AMD is the one to introduce 7nm GPUs and CPUs into the market. While AMD is performing well in the CPU market, things are different in the GPU sector. According to Nvidia, its 12nm Turing architecture is still the most efficient GPU on the planet.
AMD’s 7nm Navi architecture is supposed to be more power efficient compared to Nvidia Turing architecture. According to Nvidia, Turing architecture’s performance per watt advantage is quite evident even with its 12 nm process node.
Over Pascal it is up to 1.4x our efficiency. If I had to draw on here. We don’t like to revel in our competition. But I will say there’s another GPU that was talked about that is roughly 2070 performance. The power of that device is right about here. If I had to draw where the Radeon VII might be it’s roughly 2080 perf. And it’s somewhere out here for power.
According to AMD, 7nm process node allows its RDNA GPU architecture to be 30% more efficient compared to the previous one. However, Nvidia’s claims for its 12nm Turing architecture paint a different picture.
On the other hand, AMD claims Radeon RX 5700 to be 10% faster than Nvidia RTX 2070. However, it remains to be seen if the Navi GPU will be able to handle rel-time ray tracing or not.
AMD isn’t really talking about the Ray Tracing support for its Navi GPU. Given that PlayStation 5 uses Navi as a graphics solution and supports real-time Ray Tracing, the possibility of Navi to support ray tracing is really high.
In the CPU sector, AMD is on its way to dominating the market. AMD unveiled its lineup of Ryzen 3000 CPUs including the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, Ryzen 7 3800X, Ryzen 7 3700X, and 6 Core Ryzen 5 desktop CPUs.
Ryzen 9 3900X comes with 12 Cores/24 threads, 70 MB cache, 3.8 GHz of base clock, and 4.6 GHz of boost clock and AMD is asking $499 for the CPU.
Not only that, the CPU managed to outperform the Intel Core i9-9900K which features 8-Cores/16 Threads and 5.0 GHz boost clock for all of its cores. This is just one of the reason why AMD won Computex 2019.
