The race for the next generation of GPUs is starting to heat up. We know that both NVIDIA and AMD are working on their next-gen graphics cards, and a new rumor now says that AMD’s RDNA 2 will be much faster than NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Read on!
The new rumor comes from YouTuber Moore’s Law Is Dead (accurately named). It says that AMD’s flagship GPU chipset based on the next generation RDNA 2 architecture will have a substantial performance gain over current-generation NVIDIA flagship. Also called Big Navi, the new AMD GPU will apparently beat the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti by 40-50%.
The video says that the RDNA 2 platform might even surpass NVIDIA’s Turing in performance. Apparently, the new AMD GPU will have 72 SMs with “two clusters of 36 CUs in each”. There will also be GDDR6 memory, on a 384-bit memory bus. The GPU will be clocked at 2.05 GHz and a boost clock of 2.15 GHz.
If this is true, NVIDIA might have to worry about having 1:1 competition from AMD for the first time. It does seem likely, given how well AMD has done in the recent years in catching up.
AMD’s Navi 2X (RDNA 2) will apparently take things literally and have a 2X boost in performance over the Radeon RX 5700 XT. Navi 3X (RDNA 3) might also go as far as having 3X the performance of Navi 10. All in all, things are looking great for AMD’s next generation of GPUs.
