Following on the heels of AMD’s CPU-centric occasion again in August, AMD in the present day has despatched out a press launch asserting that they are going to be holding an identical occasion in November for his or her Radeon client graphics enterprise. Dubbed “collectively we advance_gaming”, the presentation is slated to be all about AMD Radeon, with a give attention to the upcoming RDNA 3 graphics structure and all of the efficiency and energy effectivity advantages it’s going to deliver. The occasion is ready to kick off on November 3rd at 1pm PT (20:00 UTC), with undisclosed AMD executives presenting particulars.
Just like the Ryzen occasion in August, subsequent month’s Radeon occasion seems to be AMD gearing up for the launch of its subsequent technology of client merchandise – this time on the GPU facet of issues. Again at first of the summer time, AMD confirmed that RDNA 3 architecture products were scheduled to arrive this year, so now we have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of AMD’s subsequent technology of video playing cards.
Although not like AMD’s CPU efforts, the corporate has been way more mum about its next-gen GPU efforts. So particulars prematurely on what is going to presumably be the Radeon RX 7000 collection have been restricted. The largest objects disclosed to this point are that AMD is concentrating on one other 50% improve in performance-per-watt, and that these new GPUs (Navi 3x) will likely be made on a 5nm course of (undoubtedly TSMC’s). Previous that, AMD hasn’t given any steering on what to anticipate for efficiency.
One attention-grabbing facet, nevertheless, is that AMD has confirmed that they are going to be using chiplets with this technology of merchandise. To what extent, and whether or not that’s on all components or simply some, stays to be seen. However chiplets are in some respects the holy grail of GPU building, as a result of they offer GPU designers choices for scaling up GPUs previous in the present day’s die measurement (reticle) and yield limits. That stated, it’s additionally a holy grail as a result of the immense quantity of information that have to be handed between totally different components of a GPU (on the order of terabytes per second) may be very onerous to do – and really essential to do if you need a multi-chip GPU to have the ability to current itself as a single gadget.
We’re additionally apparently in retailer for some extra important upgrades to AMD’s total GPU structure. Although what precisely a “rearchitected compute unit” and “optimized graphics pipeline” totally entail stays to be seen.
Fortunately we should always have our reply right here in two weeks. The presentation is slated to air on November 3rd at 1pm Pacific, on AMD’s YouTube channel. And naturally, you’ll want to take a look at AnandTech for a full rundown and evaluation of AMD’s bulletins.
