A lot of leaks and rumors suggested that AMD Navi GPUs will launch in July. Now, AMD has officially confirmed that AMD Navi GPU will release in 2019.
During the recent earnings call for AMD, the company confirmed that AMD Navi GPU will release in Q3 2019. This means the AMD Navi GPU release date will be between July and September.
Not only that, AMD also announced Ryzen 3000 CPUs for Q3 2019 release. Meaning, AMD’s both 7nm CPUs and GPUs will launch between July and September. Reportedly, AMD will launch Ryzen 3000 CPUs at Computex 2019.
According to leaked Navi specs, the GPU will be somewhere between AMD RX Vega 56 and Nvidia GTX 1080. Furthermore, the GPU will cost $259 and considering GTX 1080 costs way more, this is quite reasonable. Furthermore, the GPU features 1.8 GHz or 1800 MHz boost clock and 150W of TDP.
Speaking of leaks, alleged Navi GPU benchmarks leaked online recently. According to benchmark, Navi beats RX 580 in all of the gaming benchmarks but falls short compared to RX Vega 64.
Navi GPU won’t just be available for PC gaming but is also the GPU that will power PlayStation 5. Not only that, PS5’s Navi GPU is capable of rendering Real-Time Ray Tracing, a feature that is only available for Nvidia RTX GPUs for now.
Furthermore, PS5 APU is based on the 3rd gen 7nm Zen 2 microarchitecture meaning next-gen Xbox, presumably, Xbox Anaconda will feature roughly the same specs.
As for AMD Desktop APUs, PC enthusiasts are waiting for AMD to announce the Ryzen 3 3200G and 3400G. While that doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon but, some lucky people have already got their hands on both APUs.
Chiphell user posted images revealing that he/she has gotten hands on the desktop APU. Not only that, the user also revealed the specs for both Ryzen 3200G and Ryzen 3400G.
Also, this isn’t the only leaks regarding these APUs as previously images for both APUs appeared online. According to the user, he/she has 8 units of these AMD APUs.
