Two announcements of graphics giants.

Radeon Navi gets Pro W5700

AMD is set to announce Radeon Pro W5700, a new Navi 10 graphics card. It’s a model with a new board design (PCB has changed compared with RX 5700). The board features dual 8-pin power connectors and five mini-DisplayPorts and USB Type-C connector (a VirtualLink?).

We are in a process of confirming the specs, but we expect Navi 10 2560 Stream Processors and 8 or 16GB GDDR6 256-bit.
