AMD Navi 48 XTX Variant Spotted, Likely For The Top RDNA4 Offering

Many rumors has pointed to AMD potentially skipping the high-end GPU market altogether in the next iteration of its RDNA architecture, as the information known so far has indicated that Team Red is only preparing two silicon designs: Navi 44 and Navi 48. The latter is the higher-end part (unlike the previous naming convention), and recently a shipping manifest has revealed a sub-variant called Navi 48 XTX.

What you’re seeing next can be a complete alphabet soup but bear with us. The relevant entry in this list reads:

GRAPHIC CARD: NAVI48 G28201 DT XTX REVB-PRE-CORRELATION AO PLATSI TT(SAMSUNG)-Q2 2024-3A – 102- G28201

The important part lies on the first half of the text string, which indicates this is a part containing the Navi 48 XTX chip. The exact nature and specs surrounding this silicon is still very much anyone’s guesses, but the information gather so far has pointed to it using a modest 18Gbps GDDR6 memory (while NVIDIA is moving its next-gen lineup towards GDDR7), and may serve as the chip for the RX 8800/8700 SKUs. Samsung is also mentioned here, which presumably is responsible for the VRAM components.

As for when will AMD be launching RDNA4, rumors indicate that the chipmaker will not introduce the lineup before Q1 2025. NVIDIA is said to first announce its Blackwell (RTX 50) lineup in Q4 2024, with retail launch set in early 2025. This may give Team Red enough time to respond with price cuts should it requires so, as Team Green is getting increasingly dominant in the AIB markets.

Pokdepinion: Hopefully it’s competitive – the GPU market can do with some proper competition right now.
