AMD will launch Navi Pro and Navi XT to compete with RTX 2060 and 2070

An employee of Sapphire is believed to have spoken out loud to Chinese media. On a Chinese blog you can read an interview, in which you can read details about AMD's Navi generation. There are supposed to be two CPUs next Monday. Navi XT as a fully enabled CPU and Navi Pro as a partially disabled CPU. With the two CPUs AMD would like to compete with the RTX 2060 and the RTX 2070.

Navi Pro

Navi XT would be faster than an RTX 2070, but with a price of $ 499 still equally priced. Navi Pro would perform between the RTX 2060 and 2070 in, but would get a price of $399. This is $50 more than the RTX 2060, but for better performance. It all depends on the price and performance if this is going to be a competitive product.

What the employee also told us is that there will be no new high-end card for the time being. Radeon VII will remain the top model for the time being, because Navi could not just be scaled up to a larger chip. At the same time, according to the source, Navi does not have any hardware on board for raytracing. Both a new top model and raytracing hardware are not expected until next year.

Sapphire itself would be working on its own version of Navi. It would come with a "Toxic" map that has water cooling. The language barrier doesn't make it entirely clear, but we probably see that map wrapped up in the picture. There is a reservoir of poisonous green liquid, which is placed on a silver Radeon video card.

AMD is releasing Navi in the third quarter. However, the Sapphire employee says that we will see the maps on Monday 27 May. Then Lisa Su holds the opening keynote of Computex.
