Just how good are AMD’s first 4K Big Navi benchmarks compared to the RTX 3080?

Yesterday, AMD gave us our first glimpse of what their upcoming RX 6000 Big Navi graphics cards will be able achieve at 4K. While the bulk of their Zen 3 event was centred around their Ryzen 5000 CPUs, we also got a first look at their first Big Navi GPU in action, running Borderlands 3 on its top Badass quality settings at an average of…

AMD tease first 4K benchmark figures for their RX 6000 Big Navi GPU

If unveiling their next generation of Ryzen 5000 CPUs wasn't enough this evening, AMD also gave us a sneak peak at their upcoming Big Navi GPUs during tonight's Zen 3 event. Not only did they give us our first glimpse of AMD's upcoming 4K graphics card in the flesh (as opposed to looking at a giant floating model of it in Fortnite), but they also…

This is what AMD’s first Big Navi graphics card looks like

AMD weren't kidding when they said "something big" was coming to their Fortnite multiplayer island, as they've just revealed the design of their first Big Navi graphics card there. Featuring a "brand new cooler design", this is likely the first RX 6000 card that will be revealed during AMD's big RDNA 2 event on October 28th. Details about the card itself are still pretty scarce,…

The next generation of AMD Navi GPUs is almost upon us. Dubbed Big Navi by fans, (or Navi 2X if you're AMD), this next-gen family of RX 6000 graphics cards will be based on AMD's new RDNA 2 architecture, and the first AMD GPUs to come with built-in ray tracing support. While the first wave of Big Navi cards due out before the end of…

AMD are using Fortnite to tease their RX 6000 Big Navi GPUs

While much of the next-gen graphics card conversation has been dominated by the trio of new Nvidia Ampere GPUs this past week, a recent discovery inside AMD's Battle Arena map in Fortnite suggests they, too, could be quietly gearing up to announce their own set next-gen graphics cards, the long awaited second generation of their Big Navi GPUs.

AMD’s Big Navi GPUs will arrive on PC first before the PS5 and Xbox Series X

There have been game and hardware delays left right and centre over the last few months, but AMD have confirmed that their upcoming Big Navi GPUs are still due to launch before the end of 2020. Speaking at Bank Of America's Global Technology Conference webcast, AMD's chief financial officer Devinder Kumar said, "We remain on track to launch our next generation of Zen 3 CPUs…

What Sony’s PS5 specs tell us about AMD’s Big Navi cards

As big hardware spec reveals go, yesterday's PS5 specs deep-dive was pretty darn dry. Sony's Mark Cerny spent at least 50% of the 50-odd minute presentation talking about the console's SSD, and we still don't have any idea what the thing actually looks like. It was just abstract graph after abstract graph, a bit like the one up the top there, which I think is…

The AMD ‘Big Navi’ GPU inside the Xbox Series X offers RTX 2080 levels of power

We've known for some time now that both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be powered by the next generation of AMD Navi GPUs, but thanks to our friends at Digital Foundry who have just revealed the full spec of Microsoft's Xbox Series X console, we now have a much better idea of just how powerful they're going to be and what that…

It's never a surprise when a graphics card maker announces, 'Hey, there are going to be new graphics cards this year!' but we could be seeing a lot more GPUs from AMD in 2020 than we first thought. Announced during their latest financial Q&A with investors, AMD's head lady Dr. Lisa Su confirmed that not only will we be getting refreshes of their existing Navi…

Feature: But can its cheaper price make up for no ray tracing support?

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT review: Just as fast as Nvidia’s RTX 2060

It's been a bit of a whirlwind week leading up today's launch of AMD's Radeon RX 5600 XT. Dubbed the "ultimate" bestest best graphics card for 1080p gaming, the RX 5600 XT was originally meant to be AMD's answer to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, coming in at an identical price of $279. Nvidia, however, fought back, lowering the price of their next card up,…

AMD’s Radeon RX 5600 XT takes aim at Nvidia’s GTX 1660 Ti

AMD announced the latest graphics cards in their new Big Navi family last night, the RX 5600 and RX 5600 XT. Much like their RX 5500 and RX 5500 XT cousins, the regular RX 5600 will only be available in pre-configured systems you buy from PC builders. The RX 5600 XT, on the other hand, is going to be the one you buy separately to…

Feature: The new benchmark for 1080p gaming on a budget

AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT review: More Super than all of Nvidia’s budget cards combined

When AMD first announced their new budget Big Navi card, the Radeon RX 5500, back at the beginning of October, I was expecting review samples to follow swiftly after it. They did not. Turns out, the RX 5500 isn't actually a graphics card you can buy off the shelf. Instead, the only place you'll find them is inside a pre-built PC. Why? Who knows. Perhaps…

Feature: And which one should you buy?

Nvidia RTX 2070 vs 2070 Super vs AMD RX 5700 XT: Which is best?

Over the last seven days, you might have noticed there have been a lot of new graphics cards shaking up our best graphics card list. First we had Nvidia's pair of RTX Super cards, the RTX 2060 Super and the RTX 2070 Super, and just a couple of days ago they were joined by two new Big Navi GPUs, the AMD's RX 5700 and RX…

Feature: And should you upgrade to an RTX 2060 Super or RX 5700 XT?

Nvidia RTX 2060 vs AMD RX 5700: Which one should you buy?

It's all gone a bit Game of Thrones in the world of graphics cards this week. Having enjoyed a very comfortable stint on the 1440p Iron Throne ever since it rose to power in February of this year, Nvidia's RTX 2060 was just about to assure its legacy with the birth of the RTX 2060 Super card when AMD pitched up and threatened to go…

Feature: Turning up the heat on Nvidia's RTX Super GPUs

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT review: XTra is the new Super

Man alive, I was a bit worried about AMD's Radeon RX 5700 XT for a minute there. Not from a pricing point of view, you understand. Even before AMD did their unexpected Navi price cut on Friday, I was always semi-confident that this supposed RTX 2070 rival would be able to hold its own against Nvidia's RTX Super competitor simply by virtue of already being…

Feature: AMD's first Navi GPU demands you sit up and LISTEN

AMD Radeon RX 5700 review: Move over, RTX 2060

What a whirlwind week it's been over in graphics card land. Just as we were getting all excited about the launch of two Big Navi cards, Nvidia went and crashed the party with their pair of RTX Super cards. Offering superior performance for roughly the same price as AMD's Navi GPUs, it looked like it was curtains for AMD before they'd even had a chance…

Shots fired as AMD cut price of Navi GPUs just before launch to combat Nvidia’s RTX Super cards

The launch of two Big Navi cards is just over 24 hours away right now, but after having been gazumped by Nvidia's RTX Super graphics cards earlier in the week, AMD have just announced a little gazumping of their own in the form of an unexpected price cut for both the RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT. How about that for a nice bit of…

AMD have finally lifted the lid on two of their new Big Navi GPUs, the Radeon RX 5700 XT and the Radeon RX 5700. Unveiled at their Next Horizon Gaming event at E3 this evening, the RX 5700 is AMD's answer to Nvidia's RTX 2060, while the RX 5700 XT is their RTX 2070 competitor, and if AMD's performance stats are to be believed, the…

We already know Sony's PlayStation 5 will support real-time ray tracing courtesy of its new custom Big Navi GPU, and now Microsoft's next-gen Project Scarlett console has hitched itself to the ray tracing bandwagon as well thanks to, yep, you guessed it, another custom AMD Navi GPU. Confirmed this evening by Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer during Microsoft's E3 press conference, Project Scarlett will deliver…

AMD Navi GPUs could be revealed as early as next week

Well, so much for waiting until June for the reveal of AMD's Navi cards at their big E3 event, as the latest rumours suggest we could see two Big Navi GPUs announce themselves to the world in less than a week - mostly likely when AMD take to the stage at this year's big Computex tech show over in Taiwan. Codenamed the Navi XT and…
