AMD has confirmed that it will be unveiling its RDNA 3 GPUs (Radeon RX 7000 Series) in early November, which means we don’t have long to wait for the next batch of graphics cards.
According to Moore’s Law is Dead, the RDNA 3 architecture could use a 3D stacked design to boost performance, potentially resulting in a significant performance boost.
Otherwise, we don’t know too much about the upcoming graphics cards, with AMD successfully keeping the specs under wraps ahead of launch. But we’ll be reporting on all of the breaking news in the coming weeks, as well as the November launch event. Keep this page bookmarked for the latest.
The AMD RDNA 3 graphics cards will be announced on 3rd November 2022 during an online video stream.
AMD’s Senior Vice President, Scott Herkelman, confirmed the news on Twitter.
It’s worth noting that this is just the date the graphics cards will be unveiled. We may have to wait a few additional weeks until the graphics cards are actually available to buy.
The next wave of AMD RDNA 3 graphics cards are expected to see a similar price point to their predecessors. The Radeon RX 6900 XT launched at $999, the RX 6800 XT at $649 and the RX 6700 XT at $479.
That said, it’s entirely possible that AMD could hike up the graphics card prices, especially since Nvidia increased the cost of the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 cards compared to their predecessors.
The AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards will use the upcoming AMD RDNA 3 architecture. Graphics card tipster Moore’s Law is Dead (via NotebookCheck) claims that RDNA 3 will use a stacked design with a 5nm GDC (Graphics Complex Die) and 6nm MCDs (Memory Complex Die). Such a design is reminiscent of the recent AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor, which also used a chip-stacking process.
The YouTube channel even suggests that the upgraded architecture could result in up to a 130% boost to rasterization performance for the flagship GPU compared to the AMD RX 6900 XT. We can’t verify this information right now, but it’s very impressive if true.
Three GPUs are said to be in production, including the Navi 31, 32, and 33. Unlike the new Nvidia RTX 4000 Series, it seems like AMD will launch mid-range and budget options alongside its high-end graphics card.
Moore’s Law is Dead also suggests the AMD RDNA 3 graphics cards could have a substantially superior power efficiency compared to their Nvidia counterparts, although the exact figures haven’t been revealed just yet. So if you’re worried about your electricity bill spiralling out of control, it may well be worth looking at the RDNA 3 GPUs instead of Nvidia’s RTX 4090 offering.
