Huge AMD GPU leak ramps up expectations for Big Navi with beefy boost speedsBy Darren Allan 27 September 2020 AMD Radeon RX 6000 range will put pedal to the metal with boost speeds (Image credit: Future)
AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 range of graphics cards, which will soon be revealed, has been hit with a major leak showing purported details of various GPUs, including the flagship Big Navi . Before we begin, we should firmly bear in mind that these are just nuggets from the rumor mill, so we need to be careful about jumping to conclusions. However, the info seems much more solid than whispers on the GPU grapevine often are, having been drawn straight from the macOS Big Sur 11 beta, complete with a lot of details.See more Graphics cards news Article source: https://www.techradar.com/news/huge-amd-gpu-leak-ramps-up-expectations-for-big-navi-with-beefy-boost-speeds

Navy FlounderThis leak also details further models in the RX 6000 range, and the next graphics card down from Big Navi, known as Navi 22 (Navy Flounder), will be equipped with 40 CUs (2,560 SPs). That’s the same as the existing RX 5700 XT, but of course there’s that major architectural uplift to take into account, plus the fact that the boost clock of Navi 22 is pegged much higher at 2.5GHz. At a rated 12.8 Tflops, this indicates performance close to a third faster than the 5700 XT, delivered within a much tighter power envelope (170W versus 225W). This graphics card should be good for 4K gaming at a more affordable level. Navi 23, the next step down and the entry-level offering, is also mentioned in the leak as having 32 CUs (2,048 SPs), but no information on clock speeds has been dug up in this case, which seems to indicate that this GPU could be further off than Navi 22 and 21. Interestingly, a Navi 31 graphics card is also present, which has certainly raised some eyebrows as you can imagine. It’s based on RDNA 3 and could be a planned refresh of Big Navi (it has the same 80 CUs as Navi 21). AMD’s next-gen graphics cards launch on October 28 , and the firm has hinted that stock levels will be much stronger than what we’ve seen with Nvidia’s recent RTX 3000 releases. So no matter how powerful the new GPUs turn out to be, at least you theoretically stand a better chance of actually being able to buy one.
