AMD has revealed some details about its next Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards based on RDNA 3, although no release date has been announced. According to a reliable leaker, they’ll come between late October and mid-November, immediately after the company ships its Zen 4-powered Ryzen 7000 CPUs.
In a tweet, Greymon55 (via VideoCardz) cites a “reliable” source for those dates. The cards are expected to arrive soon after the Ryzen 7000 processors, which are expected to arrive in late September or early October, leaving little time between the two releases.
AMD will be releasing the Navi 31 GPU first
The Navi 31 GPU is scheduled to be released first, followed by Navi 33 and Navi 32-based cards for the top Radeon RX 7900 series. This corresponds to Nvidia’s rumored plans to deliver the RTX 4090 initially, followed by the 4080, 4070, and 4060.
AMD’s and Nvidia’s projected card release dates will almost probably clash. The RTX 4090 is expected to be released in September or October, with a four-week break between each release, according to the latest reports.
While all of these dates are just that: rumors, it looks safe to assume that Intel will beat both companies to market with its Arc desktop GPUs, which are still expected in late summer despite the recent delay.
AMD has revealed its CPU and GPU roadmaps. They affirm that the 5nm RDNA 3 cards will feature a chiplet design and that DisplayPort 2.0 will enable uncompressed 4K gaming at 240Hz thanks to the 80Gbps speed.
