It's been about eight months since AMD launched its Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6900 XT RDNA 2 graphics cards. For the first time in years, AMD offers comparable performance to NVIDIA's GeForce family along the entire GPU stack from the entry-level sector to the high-end. Unfortunately for gamers, the cards have been nearly impossible to purchase at retail prices due to the high demand and chip shortages. With that said, attention is already shifting to the next-generation Radeon RX 7000 family, and a new rumor alleges that AMD will take a two-pronged approach with its GPUs. According to hardware leaker Greymon55, who posted their findings in a tweet, AMD will use RDNA 3 and RDNA 2 GPUs... Read more...
It is still too early for AMD to offer up any real details about its next generation Radeon products based on RDNA 3, though in making preparations for the eventual launch, the company has seemingly confirmed two unreleased GPUs: Navi 33 and Navi 31. Both have been added to documentation for AMD's ROCclr, or Radeon Open Compute Common Language Runtime. Additionally, the update to AMD's open source developer tools also confirm Rembrandt and Van Gogh, codenames for a pair of upcoming Ryzen 6000 series APUs pairing Zen 3 (Van Gogh) or possibly Zen 3+ (Rembrandt) processor cores with RDNA 2 graphics cores. It's also been rumored that these APU lines will support LPDDR5 and DDR5 memory. As for AMD's... Read more...
Most people would agree that AMD has done a fantastic job under the guidance of Dr. Lisa Su, who navigated the company into Zen and RDNA waters, the two major architectures that underpin its modern CPUs and GPUs. Having once again established itself as a relevant force in the high-end space, AMD is looking to keep the pedal firmly pushed to the metal, and is on track to launch Zen 4 and RDNA 3 next year. Next year is going to be interesting indeed. Bear in mind that rival Intel is getting ready to release its Alder Lake lineup this year, with supporting platforms (like the 600 series chipset) supporting DDR5 memory and PCI Express 5.0. Some of the early leaks surrounding Alder Lake suggest it... Read more...
We know AMD will soon be fleshing out its Radeon RX 6000 series with the Radeon RX 6600 XT and Radeon RX 6600 (add-in board partner PowerColor can hardly contain its excitement), but rumors are starting to surface about next-generation products, too. More specifically, the latest chatter suggests Navi 31 will burst onto the scene like the Kool-Aid man going through a brick wall, with a whopping 15,360 cores in tow. Before we get into the meat of the rumor, let's offer up a reference point, that being the Radeon RX 6900 XT. That is AMD's current generation flagship graphics card for gamers. It's powered by a Navi 21 XTX graphic chip with 80 compute units, 5,120 stream processors (or cores), and... Read more...
Internet sleuths should don their detective caps right about now, to solve the case of the secretive GPU codename that just surfaced within the Ashes of the Singularity database. There are actually two GPUs in this particular listing, both identified as Nashira Summit. Could this be an early look at AMD's third generation RDNA (RDNA 3) architecture? Well, that is one possibility. Adding to the intrigue, while this is the first time we have seen a reference to Nashira Summit, there has been at least one previous reference to Nasihra. That would be Nashira Point, which a USB-IF listing links to a Radeon graphics part. Beyond that, however, there are not any revealing details. At this point, there... Read more...
It may seem premature to start discussing AMD's next-generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 3) graphics architecture when RDNA 2 parts have barely penetrated the market. Be that as it may, the web is tangled with rumors, leaked information, and juicy nuggets of information. Of particular interest is the supposed makeup of Navi 31. There is plenty that will manifest between now and when Navi 31 arrives, of course. For example, there is chatter of AMD's unannounced (but very likely forthcoming) Radeon RX 6700 XT will pack a mid-range punch that is on par with and perhaps even faster than NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. We will have to wait and see. AMD will undoubtedly flesh out its Radeon RX 6000 series with... Read more...
AMD just unleashed the Ryzen 5000 Series onto the enthusiast community, and the processors have so far lived up to the hype delivering a massive overall lift in IPC. They have proven to be a dominant force that are more than a match for the latest consumer offerings from Intel, and will rule the roost until Intel can counter with Rocket Lake-S. But AMD isn't about to rest on its laurels. Though Ryzen 5000 is based on the company's Zen 3 architecture that's built on an enhanced 7nm process node, looking further out, AMD will be adopting a new Zen 4 architecture for its next-generation of processors, likely around this time next year. The Street interviewed AMD Executive VP...

Sitting just a little off in the distance is a new graphics architecture from AMD, which will power both next-gen game consoles (Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5) and a refreshed line of PC graphics cards. We are of course talking about RDNA 2. This is what will power 'Big Navi', the unofficial name of AMD's next burly GPU, but what comes after that? Well, the first developer beta for Apple's macOS Big Sur apparently contains multiple references to a GPU that could be underpinned by RDNA 3. Apple unveiled Big Sur during its recent Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event, along announcing that it is embarking on a two-year transition phase to replace Intel CPUs in its Mac with in-house silicon...
