The rumours about AMD's new 7nm Navi GPU are continuing to spread, this time via The Inquirer. They have heard tell that the chips are currently being tested, which is good news for both AMD and consumers. We know that new Vega cards will be arriving in the near future but as of now we don't know as much about the release of Navi. If they are currently testing the silicon that could imply some sort of release next year, perhaps not a full lineup but quite possibly something we can take a peek at and see how it stacks up to Turing. Lets hope it is sooner rather than later.
"Touted to be the next graphics accelerators to take the fight to Nvidia with its Turing-based GeForce RTX graphics cards, Navi is set to use a 7nm process which promises to get more power out of GPU silicon."
