AMD gives taste of RDNA 3

AMD is kicking off the technology fall by unveiling the Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” and the AM5 platform, a launch called duga. In addition to the introduction of Zen 4 and manufacturing on TSMC’s 5-nanometer technology, upgrades follow such as support for DDR5 memory, PCI Express 5.0 and greatly improved performance and energy efficiency. Towards the end of September, the four presented processors appear in stores, together with independent tests.

Sometime before the end of the year, the company will unveil the next generation of graphics cards, and as a Ryzen dessert, a small taste of what is to come will be served. On the screen behind AMD’s CEO Lisa Su, an unspecified reference graphics card based on the RDNA 3 architecture can be seen. Judging from the image, AMD continues with the same aesthetics and cooler type as for the current generation, with three axial fans, an aluminum heatsink and toned-down colors.

This is our next generation Radeon graphics card, powered by our all-new RDNA 3 architecture. […] By combining our most advanced gaming architecture with 5 nanometer chiplets, RDNA 3 GPUs will deliver more than 50 percent more performance per watt, than our current generation Radeon GPUs. And it’s currently running in our labs. The performance looks absolutely wonderful, and so, for the first time ever; let’s take a look at RDNA 3 in action, with the Ryzen 9 7950X. – Lisa Su

As Lisa Su talks more about the upcoming RDNA 3 architecture, it is reiterated that chiplet-the layout from the Ryzen world is also adopted for the graphics cards. This means that the graphics circuit is divided into several parts, which has advantages such as better scalability and more easily produced circuits, while the communication between them is the problematic flip side of the coin. Manufacturing on TSMC’s 5 nanometers and 50 percent better performance at a given power, are details that Su also confirms.


Finally, an RDNA 3 graphics card and the Ryzen 9 7950X turn the game around Lies of Pwhich runs in 4K UHD resolution with the detail levels cranked up Ultra. However, it is difficult to draw any conclusions from this, partly because the frame rate is not mentioned, partly because the specific graphics card model is also kept secret. However, Su notes that “performance is fantastic” on the cards tested in the company’s labs. More information and concrete details will appear sometime before Christmas shopping.
