Fresh new gossip from the GPU grapevine contends that AMD is planning to start Radeon RX 3080, RX 3070 and RX 3060 graphics cards to compete with Nvidia’s new Turing types – and probably in a significant way on rate, if this leak is nearly anything to go by.
This will come from AdoredTV, the YouTube channel which has been the source of different leaks in the past – some of them fairly accurate – and has spilled alleged particulars of AMD’s Ryzen 3000 processors which we’ve already highlighted.
The three alleged graphics cards – don’t forget, take all this with a suitably sizeable dose of salt – are incoming 7nm efforts headed up by the RX 3080 based on the Navi ten GPU.
Certainly, specs are sketchy at this point, but the contention is that this card will have 8GB of GDDR6 movie RAM, with a TDP of 150W, and will be priced at $250 (around £195, AU$345). It will seemingly conduct around ten to 15% more quickly than an RX Vega 64.
In accordance to AdoredTV, the RX 3080 ought to be aggressive in terms of efficiency with the RTX 2070. (Or the GTX 1080 from Nvidia’s past generation, of which there is nonetheless loads of stock kicking around by all accounts.) This makes that rate is a little bit of an eye-opener – we’ll converse much more about that in a moment.
Then there’s the RX 3070, based on the Navi twelve GPU, and also functioning with 8GB of GDDR6, with a somewhat decrease TDP of 120W, pitched at $200 (around £155, AU$275). Effectiveness-intelligent, it is supposedly aggressive with AMD’s Vega 56 GPU, or on the Nvidia aspect of the fence, the GTX 1070 (and the RTX 2060, when it emerges – or indeed GTX 2060, dependent on how Nvidia brand names the item).
Rounding factors off is the RX 3060 which is also designed around Navi twelve, but in this case it’ll be a minimize-down spin, with the card having 4GB of GDDR6 and a TDP of 75W – with no need to hook it up to the PSU. This will be aggressive with AMD’s personal Radeon RX 580 and Nvidia’s GTX 1060, although getting priced at a deal basement $129 (around £100, AU$180).
Value is right?
So, pricing: for the RX 3080 to be pitched at $250 (around £195, AU$345) – and aggressive with the RTX 2070, which is typically speaking around 2 times that rate – would be really something.
Of class, all this is just speculation, and this early indication of pricing is very likely to be rough guessing relatively than nearly anything else. But, it is fascinating that AMD is seemingly hunting to be remarkably aggressive, but then again, that should not appear as a surprise.
Just after all, we’ve not long ago heard AMD assert that it will “be quite aggressive general and that contains the large-stop of the GPU industry,” with some remarkable GPUs launching in 2019.
As at any time, we’ll just have to hold out and see. The other fascinating point is the names that this rumor purports AMD will use: at minimum to us, the RX 3000 variety has much more than a little bit of ‘Spinal Tap’ about it (in that it is ‘one better’ than Nvidia’s 2000-collection Turing goods).
