Report: Big Navi Engineering Sample Points to 16 GB GDDR6 Memory

AMD announced the keynote dates for both Zen 3 and Big Navi, with the GPU keynote happening on the 28th of October at 10am pacific time. Of course, the rumor mill was already running, but now it’s kicking things up a notch.

The latest rumor comes from the Bilibili forums, where a picture of what is said to be a Big Navi graphics card has surfaced, albeit very much in an engineering sample state. Therefore, we have to emphasize that this is very much an unconfirmed source, and there is little here that really feeds us with new information.

The information we do see on this board is a sticker that lists “typical Samsung 16 Gb,” pointing towards the use of 16 Gb memory stacks. Considering there are likely eight of these, this would add up to a total memory capacity of, you guessed it, 16 GB. Near this sticker is another that reads “Eng. Sample, Typical XT AB ASIC” (if I’m reading it correctly).  Of course, anyone can stick these notes on a wacky-looking PCB.

If this 16 GB runs over a 256-bit memory interface, then it won’t provide a particularly huge memory throughput, and certainly nowhere near as fast as Nvidia’s RTX 3080 and RTX 3090.
