AMD Frank Azor “The sun will come out tomorrow” – is it Big Navi?

AMD’s Chief Gaming Architect and Marketing Frank Azor published a cryptic message on Twitter. The tweet indicates that something might happen tomorrow (September 10). Despite the tweet being rather long, it does not provide any meaningful information as to the nature of the teaser.

We do, however, expect to see another teaser for Big Navi or something related to Zen3 (pure speculation). It could happen in the form of an update to the AMD Battle Arena map in Fortnite. Just recently AMD sponsored streamer discovered that the map contains hints related to the Big Navi graphics card. The Easter Egg required completion of a few steps such as entering a 6000 passcode to see a message “SOMETHING BIG IS COMING TO THE AMD BATTLE ARENA!”. This message has more or less confirmed that the next-generation Navi is codenamed RX 6000 series.

Frank Azor has later said on Twitter that there might be more hidden in the game that has not yet been discovered. So far, no one has had success in finding more information about Big Navi.

We do encourage everyone to tone down their excitement. AMD has not informed their board partners about the potential unveiling of the new graphics card yet. As we have heard (just yesterday), everything is being discussed internally. A lack of such communication means that Big Navi is still being kept a secrete even from AIBs. AMD might play the long game here though. Virtually any information about Big Navi will certainly steal some spotlight from the ongoing GeForce RTX 30 Ampere launch. The series launch in a gradual fashion with the first model coming September 17th and the last being somewhere in October (NVIDIA only confirmed a month for RTX 3070).

The message has not been liked or retweeted by Scott Herkelman (CVP & GM AMD Radeon), However it was retweeted by Sasa Marinkovic who is a Gaming Director at AMD. This more or less indicates that the Azor’s tweet is related to consumer product news. A lack of Herkleman’s retweet does not support a rumor that the tweet might be related to Big Navi.
