A year ago people were underestimating what next gen consoles would bring to the table.

Some of the arguments were as follows

4 Core / 8 Thread Ryzen @ 2.4 Ghz because that’s all TDP will allow

Vega 56 performance because Navi is GCN and that’s all TDP will allow.

Well Ryzen 3000 is here now, 8 cores, 16 threads at 3.2 Ghz will likely consume less than 35 watts!

Navi is here as well; it’s outperforming Pascal (GTX 1080 for example) per watt, and also outperforming Pascal if the TFLOPS are equal.

In fact Navi is now sometimes outperforming Turing (RTX) in performance per watt, And very very close to Turning in Performance per TFLOP.

It’s starting to look like next gen consoles will at least have 1080 Ti performance + Ray Tracing. Are you excited or bitter about it?

PS, the photo of Scarlett’s Die chip At E3 reveals that Scarlett’s chip is larger than a 5700 XT and Ryzen 3700X combined

The CPU boost is the most exciting thing about next-gen consoles as that was their biggest bottleneck before. Not too much to get excited about on the GPU front. If performance is around a GTX 1080, that is nothing to brag about. GTX 1080 will be 4.5 years old when the consoles launch. High end PC GPUs in holiday 2020 will put the new consoles to shame.

I think 1080 Ti at the very least, not 1080

still crazy considering many thought Vega 64 performance was impossible; yet a 5700 XT outperforms a VEGA 64 by 15-20% in most games.

We will have to wait and see. I hope that they exceed people's expectations. PC will always be better and my primary platform. However, better console hardware will improve the quality of the exclusives I play on them. Also, it will raise the lowest common denominator for multi-plats.

RX 5700 has Turing TU104-TU106 perf/watt. Turing TU102 still has superior perf/watt.

At higher clock speed, RX 5700 XT's perf/watt degrades into Pascal's perf/watt.

It's actually a very meh GPU and offers nothing. The 2070 Super kills it and has many more modern features. The 2060 Super trades blows with it, is cheaper and once again, more modern features.

So this card alone exceeds the TDP of an entire console, is 400$ and slower than a 1080 Ti yet you expect the consoles to sport a GPU that is faster, draws half as much power and costs like 100$ to manufacture?

It depends on workload. On Forza Horzion 4's considerations with MSAA 2X, RX-5700 XT is close to GTX 1080 TI.

Targeted geometry budget and forward plus rendering are Sony and MS favorites.

2070 Super (TU104) is 13 billion transisisors design while both 2060 Super/2070 and RX 5700 XT/5700 are 10 billion transisiors designs.

NAVI 10 is missing DXR, VSR (Variable Shading Rate) and Tensor cores.

NAVI 10 and TU106 has conservative raster, raster ordered views, shader rapid pack maths up to quad rate INT8, delta color compression for the entire graphics pipeline, tiled resource level 4, wave32 compute, hardware async compute, ~4 MB L2 cache and 'etc'.

It depends on how MS fits 5700/5700XT into X1X like box with horizontal CU expansion + lower clock speed, under voltage tricks, TSMC's 7nm+ UV improvements (15 percent lower power) and memory bus 320/384 bits GDDR6.

MS managed to fit 93 percent of RX 580's base clock speed for X1X while delivering 6 TFLOPS alternative with less power consumption and 4 extra GDDR5 chips when compared RX-580.

Both RX-580 and RX-5700 XT has similar TDP numbers with 5700 XT being slightly higher TDP.

is the 5700 & 5700 XT AMD main card for the next 2 years? its decent but not mindblowing, I mean even the XT is just around 2060 Super performance (albeit XT is a new card, still not mature yet so may have some performance gain after some updates).

The Ryzen 3rd gen though, really made the intel lineup obsolete.

The difference is not huge anymore though, plus it works better in almost every other area too and even thermal is more efficient than Intel. I cannot see Intel fighting this other than lowering their prices

Radeon VII "End of Life".

AMD Radeon VII is no more

Cowcotland has just confirmed with their sources that AMD Radeon VII is no longer in production. The stores are selling the remaining stock and apparently, no more Radeon VII cards will be made.

According to Cowcotland, Radeon VII was declared ‘end of life’ last month by AMD.

The Radeon VII is AMD’s first 7nm-based graphics card featuring Vega 20 GPU with 3840 Stream Processors. The VII was also AMD’s first to feature 16GB memory for the consumer market.

With the announcement of Radeon RX 5700 series, it became clear that VII is simply not as power-efficient and cost-effective solution as Navi-based models.

This also puts an end to rumors about custom Radeon ‘7’ models.

GCN is a dead end architecture.

PS; NAVI can run GCN's wave64 instructions as two wave32 compute as backward compatibility.

With the Radeon RX 5700 series set to take on the GeForce RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 it could be left to an RX 5800 series with Navi 21 GPUs to give Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti some proper competition

Alright broke out the measurement taping and found out some things about Navi and the Anaconda in terms of sizes on 7nm.

5700:

GDDR6 phy controller: 4.5mm x 8

Dual CU: 3.37mm x 20

4 ROP cluster: .55mm x 16

L1+L2+ACE+Gemotry processor+empty buffer spaces + etc: 139mm

Now Anaconda:

A rougher estimate using the 12x14mm GDDR6 chips next to the SOC.

370 mm-390 mm.

It's a bit bigger than the 1X SOC for sure.

If we use the figure of 380mm,

75mm for CPU

45mm for 10 GDDR6 controllers

8.8mm for ROPs

140mm for buses, caches, ACE, geometry processors, shape etc. I might be over estimating this part as the 5700 seems to have lots of "empty" areas.

We have ~110mm left for CUs + RT hardware. There is enough there for ~30 dual CUs and RT extensions.

Conclusion:

The Anaconda SOC is around the minimum size you need to fit the maximum Navi GPU and Zen2 cores.

I expect Anaconda to have a minimum of 48 CUs if the secret sauce is extra heavy or 60CUs if the sauce is light.

370 mm2 to 390 mm2 estimated.

Im hoping for at least 52 CU if the “sauce is light”

You may want to look up the word 'obsolete'.

Intel is still winning in gaming benchmarks, which is all that matters in a console scenario. What are you gonna do? Edit 4k video on your console?

Why are you people measuring die size as if it matters most?...

X1X managed to get higher than RX 480 CU counts because the RX 480 was a 150w TDP card and all they got was 4 CU's more so, but the 5700 XT is a 225w TDP card... Higher CU than a XT?... Yeah not happening.

Based on TDP of Navi the next generation of consoles are looking at 5700 Pro with dedicated ray tracing cores.

52-60CU's?... GTFO, those cards when released on PC will be 250-300w GPU's running at 94c. Its just not happening on a console.

Navi is hot and runs higher TDP than polaris with the same CU counts

  • 5700 - 36 CU - 180w TDP - 84c with a better blower cooler
  • 480 - 36 CU - 150w TDP - 79c with a worse blower cooler

A 52-60CU Navi chip on a APU with additional ray tracing cores design to be cooled with one fan and run at 150w in a plastic box?... You guys are retarded.

  • 40 CU with 4 CU's disabled = Worst case
  • 44 CU with 4 CU's disabled = Most likely
  • 48 CU with 4 CU's disabled = best case

There is a reason why Microsoft didn't talk about teraflops during their reveal event because their chips will not be higher than XT levels, it might have the same CU count but would have to lower clocks to get those CU's which would lower the TFLOP count to 9-10.

X1X got higher CU's than a RX 480 which was low powered GPU and the X1X runs at lower clocks just to get those extra CU's which is why they are both 6TFLOP, the XT is not a low powered GPU at all its TDP is closer to a 1080 Ti than it is a 1060.

Just look at the difference 4 extra CU's does to Navi in terms of TDP 5700 vs XT:

60CUs?...

You guys are drunk.

4 Core / 8 Thread Ryzen @ 2.4 Ghz because that’s all TDP will allow

Vega 56 performance because Navi is GCN and that’s all TDP will allow.

Well Ryzen 3000 is here now, 8 cores, 16 threads at 3.2 Ghz will likely consume less than 35 watts!

Navi is here as well; it’s outperforming Pascal (GTX 1080 for example) per watt, and also outperforming Pascal if the TFLOPS are equal.

In fact Navi is now sometimes outperforming Turing (RTX) in performance per watt, And very very close to Turning in Performance per TFLOP.

It’s starting to look like next gen consoles will at least have 1080 Ti performance + Ray Tracing. Are you excited or bitter about it?

PS, the photo of Scarlett’s Die chip At E3 reveals that Scarlett’s chip is larger than a 5700 XT and Ryzen 3700X combined

Honestly, without seeing anything next gen related game-wise... I've got little to no hype. It has nothing to do with the Navi.

Power consumption doesn’t look like a problem
