AMD RDNA 3 release date price and specifications 1

PC components have relatively short life cycles and we’re nearly two years since the current graphics cards were released. So we do expect the next-gen to release sometime soon, in particular, we look at AMD RDNA 3 release date, price, and specifications.

Since there is no official news we have corroborated the leaks and rumors surrounding the products. As well as combining what we know from previous releases and applying it to the next.

So for RDNA 3, we expect the next range of RX 7000 series GPUs. Improving upon the RX 6000 series that finally brought Radeon up against Nvidia. We do expect even more improvements and close calls between the two. But with the RTX 4000 series, there is a lot of excitement to expect to see which graphics cards will come out on top.

Latest news on RDNA 3

AMD RDNA 3 release date

Update: It has now been confirmed that AMD RDNA 3 will launch on the 3rd of November 2022. Coming in between the launch of the 4090 and 4080, the generation will pose a great competitor if the pricing follows.

AMD Radeon RDNA 3 release date

The current speculation towards the AMD RDNA 3 release date is September 2022. Or at least during the second half of the year. From previous releases, we can see any patterns in its releases. RDNA 2 was released sooner than expected but brought better performance increases. But two years on we expect RDNA 3 to come out in September/October time.

  • RDNA 1 – July 2019
  • RDNA 2 – October 2020

AMD RDNA 3 architecture

Further improving upon the RDNA 2 architecture the RDNA 3 architecture has a couple of differences. One adjustment is the manufacturing process it will be utilizing. From an employee’s LinkedIn update. It shows them working on Navi31, 32, and 33 projects. These are made with 5&6nm, 5&6nm, and 6nm respectively., most likely from TSMC again.

It does suggest that the higher-end choices are on a smaller node. While also listing two processes it could suggest they are using an MCM design. Similar to what it offers in its Aldebaran data center accelerators.

Combining multiple sources of information from reliable leakers. However, without confirmation, it is still down to change. AMD also seems to have more information locked down with less coming out. Although that may be the potential date differences between the releases.

Update: Closer to the release time we get more news on what to expect. With the next spec of VRAM speeds specification suggested by Greymon55 leaker.

Now we have the latest RX 7000 final spec rumor from Angstromics gives us a good look at what to expect from the coming cards.

AMD RDNA 3 price prediction

With the recent silicon shortage and news that TSMC may be increasing pricing, we wouldn’t be surprised that the MSRP increases across generations. Especially with the addition of MCM design effectively doubling the amount of GPU you get although maybe combined they are close to one full old chip.

If the new generation follows suit of the old we can follow on from it. As it tends to be the case that prices stayed the same but more recently they have been rising. And so we may expect some increase as well.

RX 6900 XT – $999RX 7900 XT ~ $1000-$1500

RX 6700 XT – $479RX 7700 XT ~ $500-$700

AMD RDNA 3 overview

There is no official set date but we do know AMD expects the Radeon RDNA 3 GPUs sometime in 2022. We expect to see a good increase in performance, especially ray tracing to bring the fight closer to Nvidia. Where it might win is with ingenuity with 3d chips and MCM design.

We can’t wait to see what’s in stock for the next generation. Which will fit perfectly with the new AM5 platform. We’ll be sure to keep this page updated with the latest.

AMD RDNA 3 lineup

If you’re looking for a more specific page for each of the cards we believe will be in the initial lineup on launch. As if it follows previous launches it will likely have three from its top range of cards.

Recently AFOX has registered documentation with the EEC to sell RX 7000 series cards in the Eurasian Union. This outlines the range of graphics cards the company plans on selling including the whole range of RX 7000 series cards.

It ranges from the Radeon RX 7500 up to the RX 7900 XT. Although this may be just it covering its bases it might show an insight into what to expect. It is quite early for any production and sales but that might come soon enough.

Where to buy AMD RDNA 3

If you’re on the lookout for actually buying an RX 7000 series GPU we have a selection of pages to direct you to the right place. Although the cards are not yet out we will be keeping an eye out on retailers to find the stock.

AMD RDNA 3 FAQs

What is AMD RDNA 3?

AMD RDNA 3 is the manufacturer’s next architecture of graphics cards. The lineup is to follow the increasing success of RDNA 2 and will feature the Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards.

When RDNA 3?

It has now been confirmed that AMD RDNA 3 is set to launch on the 3rd of November 2022.

Will RDNA 3 be MCM?

Yes, RDNA 3 will contain some MCM (multi-chip-module) GPUs. It is expected that Navi 31 and 32 will be of MCM design. They are rumored to feature 1 GCD each, with 6 and 4 MCDs respectively.

How much will RDNA 3 cost?

There is no certain price as of yet, so we look back at the previous generation for some speculation. We expect the minimum price to be what the last set launched at while including the possibility of some price increases. With that we expect the RX 7900 XT to be in the range of $1000-$1500. While the RX 7800 XT is in the range of $700-900, and the RX 7700 XT is in the range of $500-700.

Will RX 7000 have ray tracing?

It is very likely that the RX 7000 series will in fact have ray tracing. Since RDNA 2 introduced ray tracing to AMD’s lineup, RDNA 3 will likely continue to support it and likely improve upon it. With implementation and support in applications growing it is a staple in graphics. Therefore it would be terrible to take it out. However, the current AMD solution is less than ideal. And Nvidia easily steamrolls performance in ray tracing. So it’s more than likely the next update will further improve on the tech.

Is AMD releasing new GPU 2022?

Yes, it is very likely AMD will release new Radeon GPUs in 2022. Apart from the 6X50 XT cards launched earlier in the year, the RX 7000 series cards are expected to launch as well. More likely towards the end of the year RDNA 3 is expected in Q4 2022.

Does Rdna 3 exist?

Yes, RDNA 3 does in fact exist. It was teased by AMD during its AM5 announcement. And we expect it to follow not long after the CPUs.
