AMD introduces its next-gen GPU on Fortnite
This is quite an innovative move on AMD’s part. What better than to reveal an upcoming GPU in an actual game? The design shows that the RX 6000 is ready to deliver high-end gaming performances, with its triple-fan, giant shroud, and twin 8-pin power connectors.
However, that is all the information there is about the RDNA2 line of GPUs as of now. The company has been quite tight-lipped about their upcoming line of graphics cards. AMD is set to officially reveal the Radeon RX 6000 on their upcoming event on the 28th of October. So, it looks like they will be revealing the details after Nvidia launches their GPUs on the 17th of this month.
With AMD revealing the design of its upcoming GPU, a comparison between this one and the beasts Nvidia has in store becomes inevitable. Unlike AMD, Nvidia has already laid all its cards on the table. Not much is known about the RDNA 2 series in terms of price, build, and memory capacity. However, according to Verge, the upcoming GPUs in the series will have the same architecture as the ones in the upcoming next-gen consoles.
This year has turned out to be great for the world of gaming, with a huge roster of exciting games on the horizon and the launch of next-gen consoles, in addition to the introduction of a line of powerful GPUs from AMD and Nvidia.
