AMD 7nm "Navi" GPUs To Offer Similar Performance As NVIDIA GTX 1080 at $250 Price Point
AMD is expected to launch the 7nm Navi GPU that will serve as the successor of the currently available AMD Radeon RX 500 Series. The said GPU is anticipated to deliver a GeForce GTX 1080 or Radeon RX Vega 64 levels of performance at a very reasonable price.
AMD 7nm NAVI GPU Release Date
The Navi is expected to be a mainstream chipset rather than an enthusiast GPU, which was in contrast to what AMD fans are expecting. Reports are suggesting that the American multi-national company won’t have anything that’s faster than its existing offering Radeon RX Vega 64 between 2018 up until the end of 2019.
With that being said, the focus is decently going to be on levitation the performance of the bottom and middle of the GPU market. This is the area which characteristically brings in 5x the income of the enthusiast GPUs which are a moderately tiny portion of the industry. As for the release, the first Navi-powered graphics cards are anticipated to be released in the second half of 2018.
AMD 7nm NAVI GPU Price and Performance
Based on some news, the Navi GPU is expected to be small, low-power, high-performance desktop chipset that might be tagged for $250. This price point is presently occupied by the NVIDIA GTX 1060 and the AMD Radeon RX 580 if they were essentially being sold for their true value.
In case that the reports are proven to be true, the sad news will be AMD is effectively conceding the top-end of the market to NVIDIA once again. But despite that, for the majority GPU enthusiasts, being capable of getting GTX 1080 levels of performance for $250 will be an implausible proposition.
What can you say about this move by AMD to target the mid-tier GPU markets? Do you think it still has to compete with NVIDIA at the high-end? Please let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
