No AMD Radeon “Navi” Before October: Report
AMD “Navi” is the firm’s subsequent-skills graphics structure succeeding “Vega” and will leverage the 7 nm silicon fabrication task. It became once initially slated to launch mid-2019, with doable unveiling on the sidelines of Computex (early-June). Cowcotland experiences that AMD has delayed its plans to launch “Navi” your total manner to October (Q4-2019). The prolong potentially has one thing to originate with AMD’s 7 nm foundry allocation for the year.
AMD is now entirely reliant on TSMC to originate its 7 nm product roadmap, which accommodates its entire 2nd skills EPYC and third skills Ryzen processors constant with the “Zen 2” structure, and to a smaller extent, GPUs constant with its 2nd skills “Vega” structure, such because the fair no longer too prolonged ago launched Radeon VII. We save a matter to the first “Navi” discrete GPU to be a lean, snappily-engaging product that succeeds “Polaris 30.” Besides to to 7 nm, it may per chance per chance also incorporate faster SIMD items, increased clock-speeds, and a rather price-efficient memory resolution, equivalent to GDDR6.
