AMD’s Navi GPU is coming to PCs this July as the Radeon RX 5700 series

Slowly but surely, it seems that AMD is moving towards building a graphics card that can truly compete with Nvidia for its high-end games dollars, and hopes are placed on Navi, the next-generation graphics architecture that he got a substantial vote of confidence when Sony chose him for the next PS5 game console.

But Navi will also hit PCs, and the company has just revealed when and where: a new desktop GPU family called the AMD Radeon RX 5700 series, which will arrive in July. That's the news of the company's speech on Computex 2019 in Taipei tonight.

We will get all the details in an event on June 10, but this is what we know now:

  • It seems that Navi will now try to be better known publicly as "RDNA", since that is what The company calls the architecture here.
  • AMD says that the new architecture can provide performance up to 1.25 times per clock and 1.5 times per watt compared to the previous Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture that powered its previous Polaris and Vega GPUs (which it's vague but it sounds pretty good!)
  • The Radeon RX 5700 series will have GDDR6 memory and PCIe 4.0 support (it is not clear if any of them will make a big difference, but the new versions are always nice)
  • During the event , the company showed one of the GPU of the RX 5700 series beating an Nvidia RX 2070 by 10 percent in a single game, Strange Brigade, which really does not tell us much since we do not know ] that RX 5700 GPU was not used nor the performance of the family on average in other software titles

For me, the only real opportunity is this: before buying a new GPU, it might be worth waiting until on June 10 for d to discover what AMD really has in its sleeves. We will bring you the details then.
