On July 7 of this year, the 7-nm AMD Navi series graphics cards will hit the market by the first anniversary. This is the beginning of the new RDNA architecture. There are currently three RX 5700/5600/5500 series. AMD’s latest promotional materials say that the performance of the RX 5000 Series graphics cards is 20% faster than N cards.
Is 7nm Navi GPU performance so high?
Yes, but AMD does not compare all N-series graphics cards. Because the current highest-end AMD RX 5700 XT graphics card is rated at more than 3,000 points, which can only be at the same level as NVIDIA RTX 2070 series video cards.
What AMD wants to show in AMD’s latest promotional materials?
In AMD’s latest promotional materials, the official and compared RX 5500 XT, RX 5600 XT, RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT four graphics cards, respectively, GTX 1650, GTX 1660 Ti, RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 four graphics cards performance, The lead ranges from 8% to 20%.
Of course, for NVIDIA, the RTX 2070 graphics card has now dropped out of the top few in the product lineup. Not to mention the RTX Titan graphics card, RTX 2070 Super, RTX 2080, RTX 2080 Super, and RTX 2080 Ti are also high-end.
More importantly, NVIDIA is now not quite accurately replicating the RTX 20 series. The Turing family of graphics cards will soon be discontinued. In September it will be the RTX 30 series of the Ampere family, and the performance and price will be updated.
As for AMD, the RDNA-based RX 5000 series will not be removed from the list. This year there will also be a large Navi series with RDNA2 architecture. The energy efficiency of this architecture will increase by 50%. It also supports hardware-accelerated tracking of light, and the technical level will not be worse than Turing. It is reported that flagship performance is 50% higher than the RTX 2080 Ti, and is expected to be available in September.
