With Navi still being GCN it is probably wont be much of a challenger to current nvidia anyway.
Not sure this is relevant, even with the same architecture, improvement can be very big, and with all consoles being GCN, I think it might be a good idea to keep the same.

On a different note, this is the same like saying that all intel cpu suck as they still use 40 years old x86 architecture, while we all know there have been multiple improvements to the original architecture.
The same is true for GCN, there have been multiple improvements over the years.

Your comment is nothing but speculation at this point.
Are you an engineer?

I don't think so.

Typical of someone with a greeneye.

Rumours & Speculation claim its delayed. Hopefully not, but AMD get it right this time around. We need very competitive GPUs and now with the DLSS flop, its now or never. :D

Navi is NOT GOING TO BE GCN...

NAVI IS A BRAND NEW GPU ARCHITECTURE FROM THE GROUND UP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

not a fan boy either, im using a evga gtx 1080 hybrid gaming 8gb card right now, but im sick of nvidias gpus... high cost, and rtx is not even a decent upgrade for me, and the rtx 2080 is only maybe a 30-40% performance increase from my gtx 1080..

and price of 700-900 bucks... NO THANKS NVIDIA.. ILL WAIT AND SEE WHAT AMD DOES WITH NAVI IN OCTOBER

Initially, Navi appeared on AMD's slides as a next-gen architecture. They've been silent since, so I'm really not sure what Navi is anymore.

Edit: This is what the roadmap looks like currently: https://wccftech.com/amd-radeon-update-7nm-vega-2018-navi-2019/
Next-gen is only what comes after Navi, so Navi is still the architecture that doesn't scale to high-end :( (And yes, I know it's wtftech, but that slide appears on other sites as well)

Vega was hyped to be completely new uArc as well, NCU instrad of GCN. We all know how that went.

this is exactly the scenario I think it might go (revised and redesigned gcn),though Navi is gonna be a purely gaming architecture,not compute oriented like Vega.

Do you remember when?
The slides I can find from back to 2016 only states "next gen memory" for Navi.
I remember it was the first announcements mentioning Vega. Either the slides have been pulled or my memory is playing tricks on me, but I couldn't find those slides at a quick search.

Edit: Even so, it's pretty clear there's no "next gen memory" to be unveiled this year, so I'm still not sure what Navi is supposed to be.

HERE:
I have also been told that Navi will be a new microarchitecture (in other words the first AMD Radeon uArch to not be based on GCN).
NAVI New GPU Design

Unless I am not reading this right, its going to be a version of Navi, maybe the high end or maybe the midrange that will be a brand new GPU. But recently rumours claim Navi is delayed. So who knows. But this is the source nevertheless. Mark my Words, a new GPU Design by AMD will not be GCN Based. PERIOD. :D

Bare in mind that GCN is a lot like x86. It's an extensible framework with unified instructions that have been expanded over time. In Vega, they hugely changed the compute units but are still calling it GCN. In Raven Ridge, they replaced UVD and VCE with Video Core Next that does both functions.

Navi is a new architecture (just like Vega was) but that doesn't necessarily mean it significantly deviates from GCN. That's a good thing because people still rocking 7970s will still get continued support.

I agree it's a good thing to a certain extent, IF they can remain more than competitive vs. Nvidia high end GPUs.
AMD needs a ZEN type success with its GPU business. :D:D

If GCN can do this I'm all for it. So far they've been trying for years now. No success.

I don't care if Navi isn't a challenger to the RTX 2080ti, I just want a solid card that offers better performance than Vega 64, with less TDP. I don't think that that is a lot to ask...

Well, I wouldn't mind 2080 Ti's level of performance. But certainly not the price ;)
