AMD Navi: BoardDesign is already completed? AMD Navi: Sampling phase has started The latest rumors around Navi come from the 3DCenter forum . This is spoken by "Navi Full" (Navi 10) and "Navi Mid" (Navi 12). The designations basically coincide with earlier rumors. According to this information, AMD is currently in the sampling phase and is said to have completed the board design shortly before Christmas. Previous information has assumed that the board partners should receive the respective samples much later. Nevertheless, the release for Navi 12 should take place at the end of the second quarter of 2019 and for Navi 10 in the middle of the third quarter of 2019, which in principle seems contradictory. However, it should be noted that the statements from the forum are probably not primary sources, but have been passed on. The release dates could have changed accordingly - if the rumors surround the sampling phase - and are therefore preferred. Nevertheless, this information should be treated with extreme caution. For CES 2019 AMD may provide new information about Navi and may show a new release window.
