Enthusiasts who were disappointed by AMD’s latest Radeon effort may have to wait until the end of the year before determining whether the company has a better trick up their sleeve: a new rumor originating from French hardware website Cowcotland suggests next-generation Navi products will actually be released in the Fall, contrary to earlier gossip suggesting a mid-2019 landing. TechPowerUp postulates the delay relates to AMD's 7 nm foundry allocation for the year.

We still don't know what to expect out of Navi. Past rumors have been mixed—there have been reports that Navi will be a mid-range GPU, while AMD has made comments that suggest it could be compete at the high-end. "We believe, we will be very competitive overall and that includes the high-end of the GPU market. Obviously there are new products out there from our competition. We will have our set of new products as well and we will be right there in the mix," AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su said at the 22nd Annual Credit Suisse Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference.
