AMD Teases Radeon RX 7000 GPU Based on RDNA 3 Architecture
Right as we thought Dr. Lisa Su was about to wrap up AMD’s Ryzen 7000 reveal event, she pulled a classic “One More Thing” out of nowhere and showed us a very vague tease of the upcoming Radeon RX 7000 GPU. And I say GPU because that’s all we got, a very dark picture of some RX 7000 series graphics card, no other details were shared.
In the picture above, we can see that a black coloring scheme has been used with a touch of red on the right. However, no power connector is featured so we cannot get any expected TDPs. Besides, we still do not know the actual model for this leaked GPU. Although, the design remains similar to the RX 6950XT.
The RDNA 3 lineup will be manufactured on TSMC’s 5nm process node featuring 3 GPUs, namely:
The upgraded architectural design will feature a brand new Compute Unit an optimized graphics pipeline, and the next-gen of Infinity Cache.
Dr. Lisa Su states that AMD’s Radeon RX 7000 GPUs are currently running at AMD labs showing that a launch is expected soon. She then states that the GPU will be 50% more efficient than the last gen RDNA 2.
The flagship from AMD’s RX 7000 Radeon lineup features 12288 Stream Processors and 24GB of GDDR6 VRAM. Similarly, we got our hands on an in-game render featuring the world’s first RDNA 3 GPU paired with a Zen4 processor from AMD.
AMD’s CEO then wraps up the show by demoing some Lies of P gameplay using the RDNA 3 graphics card in question. Though, this was very vague too since we didn’t see any performance metrics on screen so nothing can be said. Dr. Lisa concluded that she wishes she could share more regarding the RDNA 3 architecture. This means that another reveal showcasing AMD’s next-gen graphics is en route.
