AMD is hard at work on the RDNA 3-enabled Radeon RX 7000 Series, which is being developed behind closed doors. Here’s everything you need to know about the next-generation graphics card lineup as of right now.

AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards are extremely popular because they provide significant performance improvements over previous generations of graphics cards, allowing them to compete more directly with Nvidia’s RTX 30 Series. In spite of the fact that it’s still difficult to find a Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics card, AMD is hard at work on the next-generation Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards behind closed doors.

The AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series is covered in detail in this article, including release date and pricing speculation, as well as RDNA 3-themed leaked information.

Amd 7000 Series Gpu Release Date

Before you get too enthusiastic over graymon55’s tweet, which suggested that we should anticipate the likes of RDNA 3 and RTX 4000 cards in September, keep in mind that the Radeon RX 7000 series has been delayed, according to the common consensus.

According to the people at Tech Advisor, one leaker, @broly X1, indicated in a (now deleted) tweet that AMD was aiming for a Q4 2022 launch, and went on to imply that AMD’s Ryzen 7000 chipset would release around the same time as the AMD processor.

What is the source of the apparent delay? Despite the fact that you are probably sick of hearing it, we’ll say it again… Chip shortages are a problem.

Yep, it was the same shortages that affected everything from phones to PlayStation 5s, as well as graphics cards, of course.

Will they, however, be on target for the upcoming year? The majority of people appear to be confident, including AMD, who stated as much at their January 2022 earnings conference call, as reported by

The call delves into the results of the fourth quarter of 2021 and makes mention of the impending RDNA 3 GPUs, as well as the ZEN 4 CPUs.

‘We are now in the year 2022. Intense demand for our products continues to exist, and we anticipate another year of significant growth and share gains as we scale up production of current products and prepare to launch our next generation of Zen 4 CPUs and RDNA 3 GPUs. As part of this effort, we have made major investments to ensure that we have the capacity to sustain our growth in 2022 and beyond.’

This is encouraging to hear, although it does not provide a specific release date at this time. That AMD is well-positioned to deliver this time around is something that we will have to wait and see how it all pans out.

Amd 7000 Series Gpu Latest Leaks

As is common with products that are in the development stage and so must remain hidden from prying eyes, the Radeon RX 7000 series appears to have experienced more than a few ‘leaks’ to date.

That’s both good and terrible news, as it turns out. Although it is advantageous in that it provides us with something to sink our teeth into, it is disadvantageous in that it may taste a little…off.

Before getting too excited about these, we’d usually recommend taking them with a grain of salt. However, there may be some truth to them that can help us focus our expectations in the proper direction.

Amd 7000 Series Gpu Price And Specs 


In comparison to its predecessors, it is believed that the next generation of AMD RDNA 3 graphics cards would have a comparable pricing point. The Radeon RX 6900 XT was launched at a price of $999, the Radeon RX 6800 XT at a price of $649, and the Radeon RX 6700 XT at a price of $479.

Having said that, considering the recent GPU silicon shortage, it’s completely possible that AMD will raise the prices of graphics cards in the future.

Here is a table that will assist you in understanding the new GPU portfolio.

Radeon RX 6000 series Radeon RX 7000 series
Navi 31 (5nm + 6nm?)
RX 7900 – between $1000 and $1500
Navi 32 (5nm + 6nm)
RX 7800 – between $600 and $1000
Navi 21 – RX 6800/RX 6900
Navi 33 (6nm)
RX 7700 – estimated at $450
Navi 22 – RX 6700
Navi 22 refresh or a 6nm refresh
RX 7600 – estimated at $350
Navi 23 – RX 6600
Navi 23 refresh or a 6nm refresh
RX 7500 – estimated at $250
Navi 24 – RX 6500
$200 (alleged)
Navi 24 refresh or a 6nm refresh
RX 7400 – estimated at $150

It is expected that the AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards will be built on the AMD RDNA 3 architecture, which will reportedly be built on TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing node (according to Overclock3D). This is a significant improvement over the previous generation, which used a 7nm manufacturing process. By shrinking the node, AMD is able to increase the number of transistors on the chip, resulting in faster performance.

It’s unclear what kind of performance boost such an upgrade could provide, but hardware leaker _rogame claims that a 2.5x performance boost is possible with this configuration. It’s also likely that AMD will improve the ray tracing performance of its next-generation graphics cards, as this is an area where it’s arguably lagging behind Nvidia.

Power consumption is one area where AMD may have an advantage over Nvidia. While early reports (via Igor’s Lab) suggest that the Nvidia RTX 4090 can have a power consumption of up to 600W, AMD may be taking a different approach with its new GPUs.

Moore’s Law is Dead suggests that the AMD RDNA 3 graphics cards may have significantly higher power efficiency than their Nvidia counterparts, though exact figures have yet to be revealed. So, if you’re concerned about your electricity bill spiraling out of control, it might be worth considering the RDNA 3 GPUs rather than Nvidia’s offering.

We’ll be updating this article throughout the year, so bookmark it if you want the most up-to-date information on the upcoming RDNA 3 graphics cards.
