RDNA 2 architecture, the same tech that featured in both the PlayStation 5
and Xbox Series X
, the new Radeon RX 6000
series of PC gaming cards are set to be revealed late October
. This tease is basically a look at the physical build of the new line, which supports a new triple-fan cooling design and some sleek angles.
The only real bit of technical info being the use of two 8-pin connectors -- pointing to this being our first look at the long talked about 'Big Navi'. Much like in the console space the GPU market is no doubt set to heat up -- starting this week with the release of NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 30 series. Of which the Radeon RX 6000 series will be a direct competitor.
Exciting times to be sure. Even 2020 couldn't stop the massive hardware battle on the horizon.
As the successor to the Radeon RX 5000 series, built on RDNA 1 AMD has in the past teased sizable performance improvements in RDNA 2 architecture -- which is built on the same 7nm process that powers the impressive Ryzen CPU line. No doubt we'll be watching this one closely. You can check out the new design in the special Fortnite Creative Islands multiplayer map in the AMD Battle Arena -- with map code 8651-9841-1639.
