    Contradicting earlier rumors of an October launch, the Wccftech gang is claiming AMD has told partners its 7nm Navi GPU will launch “exactly a month” after the debut of its next-generation Ryzen processors. With the conundrum of low yields somewhat out of the way (based on the availability of the Radeon VII), the author is confident AMD will have no issues getting the card out within the third quarter this year.

    I have been told that AMD’s Navi GPU is at least one whole month behind AMD’s 7nm Ryzen launch, so if the company launches the 3000 series desktop processors at Computex like they are planning to, you should not expect the Navi GPU to land before early August. The most likely candidates for launch during this window are Gamescom and Siggraph. I would personally lean towards Gamescom simply because it is a gaming product and is the more likely candidate, but anything can happen with AMD!

    Supposedly the NDA for the launch of Ryzen 3000 starts at the end of March so when exactly that will launch is still somewhat unclear and supposedly the launch of Ryzen 3000 higher core count is later then the initial launch.

    So anything goes on that Navi launch date ;)

    Give how lukewarm (at best) the reception to the 2000 series has been, with Nvidia even admitting that sales have been disappointing, there is little chance of them drastically raising the price next gen. It will either be the same (more likely) or a less (not as likely).
