AMD Radeon RX 7000the generation of graphs built with the architecture RDNA3, will be officially presented on November 3, 2022, while it is rumored that its market launch date would be set for mid-December of the same year. Added to this is the possibility that the red giant will do the same as NVIDIA and start marketing the highest models to launch the mid-range and low-end ones during the course of 2023.
The highest known RX 7000 models, which for now are referenced through their dice (ten), Navi 31 and Navi 32 will employ an MCM design and TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing process. The RDNA 3 architecture aims to offer over 50% improvement in performance per watt compared to RDNA 2, but unfortunately for Radeon, the latest rumors don’t rank it very well compared to RTX 40.
AMD seems to have decided to introduce more infinite cache memory in its future Radeon RX 7000, which could leave it with little room for improvement in aspects such as ray tracing performance. Here we find ourselves with the same situation seen in recent years, and that is that NVIDIA is apparently two generations ahead of Radeon in technologies. In addition, the improvement experienced by RTX 40 would place the latter clearly above RX 7000 in rasterization performance.
Go ahead that the forecasts around the performance of the RX 7000 are just rumors for now, but the blow to the table that NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 has meant aims to have made it difficult for AMD, more seeing that even Intel is, at least in these moments, above in terms of technologies. In other words and In the absence of being able to cover all the ranges correctly, Intel is currently a rival with more potential than AMD to face the strong dominance exerted by NVIDIA.
In short, it looks like the RX 7000 will be a significant improvement compared to the previous generation of Radeon graphics, but its evolution could be insufficient to compete with guarantees with RTX 40. This would force AMD to have to play with the resource easy, the price, because otherwise its future dedicated graphics will have a hard time being attractive to consumers.
