AMD’s new top graphics card “Big Navi” Nvidia should actually drive the worry lines on the forehead. But if you take a look at the current rumor situation, you will find that AMD’s hardware revolution faces a major problem.
Big Navi vs. Nvidia RTX 3000: no chance for AMD?
The exchange of blows between Nvidia and AMD will soon enter the next round. So far, it was assumed that AMD’s Nvidia killer could certainly live up to its name. Again, new rumors claim the opposite. What’s going on here?
As GameStar reports, the rumor mill is boiling over on the topic. It is currently assumed that AMD’s Big Navi is at about the same level as the current RTX 2080 Ti, but previously there were performance values that were more than 50 percent superior to the Nvidia card.
In addition, Nvidia’s latest generation of graphics cards, the RTX 3000, will also be launched soon. The first GPUs should be available as early as September. The new top model, the RTX 3090 and 3080 Ti, is said to offer around 50 percent more power compared to the current RTX 2080 Ti in the TimeSpy Extreme benchmark from 3DMark.

AMD Big Navi not an Nvidia killer? One should not praise the day before evening
If this information is correct, AMD would manage to drastically increase the performance of its GPUs, but would be around a generation behind the performance level of Nvidia. At the same time, however, you should keep in mind that so far there are no reliable statements about the performance of the graphics cards – only unconfirmed rumors are currently circulating.

In addition, the price should also play an important role for many customers. If AMD manages to throw a real price breaker into the graphics card ring, Nvidia could get a problem despite the higher performance. After all, very few people buy one of the top models of the industry leader, the majority of graphics card sales are still implemented in the entry-level and mid-range segment.
AMD’s Big Navi shouldn’t be written off. However, it remains to be seen how much the new graphics cards will actually achieve in the end – and above all how much they will cost.
