AMD's RDNA 2 graphics cards reportedly contain more features than its console variant

Is there a reason why they are called "custom RDNA 2" on consoles.



Read more about AMD's PC RDNA 2 architecture and its rumoured superiority to its console counterparts.

I hope AMD changes their course with GPU drivers and take their time to offer a very polished product concerning bugs, monitor HDR support, FreeSync...

I would be surprised if the RDNA2 we see for desktop ISN'T different in a lot of good ways compared to the console. They could hardly charge €700 for a just GPU that is in a €500 console that has nothing more than a clock speed boost.

Well MS and Sony would have guaranteed contracts to sell or at least pay x amount of money regardless of how many sold so AMD would still turn a profit.

Not really surprised, The SOC only has so much room, I'd expect the fully fledged GPU to be more powerful with more features.

Hopefully they price them to really give nvidia something to be worried about

I would imagine it will be significantly larger tbh. The die, like.

I remember Cerny mentioning something of a similar layout will likely launch on PC around the same time, and trying to differentiate the PS4 silicon from it, so I'd guess a 36CU part is coming to replace the 5700XT, but yeah they'd also need something outclassing the 52(?) CU part in the XsX so I'd guess there's a monster ~64CU part coming too.

Yeah. There have been rumours of a "2080Ti killer" coming from AMD. I guess that's the fatty then.
