On Thursday, November 3, 2022, AMD is letting the cat out of the bag and showing the first graphics cards from the Radeon RX 7000 series. The company is organizing a live stream for this, which will be broadcast on YouTube from 9:00 p.m. German time. It is usually a pre-recorded premiere.

In the announcement, AMD writes: “AMD executives will share details about the new high-performance, energy-efficient AMD RDNA3 architecture, which offers gamers and content creators new levels of performance, efficiency, and functionality.”

AMD usually uses such streams to reveal the specifications and to give an outlook on the performance. Sales then usually start a few weeks later – in the case of the RX-7000 graphics cards, a market launch is rumored at the end of November.

Just like with Nvidia with the GeForce RTX 4090, the top models should start, while the RX 6000 upper class is on sale. Manufacturer cards for the Radeon RX 6900 XT, for example, are currently available for 780 euros, and Radeon RX 6800 XT models for 650 euros. The prices are well below AMD’s recommended price, despite the bad euro exchange rate.

Unlike before, AMD no longer monolithically builds the GPUs for the RX 7000 top models. Instead, the company has the main chip with the shader cores manufactured by TSMC with 5-nanometer technology and the memory chipset dies (MCDs) with 6-nm structures. The latter is said to contain the GDDR6 memory controller and the Infinity Cache in the form of SRAM. AMD promises at least 50 percent higher efficiency compared to the current RDNA2 generation.
