A user on r/AMD has shared alleged data pertaining to AMD’s Navi 22 or Navi 23 GPU, “Navy Flounder.” Following a bit of simple math, the parameters allude to a lower-ranged Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics card that features 40 Compute Units and 2560 stream processors. This happens to be a perfect match for AMD’s current flagship, the Radeon RX 5700 XT.
There’s a disparity in memory specifications, however. While the Radeon RX 5700 XT (and its Anniversary variant) sports a 256-bit memory interface, the Navy Flounder will supposedly swim with a lesser, 192-bit one.
“The number of CUs can be found by multiplying the first three values (so 40 for Navy Flounder),” stblr noted. “Another interesting value is gc_num_tccs, which is the number of texture channel caches and is generally related to the memory bus width (for Navy Flounder it would mean 192-bit), though there are exceptions.”
There are plenty of puzzle pieces missing, but we’d like to think that AMD’s RDNA 2 GPUs will offer surprising performance gains over the current lineup. The company will tell us a lot more during its Radeon event, which is slated for October 28.
