After the announcement of the Radeon RX 5600 XT at CES 2020, many of us started to wonder if AMD is going to release any GPU to compete against the green team in the high-end graphics segment, notably the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2080 Ti models.
The 7nm Navi 10 GPU lineup that we’ve seen until now is mainly targeting the 1440P and 1080P gaming segment but AMD has finally shed some light on this at a post-keynote interview with AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su.
In response to Venturebeat’s Dean Takahashi’s question on real-time ray tracing, Dr. Lisa Su stated that ray tracing is something we can expect to see even on AMD’s discrete graphics as we go through 2020. AMD has been investing heavily in ray tracing and the ecosystem around it, which includes the console partners.
Dr. Lisa Su also confirmed the high-end Navi GPU that AMD is currently working on, which is an unannounced product which she doesn’t usually comment on.
