AMD teases new Big Navi Graphis card and Ryzen 9 5900X combo

Published by


You probably have not missed it but in its presentation today AMD also gave away a sneak preview of Big Navi, the GPU importing the next generation Raytracing capable graphics cards from AMD.

The sneak peek was just that though, showing the card and some game performance. In Borderlands 3 with the Ryzen 9 5900X and a 'Radeon 6000 Series'  card reached over 60 frames per second at 4K (which is RTX 3080 territory). In addition, the combo manages to achieve a frame rate of 88 fps at the same 3840 x 2160 resolution in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with the quality settings on Ultra. Gears of War 5 achieves 73 fps at Ultra. That again is RTX 3080 territory. The real problem, however, is that it is unclear how exactly AMD tested the games. Be it with an integrated benchmark, if available, or with a real game scene. AMD doesn't go into that exactly. 

AMD specifies the Badass preset from Borderlands 3, the Ultra preset from Gears 5 and "Ultra" from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Modern Warfare has no presets at all, presumably it is simply the maximum graphic details, but probably without ray tracing. Borderlands 3 would run in the highest possible level of detail, while Gears 5 has two higher levels of detail. In addition, DirectX 12 is used as the API.

The official presentation of the Radeon RX 6000 series based on RDNA 2 will take place on October 28th . Availability and first tests can be expected in the following weeks, probably in mid-November.
