Marek Olsak added a little remark on the addition of Navi 12 assistance in a commit to the Mesa source. He defined it as “trivial and urgent”. Trivial is understandable as Mesa may not have a hard time supporting AMD Navi 12 out of the box. Much more interesting is “Urgent.” Mesa 19.2 has been added to the update. In October, however, Mesa 19.3 is planned to arrive. Adding Navi 12 assistance to Mesa 19.2 means that in just a few weeks, Navi 12 could arrive. Wait, let’s watch.
Most likely, the AMD Navi 12 graphics card will be called the Radeon RX 5800 or 5900, going up against the top-dogs of NVIDIA, the GeForce RTX 2080 Super and the 2080 Ti. This is a much-needed card as there has been no contest in the enthusiastic section over the past 2-3 years. The 2080 Ti is a solid card, but it sells north of the $1,000 mark (1 lake in India) that does not justify the performance advantage of 15 percent over the 2080 S. The RTX 2070 Super is about 20-25% quicker, but it charges almost a third of the cost of the Ti. If AMD succeeds in challenging the Turing flagship, we can expect a 2080 Ti Super or cost reductions to the current one.
What is Mesa 3D?
Mesa is an alternative graphics engine that runs on Linux for AMD graphics cards. AMD’s own AMD GPU drivers… well, to put it nicely, they’re sucking on Linux. Optimized by Mesa for improved efficiency. Even if you’re not a regular user of Linux, Mesa drivers are the best way for consumers running the CEMU emulator with an AMD processor and GPU.
