Rumored AMD Navi Radeon RX GPU “66AF:F1” Benchmarks Leak Out – Faster at Graphics Throughput, Slightly Behatd at Compute Workloads #Radeon_RXMarch 11, 2019
AMD Navi GPUs are launching this year but we haven’t really got any information on how they would perform and what the specifications would look like until now.
Over at CompuBench, we might have our first listing of an AMD Navi “Radeon RX” part which delivers interesting results.
Now one thing to note is that this device may be based on the Navi GPU architecture or something entirely different hence I am treating this information as a rumor but the results are very interesting so let’s take a look.
Now, this would be true if AMD keeps their CU design similar with 64 shaders per CU and the GPU is, in fact, featuring 20 CUs since CompuBench does has a habit of reporting the compute unit count incorrectly.
When it comes to performance results, the first tests are pure graphics where the rumored AMD Navi GPU posts much higher results and performance numbers compared to the Radeon RX 580 .
In compute benchmarks, however, the card is almost similar to the Radeon RX 580 which is what we had also been expecting since AMD Navi GPUs was tailormade for maximum graphics and gaming performance rather than compute horsepower.
So it’s easy to tell that the desktop PC and notebooks parts would be getting a similar treatment.
The only credible information available right now is that the AMD Navi GPUs will feature the 7nm process node and a revamped architecture that is designed for gaming first.
The GPUs will be used in both upcoming next-generation consoles and will be aiming a launch of 2H 2019 with mainstream gaming being the priority target market.
We will keep you posted once we have more information on AMD’s Next-gen Navi graphics cards.
