AMD Readying Multiple Navi 14 ‘Radeon RX’ GPUs, Reveals Latest Leak Which Mentions High ‘Game Clock’


AMD Radeon VII

AMD has not one or two however 5 completely different variants of mid to high-end graphics playing cards counsel a brand new leak. Apparently, along with reportedly revealing the existence of 5 new Navi 14 ‘Radeon RX’ GPUs, the leak additionally mentions a brand new parameter which may come to outline the completely different variants by way of their efficiency.

A number of feedback and a thread at Reddit are abuzz with exercise about thriller AMD graphics playing cards. Apparently, AMD is making ready a complete vary of Radeon RX Navi 14 GPUs that includes completely different cores and clocks configuration. Evaluation of the threads and feedback strongly point out AMD is engaged on a minimum of 5 variants of the Navi 14 GPU. As is mostly the case, AMD is trying to cowl a variety of markets and budgets. It’s doing so by providing various mainstream merchandise for devoted desktop graphics playing cards and laptop computer discrete graphics chips. However what’s extra fascinating is that the SKUs are being categorized by their ‘Peak/Recreation Clock’, a parameter that seems to be launched just lately by AMD.

AMD Readying 5 Totally different Configurations Of Radeon RX Navi 14 GPUs For A number of Markets And Budgets:

Within the current previous, it was repeatedly indicated that AMD was readying the Radeon RX 5500, Radeon RX 5500 XT and Radeon RX 5500M discrete graphics playing cards/chips. Nonetheless, in accordance with the newest leak, which is traced again to  agd5f/Linux repository, there are a minimum of 5 Radeon RX Navi 14 GPUs. The tweet beneath reveals them:

What’s fascinating to notice is that these SKUs, a few of which haven’t but been formally acknowledged, are being recognized or talked about together with ‘Peak Clock Speeds’. AMD had just lately modified the best way clocks are referred to for the higher-end Navi GPUs. The corporate had determined to supply three Clock Speeds for every of the discrete graphics playing cards/chips. The bottom clock pace was to be thought-about because the Base Clock, which is meant to be the usual working clock by default. Whereas that is frequent data, AMD modified the top-end nomenclature.

In different phrases, relating to enhance frequencies, AMD has just lately launched two distinctive Clock Speeds. Considered one of them is the ‘Recreation Clock Velocity’ and the opposite is the ‘Increase Clock Velocity’. The Increase Clock Velocity is pretty frequent data as the best, high or peak rated pace that the GPU can hit. The Recreation Clock Velocity is the brand new entrant within the classification of GPUs/graphics playing cards. Apparently, the Recreation Clock Velocity is the ‘Common Increase Clock’ the place the GPU is often going to sit down in. It’s not instantly clear what AMD means by common enhance clock, however it’s fairly doubtless that the Recreation Clock may very well be a common setting, whereas the Base Clock may the pace when the GPU is idling or with none load.

By the way, the Linux repository makes use of the time period ‘Peak Clock’ for the Recreation Clock, and that’s how the 5 completely different configurations of AMD Radeon RX Navi 14 GPUs may very well be categorized and recognized. As evident from the listing above, the Navi 14 XTX (1717 MHz) is for the Radeon RX 5500 XT, the Navi 14 XT is for the Radeon RX 5500 (1670 MHz), the Navi 14 XTM (1448 MHz) is for the Radeon RX 5500M. That leaves solely the Navi 14 XL and the Navi 14 XLM. It’s strongly believed that the Navi 14 XL may very well be an inexpensive or funds AMD desktop graphics card often known as the AMD Radeon RX 5300. The Navi 14 XLM SKU may very well be branded as Radeon RX 5300M and destined for laptops or notebooks with discrete graphics options.

AMD Taking On NVIDIA Turing Lineup With Radeon RX Navi 14 GPUs?

AMD readying so many alternate options and giving customers selection is primarily to counter the NVIDIA’s mainstream Turing lineup which was just lately introduced for desktop PCs. Given the indicative efficiency and clock speeds, the Navi 14 structure isn’t really a viable competitor to TU116 GPU primarily based playing cards. Nonetheless, AMD is understood to supply plenty of worth for cash for its graphics answer. Furthermore, the Turing-based NVIDIA GPUs sit at a a lot larger base worth, whereas the mid to inexpensive vary is at a totally completely different worth level.

Though the Turing Structure is perhaps a troublesome competitors for AMD, its Navi Structure isn’t dragging its ft. In actual fact, a closing model of a robust, high-end, and probably flagship AMD Radeon Graphics Card or GPU is reportedly below course of. With the desktop CPU market favoring AMD, and Intel getting into the GPU market, the subsequent yr guarantees a number of surprises.
