AMD Radeon RX 3000 Series Navi GPU Specs Leaked

AMD's upcoming Navi series of graphics cards are set to deliver a major performance leap over their current generation offerings, providing both architectural improvements while also jumping to TSMC's new 7nm process node, securing additional power/performance gains. 

This changes will have a huge impact on the low-end graphics market, where AMD has been supplying Polaris graphics cards for over two years, offering the architectural benefits of Vega on top of the benefits of Navi/7nm, offering plenty of room for hardware innovation. 

Specifications for AMD's planned Navi graphics cards have now leaked via AdoredTV, though we will note that these rumours need to be taken with a grain of salt, especially with regards to GPU pricing. Product pricing can change rapidly for soon to be released products, sometimes happening days or even hours before a product's reveal. 

With Nvidia stomping over AMD RX branding territory with their Geforce RTX series of graphics cards, AMD has decided to fight back with a new 3000-series naming scheme, bringing their Radeon graphics cards in-line with their CPU lineup while complicating Nvidia's naming scheme moving forward. AMD has made similar moves in the past with their 300/400-series motherboard names, which ship with similar names and branding to their Intel-made equivalents.   
Performance-wise, it appears as it AMD doesn't plan to take on the likes of Nvidia's RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti, at least initially. Instead, AMD is targetting the low-end, with XX60, XX70 and XX80 series SKUs, all of which reportedly feature GDDR6 memory and deliver performance numbers which are vastly superior to their 500-series Polaris-based counterparts.

AMD Radeon RX 3000 Series Navi GPU Specs Leaked  

If this leak is true, the performance of AMD's RX 580 and Nvidia's GTX 1060 will soon be relegated to AMD's low-end product tier, creating a strong baseline for new systems. If the pricing listed above also proves accurate, AMD will be onto a winner in the low-end graphics market, as RX 580-grade performance for $129.99 is a steal. 

All that being said, these leaked specs are dubious at best, especially with regards to pricing. It is far too early for AMD to have a firm grasp on what their pricing structure will be for their Navi series graphics cards, as this is usually defined by their competition at the time of launch. I don't expect to see an RTX 2070 competitor sell for $249.99, not then the RTX 2070 retails for $499.

I am probably not alone in thinking that this sounds too good to be true.Quote

Mining = dead, prices = Polaris launch prices.

Again hard to believe, but hey you never know. If they are small diamond shaped dies they'll cost peanuts.Quote

If the top end card is only 15% faster than a Vega 64 I really hope AMD have a high end offering up their sleeves.Quote

Not yet they don't and if they know what's good for them they won't bother.

Polaris was awesome, and their savings were passed on to the customer. If Navi is more of the same at Vega performance they need to do nothing more, IMO.

Fury was a fail, Vega is a fail and both were a complete waste of money IMO. AMD are much better off making bread and butter cards like Polaris IMO. I can't see them competing at the top end again tbh, not if they know what's good for them.

They can't go on risking big fat old power hogs like Vega. They cost loads to develop, loads to make and usually end up far too expensive. The 56 should cost far less than it does, but big and fat and HBM make it unnecessarily expensive for the performance out.

If they can get anywhere near 1080 performance it's a major win.Quote

It’s only a matter of time before AMD adopt the infinity fabric process from their CPUs on their GPUs, once they shrink the GPU die small enough to fit multiple dies on a substrate like their Ryzen CPUs and bring the manufacturing costs way down.Quote
