AMD has just released the Radeon VII to the market; a graphics card that – apart from the huge amount of VRAM that is equipped with – feels a bit underwhelming compared to the feature list of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080. This release felt more like a stopgap until Navi hits streets and from the looks of it, the first GPUs powered by Navi will be delayed until Q4 2019.
Cowcotland claimed that – according to its sources – NAVI will be delayed until Q4 2019. AMD’s Navi was expected to come out in Summer 2019 but Cowcotland’s sources claim that the best case scenario, right now, is for an October release.
Cowcotland also confirmed the models and prices for the NAVI GPUs. These models are similar to those that AdoredTV revealed a while back, so take them with a grain of salt.
The AMD Radeon RX 3080 will be based on Navi 10, will be equipped with 8GB of GDDR6 and have a TDP of 150W, and its performance will be equivalent of an RTX 2070 or a GTX 1080 for a price of $249.
The AMD Radeon RX 3070 could take advantage of Navi 12, will be equipped with 8GB of GDDR6 and have a TDP of 120W, will perform similarly to an RTX 2060 or a GTX 1070 and will be priced at $199.
Last but not least, the AMD Radeon RX 3060 will be based on Navi 12, will feature 8GB of GDDR6 and have a TDP of 75W, will offer performance similar to an RTX 2050 or a GTX 1060, and will be priced at $129.
