Interesting!AMD Radeon RX 5000 is hybrid with elements of GCN - "pure" RDNA only in 2020 - Sweclockers

Computex: "RX 5000-serie van AMD wordt hybride van GCN en RDNA, 'pure' RDNA komt met Navi 20" - updateDe Zweedse website SweClockers zou met onbekende bronnen gesproken hebben over de chips van de mid-range Navi-videokaarten die voor de deur staan. Volge...nl.hardware.info
Worth clarifying for the non-Swedophones(?) out there: according to this, Navi 20 ("big Navi") is supposed to be "pure" RDNA, and launch in early 2020. In other words, this is not a "half now, half next generation" situation as the title might make it seem. Still odd to make a hybrid like this, but I guess the architectures are modular enough to plug-and-play the relevant blocks on a driver level as well. This also clarifies the kinda-weird mismatch between RDNA being the architecture for "gaming in the next decade" while there being a "next-gen" arch on the roadmaps for 2020.
I wonder what implications this might have for performance and driver support. One might assume that these first cards will lose driver support earlier, but then again considering how prevalent GCN is I can't see that being for another 5 years or so anyway, by which time they'll be entirely obsolete. Performance enhancements and driver tuning might taper off more quickly, though, unless the relevant parts are RDNA and not GCN.
