AMD will be announcing/launching its next-gen Radeon RX 7000 GPUs featuring the RDNA 3 graphics architecture on the 3rd of November. Senior Vice President (SVP) and General Manager (GM) of the Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) Scott Herkelman shared this info via a tweet a couple of hours back:
AMD has reiterated multiple times in the past that it’s prepping its upcoming RDNA 3 offerings for a late 2022 launch, and this definitely looks like the day. We can expect the Radeon RX 7900 XT, the RX 7800 XT, and/or the RX 7700 XT to land in late November/December to battle the GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang just announced the Ada Lovelace architecture earlier today with a launch planned for the 10th of October. This will give the RTX 4090 ($1,499) an entire month to rule the desktop gaming market unopposed.

AMD’s Radeon RX 7000 GPUs are going to be some of the most energy-efficient parts we’ve ever since in the industry. Featuring a chiplet design with up to seven dies, including a 5nm GCD (Graphics Compute Die) and six 6nm MCDs (Memory Complex Dies), the RDNA 3 graphics architecture promises a 50% performance/watt uplift over RDNA 2.
In addition to new process nodes, the next-gen Radeon GPUs will also feature 3D packaging (MCDs and Infinity Cache), wider Compute Unit (128 ALUs), and WGPs (256 ALUs), and a fine-grained graphics pipeline.
