Karlston posted a topic in Technology NewsAMD is announcing a new Radeon RX 6000 GPU in March The event will be held on March 3rd AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU Photo by Tom Warren / The Verge AMD has announced a new hardware event for next month, where the company plans to unveil the next GPU in its Radeon RX 6000 line of cards. The presentation will air on March 3rd at 8AM PT / 11AM ET. Like other GPUs in the RX 6000 series, this new model will use the RDNA 2 architecture, including real-time, hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading. AMD’s announcement of a new GPU presentation comes just one day before sales kick off for Nvidia’s affordable RTX 3060 GPU at select retailers. AMD debuted the Radeon RX 6000 line of graphics cards in late October, with the GPUs serving as a direct competitor to Nvidia’s RTX 30 cards. Currently, the RX 6000 consists of three GPUs: the flagship RX 6900 XT, the $649 RX 6800 XT, and the RX 6800, which is the most affordable of the trio at $579. With the announcement of a new RX 6000 card coming, we anticipate that, like other GPUs in this series, it will sell out quickly. In January, AMD told The Verge that within the first quarter of 2021, it expects to sell more of its own RX 6000 cards through its website, which is bittersweet news considering the RX 6000 has been difficult to buy.

Karlston posted a topic in Technology NewsAMD says RX 6000 Big Navi will be ‘by far the most powerful gaming GPU we have ever built’ Promising 4K gaming at over 60fps AMD just announced its new Zen 3-powered Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, but CEO Lisa Su didn’t stop there, ending her presentation with a preview of AMD’s other big PC announcement: the company’s upcoming RX 6000 “Big Navi” GPUs, which it’s set to announce on October 28th. While full details on the upcoming lineup of graphics cards won’t come until later in October, Su is setting expectations high, promising that the RX 6000 lineup offers “by far the most powerful gaming GPU we have ever built.” Su also offered a brief preview of what to expect from the company’s top-of-the-line Ryzen 5000 CPUs working together with the new RX 6000 series GPUs, showing a short clip of Borderlands 3 running at 4K resolution at over 60fps at “Badass Quality,” along with benchmarks for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (88fps for 4K gameplay at ultra settings) and Gears 5 (73fps for 4K gameplay at ultra settings). The new RX 6000 GPUs are a big deal for AMD: not only do they mark the company’s most powerful graphics cards yet, but they will also see the debut of the company’s next-generation RDNA 2 graphics architecture. RDNA 2 isn’t just powering the new desktop PC GPUs; it’s also the basis for the custom GPUs in both the Xbox Series X / S and the PlayStation 5. While AMD didn’t call out Nvidia directly during today’s presentation, it’s hard not to look at those numbers and start comparing them to the company’s recently released RTX 3080 GPU, which makes similar promises of practical 60fps-plus 4K gaming. That said, we’ll have to wait for AMD to give some more concrete details before it’s possible to really compare the two GPU lineups. AMD is expected to formally announce the RX 6000 series of GPUs on October 28th. AMD says RX 6000 Big Navi will be ‘by far the most powerful gaming GPU we have ever built’
