AMD Big Navi in 2020
AMD’s President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su has confirmed that we will see the Big Navi in 2020. So far, Dr. Lisa Su had not referred to the chip as ‘Big Navi’, only that a high-end Navi should be expected. The new message also clearly confirms that the GPU will be released this year. Lisa Su took part in The Bring Up AMD show, a special CES 2020 edition.
Lisa Su during The Bring Up CES 2020 Edition:
Lisa Su: My main message to our fans is this is just a beginning for us in 2020. I’ve heard a little bit through Twitter and Reddit that people are wondering about, you know, Big Navi. I can say you gonna see Big Navi in 2020. There might be few people wondering about Zen 3 as well and I can tell you that Zen 3 is doing really well, we are excited about it. I look forward talking about that later in 2020.
Lisa Su in January 2020 at CES 2020 (Anandtech):
Gordon Ung, PC World: Do you think that AMD has to have a high-end competitor in the discrete graphics market?
Lisa Su: [laughs] I know those on Reddit want a high end Navi! You should expect that we will have a high-end Navi, and that it is important to have it. The discrete graphics market, especially at the high end, is very important to us. So you should expect that we will have a high-end Navi, although I don’t usually comment on unannounced products.
Lisa Su in August 2019 during the second-quarter earnings call (story):
Q: Can you give us a sense on 7nm high-end NAVI and mobile 7nm CPUs
A: You asked a good product question. I would say they are coming. You should expect that our execution on those are on track and we have a rich 7nm portfolio beyond the products that we have already announced in the upcoming quarters.
