AMD’s Computex 2019 keynote is just around the corner, along with what many of us are expecting to be news about its upcoming Ryzen 3000 CPUs and Navi GPU architecture. On the latter note, it seems that AMD’s long-time GPU partner, Sapphire Technologies, is reportedly prepping two Navi-powered graphics cards.
According to a report by Videocardz, a Sapphire PR manager had reportedly told Chinese press that AMD actually has not one, but two Navi SKUs in the works. The first of the two Navi GPUs is expected to cost US$399 (~RM1669), while the other will be priced at US$499 (~RM2088).
There is one other takeaway; according to the same Sapphire PR manager, it looks like both of AMD’s upcoming Navi GPUs will not bear support for ray-tracing. At least, not on a hardware level like the GeForce RTX series cards.
In any case, we’ll just have to wait until 27 May to find out if what Sapphire says is on the mark.
