This is splitting hairs. There's no way she's going to say something like that, when it turns out that they have no high-end product in the near future.you'll notice that Dr. Su talks about what we should expect, and not what we can expect.
It seems like this is a fairly knowable answer. If someone had some details on current 7 nm pricing, you could pick a price point and scale up Navi 10 performance to that amount of die area.The even more important question is if Navi "kills" a Geforce 2080Ti or the upcoming Ampere
Navi 10 introduced a new microarchitecture, which AMD calls RDNA. However, it also features built-in hardware compatibility with code written for their GCN GPUs, which started with the HD 7000 series, launched in 2012, and (probably) finished with 2019's Radeon VII and their upcoming Renoir APU.What do you mean?
While that is true, I have no doubt that it will beat the 1080Ti by a fair margin, seeing how 5700XT is already very close to 1080Ti level of performance.
A 3 year old graphics card should be a low bar to clear.While that is true, I have no doubt that it will beat the 1080Ti by a fair margin, seeing how 5700XT is already very close to 1080Ti level of performance.
Yes, and - in a rare move for me - I'm not even going to cite one. You can literally go back and read any of the Navi launch coverage and they'll highlight this point.Do you have a source for that?
Yes! AFAIK, it's unprecedented, for a GPU!Seems strange to have two different architectures in a compute unit.
We'll see.I thought the was the whole point of them keeping Vega for the pro market, Navi isn't as good at certain crunching use cases.
One word: consoles. If AMD didn't have Navi, it mightn't have gotten the upcoming console design wins. To the extent that more consoles lie in the future, AMD cannot afford to rest. It must keep trying to catch Nvidia.To be fair, I would rather AMD focus on CPU than GPU.
