3. AMD Sheds First Details On Radeon RX 5700

AMD debuted its first 7-nanometer GPU, the Radeon Instinct MI60 for data centers, last fall, and followed that up with the first 7nm desktop graphics card, the Radeon VII, earlier this year.

Now the company is preparing to launch a wider selection of 7nm graphics cards for desktop systems in July with the new Radeon RX 5700 series, which will feature GDDR6 memory and PCIe 4.0 support. In a demonstration, AMD CEO Lisa Su showed a Radeon RX 5700 graphics card outperforming Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2070 in the PC game Strange Brigade at roughly 100 frames per second at high settings.

AMD said the forthcoming GPU product line is based on RDNA, which it called "the next foundational gaming architecture" that will drive the future of gaming across PCs, consoles and cloud. The new design will allow the company to provide improvements in performance, power and memory efficiency in a smaller package compared to its previous generation Graphics Core Next architecture.

Those improvements include a higher performance-per-clock of more than a factor of 1.25 and a higher performance-per-watt of more than 1.5 times compared to the previous architecture, which AMD said will enable a "better gaming performance at lower power and reduced latency."

AMD said it will share more RX 5700 details at a June 10 event during the E3 video game convention.
