In the Q3 quarterly earnings report released by AMD a few days ago, the sales of Radeon graphics cards exceeded expectations. RX
The 6000 series is very popular. This series of graphics cards will last for almost a year. There will be RX 7000 series graphics cards in October next year, but this time the first release may be 6nm.
Navi33 core, mid-range rather than flagship card. AMD’s Navi3X series will be the next-generation RDNA3 architecture, with at least Navi 31, Navi 32 and Navi
33 Three cores. There are many rumors, but they are also quite messy. Here we will reorganize them.
Navi 31 is the core of the flagship graphics card.It is divided into two 5nm GCD modules and one 6nm MCD module, which are computing nodes and input and output nodes. It integrates up to 15,360 stream processors, 512MB infinite cache, and 256-bit GDDR6.
The performance of the Navi 31 core is expected to be 2.5-2.7 times that of the Navi 21, which is an increase of more than 150%. It has been taped out in October.However, it is expected to be listed in January 2023.It is said that 5nm production capacity should be given priority to the Zen4 processor in the same period.
Navi 32 core is also 2 GCN modules + 1 GCD module, but the stream processor unit is reduced to 10240, 192bit width, 384MB unlimited cache, Q1 quarter next year, and release in spring 2023.
These two high-end core graphics cards, almost RX 7900/7800/7700 series graphics cards, will not come out until the beginning of the year.
The fastest Navi3 series graphics card is the Navi 33 core, but its architecture is completely different from the two big brothers.The multi-chip package is not used, and the 6nm process is still used. The core area is about 440mm2. The stream processor unit is not the rumored 5120, but 4096.With 128bit GDDR6 graphics card, 128MB or 256MB unlimited cache, it is expected to be available in October next year.
To put it simply, next year’s RX 7000 series graphics cards, the first to come out may be the Navi33 core of the RX 7600 series, not the expected small chip multi-module package, or the traditional 6nm single core.
The most anticipated high-end RX 7000 series graphics cards will be in early 2023 at the earliest. They will use a 5nm+6nm hybrid package. The performance improvement is also very terrifying, with an increase of more than 1.5 times and 15,000 stream processor units.
