In a recent earnings call during Q2 2023, AMD’s CEO, Lisa Su, dropped a tantalizing hint about the company’s upcoming plans for its Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs. The new set of graphics cards, poised to debut in the third quarter of this year, is expected to cater to the demanding needs of enthusiasts and gaming enthusiasts alike.
Building on the success of the recently introduced RX 7600, AMD is now aiming to broaden its RDNA 3 GPU lineup with the introduction of these enthusiast-class Radeon RX 7000 series cards. Targeting the growing demand for high-performance gaming solutions, the new cards are set to take on NVIDIA’s RTX 4060 in a fierce competition for gaming supremacy.
While rumors circulate about the possibility of an update to the RX 7900 series, it seems that AMD’s plans are more focused on the RX 7800 XT. As deciphered by keen observers at VideoCardz, the RX 7800 XT could fall within the enthusiast category, distinct from the ultra-enthusiast RX 7900 models.
Furthermore, AMD’s ambitions don’t stop there. The company appears to be gearing up for a double launch, with the RX 7800 and RX 7700 series reportedly in the works for the same quarter. The reasoning behind this timing remains uncertain, but some speculations suggest that AMD may be strategically positioning these new entries to boost sales of its existing RX 6900/6800 RDNA2 models.
Intriguingly, the deployment of the Navi 32 GPU, codenamed “XL,” could play a pivotal role in AMD’s plans. Recently, the RX 7900 GRE GPU made its debut in the Chinese market, featuring the smaller Navi 31 GPU with additional cores. However, it remains unclear if AMD will adopt this technology across its entire lineup.
Meanwhile, in a surprising move, NVIDIA has reportedly shifted its focus away from the RTX 4090 Ti and is now working on the AD103 and AD106 models, designed to optimize chip sales in the Chinese market.
As the tech landscape braces for an exciting Q3, AMD enthusiasts eagerly await the arrival of the next-gen Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs. The battle for graphics supremacy between AMD and NVIDIA continues, promising innovation and exceptional performance for PC gaming enthusiasts worldwide.
