PlayStation 4 had a similar set up where CPU got significantly less bandwidth from the GDDR chips than the GPU did.10Gb of fast RAM, 6Gb of slow RAM...
The Nvidia 970 designers are smiling.
5700 XT = 9.754 TFLOPS
This chip is 12 TFLOP...
This thing is more than double the Xbox One X.
Also, 8K support was baked into Navi. It's likely there for 8K web streams or maybe BluRays with a firmware update. Maybe ATSC 3.0 could handle it someday too. Point is, the GPU is ready and able to decode it.
Hype rising for RDNA2. If they can manage this kind of performance with semi-custom then imagine what it can do on an AIB. I'm glad I waited to upgrade.
