TweakTown announces that AMD will present its Navi family of graphics cards at this year's E3 from June 11-13. The chipsets will be available for sale less than a month later, on July 7 - two sevens in the date will refer to AMD's 7nm production process. The news coincides with numerous earlier information and would make a lot of sense - the E3 is an ideal moment to present such a product.
According to the editors of the portal, the first graphics card based on this architecture - Navi 10 - is to be characterized by high performance. In internal testing, it allegedly defeats the Radeon RX Vega 64 and competes with the GeForce RTX 2080 from Nvidia without any problems. This would mean that Nvidia would still be able to boast the most powerful gaming GPU on the market, the RTX 2080 Ti (technically, there's still the Titan RTX, but it's more of a professional GPU). Even if the first card from the Navi family is properly priced, it shouldn't be a problem for AMD - especially that according to rumors the "reds" have also the stronger Navi 20 up their sleeve (this one, however, is supposed to debut in 2020).
Navi sure seems promising, although the first reviews will be available only after the launch and first independent tests.
