The RX 6000 series GPU appeared under the codename Navy Flounder
Navi 21 GPU, called Big Navi, is at the top of the RX 6000 series. The GPU encoded as Navy Flounder is in the group RX 6700 or RX 6800. The new 40 process GPU division can come with 2560 cores.
AMD’s Navi 22 “Navy Flounder” GPU appeared in the latest ROCm 3.8 update. If we make a classification for this chip, we can think that it belongs to the Radeon RX 6700 or RX 6800 series.
The Navy Flounder GPU is not a new name and is known from the time we heard the code name Sienna Chiclid. According to the leaks, AMD’s graphics solution, also known as Big Navi, comes with the Navi 21 GPU and codenamed Sienna Chiclid. Navi 22, that is, the lower level is coded as Navy Flounder.
If we look at new details, we also have the technical features of this Navi 22 GPU. According to the information received, the new graphics card has 40 Processing Units (CUs). AMD used 64 stream processors per CU in its RDNA 1 series. If these numbers are kept the same in the RDNA 2 architecture, it means that there will be a total of 2560 cores in the Navi 22 GPU.
Thus, we achieve the same core count as the Radeon RX 5700XT. In addition to the number of cores, the GPU is said to have a 192-bit bus interface. Navi 22 GPUs, which are expected to belong to the RX 6900 series, may come with 16 GB GDDR6 memory.
AMD will officially announce the Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards on October 28. With the release of RTX 3000 series and RX 6000 series graphics cards in 2020, there will be many options for hardware enthusiasts. Finally, let’s remind you that NVIDIA is preparing new cards for the Ampere architecture RTX 3000 series.
