  1. Apparently, Sapphire did an oopsie! https://www.overclock3d.net/news/gpu_displays/sapphire_rep_spills_the_beans_on_amd_s_radeon_navi_lineup/1?fbclid=IwAR3lTAhgx1TJnyeN5rvj4WIZH03XHn_QEVB5H64drZITsfhWMBRMGJsH3zM One of their reps apparently said there is a 2080 level Navi GPU for 500 and a 2060 level one for 400.  Kinda weird that the 2060 level one is 100 less.  Also, Navi is apparently launching on July 7th.

      In the interview, the Sapphire representative stated that Navi would not support Ray Tracing at a hardware level, placing Navi at a disadvantage to Nvidia's RTX series, though the rep also stated that the Navi is "stronger than the 2070". 


      Reports have claimed that the Sapphire representative confirmed that ray tracing silicon will be added to "next year's new architecture," while suggesting that Navi will not be scaled up to replace the Radeon VII. This claim alleges that the long-running rumours of "big Navi" are false.  

      huh, so PS5 will have Navi with additional raytracing architecture (while the desktop cards won't have them) o_o

      Well, one of the radeon engineers did say they weren't interested in it yet on the desktop side.  They're probably waiting a gen until the tech and support is better.
