AMD has just announced that their upcoming Radeon series will, in fact, be called RX 5700.
The new series will be based on NAVI. Which is the beginning for RDNA macroarchitecture. Instead of sticking to RX 600 naming, AMD chose to add a zero instead. The Radeon RX 5000 series is basically to commemorate 50 years of AMD.
The RDNA is AMD’s first PCIe 4.0 and 7nm architecture with new Compute Unit design, multi-level cache hierarchy and streamline graphics pipeline. RNDA succeeds GCN (Graphics Core Next) macroarchitecture.
