AMD “Navi” Graphics Card PCB Pictured
Photos of an upcoming AMD Radeon “Navi” graphics card naked PCB made it to the gain over the weekend. The image displays an attractive long (over 25 cm) board with AMD markings, and a format that doesn’t match with any reference-win PCB AMD launched so a long way. At the coronary heart of the PCB is a sizable ASIC pad that appears to be within 5 % of the dimensions of a “Polaris10” chip. The ASIC is surrounded by eight GDDR6 reminiscence pads. Lets bet they’re GDDR6 taking a scrutinize on the rectangularity of their pin-format in contrast to GDDR5.
The PCB has provision for up to two 8-pin PCIe energy inputs, and an 8+1 section VRM that uses top class ingredients equivalent to rectangular tantalum capacitors, DrMOS, and a high-raze VRM controller chip. There’s also provision for dual-BIOS. The display I/O fully does away with DVI provisioning, and greatest involves the likes of DisplayPort, HDMI, and even USB-C based mostly outputs equivalent to VirtualLink. The fan header appears complex, potentially offering individual fan-stagger control for the cardboard’s multi-fan cooling solution that may resemble that of the Radeon VII. Taking a scrutinize purely on the feature-space on supply, and the incontrovertible truth that “Navi” shall be extra developed than “Vega 2.zero,” we demand this card to be pretty highly effective, going after the likes of NVIDIA’s RTX 2070 and RTX 2060. AMD is expected to unveil this card on the 2019 International CES, this June.
