AMD Launches Next-Gen Radeon RX 7000 Series Graphics Cards
November 4, 2022
Today, AMD unveiled two new graphics cards built on the next-generation high-performance, energy-efficient AMD RDNA 3 architecture – the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT. These graphics cards are the world’s first gaming graphics cards to feature an advanced AMD chiplet design.
The AMD RDNA 3 architecture’s chiplet design combines 5nm and 6nm process nodes, each optimized for specific tasks. This breakthrough architecture delivers up to 54% more performance per watt than the previous generation (AMD RDNA 2). It also features the world’s fastest interconnect linking the graphics and memory system chiplets at up to 5.3 TB/s and offers up to 96 new unified compute units, second-generation AMD Infinity Cache technology, and up to 24 GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory with up to a 384-bit memory interface. In addition, the AMD RDNA 3 architecture includes increased AI throughput that delivers up to 2.7X higher AI performance and second-generation raytracing technology that provides up to 1.8X higher raytracing performance than AMD RDNA 2.
Altogether, these features and advancements deliver up to a 1.7X performance uplift in select titles at 4K compared to AMD RDNA 2. The Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards also support DisplayPort 2.1 displays capable of delivering ultra-high framerates and stunning visuals at up to 4K 480Hz and 8K 165Hz refresh rates.
Scott Herkelman, Senior Vice President & General Manager of the Graphics Business Unit at AMD, stated: “These new graphics cards are designed by gamers for gamers. As we were developing the new cards, we not only incorporated feedback from our customers, but we built in the features and capabilities we wanted to use. We also realized that we needed to do something different to continue pushing the envelope of the technology, and I’m proud of what the team has accomplished with AMD RDNA 3 and the Radeon RX 7900 Series graphics cards. I can’t wait for gamers to experience the powerhouse performance, incredibly vivid visuals and amazing new features these new graphics cards offer.”
The Radeon RX 7900 Series graphics cards are expected to be available from AMD.com beginning December 13, 2022, and from leading board partners including ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, Sapphire, Vastarmor, XFX, and Yeston beginning mid-December. The Radeon RX 7900 XTX has an SEP of $999, while the Radeon RX 7900 XT has an SEP of $899.
Overall, the Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards offer exceptional performance and superb energy efficiency to power high-framerate 4K and higher resolution gaming in the most demanding titles. They are sure to impress even the most hardcore gamers.
