AMD Fans Need to Wait a Little Longer for NAVI

In a few short weeks, AMD will officially launch their 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs at Computex 2019. Many fans are hoping that they may launch the much anticipated Navi GPU at the event as well.

However, now it has been confirmed that fans have to wait a little bit longer. Revealed through a recent earnings call, the next generation Navi GPU will arrive sometime in Q3 2019. Apparently, it will arrive around the same time as the next-generation AMD EPYC server processors.

The most recent video card launches from AMD have been 7nm GPUs using existing architecture. Namely, the Radeon VII which is a 7nm Vega and the RX 590 which is a 7nm Polaris.

Is AMD Finally Releasing an RTX 2080 Ti Killer?

Although AMD did not exactly reveal which specific cards at what price points are launching, they did mention that these video cards will be priced below the Radeon VII according to TechRadar. Which suggests that the Radeon VII will remain their flagship desktop gaming card for now at $699 USD.

If that is true then for anything close to RTX 2080 Ti performance, users have no choice but to wait until at least 2020. Or, they can opt for NVIDIA’s high-end video card line.

    I think most rumours were suggesting a 7th of July launch. 7/7 – to go with all the other 7 branding AMD seems fond of these days.

    Hopefully there will be a preview.

    But I can understand AMD wanting to offset CPU and GPU launches to create maximum press coverage over a period of time.

    Your rational seems reasonable.
    Though I must admit, I was looking forward to an earlier release.

    Still can’t wait for the release of Navi and the upcoming Intel foray into discreet graphics cards.
