"According to WCCFTech, there are at least three different Navi GPUs set for release. Navi 10, which will utilise a 7nm manufacturing process, will likely be the first Navi graphics card to make it out the gate, and is set to arrive in either the second half of 2019 or early 2020."
"Something called Navi 14 will then follow this “soon after”, but Navi 20, AMD’s first high-end Navi GPU based on the 7nm process, probably won’t arrive until later in 2020, and may even be as late as 2021."
I somehow get the feeling if the Navi PS5 rumors are true, that it's possible we will see a 10TF XB Scarlet late 2019 or early 2020, with a 14TF PS5 launch sometime in 2020. This allows XB to launch slightly ahead if not alongside the PS5. Based on Phil's future "consoles" remark, I also wonder if we could see a 2021 XB Scarlet X.
The dates line up way too good for next gen. The mention of 'even as late as 2021' has me thinking that would line up with the typical XB 4 year cycle, and XB1X owners could look at it as they have the choice to keep their console with it's FC, upgrade immediately to a 10TF/60FPS version, or wait a year or two and have the 'mid gen' 20TF upgrade again.
All XB would have to do is announce both at the same time like they did with XB1S and XB1X, and make sure it happens after PS5 is announced. They will end up with the cheaper console right off the bat and also end up with the most powerful console about a year after the PS5 launches.
Then again, maybe XB holds off altogether until 2021 and let's the PS5 launch at 14TF holiday 2020 and then they launch XB Scarlet holiday 2021 with 20TF.
XB1 vs PS4 = 42% TF gap
PRO vs XB1X = 42% TF gap
10TF vs 14TF = 40% TF gap
14TF vs 20TF = 42% TF gap
