Twitter leaker Greymon55 claims AMD will repurpose some of its existing GPUs for the future Radeon RX 7000 series. It will not be a mere rebadge though, AMD will at least put in the effort to do an optical shrink to TSMC's 6nm. VideoCardz writes the Radeon RX 7600 will likely get a 6nm version of the Navi 22 while the Radeon RX 7500 could get a 6nm edition of the Navi 23.
The same leaker previously claimed that the Navi 4X GPU series based on RDNA4 microarchitecture might offer more GPU SKUs than the Navi 3X series. At this moment only three Navi 3X GPUs are expected: 31, 32, and 33.
Furthermore, there are rumors that Navi 33 is a 6nm version of Navi 21 with a couple of new features. If all of this is true, only the Navi 31 and Navi 32 will be "fully" new GPUs. The latter two are expected to use TSMC's 5nm node.
