A screenshot from the first circuit board for AMD's new Navi graphics card has been leaked online, giving us a first look at what we can expect from this new generation of GPUs. The biggest difference between the former AMD-GPUs and the upcoming Navi is the replacement of the memory device. Unlike the previous GPUs that used HBM2, the AMD uses Navi GPUs GDDR6 memory.
Based on that, this PCB looks like a reference GPU that uses a fan fan, although we can expect a custom double or triple fan version from third-party partners.
The PCB also looks to have room for eight modules, suggesting that this GPU will offer 8GB of total VRAM over a 256-bit memory bus. If so, we can expect this GPU in design to correspond to the RX580.
Unfortunately, the print does not give any indication of the shape size or the frequency / raw current that this GPU will have, so we cannot really compare it to what is currently available in the market. Still, this is a cold leak, and we're pretty sure some AMD fans will find it interesting.
AMD will highlight new details on 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs and NAVI GPUs on Computex 2019, so watch out for more!
Kudos to our reader Metal Messiah to bring it to our attention.
