AMD Big Navi: the official images

AMD Big Navi: the official images

After weeks of leaks distilled on Nvidia’s Ampere cards, AMD is also trying to keep us on tenterhooks and “flip through” everything about its upcoming RDNA2 / Big Navi architecture.

We recently learned that we’ll have to wait until the end of October for AMD to officially launch its card (today we’re speculating on two or three cards).

Surprisingly, it’s at the heart of the Fortnite game that the renderings of the RX 6000 have been unveiled. The brand has provided virtual coordinates to find its graphics card in the AMD Creative Island of the Fortnite game: 8651-9841-1639. This is not the first time AMD has teased you in Fornite, remember.

In the evening, AMD officially confirmed the design but also the naming of its card with the new Radeon logo.

Another view of the card here allows you to see a little more detail:

The official design combined with the renderings discovered in Fortnite allow for a slightly more accurate identification of the future card:

  • The graphics card has four display connectors: 2x DisplayPort (probably 1.4 with DSC), 1x HDMI (probably 2.1) and USB Type-C.
  • The card has up to two 8-pin power connectors. Such configurations offer up to 375W of power.
  • The design of the board, with its 3 fans, seems much more advanced than what can be seen on the reference boards launched by AMD. The level of finish seems to be close to the latest Nvidia, in the same spirit as what we could have had with the Radeon VII.

Of course, all this marketing is fun but at this moment, nothing comes to help us to position the performances of the future RDNA2 cards in front of the RTX 3000.

The most optimistic envisage a card capable of rivaling the RTX 3080, while others think that AMD could only match the former high-end (RTX 2080Ti) of the chameleon, which would make the high-end Big Navi a competitor to the RTX 3070. No doubt this news will start to fade until 28/10!
