amd-confirms-imminent-launch-of-‘new-enthusiast-class-radeon-7000-series-playing-cards’

AMD is lastly committing to rounding out its RDNA 3 GPU stack, with Dr. Lisa Su promising it will be launching new “enthusiast-class” graphics playing cards earlier than the tip of October. We have already had sources suggesting an August reveal for brand new playing cards, and a September launch is trying fairly good straight away.

It is promising that Dr. Su is stating publicly that AMD goes to be releasing a number of playing cards, which means that we’ll see each the RX 7800 and RX 7700 GPUs dropping within the subsequent few months. After it dropped a solo Radeon RX 7600 on the finish of Could, there was perhaps some concern that it will proceed to drip-feed us RDNA 3 playing cards.

The announcement got here within the latest AMD Q2 financials name, where some extra green shoots of the PC business revival have been famous. These shoots are nonetheless fairly fragile, although, as AMD’s gaming phase remains to be affected by decrease GPU gross sales, down each year-on-year and in comparison with the earlier three months. Fortunately, it is semi-custom—console and handheld—chip enterprise remains to be rising, largely due to Sony and Microsoft, in order that’s offsetting AMD’s tenuous grip on the graphics card market.

Nevertheless it’s hoping to alter that within the subsequent few months, nevertheless, with Dr. Su stating: “We’re on observe to additional broaden our RDNA 3 GPU choices with the launch of recent, enthusiast-class Radeon 7000 sequence playing cards within the third quarter.”

And “enthusiast-class” sounds about right for an RX 7800 card that is trying like it would outperform Nvidia’s wonderful RTX 4070 and can in all probability are available considerably cheaper, too.

If you wish to see a boatload of recent GPUs then making them higher and cheaper than the competitors is an efficient solution to go about it, right?

That efficiency expectation has come from leaked RX 7800 3DMark numbers, however Nvidia will all the time counter with the dual advantages of DLSS 3 and Body Technology, although that’s nonetheless solely particularly accessible in a choose few video games straight away. 

With an RX 7700 popping out under it, that must arrange a tasty head-to-head between AMD’s new playing cards and Nvidia’s RTX 4060 Ti and RTX 4070 GPUs. Who wins? We do. Perhaps. Y’know, if costs begin getting extra aggressive, in any case.
