At the beginning of this month, we discovered AMD patents for using chips for GPUs, without causing too many latency and load balancing issues. A Twitterer now says he has more information about Navi 31, the next high-end video chip from the red camp. Chiplets would be used.
The Twitterer in question calls himself Kepler. He hasn’t surfaced that often with unknown information, but when we look at his account, he appears to have correctly revealed more details. Navi 31 itself is said to have 80 compute units, he now writes on Twitter. That is the same number as that of Big Navi (Navi 21), and in addition, the information about Navi 31 corresponds to previous data from MacOS.
This time Navi 31 would also use chiplets. Until now, this technology has remained related to latency and mutual communication between GPU components in CPUs, but AMD’s patent must provide a solution for this. According to Kepler, the fastest version of the next generation should include two of these chips and therefore have 160 cu’s. In addition to double the number of CPUs, the fastest video card of that generation (presumably in the RX 7000 series) should use the RDNA 3 architecture and thus offer even more improvements.
Of course, this information may be taken with a good grain of salt. We have very little information about Navi 31. The chiplet patent also mentioned that there is a ‘main chiplet’ that connects to the CPU, and we are not sure yet if one chiplet is exactly the same as the other chiplet.
In any case, there are also rumors that Nvidia’s Hopper generation will see products with chiplets, but at the end of last year it was rumored that another architecture must come between Ampere and Hopper.
