We're hours away from the first part of the AMD Radeon RX Vega embargo, and only a couple of days away from our full review - and already, we're hearing about AMD's next-gen Navi GPU architecture.

Navi is destined for sometime in 2018, and will be baked onto the much smaller 7nm node - but according to our friends at Fudzilla, AMD will be using some dedicated AI circuitry. This isn't new, as NVIDIA has what it calls Tensor cores in their next-gen Volta-based V100 GPU.

The only news here is that AMD is rumored to be building AI-specific technology onto its next-gen GPU, which will mean AMD is pushing more into data centers and AI applications, and away from gamers. There will be a gaming-based Navi GPU, that I'm sure - but AI is the big thing right now, and AMD would be silly to not capitalize on it.
