Heaven help us if this turns out to be true (likely, he is a fairly well known leaker) and AMD doesn't clearly differentiate RDNA2 cards, which will be capable of DX12U and all that jazz, and RDNA1, which aren't. It's going to be difficult though since AMD can't do like nVidia and have 2 brandings (RTX and GTX), and it'd be market suicide to continue the RX 5000 series brand concurrent with a new RDNA2 RX 6000 brand, especially if nVidia Ampere cards at the revised Navi 10+ price points do support those features.


As always with leaks, treat it with skepticism, but with all signs that next generation cards from AMD and nVidia will land by September, we should see official announcements in the next couple of months, likely July when AMD is expected to officially announce Renoir, Matisse+,  and Zen 3.
