AMD Navi release date, news and rumors

The AMD Navi graphics cards have gone on to become AMD’s most popular and most successful graphics cards yet. Not long after the release of the AMD Radeon VII and the GPUs’ reveal at Computex 2019, AMD showcased the series’ first two cards as mid-range GPUs that rival Nvidia’s highly popular Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 at E3 2019, alongside the Radeon RX 5500 for 1080p gaming. And, things have gone swimmingly for the AMD Navi since then.
