New rumors about the GPU screw claim that AMD is about to launch Radeon RX 3080, RX 3070 and RX 3060 graphics cards to compete with Nvidia's new Turing models – and potentially big on price, if this loss is something from
It comes from AdoredTV, the YouTube channel that has been the source of several losses in the past – some of which quite accurate – and has poured the alleged details of the AMD Ryzen 3000 processors that we have already highlighted.  The three presumed graphics cards – remember, take all this with a considerable dose of salt – are the incoming efforts of 7 nm directed by the RX 3080 based on the Navi 10 GPU.
Obviously, the specifications are approximate at this point, but the argument is that this card will have 8 GB of video RAM GDDR6, with a TDP of 1
According to AdoredTV, the RX 3080 should be competitive in terms of performance with the RTX 2070. (Or the latest generation of Nvidia's GTX 1080, which there is still a lot of kicking around from all accounts.) This makes the price a little open: we'll talk more in a moment.
Then there is the RX 3070, based on the Navi 12 GPU, and also with 8GB of GDDR6, with a TDP slightly lower than 120W, launched at $ 200 (about £ 155, AU $ 275). As for the performance, it is apparently competitive with the AMD Vega 56 GPU, or the Nvidia side of the fence, the GTX 1070 (and the RTX 2060, when it emerges – or even GTX 2060, depending on how Nvidia brand the product).  The rounding is the RX 3060, also built around Navi 12, but in this case it will be a reduced rotation, with the board with 4 GB of GDDR6 and a TDP of 75 W – no need to hook it up to the PSU. This will be competitive with the AMD Radeon RX 580 and the Nvidia GTX 1060, while being priced at $ 129 (about £ 100, AU $ 180)
Is the price right?
Is the price right?
So, the price: for the RX 3080 to be launched at $ 250 (around £ 195, AU $ 345) – and competitive with the RTX 2070, which is typically talking about twice as much that price – it would rather be something.
Of course, all this is just speculation, and this early indication of prices is likely to be guessing rather than anything else. But it is interesting that AMD is apparently trying to be highly competitive, but then again, it should not be a surprise.
After all, we recently heard AMD say it will be "very competitive overall and that includes the high-end GPU market segment", with some impressive GPUs launched in 2019.
As always, we'll just have to wait and see. The other interesting point are the names that this voice says that AMD will use: at least for us, the RX 3000 range has more than a few "Spinal Tap" (in the sense that it is "a better" respect to the 2000 series of Nvidia Turing products).
