Or maybe not.

Sounds like this will be an interim update. An addition to the current “Little Navi” (aka RDNA 1) 5000-series line of cards.

Somewhat later - in the 2nd half of 2020 - Big Navi, (aka RDNA 2) 6000-series cards will arrive.

So I can see us waiting on tasty new drivers baked into Mac OS Fresno 10.16 or 10.16.1.

Enjoy Mac 4K ray-traced gaming during the 2020 holidays. 🎅🏻

I just purchased a Radeon VII. Dang, I would hope that I didn't spend so much only for something better to come out with a cheaper price. :/

I heard a bit of a wild rumour/speculation that kinda made sense...

RDNA 2 is under lock and key until the next gen Console releases as thats whats powering them (talks of 4K raytracing etc align).

Nah, you’re in a good place. Big Navi will be priced higher than your VII. 

@eightarmedpet

Yeah, they have to feed the much larger beast first. Excitement for the new consoles will be ridiculous, once they arrive.

@mini-i5, I would’ve been willing to buy it if I didn’t get the Radeon VII. I’m really curious about the release now and can’t wait to see it!
