Radeon 5700 Navi doesn’t have Ray tracing

A different angle look

The Navi paper-launched when I was still in sunny Tuscany taking a break from the tech, but here are some of the things that have caught my attention. No Ray tracing, no high end, and only performance/mainstream, not much benefit from 7nm, and nine months late to fight 2070 are just a part of it.
AMD fights 9 month old card

Most AMD friendly press didn’t point out there were a few elephants in the room. AMD is comparing its card that is about to ship on July 7 (still in the future) versus 2070 card that has been out for three quarters. It would not be much of an effort to release the 2070 updated version which can easily beat AMD’s 5700 Navi next-gen card. Nvidia is working on Ampere that will be a 7nm and possibly stir the pot.

The Geforce 2080, 2080 TI and Titan RTX remain the kings and Navi cannot touch it. Bear in mind that we repeatedly told you that Navi is a mainstream a Radeon 5000 series replacement rather than a high-end card. A Navi based high end might be coming at a later date.
