The new AMD RDNA GPU architecture currently has only one core Navi 10, and the graphics card has only one high-end RX 5700 series. This is obviously not enough. Especially in the main market, the Polaris Polaris architecture has been in place for several years. It is time to change.
As early as June, before the release of the RX 5700 series, the Navi 14 core appeared in the Linux driver and was exposed in the CompuBench test in July.
According to the latest news,The Mesa 3D Graphics Library open source driver support for the Navi 14 core has been accelerated, and is expected to be completed in the Mesa 19.2 release that will be released in recent weeks.
The candidate for the Mesa 19.2 driver is scheduled for August 27th, September 3rd, September 10th. This schedule is very tight for a GPU core that is still under development, but on the other hand The Navi 14 core is quite mature and the release time is expected to be advanced.
The next major version of the Mesa 19.3 candidate will wait until October, and the final candidate will be scheduled for November 5. It is clear that Navi 14 does not want to wait until that time.
Navi 14 should be a smaller version of Navi 10, the process is certainly 7nm, perhaps named RX 5600 series or RX 5500 series, and eventually replace RX 580/590.
