It has almost been one month since the launch of AMD’s first Navi GPUs but it looks like there is more to come in the future. During an investor Q&A, AMD CEO, Lisa Su, seems to have confirmed that ‘high-end’ Navi GPUs will be coming down the line.
The RX 5700 series is already quite competitive against the RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 graphics cards from NVIDIA. When asked about 7nm high-end NAVI and mobile 7nm CPUs, Lisa Su said to “expect that our execution on those are on track and we have a rich 7nm portfolio beyond the products that we have already announced”. With that in mind, it looks like the Radeon team is indeed working on a more powerful version of Navi.
As always though, timing will be hugely important, particularly if AMD is targeting RTX 2080 or RTX 2080Ti performance. Nvidia’s two high-end Turing GPUs have almost been on the market for a full year, so Nvidia will also have next-gen chips in the works at this point.
So for now, we will just have to wait and see, but it seems that an RX 5800 series or RX 5900 series of GPUs is likely.
