Finally, the wait is over, AMD will launch its new RDNA 2 based GPU today at its graphics card event. This event is great for gamers as it will showcase AMD’s true generation leap in graphical performance, the same RDNA 2ure found on the next generation console.
The program will air on October 28 at 12 noon ET. / 9 a.m. P.T. / 5pm or 9:30 pm IST. Today, all Indians can get to see and experience the event where AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Sue will actually launch the new RDNA 2 GPU.
Here’s a live stream video to help you watch the AMD launch event live:
What to expect from today’s event?
AMD started building 7nm based Vega and new GPUs, but they weren’t convinced against the powerful NVIDIA RTX GPUs. However, things may change as the “budget-minded” AMD goes on display this time around.
Multiple leaks and rumors have suggested a lot about these new graphics cards, and they will go against the new RTX 30-Series GPUs that offer twice as much performance as before. Naturally, the battle between the companies will be an important aspect to look for, and it will be interesting to see who can offer the best value for money GPU.
Leaked specs of RX 6000 series GPUs
Over the past month or so, we’ve been seeing a lot of leaks with live images, however, to put them all together, the leaked GPU specs include:
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT – New 21 XTX
The larger new will feature 80 computing units, equivalent to 5120 stream processors. It will be an AMD specialized company. According to sources, the Raden RX 6900 XT is called AMD’s flagship series and will be available in limited quantities. The graphics card will have 16 GBDDR6 memory with a 256-bit bus. The menu is said to be clocked at 2040 MHz on the game and 2330 MHz at high speed.
AMD Ready N RX 6800 XT – New 21 XT
The Radeon RX 6800XT will include 72 computing units 4608 stream processors, and the units will be paired with 16GB of GDDR6 memory. The card will have a 256-bit memory bus and is said to have a clock speed of over 2.0 GHz. The game clock will be of 2015 MHz and will come under 2250 MHz for the clock increasing in haste.
AMD Raden RX 6800 – New 21 XL
The new 21XL, which is dubbed directly to the RX6800, will include 64 compute units, 4096 stream processors. The card also comes with a 256-bit memory bus with 16GB of GDDR6 memory. The clock speed is low, only 1815 MHz for the game clock and 2105 MHz for the boost clock.
The leaker, Patrick Schurr, has revealed the clock speed details of the AMD Raden graphics card, allegedly the AMD Raden RX6800XT, which powers the ASUS ROG Strix device and comes with a boost clock. Which is beyond 2.5 GHz.
ASUS Rog STRIX Radeon RX 6800 XT Custom Graphics Card Watches:
- –Sat – 2291/2289/2092 MHz
- Median – 2373/2301/2320 MHz
- Boost – 2556/2394/2489 MHz
A lot of the data is known for now, however, it will also be interesting to see how the horsepower of these GPUs performs in real-world applications and obviously in games! As new consoles arrive, it will be important to determine the price of these new AMD GPUs to go for consoles or gaming PCs with new RDNA 2 based GPUs.
