Last week a claim surfaced about AMD's Navi 31 potentially being up to three times more powerful than the current Navi 21. It seemed too good to be true and now there's a clarification from YouTube channel Moore's Law is Dead. The YouTuber claims AMD's next generation could be triple as fast as the original RDNA architecture. He expects that in terms of performance, RDNA3 may be 60 to 80 percent more powerful than the current RDNA2 cards.
The RDNA 3 architecture is expected to feature a chiplet-based design with discrete I/O and compute dies similar to Ryzen processors. AMD has officially said they are targetting a 50% performance/watt increase over RDNA 2 with the new architecture which lends weight to this rumor. -- TechPowerUp
Guess we'll find out next year! RDNA3 cards like the Radeon RX 7900 XT are expected to hit the market by mid-2022. Still a long time to go of course, and way too early for accurate rumors about the specifications of these cards.
