AMD revealed at Computex that its first Navi-based GPUs will launch as the Radeon RX 5700 series in July. These 7nm GPUs will support PCI Express 4.0 and will pack GDDR6 memory. The biggest change perhaps is the move away from GCN. The new graphics chips are based on RDNA, a new architecture that promises 1.25x higher performance-per-clock and 1.5x higher performance-per-Watt versus GCN. At the firm's Computex keynote, a Radeon RX 5700 card was shown beating the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 in a Strange Brigade gameplay demo.
AMD unveiled RDNA, the next foundational gaming architecture that was designed to drive the future of PC gaming, console, and cloud for years to come. With a new compute unit design, RDNA is expected to deliver incredible performance, power and memory efficiency in a smaller package compared to the previous generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. It is projected to provide up to 1.25X higher performance-per-clock and up to 1.5X higher performance-per-watt over GCN, enabling better gaming performance at lower power and reduced latency.
RDNA will power the upcoming 7nm AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards which feature high-speed GDDR6 memory and support for the PCIe 4.0 interface.
During the keynote, Dr. Su showcased the power of RDNA and one of the new AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards in a head-to-head comparison with a RTX 2070 card running a Strange Brigade gameplay demo, beating the competition delivering incredible ~100 FPS gaming.
AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards are expected to be available in July 2019. Learn more at the AMD E3 livestream event on June 10, 2019 at 3 pm PT.
