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.

on paper on the shelves it will take a bit more.

Yeah, i read Q3. It could be July like it could be September.

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.

SPECS LEAKED

QuoteNavi 10 or 12 (whatever this is) should feature 40 compute units each of which will contain 64 stream processors, as well as 8 shader engines. Each of these shader engines will pack 5 compute units and a raster back end, which is a big deal. With previous GCN-based GPU architectures the raster back end would comprise of 16 ROPs, so we don't know if Navi 10/12 will feature 128 ROPs, or if things have changed under the hood with Navi (which I think has happened). This also means we should see future Radeon graphics cards with more than 4096 stream processors, something that has been capped since the introduction of the Fiji GPU architecture in 2015. We are expecting 8GB of GDDR6 memory on the Radeon RX 3080 while there are options for AMD to use up to 16GB of GDDR6 on future Navi-based Radeon cards.
