The Show-up Date of New AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT was Announced

Reading Time: < 1 minute

According to Cowcotland, AMD company will introduce their new Radeon RX 6700 XT graphic card. It will become the first model on Navi 22 graphic core. This information confirms the previous leak that happened in January this year.

The graphic card is going to be the first model on a graphic core Navi 22, which is based on RDNA2 architecture. It is worth mentioning it is a middle-class processor, which is aimed to be used in gaming laptops too. In the general configuration, it has got 40 counting blocks, which is equal to 2560 streamed processors. It is predicted that RX 6700 XT will get a GPU in its general configuration, and RX 6700 will get a slightly cut variant.

It is known that RX 6700 XT will have 12Gb of GDDR6 memory and a 192-bit memory bus. This model is likely to compete with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 12Gb, which is going to be presented 25-th of February. However, Nvidia is still the first in the graphic cards market top due to the number and variety of cards produced.

There is still no reliable information on the price of RX 6700 XT. However, Cowcotland information warns buyers about the difficulty they will face buying this graphic card due to a low production volume. It is better to choose something from Nvidia’s arsenal, in case you need to get your card as soon as possible.

96-core AMD processors – the new era of high performance!

Reading Time: 2 minutesCan you imagine how fast would it be to use a PC with a 96-core processor? AMD can!
It is informed that the next generation of AMD processors will be the last one to be based on AM4 socket.  All future desktop products are going to be on Zen 4 architecture, will have 5nm process, and therefrom, the new socket with a temporary unknown name is going to be presented.

However, the fact of getting more than 16 cores sounds to be not the best idea, talking about desktop versions, as there is Ryzen 9 5950X (it has 16 cores, 32 streams) that still do not fit into the market greatly with its $800 price, whereas server processors have no strict frames for performance. The source from Reddit says, that after MILAN (Zen 3), there will be GENOA (Zen 4) that will really get more than 64 cores. Also, it was stated, Zen 4 would have the SMT feature, which accounts for it to be supplied with twice more streams than cores and if we are to believe the very information under consideration, top-segment GENOA processors will have 192 streams while 96 cores.

A bit earlier, there was the data leak, that informed us about AMD to start with the new SMT4 feature for Zen 4 processors, what witnesses the possibility to have 4 streams for each core. The very feature gives much bigger opportunity to those, who are interested in 3D-modeling, video editing, online streams, or other highly demanding processes. Unfortunately, AMD decided to have this idea, at least for GENOA.

It is planned those 96 cores are to be placed on 12 chip plates, so there still will be 8 cores on each chip plate. And as for GENOA, it will support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory. Such processors are expected at the end of 2021, the date of the end of 2022 is also regarded as possible.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 series – the new player on a top-level GPUs field

Reading Time: 2 minutesIn case new reference AMD graphics cards are going to be presented on the 28-th of October and unreferenced ones will be in the middle of November (including Sapphire Nitro and Asus Strix), there is some inside information about the new Radeon RX 6000 series. Will it finally be a worthy competition between Nvidia and AMD or it’s just a new view at old graphic cards?

There was a leak of a code for macOS Big Sur that includes the characteristics of the future flagman AMD graphic cards, and now it is possible to know the power of three new GPUs. Their code-names are Navi 21, Navi 22 and Navi 23. According to the data, the number of counting units will be 80 for Navi 21, 40 for Navi 22 and 32 for Navi 23. Also, programmers told the approximate number of threads for each processor, it’s 5120 for the most powerful variant, 2560 for the middle one and 2048 for the lowest. The frequency of every GPU will be hesitating from 2GHz to 2.5GHz, when the factory new Nvidia RTX3000 series GPU frequency is about 2 times lower (from 1,4GHz to 1.7GHz).

However, the quantity of power the “red” cards need is even lower than for their “green” colleagues. The code says that the XT version of Navi 21, will need around 320W for reference graphic card and around 355W for unreferenced models while it is almost 290W for the XL version in comparison with 370W for RTX3080. However, there is no information about the memory of the cards in the code, but some programmers assume that it will get about 16Gb of memory that will work at 16GHz speed, while, for example, RTX3080 is working with 10Gb of memory and 19GHz speed.

Taking into account all the characteristics of the Radeon RX 6000 series, we can predict that it might be almost of the same power as the RTX3000 series. But knowing the AMD company, the price will definitely be cheaper and this is what will attract customers more.
