Even if this doesn't outperform the 3080 it's a good thing for consumers. I'm not sure if I'd buy one as my previous Radeon experiences haven't been great but it'll be interesting to see what happens. Finally, something good for 2020...

AMD confuses me with so many seeming parallel product lines with different naming conventions...5700XT, the Vega twins, Radeon VII, all within a short window, and I honestly have no idea how they stacked up against each other...

Is RDNA 2 the same thing as "Big Navi" and the same thing as Radeon 6000?

AMD has been horrible with naming here. From my understanding:

Navi is the architecture that RDNA (5x series) is based on. RDNA 2 (6x series) is still Navi, but an evolution of it.

Big Navi is RDNA 2, but scaled up to a bigger chip (the bigger the chip the more FPUs, the more performance).

There will also be a smaller RDNA 2 chip for lower performance use.

Custom versions of this in new XBox and Playstation too.
