AMD is apparently preparing a next-generation graphic code called the Navi 23, which is internally called "NVIDIA Killer" and is due out next year. We heard whispers about this Navi 23 GPU in August this year, but we only received confirmation that it actually existed about a week ago when it appeared in the Linux code dump.  AMD Navi 23 & # 39; NVIDIA Killer & # 39; GPU First to Support Ray Tracing Hardware
Thanks to a recent Linux driver, we know that the Navi 23 is just one of three different GPUs that AMD builds on TSMC's 7nm + technology node and RDNA2 gaming graphics, the rest are Navi 21 and Navi 22.
Based on a number of specific patents that AMD registered as well as whispers in the industry and AMD's own official roadmap, DNA architecture the second generation is set to be the first company that fully supports hardware-accelerated ray tracing.
However, according to this particular so-called. urce, only the Navi 23 is internally called the "NVIDIA Killer". That's because the Navi 23 is said to be the big Navi GPU that will drive NVIDIA's competition into the high-end segment, where the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti currently sit undeniably.
Here I would like to be careful as this is only hearing and should be taken with a grain of salt. Companies don't usually call one of their products a competition killer, and in the rare case they do, it's often a hit and miss. Big Navi is definitely set to compete and add value to the high-end graphics market, but don't expect it to kill anything, at least. It's too early to tell how competitive this GPU will be. Especially with the Ampere on the corner of NVIDIA, which seems to have brought quite a big generational leap from Turing.
RDNA2 Navi 23 GPU to Capture NVIDIA's Competition in High-End Next Year It is expected to bring full hardware accelerated ray tracking as well as many new architectural improvements.
which, thanks to some recently published patents we know, could include:
– Variable speed shading
– More efficient mixed precision calculations
– Smarter & faster caches
– Stable calculations and higher hourly instructions
– More sophisticated voltage regulation for higher clock rates speeds among many other enhancements
AMD Executive Director Lisa Su Pot claims the latest revenue from the company ca We will focus on our next-generation products next year, such as architecture, not the manufacturing hub. 5nm is years away from prime time readiness and 7nm is here to stay for quite some time. AMD has already undergone the most difficult part of the transition process, namely the launch of the first set of new assembly products to market successfully, which the company did with the Ryzen 3000 and Navi series this year.
Engineers can now focus on making major architectural changes, and we expect to see that next year for both the processor and GPU. Although this means that AMD will not have the same leadership in processes that both Intel and NVIDIA have enjoyed this year. But fortunately for the Navi 10 company is a relatively small GPU and there is room to create a much larger and more powerful GPU still with 7nm technology.
The number will be in power management to get the most out of one defined 250W budget. The Navi 10 is already a thirsty GPU because of its relatively small size – it's 251mm² (RX 5700 XT) and draws as much energy as the 545m2 TU104 (RTX 2080) – and the real challenge for the red team will be to bring their architectural energy closer much closer to parity with NVIDIA to have any real chance of competing not only with the high end, but against NVIDIA's new 7nm Ampere graphics card next year.
One thing is for sure, 2020 is going to be exciting and we can't wait to see both the CPU and CPU markets shake.
