AMD's next-gen Arcturus GPU should find a new home inside of the next wave of Radeon Instinct accelerators, in which AMD is using Vega GPUs right now, adn even in the first half of 2020. But AMD needs to spice up the HPC market with a new GPU and now we're hearing proper whispers of the Arcturus GPU.

The news is coming from HWiNFO in its new beta build v6.13-3945) that "added preliminary support for AMD Arcturus". Komachi also posted on Twitter in what looks to be a new Arcturus-powered AMD Radeon Instinct M100 accelerator, replacing the current flagship Vega 20-powered Radeon Instinct M60 accelerator.

Arcturus should be made on the refreshed 7nm+ node compared to the 7nm node used for both Navi 10 and Vega 20 (in the Radeon RX 5500 and RX 5700 series and Radeon Instinct accelerators). We should expect Arcturus to power the HPC side of Radeon, while Navi will continue swinging for gamers moving into 2020 with Navi 20 and beyond.
