AMD Radeon has just passed the mandatory certification to its new AMD Radeon RX 5700 graphics card model. The surprising thing is that, from the certification papers, it follows that there will not be a single model of the new AMD Radeon RX 5000: there could be a total of 5 different models among themselves. With these 5 models, AMD Radeon would be able to cover the entire range of graphics cards without any problem. Just as he has always done since he started using the name RX.
Although AMD Radeon already presented its AMD Radeon RX 5700 graphics card during the last Computex 2019, the data that is known about its new architecture RDNA, successor to the current GCN, are basically null. In fact, we will have to wait for the Next Horizon conference, which will take place during the celebration of the new E 3 2019.
At the moment, all we know is that AMD has redesigned the internal architecture of the GPU, increasing its IPC and its efficiency. We also know that, with the new graphics, AMD finally puts aside the old VRAM GDDR5 memory, and will start using the GDDR6.
The certification that has just passed AMD Radeon in South Korea is the first step to be able to sell their new graphics cards AMD Radeon RX 5000 series. But, the curious thing is that, apart from giving the certification for the RX 5700, it is also said in the document that there are four other variants of the same graphics card.
Given that the new AMD Radeon RX 5000 graphics cards will replace all the current RX 500 cards, which could indicate this certification would be that the top model of this new series would be the AMD Radeon RX 5900. In fact, it would be very possible that the distribution of the new graphics cards will end up being as follows:
Someone may think that the RX 5900 model would be rare to reach the market. But the history of the names that AMD Radeon has put to its graphic cards, has almost always included a model finished in 90 as top of the range. There we have the HD 6990, HD 7990, R9 290, R9 390 and RX 590. Only the RX 400 series did not have an RX 490. In fact, there was much talk at the time about this graphics card, but in the end it did not materialize In nothing. Which, in reality, was a real missed opportunity on the part of this manufacturer.
In any case, it is clear that the conference Next Horizon of AMD is going to be one of the most anticipated by hardware enthusiasts. Almost as much as the Computex 2019 conference where AMD announced, both the AMD Radeon RX 5700, and its new AMD Ryzen 3000 processors. We, from Hard Zone, will be very aware of this conference (to be held on Monday, June 10, 2019 ), and whose schedule is far more reasonable than the 04:00 AM AMD conference at Computex 2019.
