AMD just launched its new Radeon VII graphics card, but that'll be it for GPU releases for the company until the new Navi GPU architecture and its unveiling that should take place at Computex 2019.

According to the latest rumors, Navi will be unveiled in June at Computex, but won't be in gamers hands until October. This makes sense as the unveiling will have to take place after Sony and Microsoft announce and detail their respective next-gen consoles that will feature custom Zen 2 processors and custom Navi GPUs.

An October retail launch allows AMD to build larger numbers of Navi graphics cards especially considering they'll be on 7nm and most fab time for 7nm is being chewed up incredibly quick. AMD will be using GDDR6 memory which will see AMD having many more Navi cards than Radeon VII, which are according to our exclusive story, less than 5000 units in total.

Navi will be a successor to Polaris and should roll out with Vega like performance. We're probably going to see $399 to $599 priced cards that will replace Vega 56 and Vega 64, with far better power and thermals than Vega which is shocking, even on 7nm with Radeon VII.

As I've said before, all roads lead to Navi...
