AMD’s current president and CEO, Lisa Su, confirmed during the company’s shareholder meeting, some rumors circulating in the hardware market.
Lisa Su made it clear that AMD would already be working on a NAVI card, which makes use of the company’s new 7 nm chips. For some time now, rumors indicated that AMD was developing a new model of the new generation of its GPUs. With confirmation from AMD’s CEO, this is the first time that the company has officially approached this equipment.
We can see that the rumors are confirmed every day, giving greater strength to these speculations. This new GPU is likely to replace the current Radeon VII line, which focuses on the high performance segment. Rumors indicate that your codename will be “Navi 12”, But Lisa Su did not reveal more information, just confirmed that the company has been working on the equipment, without giving further details.
Analysts in the area believe that the NAVI cards in the high performance segment (which will be superior to Radeon VII, will probably be called RX 5800 XT) and should be launched later this year.
It is interesting to remember that during Computex 2019, a climate hovered between Lisa Su and Jensen Huang, CEO of Nvidia. Huang criticized Radeon VII GPUs for not supporting the technology Ray tracing. At the time, Lisa Su declined to comment and simply replied that AMD would give more details about its plans later this year. Evidently Ray tracing is very important and AMD probably would not lag behind its competitor. Everything indicates that the new models of their Navi GPUs will support the technology.
Looking forward to the new AMD GPU models?
