Architectures aren't designed for consoles. They are general purpose.570/80 replacements. Basically next gen 7nm console development lifted over to the PC market.
As such reasonably likely to be sensibly competitive in the low /mid range market. Hopefully they can get the power draw lower than polaris.
Customization take place aggregate level (how many units, Memory type and bandwidth) for the specific application (APU, desktop GPU, console).
I don't expect much from Navi. I remember the roadmaps where there was Vega, Navi, and "Next Generation". I never got any indication from AMD that Navi was anything more than tweaked Vega. The unamed "Next Generation" is where real change might happen.
