When it comes to news about AMD’s upcoming 7nm Navi graphics cards, fans have received nothing but disappointment. But that may be about to change, because we may get to see the cards sooner than we thought.
As reported by TweakTown, AMD is expected to launch the highly anticipated Navi GPUs this year at E3. We already know that Lisa Su is delivering the opening key note for Computex and they already have the 7nm Ryzen 3000 CPUs slated to launch then. This means we’ll get to see AMD’s entire line-up of next-gen processors and graphics cards within the span of a month.
This year’s E3 is shaping up to be quite a storm, first with Sony confirming they won’t be present at the conference, and now AMD planning to launch their graphics cards at the same event. Considering that the next-gen consoles from both Microsoft and Sony are expected to run on upcoming AMD hardware, launching the Navi graphics cards at E3 actually sounds like a good idea.
Earlier, in February, AMD launched the world’s first 7nm graphics card, the Radeon VII. Based on 2nd gen Vega architecture, it comes with a whopping 16 GB of HBM2 memory. Fans had expected a more affordable version of the same with less memory, but we haven’t heard anything on that front either.
AMD has been competing with Intel quite well on the CPU front. But Intel is actively working on its own line-up of dedicated graphics cards to take on both NVIDIA and AMD. Over the past few months, Intel has bagged some key members from both teams to help them create their Xe graphics cards. Going forward, we can expect to see a lot more competition in the GPU segment.
