I got an AMD cpu/card last year but if those prices and specs are true, the stock is sufficient and it comes at the same time that Zen 2 I will defo upgrade again this summer.

TL;DR: Most high end Navi 20 is possibly coming in 2020. AMD will also focus on ray tracing. They won't be yet using the new super-SIMD approach.

Speculated specs of the upcoming Navi cards:

I personally don't want to go higher than my current Vega 56 TDP (which is 180W). So I'll probably get RX 3080 or RX 3090 depending on what's available (assuming the above is even correct).

I've read some rumours of some manufacturing problems, thermal not being what they expected.

new leaks https://hexus.net/tech/news/graphics/130772-sapphire-amd-will-unveil-two-navi-skus-monday-computex/

so add more or less 100 usd to each price, the initial price leak was too good to be true.

my bet is that for example the 3060 will cost the same price as the rx 580 on launch day 220 usd, so here is a dilemma, why should anyone buy navi if you can get a rx 580 for 150 usd, or better yet a rx590 for 215 usd, with the navi 3070 a price of 399 makes sense because a rtx 2070 is 450 usd.

But on the other hand a price about 200 usd makes sense because if it is too cheap they would cannibalize the rx 580 which is still not that old. you just don't canibalize the previous iteration.

Anyway my guess is that still prices will go down, because AMD is pushing the envelope on nvidia prices.

So they are releasing these cards already next week? That's sooner than anticipated.

off topic but this is a nice read

https://seekingalpha.com/article/4265254-amd-david-goliath

who would have guessed, back in the FX days, that AMD will Ryze-n from the ashes? remember the FX was good but compared to Intel it was a mayor failure, bad power efficiency, poor thermal design, etc. AMD was almost bankrupt.

Now the tables have turned, Intel is having problems with their 10nm cpu, and Nvidia also is having issues with their next line-up. Meltdown; Spectre, Zombieload, and whatnot, most of them amd processors are inmune . Intel is done in the server market, now amd is going after nvidia.

as the articles says

QuoteThe story of AMD is a repeat of David and Goliath. Except this time, AMD is going after two Goliaths, and is winning.

winning love it.
