AMD's CEO has confirmed that a high-end Navi graphics card will be launched this year.

In a video interview entitled "The Bring Up", published on YouTube by AMD, Lisa Su confirmed that the high-end GPU, which had previously been called "Nvidia killer" will be available later in the year.

This is the first concrete confirmation we have had that AMD is sure to unleash its great graphic firepower this year.

At CES, the CEO stressed the importance of a high-end GPU for AMD and said that "you should expect that we will launch a high-end Navi card, although I usually don't comment on products without warning."

So at least now we have a confirmation, although it's not really a surprise for anyone who has recently followed the developments of AMD.

Battle of the flagships

Many speculations on the card in question, including the fact that it could be 30% faster than Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti.

Obviously, AMD must move to launch the new GPU to prevent it from competing with the RTX 3080 Ti (which could be up to 50% faster than its predecessor Turing).

In case you're wondering, Nvidia's next-generation Ampere GPUs should be launched in the second half of 2020.
