Internet is full of leaks and rumours, and today we have the leaked details of AMD’s smallest RDNA 2 GPU, the Navi 24, which is codenamed Beige Goby. AMD’s Navi 23 ‘Dimgrey Cavefish’ GPUs are yet to surface and show us their real-world performance, but we expect the company to launch them soon.
However, as we wait for the Navi 23 GPU, the Navi 24 ‘Beige Goby’ GPU has leaked out along with its initial specifications. Since it is the smallest chip in the RDNA 2 family, the Navi 24 GPU will find several use cases within desktop/mobility Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards and Ryzen APUs.
According to the specifications, AMD’s Navi 24 RDNA 2 GPU will feature a single SDMA engine along with 2 shader arrays for 8 GPS and a maximum of 16 Compute Units. The Navi 23 GPU will offer 2048 stream processors in 32 compute units.

The GPU also contains 128 KB of L1 cache, 1 MB of L2 cache, and also 16 MB of Infinity Cache (LLC). The AMD Navi 24 RDNA 2 GPUs are also leaked to feature a 64-bit bus interface and be sported on low-end Radeon RX 6500 or RX 6400 series parts.
For now, there is no launch date for the RDNA 2 based Navi 24 GPUs, and it seems that it will be a long time for it to surface in the retail market. AMD is yet to release it’s RDNA 2 for mobile platforms, and Navi 23 is expected to launch in a few weeks.
