AMD’s next-gen RDNA 2 graphics cards to feature higher clock speeds and improved IPC

AMD has once again hinted on the performance improvements we can expect from their next-gen RDNA 2 architecture of gaming GPUs. This comes via a recent AMD investor PowerPoint presentation.

AMD’s upcoming RDNA 2 silicon graphics cards are highly anticipated by Gamers. AMD once again confirms that we can expect at least 50% boost in performance/watt over the previous gen RDNA architecture, more performance per clock, along with improved and enhanced GPU and Mem core clock speeds.

AMD also assures an improved performance-per-Clock (IPC) with the new RDNA 2 silicon, which means faster graphics work per clock cycle and more graphics horsepower, and also an increase in clock speeds as well.

We know that Sony’s next-gen PlayStation 5 console is going to feature high GPU clock speeds (2.23Ghz), so we can expect the same from RDNA 2 graphic cards.

With all these improvements AMD promises higher performance and better efficiency with the RDNA 2 architecture. This is great news for Team Red if they can manage to squeeze out every ounce of performance from this enhanced RDNA 2 silicon.

We know AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture will have support for hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing, Variable Rate Shading (VRS) and Mesh Shading. And Microsoft’s Xbox series X next-gen consoles are also going to leverage these features, so Gamers can expect better performance and value from the next gen RDNA 2 cards.

Hello, my name is NICK Richardson. I'm an avid PC and tech fan since the good old days of RIVA TNT2, and 3DFX interactive "Voodoo" gaming cards. I love playing mostly First-person shooters, and I'm a die-hard fan of this FPS genre, since the good 'old Doom and Wolfenstein days. MUSIC has always been my passion/roots, but I started gaming "casually" when I was young on Nvidia's GeForce3 series of cards. I'm by no means an avid or a hardcore gamer though, but I just love stuff related to the PC, Games, and technology in general. I've been involved with many indie Metal bands worldwide, and have helped them promote their albums in record labels. I'm a very broad-minded down to earth guy. MUSIC is my inner expression, and soul. Contact: Email
