AMD has recently announced its participation in Gamescom 2023, starting next week, where it will reveal its upcoming flagship products within the Radeon RX 7000 GPU series.
The announcement comes directly from Scott Herkelman, AMD’s Senior Vice President & General Manager of the Graphics Business Unit. In his statement, Scott indicates that AMD will be holding a significant event during Gamescom 2023, where they will unveil their next major product releases. These are likely to include the highly anticipated Radeon RX 7800 XT & RX 7700 XT graphics cards. Dr. Lisa Su, AMD’s CEO, had previously affirmed the introduction of new high-performance products in the upcoming quarter. Gamescom 2023 appears to be the platform for their official debut.
Regarding the specifications, the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT GPU utilizes the Navi 32 SKU architecture featuring four MCDs. The core of the GPU houses 3840 cores distributed across 60 Compute Units. It is equipped with 16 GB of GDDR6 VRAM that functions over a 256-bit wide bus interface. Additionally, it incorporates 64 MB of Infinity Cache and operates at an 18 Gbps pin speed, resulting in a total bandwidth of 576 GB/s. As for the RX 7700 XT GPU, its precise configuration remains unknown at this point.
Judging from the memory setup, it’s evident that the graphics card will employ a 192-bit bus interface. This implies the use of a slightly reduced Navi 32 version, featuring three out of the four MCDs, which suggests the inclusion of 48 MB of Infinity Cache. When considering the core composition, it’s likely to consist of approximately 24 Compute Units, totaling to 3072 stream processors.
When it comes to pricing, the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT GPU could be priced in the range of $550 to $600 US, whereas the Radeon RX 7700 XT might fall within the $350 to $450 US range. These two cards will be positioned to compete against the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 series, correspondingly.
