“We are on track to further expand our RDNA 3 GPU offerings with the launch of new, enthusiast-class Radeon 7000 series cards in the third quarter,” said Lisa Su.via Seeking Alpha
The recent introduction of the RX 7600, which demonstrated strong performance against NVIDIA’s RTX 4060, has laid the foundation for AMD’s next move in the competitive GPU market. The upcoming Radeon RX 7000 series is expected to cater to the ever-growing demand for high-performance gaming solutions.
While some enthusiasts speculated that the announcement might be related to the RX 7900 series, VideoCardz has noted that the reference to “enthusiast-class” GPUs likely points to the RX 7800 XT being part of the enthusiast category.
In addition to the RX 7800 XT, there are indications that AMD could be preparing to launch both the RX 7800 and RX 7700 series before the end of Q3. The reasoning behind this strategy is yet to be officially confirmed, but there are speculations that it might be aimed at boosting sales of AMD’s existing RX 6900/6800 RDNA2 models.
Notably, AMD has been facing challenges with the deployment of the Navi 32 GPU. The recent launch of the RX 7900 GRE GPU for the Chinese market featured the Navi 31 GPU, codenamed “XL,” which has a smaller form factor but more cores than the standard Navi 32 GPU.
It remains to be seen whether AMD will adopt this technology across its entire lineup or limit it to specific models.
As the news of AMD’s upcoming GPU releases surfaces, rival NVIDIA has taken a different approach. The company reportedly canceled the RTX 4090 Ti and is now working on the AD103 and AD106 models, which are designed to optimize chip sales in the Chinese market.
With all eyes on Q3, AMD enthusiasts eagerly await the arrival of the next-generation Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs. As the competition between AMD and NVIDIA intensifies, consumers can expect new levels of innovation and performance in the PC gaming world.
