In the fall, we can expect to see new graphics architectures from both Nvidia and AMD, with the green team loading up with the “Ada Lovelace” architecture and the Geforce RTX 4000 series while the red team going against RDNA 3 and the upcoming Radeon RX 7000 family. In addition to leaks and rumors, a lot is known about the new architectures, but during the AMD Financial Analyst Day event, which took place yesterday, the picture about RDNA 3 will be at least somewhat clearer.
While the company didn’t mention any actual performance numbers in its offering, it does reveal that the new RDNA 3 graphics architecture is taking a real step in energy efficiency. According to AMD, RDNA 3 should provide about 50 percent better power efficiency than its predecessor RDNA 2. The recipe for achieving this can largely be attributed to the move to manufacturing using the 5 nm TSMC process, but also the redesign of computing modules and the next generation Infinity Cash. -The solution.
Another part that contributes to improving power efficiency is that AMD intends to use the chiplet design for RDNA 3. This is something that has been rumored since then but has now been officially confirmed by the company. It’s still unclear exactly how much chips will be used in the Radeon RX 7000 series, but it probably doesn’t matter that these are the best models where instead of using a giant monolithic circuit, the goal is to connect several smaller circuits.
In addition to RDNA 3, AMD also talked about the future of its graphics architectures. Next in line is RDNA 4, which will be produced on a manufacturing node not yet exposed. RDNA 4 will be introduced before the end of 2024, which aligns well with the way the company has worked previously to launch a new architecture every two years. First, though, is RDNA 3, which will launch with the Radeon RX 7000 series before the end of the year.
