AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series Release Date, Pricing, and Spec Rumors

AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series is very popular, offering huge performance gains over previous graphics cards and allowing it to more directly compete with the Nvidia RTX 30 series. Even though the RX 6000 series still sells well, AMD is hard at work on the next-gen Radeon RX 7000 series behind closed doors.

We’ve outlined everything there is to know about the AMD Radeon RX 7000 series right here, including release date and price speculation along with the latest RDNA 3 themed leaks.

When will the AMD Radeon RX 7000 series be released?

While many assumed that AMD would follow up its annual release schedule for the next-gen Radeon RX 7000 series with a reveal in late 2021, but as we now know, that was not the case. In fact, sources suggest the company isn’t expected to make an announcement until sometime in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The rumor comes from Twitter leaker @Broly_X1, who has a decent track record and also correctly predicted the top three talking points at AMD’s Computex 2021 keynote last year. The leaker suggests in a tweet now deleted that AMD is targeting a Q4 2022 launch and suggests that AMD’s Ryzen 7000 chipset will launch “around the same time.”

In a January 2022 earnings call, CEO Dr. Lisa Su provided investors with an insight into how development is going. Dr. Su says the company is looking forward to a strong year as we “grow up our current products and launch our next wave of Zen 4 CPUs and RDNA 3 GPUs.”

Not much more was officially said until mid-September 2022, when amd revealed its next-generation RDNA 3 architecture will be revealed on 3 November 2022with more details to follow “soon”.

This was followed by a press release at the end of October, confirming that the company is set to introduce “AMD RDNA 3 Generation Graphics” at the event, which is scheduled to kick off in 1pm PDT/4pm EDT/8pm GMT in 3 November 2022. The event will provide insight into the company’s new RDNA 3 architecture that will “deliver new levels of performance, efficiency, and functionality to gamers,” and will be streamed via AMD’s website and YouTube for those who want to follow it live.

Given the fact that Nvidia RTX 4080 will launch less than two weeks after the event, on November 16, 2022, it would be an excellent time for AMD to reveal its competitor.

How much will the AMD Radeon RX 7000 series cost?

When it comes to potential pricing for the upcoming range, things get a bit more complicated, with signs pointing to a potential cost increase across the entire RX 7000 series.

In previous years, AMD has tried to price its range of GPUs competitively in a bid to entice consumers away from Nvidia, arguably the dominant force in the GPU market in recent years.

But factors including component shortages, rising demand, and the fact that some die-hard enthusiasts are paying double or even triple the MSRP of graphics cards just to get their hands on them means AMD could raise prices the next day. Next time.

That’s backed up by Twitter leaker @Kepler_L2, who suggest in a tweet that the next-gen, high-end Radeon RX 7900 XT could cost up to $2,000, which is a whopping 100% increase over the $999 Radeon RX 6900 XT available right now. It’s probably not that dramatic, at least across the range, as that would bring the entry-level GPU to around $960, but it does suggest that next-gen graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia could cost more than consumers. . I used to do it.

Other reports suggest a not-so-dramatic increase, with Digi times suggesting a 20% increase due to higher prices for components required for the GPU.

What to expect from the AMD Radeon RX 7000 series

While rumors have been circulating for some time, AMD has started teasing specs and highlights of its RDNA 3 architecture and the graphics cards that use it. It all started with a blog post from AMD in mid-September, which shed light on how it plans to achieve even higher levels of gaming performance.

RDNA3 Architecture

A big part of the Radeon RX 6000 series was the RDNA 2 architecture it was built on; in fact, it was so popular that it’s also used on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. It was affectionately called Big Navi by fans and Navi 2x by execs, and it looks like the Navi name lives on with the next-gen kit.

twitter leaker @KittyYYuko suggests that the next generation RDNA 3 architecture to be used in the RX 7000 series is known internally as Navi 33.

The leaker suggests that the RDNA 3 architecture will offer the same raw performance of RDNA 2 with an added boost from the company’s “next-generation IP core.” It aligns with early comments from AMD executives suggesting big performance gains from the RDNA 3 architecture, though no exact numbers were provided.

The RDNA 3 architecture was officially confirmed by AMD in September 2022, with more details expected at an event scheduled for early November 2022. Also as rumored, the company confirmed that the next generation GPUs will have a chiplet design, something that is not common. found in GPUs, but it’s technology that AMD uses in its Ryzen processors.

It’s essentially the secret formula behind AMD’s significant CPU gains in recent years, so there’s hope you can have an equally transformative experience on the graphics card front.

Increase performance

AMD has confirmed that its RDNA 3 enabled graphics cards will transition from a 7nm process to a 5nm process in the next generation graphics card lineup, which has led some to speculate that could translate to a 2.5x jump in overall performance, and could also allow for better ray tracing performance.

AMD has also confirmed that improving performance per watt is a “big focus” for next-gen Radeon cards. In a blog post published in mid-September, AMD revealed that the new graphics cards are much more efficient than their predecessors, with up to 123% more FPS per watt than “competitive cards”, although it is not clear if compares to Nvidia’s RTX 30. Series or the rumored Series 40.

Regardless, AMD claims that the combination of its chiplet design, 5nm process, and next-generation AMD Infinity Cache technology should lead to an estimated 50% performance-per-watt improvement over current graphics cards. RDNA 2-enabled RX 6000 series available now.
