AMD’s præsident og administrerende direktør Dr. Lisa Su har bekræftet, at vi vil se Big Navi i 2020. Indtil videre har Dr. Lisa Su ikke omtalt chippen som ”Big Navi”, men at vi kunne forventes en high-end Navi GPU.
Den nye meddelelse bekræfter også tydeligt, at GPU'en vil blive frigivet i år. Lisa Su deltog i The Bring Up AMD-show, en speciel CES 2020-udgave, hvor der typisk slippes mere luft ud fra de største beslutningstagere hos blandt andet AMD-lejren.
Alle nedenstående citater fortæller os, at noget stort er på vej fra AMD:
Lisa Su under dette års The Bring Up CES 2020 Edition:
“Lisa Su: My main message to our fans is this is just a beginning for us in 2020. I’ve heard a little bit through Twitter and Reddit that people are wondering about, you know, Big Navi. I can say you gonna see Big Navi in 2020. There might be few people wondering about Zen 3 as well and I can tell you that Zen 3 is doing really well, we are excited about it. I look forward talking about that later in 2020”
Lisa Su fra CES 2020 (Anandtech):
“Gordon Ung, PC World: Do you think that AMD has to have a high-end competitor in the discrete graphics market?”
“Lisa Su: [laughs] I know those on Reddit want a high end Navi! You should expect that we will have a high-end Navi, and that it is important to have it. The discrete graphics market, especially at the high end, is very important to us. So you should expect that we will have a high-end Navi, although I don’t usually comment on unannounced products”
Lisa Su fra august 2019 under AMD’s second-quarter earnings call:
“Q: Can you give us a sense on 7nm high-end NAVI and mobile 7nm CPUs
A: You asked a good product question. I would say they are coming. You should expect that our execution on those are on track and we have a rich 7nm portfolio beyond the products that we have already announced in the upcoming quarters”
