We recently heard that AMD’s upcoming Radeon Pro graphics card based on the Big Navi GPU with RDNA 2 graphics architecture has been pictured in a fresh leak. According to the leak, AMD’s next-generation Radeon Pro graphics card is shown completely along with the brand new shroud design that will be featured on the new Radeon Pro content creator lineup.
The existing line-up of the high-end Radeon Pro consists of several Vega GPU-based variants serving the top-end segment. So, it was a much-required update to upgrade the high-end Radeon Pro lineup with the brand new RDNA 2 graphics architecture.
The card will have a brand new shroud design that will incorporate the blue and silver color scheme. It also features a dual-slot design with a blower-style fan that will push air through the internal heatsink comprising several aluminum fins and a vapor chamber.
Coming to the specifications, though the leaked pictures only show the complete design of the card, it does however mentions that the new AMD Radeon Pro graphics card is based on the GLXL A1 AISC.
So, we can assume that the specifications will be similar to that of the Navi 21 GPU. AMD has three Navi 21 SKUs which include the Navi 21 XTX for Radeon RX 6900 XT, Navi 21 XT for Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Navi 21 XL for the Radeon RX 6800. Thus, it’s still unclear as to which specific SKU the Radeon Pro GPU will be using as all three SKUs feature different core configurations.
The card in the leaked images is sporting a 16 GB Samsung memory. It simply means that the Radeon Pro graphics card based on the Navi 21 GPU will retain a 256-bit bus interface and will also carry 128 MB of Infinity Cache. The PCB design is a slightly modified version of the reference AMD Radeon RX 6000 (Big Navi) series graphics cards.
