AMD accidentally confirms Navi 22 GPU
AMD will reveal the next Radeon RX 6000 graphics card on March 3rd.
The manufacturer has not confirmed which or how many graphics cards will be shown, but the leaks on Radeon RX 6700 series have been floating around the web ever since RDNA2 architecture was announced.
AMD has not revealed its Navi 22 GPU yet. That’s despite its specifications being widely available ever since the macOS leak happened. Thus, at this point, it is common knowledge that the GPU features 40 Compute Units and up to 2560 Stream Processors.
The website that was prepared for the announcement of the announcement (because that’s what it is) didn’t offer any details on the new graphics card, but it did feature a video presenting an unnamed dual-fan graphics card. It was in fact the same design that had leaked many months ago.
What went unnoticed is that AMD mistakenly named the file “navi-22-gif-variation-3.mp4”, essentially confirming the GPU processor for the graphics card. The name of the teaser video was discovered by Benchmark.pl editor Paweł Maziarz. AMD quickly noticed the mistake and has since changed the name to less obvious “700302-radeon-2-fan-cooler-design”:
