We’ve been waiting for months now for AMD Big Navi, or more specifically RDNA 2. AMD’s next-generation graphics card architecture has been consistently touted by Team Red as the answer to Nvidia in the high-end, which supposedly delivers true 4K gaming performance.
And because it’s the same architecture behind both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, there’s an idea that game developers can more easily optimize for AMD’s PC graphics cards too.
Regardless, all the rumors and speculation ends today as AMD finally lifts the veil on its new graphics card lineup. Will there be competition all the way to the top? Will AMD have an answer for the ultra-affordable RTX 3070? We’ll just have to wait and see.

These 2 cards were masterpieces of 1440p and they even looked good. Can’t wait to see the new @ AMDGaming hotness later in the day. pic.twitter.com/jjYNp9vEfrOctober 28, 2020
[11:15am]: If AMD can meaningfully challenge Nvidia at the top end, it means I have a choice what brand of graphics card I use Bugsnax, and only Bugsnax about.
[11:03am]: Admittedly, it’s a longshot, but it would be pretty cool if AMD could announce a technology like Nvidia Broadcast today. I swear to you, that software has personally been a lifesaver for me during the pandemic.
[10:55am]: I wonder if the unveiling of AMD’s ray tracing graphics cards will have ray tracing.
[10:45am]: I still think the AMD Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT are some of the most underrated graphics cards in history. Remember when they played chicken with Nvidia in terms of prices and got Team Green to slash prices on the RTX Super cards in July 2019? Good times. Hopefully that will happen again this time with the Ampere cards.
[9:50am]: Okay, I’ve gotten coffee and functionally awake, can’t wait to see if AMD can live up to expectations. Both the RTX 3090 and the RTX 3080 blew me away a bit so it would be pretty great if AMD had a definitive answer.
