Navi 10 AMD GPU will be arriving in a single and dual GPU with Navi 10 and Navi 10 x2, the dual-GPU variant. The estimated specifications are based on expertise and opinions of tweaktown.com given as:

01: Navi 10 Speculated Specifications

  • GPU: 7nm Navi 10 (128 NCUs)
  • Performance: 50TFLOPs+-half precision, 30TFLOPs single precision
  • GPU clock speeds: Unknown
  • RAM: 16-128GB of “Nexgen Memory”
  • PCIe: PCIe 4.0 x16 host connection
  • TDP: 150-300W
  • Release: 2019+


02: Dual Navi 10 Speculated Specifications

  • GPU: 7nm Navi 10 (128 NCUs) x 2 (256 NCUs total)
  • Performance: 100TFLOPs+-half precision, 60TFLOPs single precision
  • GPU clock speeds: Unknown
  • RAM: 32-256GB of “Nexgen Memory”
  • PCIe: PCIe 4.0 x16 host connection
  • TDP: 150-300W
  • Release: 2019+

Navi 10 AMD GPU lineup as experts say will be a “beast”. Some say that Vega architecture is good for upcoming AMD GPU technology, but, Navi 10 will be a golden ticket. One can only imagine the performance and speed insanity of an AMD machine having a combo of Ryzen CPU and a Vega / Navi 10 based GPU.

Below you can see the roadmap, plotted by AMD, although the slides are leaked, but work done and presentation is legit. AMD plans to go from current 28nm GPU RAM to 7nm of Navi 10. The scalability planned by AMD to achieve by 2019 will be a breakthrough in GPU technology. However, it is always interesting to note that with every shrink in technology comes a great hurdle in performance deliverance.
