It could be September the month in which AMD and Nvidia they will cross swords presenting new series of gaming video cards. For those who follow us, it is not exactly new news, we have already written that we expect the arrival of new products towards the end of summer: in these hours, the Taiwanese Digitimes website reinforces the hypothesis, according to which in September we will see new proposed by the two producers, together with discounts for solutions currently on the market.
Nvidia has just presented architecture Ampere in the sense intended for data centers, but as stated by the CEO and President Huang, the new project will also be the basis of the gaming and professional proposals, albeit with different configurations. Rumors have circulated – to take the pliers – on the GeForce RTX 3000 range, according to which there will be a clear leap forward in performance compared to the current Turing proposals, in particular regarding ray tracing performance.
On the front AMD instead, after the introduction last July of the Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT based on the Navi project and RDNA architecture, the company has unveiled other medium and medium-low range products, leaving "discovered" the highest end of the market, where cards like the RTX 2080 SUPER and the RTX 2080 Ti have no competitors.
AMD has long confirmed that it is working on a renamed GPU "Big Navi", based on architecture RDNA 2 and designed for the high performance 4K gaming, complete with ray tracing support. It will be interesting to see if Big Navi will be able not only to do better than the current Nvidia fleet, but also to keep up with the new range. What should not be forgotten however is that RDNA 2 architecture will not be limited to a single market segment, but will occupy multiple market segments, so successors can be expected for today's Radeon RX 5X00.
