The Future of Radeon

We will see Navi transition over to the PC graphics side in a Radeon RX card sometime in the second half of 2019 which is ages away now, especially considering that NVIDIA has its next-gen GTX 11 series right around the corner. We're expecting a launch either specifically on July 30, or sometime in August/September according to many AIB partners that I talked to on the ground at Computex 2018.

Hell, AMD is in no shape to compete against NVIDIA's high-end GeForce GTX 1080 Ti let alone a GTX 11 series card. NVIDIA owns 99% of the high-end market right now, numbers that were confirmed to me by AMD during my interview with them at Computex. This won't change in 2018, nor will it change in 2019. Vega on 7nm won't compete with GTX 1080 Ti or the next-gen Turing GPU architecture, and neither will Navi.

Vega never found a place in the market and it definitely wasn't a gamers GPU, period. As it stands, Navi is at least 12-18 months away right now for a Radeon card, and with sources telling TweakTown exclusively that it will be a Radeon RX 500 successor, it looks like NVIDIA has the enthusiast/high-end graphics card market for the next 3-4 years at the very least.

Navi will be the last GCN-based architecture by AMD before they shift onto bigger and better things, but we truly need a new R300 series moment. AMD is capable of it, but they need to drive the resources into RTG and stay dedicated to beating NVIDIA. The problem is that this is many years away from now, but it's something they need to not lose focus on.
