Like Ryzen, AMD’s Big Navi is “going to similarly disrupt 4K” gaming

AMD is looking to disrupt high-end PC graphics in the same way that its Ryzen processors have disrupted the high-end CPU market. Speaking at a recent AMD RX 5600 XT briefing, Radeon product management lead, Mithun Chandrasekhar, hinted at the red team’s plan for 4K domination once it’s got the mainstream market dealt with.

The RX 5600 XT was originally marketed as Ultimate 1080p Gaming’ though, after a swift response to Nvidia’s RTX 2060 price drop, it quickly became a very capable 1440p gaming GPU instead. Funny how the exact same graphics card was able to do that with just a little software update, in spite of AMD scorn being poured on Nvidia for intentionally crippling its own GPUs…

But the reason AMD has given for the way it’s specced out the Radeon 5000-series is because it wants to cater to the vast majority of PC gamers first, before trying to take on the might of Nvidia at the very high performance end of the graphics card market. But just as Dr. Lisa Su has confirmed that Big Navi is coming, Chandrasekhar is confident that the high-end Radeon graphics are going to disrupt 4K.
