    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...

    Yeah, you have to read between the lines a bit. Sometimes the GFX core in a family of GPUs is exactly the same between versions, but Navi12 and 14 had some GFX core changes relative to Navi10, and have different compiler targets (gfx1010, 1011, 1012). That usually means slightly different code paths as well.

    Thanks for the feedback; good to hear your 5700XT is working well for you.

    That's a misunderstanding on my part then. I assumed it needed the non-NGG path because NGG was broken. Glad to hear that this isn't the case. Though if Navi14 uses the same architecture and belongs to the same family, it still sounds surprising that the same code path that worked on Navi10 doesn't work there.

    By the way you guys did a really god job on Navi10, I'm a happy customer of the RX 5700XT.

    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.

    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.
