AMD’s RDNA3 GPU architecture has clearly been the subject of much speculation, especially among GPU enthusiasts who are longtime fans of the alternative to NVIDIA’s GeForce GPUs. Well, at the end of their Ryzen 7000 series launch, AMD gave the press a very, very small sneak peek at the architecture and their efforts within the Radeon division.
The little nugget of information about RDNA3, again we can’t stress how small the details were: the architecture of the GPU was basically Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, giving a little update on the progress the Radeon division has made. One breakthrough that Dr. Su was pleased to share with us was his design and performance threshold.
Design-wise, the RDA3 GPU will use AMD’s new chiplet design. Dr. Su also said that compared to the current RDNA2 architecture, fans and consumers could expect up to a 50% increase in graphics performance over the last generation. However, it is not clear if this performance improvement is simply referring to its bare performance or if it actually takes into account the inclusion of other features such as real-time ray tracing, subsurface scattering, or even AI improvement. .
There was also no hardware display, except for the stylized image of what was clearly a reference cooler, complete with heatsink fins that were accented in red: a very clear reference to the RDNA3 architecture. In fact, the only showcase AMD was willing to use to show off its prowess was a very short tech demo of the card, using the recently announced Dark Souls-inspired title Lies of P.
AMD officially confirmed during its Financial Analyst Day 2022 in June that its RDNA3 technology was on track for release this year. Like the Ryzen 7000 series, the new GPU and its “advanced chiplet packaging” will be based on 5nm die lithography, no doubt provided by TSMC. In addition, the GPU will also feature a “next generation” Infinity Cache.
