AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT are the Last RDNA 3 GPUs Planned for 2023

AMD released its fourth and fifth RDNA 3 graphics cards at Gamescom at this year. Positioned to compete against the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti and 4070, these sub-$500 GPUs are going to form the backbone of the Radeon lineup. AMD’s first-party benchmarks paint a rosy picture of its upcoming Radeon offerings, claiming a 20-30% advantage over their RTX rivals at lower price while also boasting a larger VRAM buffer.

Like the Radeon RX 7900 series GPUs, the RX 7800 XT and 7700 XT are chiplet designs with over four disaggregated dies, including four Memory Complex (MCD) and one Graphics Compute Die (GCD). Unfortunately, both Navi 31 and Navi 32 suffer from the infamous clock speed bug, limiting the core boost clock well under 2.5GHz.

Mace (host): You have launched 7700 XT and 7800 XT. Is that going to complete the RDNA3 portfolio or is there maybe more on the horizon?

Scott: Well, the RDNA3 portfolio is now complete. Of all products that we have planned to launch, that is, this is the last few products that we will launch. We may have some different versions, but they are not a new ASIC/SKU. […] It’s been a journey, it’s been about a year since we launched the very first RDNA3 and now we are a year later finishing up the series. We should be done, we are done and we are excited. And now I think we have a broad spectrum covered for people who want RDNA3 up and down the price tag.

During a Gamescom interview, Scott Herkelman, Senior Vice President (SVP) and General Manager (GM) of AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) revealed that the RX 7700 XT and 7800 XT are the last members of the RDNA 3 family. Although we may see variants of existing models, such as an RX 7600 XT 16GB, or the RX 7800/7700 with fewer cores or lesser VRAM, we won’t be seeing a new GPU die.
