AMD Radeon RX 5950, 5900, 5850 & 5800 Graphics Cards Leaked
AMD's next generation 7nm Navi based RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT are set to launch in just over a week on July 7th. The newcomers are priced at $379 and $449 respectively and are expected to compete with NVIDIA's RTX 2070 and RTX 2060.
AMD has yet to announce any other 7nm based Navi discrete graphics cards. However, the company's biggest Add-in-Board partner Sapphire has registered more than a dozen new trademarks with the ECC and these trademarks are quite telling of things to come.
AMD Radeon RX 5950, 5900, 5850 & 5800 Graphics Cards & More Leaked
The newly registered trademarks include The Radeon RX 5950XT, RX 5950, RX 5900XT, RX 5900, RX 5850XT, RX 5850, RX 5800XT, RX 5800, RX 5750XT, RX 5750, RX 5700XT, RX 5700, RX 5650XT, RX 5650, RX 5600XT, RX 5600, RX 5550XT, RX 5550, RX 5500XT, RX 5500, RX590XT and RX 590.
Now, AMD is obviously not working on or intending on releasing as many graphics cards as Sapphire has registered. That's just the AIB covering its tracks by registering all possible combinations of names in the 5000 series.
What this does indicate however, is that AMD is in fact indeed working on discrete graphics cards other than the RX 5700 XT and the RX 5700. What we do know, is that the company is working on at least two other Navi GPUs besides Navi 10, which is powering the RX 5700 series.
Smaller & Bigger Navi GPUs are in the Works
The two other GPUs will slot in above and below Navi 10 in terms of die size and overall performance. So you can certainly expect AMD to release both faster, more expensive RX 5000 series cards as well as more mainstream and affordable options down the line.
The exact timeline is unclear, but from everything we have heard to date we're not likely to see big Navi until next year. When the 7nm FinFET yields are more forgiving, today the process is just not mature enough to accommodate a competitively priced large chip. As for a smaller Navi chip, we expect it to show up just in time for the yearly Notebook refresh cycle towards the beginning of next year.
