The big question here is … Is it cheaper than the RTX 3080? Apparently yes!
Well, it’s an exciting time for PC fans like me! After all, as we all know, NVIDIA is expected to launch graphics cards based on the Ampere architecture for consumers in the coming months. However, as the rivalry seems to be back, AMD is also in the process of launching its ‘Big Navi’ products from the new RDNA 2 architecture.
That said, we already have some reasons for some disappointment… After all, there are several rumors to point to a Team Red flagship “Nvidia Killer” being able to offer 50% more performance compared to the RTX 2080 Ti. However, it seems , it will not be anything as monstrous as the rumors claimed.
Some Asian sources claim that AMD has started sharing some details about its new GPUs with its Add-In Board (AIB) partners. And apparently, they say that the performance level of the high end graphics card – code name Sienna Cichlid – is only 15% higher than that of an RTX 2080 Ti by Nvidia, and apparently, in only a few “optimized” games from OMG.
It’s unfortunate, Big Navi was expected to be a direct competitor to Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti… Still, nothing is lost! After all, if this AMD card offers the same performance as an RTX 3080 at a more appealing price, it could still be a very positive thing for NVIDIA’s rival, since the manufacturer has not been able to compete in the ‘High End’ for a long time. a series of years. In fact, it seems that this is AMD’s main objective, to make a significant undercut to its rival, which in turn should lead to an authentic price war. (NVIDIA doesn’t want to see an RX 5700 steal market share again!)
In short, the goal will be to offer players what will still be an excellent performance at a lower price.
However, the Coreteks writes that two graphics cards based on the most powerful GPU will be launched: a cutting-edge product and a cutting-edge alternative – something very similar to what happened with the super popular 5700 XT and 5700. In addition, there will also be a mid-range product, code name Navy Flounder, which is expected to launch in early 2021.
The launch is coming soon! Very briefly, you won’t have to wait long to discover the accuracy of the leak. The Big Navi GPU will be unveiled in early September, with graphics cards to be launched on October 7th. In the meantime, Nvidia is expected to launch its Ampere GPUs on September 17th.
