AMD started the GPU business in 2020 with a mess actually after the launch of Radeon RX 5600 XT. The last-minute price cut by NVIDIA forced the Red team to push a BIOS update to increase the performances, when most of the GPUs were already shipped by the board partners.
However, the company eyes to launch the next-gen RDNA based Navi GPUs in 2020 as NVIDIA too are going to introduce their Ampere GPUs soon in 2020.
If you are confused on the ‘Navi-refresh’ term then all we can that we won’t see refreshed versions of RX 5500, RX 5600, and RX 5700 cards. Su clearly said of adding new cards to the existing lineup, which will eventually be based out of AMD’s next-gen RDNA architecture.
Not much is known about the next-gen RDNA architecture but we can guess it is the same architecture that the upcoming PS5 and Xbox consoles will be featuring. It is also said the next-gen RDNA might have Ray Tracing support as well.
Even though Su has not clearly stated anything about these cards and the architecture but we expect AMD would share more details at its Investor Day on March 5. Recent leaks of Big Navi GPUs also gives hints of AMD’s upcoming launch and the race against NVIDIA’s top tier RTX 2080 GPUs.
