AMD RDNA 3 promises double the performance of the current range

In addition to Nvidia's RTX 40 series, AMD's new RDNA 3 GPUs are among the expected releases this year. The new range should offer a significant leap in performance over current models. The most recent rumors speak of performing mid-range models such as an RX 6900 XT, together with a price that should reach a maximum of $ 500 for the medium-high range.

The new AMD RDNA 3 GPUs will be moreover, the first to be built with more than one chiplet and it is on this approach that the new architecture of the company turns, which should make use of TSMC's 5 and 6nm production nodes. As revealed by insider @ Greymon55, AMD's Navi 31 GPU will consist of two 5nm Graphics Complex Dies (GCD), four Memory Complex Dies (MCD) and a controller for interconnection.

In this way the company aims to further increase the scalability, all to the benefit of performance and above all the price. With a total of 7 chiplets, Navi 31 will offer a greater amount of stream processors, with which it will be possible to expect at least double the performance compared to the Navi 21 range. According to the info of the youtuber Moore's Law is Dead, the mid-range models should be equipped with 8GB of GDDR6 RAM and a bandwidth of 18 Gbps.| ); }
AMD RDNA 3 AMD would also have made significant progress also with regard to ray tracing. By following the chiplet approach, the company has the ability to outperform the competition in both performance and efficiency, where Nvidia appears to have taken the opposite path. If the increasingly insistent rumors about the increased consumption of the RTX 4000 were to be confirmed (which now seems to have been proven), AMD would have a considerable advantage both from an economic and technological point of view.

Waiting for further rumors, we just have to wait for the autumn, when the RDNA 3 models should be launched, to discover the real potential of the new range.
