There have been speculations regarding AMD’s upcoming flagship Navi GPUs in 2020 and we have some solid leaks to justify the speculations as well. It has been a year since AMD has launched their last flagship GPU – the Radeon Vega VII and to give a tough fight to the market leaders NVIDIA, AMD is surely planning something in 2020.
Already the Red team has launched their new Ryzen 4000 mobile processors at CES this year and it seems they are planning big on the graphics front as well. A mysterious AMD RX 5950XT was recently spotted getting EEC certification by the tipster Komachi and there we see four new AMD GPUs.
AFOX who is a board partner of both AMD and NVIDIA has submitted multiple GPUs including the flagship Radeon RX 5950XT, Radeon RX 5950, Radeon RX 5900 and the Radeon RX 5800 for EEC filing. Now the question arises whether this is the promised “Big Navi” GPU or not.
In this CES 2020, Dr Lisa Su, CEO of AMD had mentioned that the Big Navi is happening soon:
A few days ago we had seen an Open VR benchmark that shows an unknown AMD GPU beating NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, it could be an unreleased graphics in an external GPU enclosure or it could be the Radeon GPU running in CrossFire or the speculated Big Navi.
If we go by the OpenVR benchmarks, we see a 15% better performance than NVIDIA’s flagship: the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. These Navi GPUs in 2020 might be based on 2nd Generation RDNA Navi GPUs as well with hardware-level integration to support ray-tracing.
