The AMD RX 7950XT will be three times more powerful than the RX 6900 XT

We are on April 1, the day of the holy innocents for the Anglo-Saxon world or also known as April’s Fool Day. However, we could not pass up the information about the specifications of the AMD RX 7950XT, one of the top-of-the-range graphics cards under RDNA 3 architecture that we will see in a few months. And before you continue reading, we can already tell you that it is a beast.

The next battle in the world of gaming graphics cards will be between the NVIDIA RTX 40 based on the Ada Lovelace architecture and the AMD RX 7000 based on the RDNA 3 architecture. In the case of the next generation of Radeon, these They will be the first to be based on dividing the graphics chip into several in the same way that they did with their desktop Ryzen processors.

The division, however, and for the first generation of AMD chiplet graphics cards, we will not see it in the form of two identical chips. On the one hand, we will have the GCD that will be in charge of rendering the scene and on the other hand the MCD that will have the memory controller, the accelerators and the Infinity Cache. So it’s a very similar split to your desktop CPUs.

AMD RX 7950 XT Specifications Leaked

At the moment we are crossing our fingers to know if they are real, but we see them as possible and all the sources that talk about them tell us that it is not an April’s Fool Day joke. The information has been leaked by Greymon55 and refers to the AMD RX 7950 XT, which would be one of the most powerful graphics cards that AMD will launch for its next generation. In any case, we recommend that you take this information as a rumour, since there are details that could change in the final model that will reach us.

The AMD Radeon RX 7950 XT will have 15,360 Stream Processors, which is what many mistakenly call 32-bit floating point units. Well, one of the things that we will see in RDNA 3 will be the ratio of 128 ALUs in FP32 per shader unit. This is something that both Intel and NVIDIA have already adopted in their ARC Alchemist and RTX 30 respectively. Put on paper, we are talking about a jump from 3 times more units than the current RX 6900 XT and all this at one speed in Boost or in Game of 2.5 GHz. The TDP is apparently not yet final, but it seems that it will be around 500Wso you’re going to need the new PCIe Gen 5 power connector.

As for the interface with memory, this would continue to be 256-bit GDDR6but apparently they have managed to reach the 21Gbps, at the moment we do not know if that figure is an exaggeration or if these modules are really already in production. Do not forget that Samsung said that it had reached 24 Gbps. In any case, if this figure were confirmed as true, this would mean that GDDR6X no longer has a reason to exist. Of course, it may be one of the reasons for the increase in consumption of the graphics card.

Finally, we talk about 512 MB Infinity Cache 3D, the current one does not have the three-dimensional tagline. Which makes us think that it is an implementation of the V-Cache in a graphics card. In this case it would be mounted on top of the so-called MCD chiplet. At the moment we will wait to have more details of the AMD RX 7950XT and the rest of the graphics cards with RDNA 3 architecture.
