The wait for the debut of the next generation of AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards is very high. The two companies are decidedly buttoned on the technical characteristics of the new GPUs, however there is not much missing from the debut of the first products which, for both companies, should coincide with the month of September.
As discussed in other articles, AMD has been planning the launch of the first cards based on RDNA 2 (Big Navi) architecture for some time – the first rumors date back to this winter – while NVIDIA is ready to respond with the GeForce RTX 3000 (GPU Ampere) which will have as a reference the now infamous GeForce RTX 3090.
The latest news in this regard come from the portal coreteks.tech which relies on sources close to the Asian partners of AMD graphics card manufacturers. According to what reported, the company would have started to disclose the technical details of Big Navi, however, reducing the performance compared to what was said so far.
Assuming that AMD had not provided official data regarding the performance of the Big Navi GPU with RDNA 2 architecture (codenamed Sienna Cichlid), initially there was talk of a product that would have been 50% faster than a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, placing itself in tops the consumer graphics card market.
The new data instead report a GPU that will be 15% faster than the current flagship model NVIDIA, and which therefore could battle with the next GeForce RTX 3080, leaving the top step of the podium still for NVIDIA and the next GeForce RTX 3090.
We underline that at the moment there are no official confirmations, however, the downside foresees that the new AMD flagship graphics card will be decidedly cheaper than the NVIDIA counterpart, thus balancing with an excellent performance / price ratio. As anticipated at the opening, we have to wait for September, but we are sure that from here to then there will be other rumors or advances from the two producers.
