AMD Navi is one of the most anticipated GPUs of this year. The graphics card is expected to provide with four variants including the Navi 16, Navi 12, Navi 10, and Navi 9. Currently, AMD has set up its graphics card portfolio in the desktop with Polaris and Vega. In early February, the release of the Radeon VII is on, which extends the offer upwards, positioned on the Radeon RX Vega 64 and Radeon RX Vega 56. Later, the existing graphics cards will eventually be replaced.

This will be the case, at least with Navi, according to the rumor mill which asks how powerful the fastest offshoots are.

At least the middle class, in the form of the Radeon RX 580 and probably also the Radeon RX Vega models should replace the series.

AMD Navi architecture

Meanwhile, AMD's forthcoming Radeon gaming graphics cards will be based on the new Navi GPU architecture. After having announced its high-end Radeon VII at CES 2019, AMD is now turning its attention to the mid-range market with its 7nm Navi graphics. Navi looks to hone in on AMD’s strength, delivering the most graphics bang for its price point. The next-gen 7nm Navi GPUs will most likely dominate the mid-range market rather than try and go toe-to-toe with Nvidia’s Turing GPUs at the high end. The new 7nm GPU is expected to come in four different flavors with varying specs under the Navi 16, Navi 12, Navi 10, and Navi 9 GPUs, reports UltraGamerz.

AMD's Navi GPUs are set to debut this summer now brings new details in the game. The website is likely to have good sources in the AMD environment since it published information on the Radeon VII at the end of December and showed corresponding rendered images. Also, AMD not only wants to present the Ryzen 3000 processors with Zen 2 cores in the summer but also Navi.

A possible date is the E3 2019, which will open its doors from 11 to 13 June. For AMD, this would be an unusual show to introduce new hardware. However, since the market launch will take place only a month later, in July, the Computex 2019 may be a tick too early in late May. In addition, AMD could separate the ideas of the CPUs and GPUs in time to give the trade press more time to test.

AMD's Chief Technical Officer (CTO), Mark Papermaster, announced at CES 2019 that the desktop graphics card business will be completely renewed this year, making the Radeon VII the high-end star. This, in turn, could be filled in 2020 by a new, larger Navi-offshoot - probably earlier than later. Still, there are a lot of details yet to come regarding the Navi. Stay tuned for more tech updates.
