Following on the heels of AMD’s CPU-centric occasion again in August, AMD right this moment has despatched out a press launch asserting that they are going to be holding the same occasion in November for his or her Radeon shopper graphics enterprise. Dubbed “collectively we advance_gaming”, the presentation is slated to be all about AMD Radeon, with a concentrate on the upcoming RDNA 3 graphics structure and all of the efficiency and energy effectivity advantages it would carry. The occasion is about 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 era of shopper merchandise – this time on the GPU facet of issues. Again firstly of the summer time, AMD confirmed that RDNA 3 structure merchandise have been scheduled to reach this 12 months, so we’ve got been eagerly awaiting the arrival of AMD’s subsequent era of video playing cards.
Although in contrast to AMD’s CPU efforts, the corporate has been much more mum about its next-gen GPU efforts. So particulars prematurely on what’s going to presumably be the Radeon RX 7000 sequence have been restricted. The most important objects disclosed to date are that AMD is focusing on one other 50% enhance in performance-per-watt, and that these new GPUs (Navi 3x) might 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 fascinating side, nevertheless, is that AMD has confirmed that they are going to be using chiplets with this era of merchandise. To what extent, and whether or not that’s on all elements or simply some, stays to be seen. However chiplets are in some respects the holy grail of GPU building, as a result of they provide GPU designers choices for scaling up GPUs previous right this moment’s die dimension (reticle) and yield limits. That mentioned, it’s additionally a holy grail as a result of the immense quantity of information that should be handed between totally different elements of a GPU (on the order of terabytes per second) could be very arduous to do – and really essential to do in order for you a multi-chip GPU to have the ability to current itself as a single machine.
We’re additionally apparently in retailer for some extra vital upgrades to AMD’s general GPU structure. Although what precisely a “rearchitected compute unit” and “optimized graphics pipeline” totally entail stays to be seen.
Fortunately we must 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 should definitely try AnandTech for a full rundown and evaluation of AMD’s bulletins.
