AMD RDNA 3 Live Blog: Get Ready to Meet Radeon 7000


For everyone who hasn’t used the RTX 4090 yet, these cards will at least give gamers something to think about. These cards seem to fit more cases. If the 7900 cards are competitive and, at least as importantly, their prices are maintained and there is sufficient inventory, we believe these cards will sell well.

But as much as I love sub-$1,000 prices, both AMD and Nvidia (at least for now) only cater to the extreme high end of the market. By the time CES returns early next year, we hope to see a new, affordable card.

Hey I can dream

Scott is back. It looks like he’s trying to find out prices and availability.

Both cards are December 13, 2022.
XT $899, XTX $999. Depending on how the card compares to the 4080 and 4090, Nvidia may need to rethink its pricing.

The RDNA 3 media engine promises speed improvements of up to 7x. Another interesting thing to test.

Frank Azor covers the states and details the software and the overall experience. AMD Adrenalin is “the hub of almost everything”.

AMD HYPR-RX mode combines AMD’s software features to deliver a simple one-click experience, so you can sit back and be in the game. Coming early next year.

FSR3, of course, conflicts with DLSS3. Jarred will soon be busy testing and comparing. As always, a lot depends on how prevalent these features are and, ostensibly, whether they’re offered in the games you want to play.

Of course, everything looks great here. But time and testing will tell us how things look and perform compared to the competition.

7900XT, 84 CUs, 2 GHz clock, 20 GB of DDR6. “You don’t need a new power adapter. It’s as easy as unplugging the old card and plugging in the new one.”

Scott, of course, denounces DisplayPort 2.1 and other things that are meant to make Nvdia look bad. We’ve shown you the Samsung 8K monitors we should be seeing at CES early next year.

Scott Herkelman talks performance. The RTX 7900 XTX is up to 1.7x faster than the previous flagship. 355W, clocked at 2.3GHz, and doesn’t look too big.

Let’s talk a little bit more about the RDNA 3 computing die. New display engine and dual media engine. 165% more transistors per square mm.

“We made the most of 5nm.”

Dual issue SIMD unit and 2.7x improvement in AI performance.

50% more performance per compute unit.

Displayport 2.1! They want it to stick with Nvidia. Up to 165Hz at 8K. Jarred needs a new monitor.

54% better performance per watt than generation.

24GB Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 20GB 7900 officially announced. Hopefully they don’t have to unlaunch any of them.

Speaking of chiplets, this is the first chiplet-based gaming GPU. Similar to Ryzen 7000, this offers a modular approach. The graphics compute die will be at 5nm and will contain “all the high performance computing inside the GPU”. Sharders, display engine, new media engine. The other die is a memory cache built on a 6nm process. This includes his GDDR6 controller in the memory subsystem and infinite cache up to 96 megabytes.

“As a result, we have incredible power with over 61 teraflops of computing power … we also have the world’s best chiplet interconnect, enabling peak bandwidth of 5.3 terabytes per second. increase.”

24GB of GDDR6. “Together, this design has his 58 billion transistors, giving him unbelievable gaming performance.”

“Looking ahead to 2025, there will be 3.5 billion gamers in the world.”

When your customer base is half the planet, you have a lot to aim for.

Lisa Su came on stage, welcomed everyone, and we started running. AMD, as usual, seems very busy.

“We are in the midst of actually bringing 4 new architectures to market across 12+ products…starting with the launch of Ryzen 7000 in September…next week we plan to bring Zen to high-end server processors. It soon moved to laptops, with Zen 4 cores optimized for cloud-native computing and next-generation DNA architecture due in 2023.”
