    Phoronix: AMD To Land Support For Navi 14 Into The Upcoming Mesa 19.2 Driver Stack

    As a possible sign that AMD Navi 14 graphics cards could be coming sooner rather than later, support for Navi 14 is slated to be back-ported to the Mesa 19.2 release due out in a few weeks rather that entered its feature freeze earlier this month rather than waiting for next quarter's Mesa 19.3...

    What about
    ARB_gl_spirv / ARB_spirv_extensions?
    as of AMD is usually less then week behind Intel in openGL extension support

      Not happening for 19.2, particularly with the RadeonSI NIR bits still not default, would be too late for them to change.

        Is Navi14 the cheaper or the more expensive variant of Navi?

          I don't believe we have announced it yet.

            Seems to be the cheaper ones - which emerged in benchmarks.
            If that is true it may be called RX 5600 (XT) with 2/3 of the 36 CUs of the Navi 10, i.e. 24.
            After a leak Navi 12 would be a bigger version - for RX 5800 (XT).
            Maybe those `secret service' habits should make it more popular ???
            But possibly we will get those info a few weeks after the anouncement.

              Ah, sorry for asking then. But considering that it's dumber than the Navi10 (because of its non-functional NGG), I would wager that this is gonna be the cheaper version.

                It seems very odd that AMD would release a GPU with broken NGG *after* Navi 10...

                  All the leaks consistently say it's the cheaper version. In fact this article by Michael says it's intended to compete with the 580/590/1660.

                    I don't think anyone mentioned non-functional NGG, did they ? All Marek said was that the 19.2 pull request was using non-NGG paths because there wasn't going to be time to debug the GDS hangs and still get into 19.2.
