Just days after announcing an October 28th launch date for its upcoming Radeon RX 6000-series GPUs, AMD has started teasing its upcoming GPU lineup on social media. the corporate , on Monday, shared the primary official render of its ‘Big Navi’ graphics card, showing a huge dual-slot reference design cooled by a triple fan setup.
the design, which shows 2x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI, and 1x USB Type-C port, is probably going to be that of the Radeon RX 6700 XT or the RX 6900 XT. Beyond that, there’s little or no info about it but we believe that AMD will keep posting the occasional teaser about its upcoming Big Navi GPU and Zen 3 CPU lineup within the run-up to their launch next month, so we will expect plenty more information within the coming days.
AMD last week announced that it’ll unveil its next-gen Zen 3-based Ryzen Desktop CPUs (codenamed ‘Vermeer’) on October 8, followed by the Radeon RX 6000-series graphics cards supported the RDNA 2 architecture on October 28. While the previous is predicted to require on Intel’s ‘Tiger Lake’ processor lineup, the latter is now expected to compete against Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3000-series cards.
Meanwhile, one interesting aspect of the big Navi cards is that they could power both Sony’s and Microsoft’s upcoming gaming consoles. consistent with a teaser video released last week by the AMD, the graphic cards will support both PC and consoles, seemingly confirming persistent rumors that the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will both ship with these chips.
