The release date for the Radeon RX 7000 series was announced today by Scott Herkelman, who serves as Senior Vice President and General Manager for AMD Radeon. The launch date for the new GPU series based on the RDNA3 architecture is set for November 3rd, which is precisely six weeks from today.
Launching the RX 7000 only two hours before NVIDIA unveils the GeForce RTX 40 series is an intriguing marketing ploy and a clear hint that the opponent is ready.
AMD has previously verified that RDNA3 would provide at least 50% higher performance per watt efficiency. The new series of GPUs will also be the first to use cutting-edge packaging methods and a multi-chip-modular design, including separate graphics and memory chiplets.
AMD has announced that the Radeon RX 7000 GPUs, also known as Navi 3X, are built using 5nm manufacturing technology and will have next-generation Infinity Cache. It is believed that there will be a minimum of three RDNA3, one of which will be the Navi 31. This GPU will have 12288 stream processors, which is more than twice as many as the present RDNA2 flagship GPU, which is known as the Navi 21.
