Less than a month after AMD introduced the world to the super-fast Vega VII graphics card, the company’s CEO, Dr Lisa Su dropped another major announcement, confirming the company’s new line of Navi GPUs will arrive in 2019. AMD is still riding high on the success of their CES 2019 announcements, capping off its most profitable year since 2011.

During AMD's Q4 Earnings Call, CEO Lisa Su said: “Our gaming growth will be driven by new products. We would see that as we go through this year and with our Radeon 7 launch, as well as our Navi launches on the gaming side.”

Noticed how she used the word launches instead of launch?

This could mean that the new Navi GPUs based on AMD’s 7nm architecture may feature on more than just PCs. Those multiple launches can easily hint towards new graphics on next-gen consoles. Navi’s 7-nm architecture is rumoured to replace the Polaris architecture on the on the desktop end in the RX 580 and RX 590. AMD’s 7-nm chips are also rumoured to power the next-gen Xbox or PlayStation consoles.
