AMD Navi: PS5-bound GPU to be revealed at E3 2019

You won’t have to wait much longer for the AMD Navi GPU reveal, with reports suggesting it will take the stage during E3 2019. 

TweakTown reports AMD will host an event on 11 June during E3 2019, where the new 7-nanometre AMD Navi graphics card will finally be unveiled to the public. 

This follows rumours that AMD will hold a Partners Summit event on 23 April. Usman Pirzada from Wccftech reports this meeting will be a closed event, reserved for partners and third-party manufacturers only. 

What will be the topic at this Partners Summit event is speculative, but it’s expected to be the first time AMD shows off its upcoming GPU and CPU components.

AMD’s forthcoming graphics card is expected to use next-generation 7nm architecture called Navi. This would mark AMD’s first entirely new chip design since Vega, which launched a year and a half ago. What are the specs for the Navi graphics card? It’s too early to say, although rumours hint towards it competing with the likes of the mid-range Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.

The AMD Navi architecture is also confirmed to feature in the upcoming Sony PlayStation 5 console. Wired even reported the PS5 will support ray tracing, which consequently means the AMD Navi graphics cards likely will too, putting Navi toe to toe with Nvidia’s RTX offering.

Along with the Navi GPU, AMD is expected to show its next-gen processor. The 7nm Ryzen 3000 CPU – featuring new Zen 2 architecture – has widely been rumoured to make an appearance in 2019, so it would make a lot of sense for it to take the stage at the Partners Summit.

Detail is sparse regarding specs and performance, but the new AMD processor is expected to rival – maybe even surpass – Intel’s i9-9900K processor.
