AMD Next Horizon Gaming Live Coverage, Navi and Ryzen 3000

Credit: Tom's HardwareCredit: Tom's HardwareWe're here for live coverage of AMD's Next Horizon Gaming event where we expect to learn more about the company's 7nm Ryzen 3000 processors and Navi GPUs.

AMD has already regaled us with its Ryzen 3000 processors that span from six cores and twelve threads up to 12 cores and 24 threads, all on mainstream motherboards. We expect to learn more from AMD about the X570 motherboard ecosystem, along with more specifics about the Navi GPUs.

    Well, I can say the 5700XT being $450 is lame with ~RTX2070 performance.

    That 8pin +6pin does not give me confidence of Navi being the mainstream offering but their failed attempt at high performance... I just hope I'm wrong and they have something more, but damn that price point makes little sense... Could it be the GDDR6????

    Cheers!

    What makes you say that? That's still $50 less than 2070 MSRP, and $30 than the cheapest 2070 on PCPP at the moment.

    You can find good aftermarket ones (already searched for them as soon as they announced the MSRP) and you can find them for ~470. And they come with a dual fan config instead of blower. I know this is more preference, but I'm really keen on not considering blower style coolers "good" anymore for reference designs.

    EDIT: I did have a good laugh with the streaming demo though.
