Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will be released on November 3rd

Recently, Scott Herkelman, senior vice president and general manager of AMD’s Radeon Graphics Group, announced on his Twitter account that the RDNA 3 architecture GPU will be launched on November 3, 2022. Obviously, this is the long-awaited Radeon RX 7000 series GPU for many players.

According to AMD, the RDNA 3 architecture will use a 5nm process and a small chip design. It is its first consumer-grade GPU in an MCM multi-chip package, and the performance per watt is more than 50% higher than that of the RDNA 2 architecture. Among them, Navi 31 and Navi 32 will use MCM multi-chip packages, equipped with one GCD and four or six MCD, and will use two different processes at the same time, the former is TSMC’s 5nm, and the latter is 6nm. Equipped with the optimized next-generation Infinity Cache, it not only provides higher density and lower power consumption, but also improves effective bandwidth and hit rate.

There are rumors that the frequency of the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics card is close to 4GHz, which is higher than the frequency of about 3GHz achieved by the current Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card. For a GPU, such frequencies are quite staggering. According to Sam Naffziger earlier, AMD integrated some design methods of the CPU microarchitecture into the GPU design, such as simplifying the physical makeup of the chip and making higher frequencies possible.
