDIA’s RTX2070 in Strange Brigade during its keynote, claiming that the former will be faster by 10%. Strange Brigade has been always favouring AMD over NVIDIA, so it will be interesting to see how this GPU performs in a variety of games.
The red team stated that it will reveal more details about its 5000 GPU family in E3 2019 (like prices, products and tech specs). The only model we know for now is the RX 5700, though I’m pretty sure that AMD will also release some low-tier models. As for gaming enthusiast market, I can only assume that the red team will keep targeting it with the Radeon VII (and not with a new NAVI GPU) until 2020.
Stay tuned for more!
