The latest rumor in the ongoing GPU battle coming from the AMD, courtesy of Gamer Meld. As a reminder, please take this rumor with a grain of salt as this is still unconfirmed information. Big Navi has been highly anticipated for now, with interest escalating at CES 2020 this month.
According to the rumor, Navi 21 (also known as Big Navi) engineering samples of the RX 5900 XT are available now in North America. Along with this, specs have apparently leaked for the card. The cards use RDNA2 architecture, a gaming focused process that is further updated from the previous RDNA. 80 internal CUs (compute units) are speculated to be on the card, which is a giant step from AMD’s recent mid-range cards. The current RDNA architecture supports up to 64 internal CUs and only 40 CUs can be found on the RX 5700 XT. A very substantial performance leap is expected with the 5900/5950 series of GPUs. If the specs and performance for these cards are true, the 5900 XT will easily beat the 2080 Ti in nearly all areas. In addition, more AMD GPUs will be released, improving on the foundation of the 5900 XT.
Coupling this rumor with the already confirmed Ryzen 4000 series of CPU, it seems like AMD is gearing up heavily to compete with Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 3000 series of GPUs. Once again, this is only a rumor for now but a lot of this seems to fall in line with the RDNA2 architecture and other information AMD has released since CES 2020.
