AMD Nashira Summit, Nashira Point and Nashira Creek codenames leak with references to consumer gaming, Radeon Pro and a possible mobile variant mentioned
In January, it emerged that AMD was developing at least one graphics card under the codename Nashira. During the same month, a Nashira Summit entry appeared on the Ashes of the Singularity database, albeit without any details about what Nashira Summit was. Now, Roland Quandt claims to have discovered references to several Nashira Summit and Nashira Point GPUs, including some consumer gaming models.
Additionally, Quandt asserts that there is a model called Nashira Creek. Unfortunately, Quandt could not provide any further details about what Nashira Summit, Point and Creek are. The list of Nashira names that Quandt has found is as follows:
- AMD Nashira Summit A0
- AMD Nashira Point XTX
- AMD Nashira Point XT consumer gaming
- AMD Nashira Point XL
- AMD Nashira Point GLXTA
- AMD Nashira Point GLXL
- AMD Nashira Creek XM
Reading into the names somewhat, the A0 at the end of Nashira Summit implies that is in the first stages of development. Additionally, the 'M' suffix in Nashira Creek XM may denote a mobile GPU. Similarly, AMD uses 'GL' for its Radeon Pro GPUs.
While there has been speculation that Nashira Point are next-generation GPUs, it could be another codename for AMD's Navi 21-based cards. The RX 6900 XT uses the Navi 21 XTX chip for example, with AMD basing the RX 6800 XT on the Navi 21 XT. Likewise, the Navi 21 XL is at the heart of the RX 6800.
If that is the case, then these Nashira Point GL variants may be upcoming Radeon Pro GPUs that AMD has based on Navi 21 chips. Nashira Summit and Nashira Creek are anyone's guess currently, though.
