AMD’s VP Scott Herkelman posted on his Twitter account a picture announcing the launch of “RDNA3 to the world,” which will be held on November 3rd. The time is closing in and the details on specific RDNA3 cards are awash in hype and rumor.
At this moment, there is a ton of misinformation scattered around the web on RDNA3, but what seems to be the clearest fact is that Team Red team will be dropping three main RDNA3 cards: Navi 31, 32, and 33. Navi 31 would power the most intense and high-end GPU, such as the Radeon RX 7900 XT, while Navi 32 and 33 will be saved for the firm’s mid-range GPUs.
Following the same pattern of last year’s RDNA2 launch, AMD could be launching a total of four RNDA3 cards powered by Navi 31, 32, and 33. And the launch could look like this:
- AMD Radeon RX 7600
- AMD Radeon RX 7700
- AMD Radeon RX 7800
- AMD Radeon RX 7900
How much will RDNA3 cards cost?
GPU prices have been slow normalizing throughout this year. Nvidia, for example, launched its RTX 40 series cards with a somewhat similar MSRP to the previous series. So we can expect some price increases, but nothing to be too alarmed about. According to experts’ speculation, we could see a 10%-20% increase, with prices mirroring the following:
|AMD Radeon RX 7600||$350|
|AMD Radeon RX 7700 / XT||$450|
|AMD Radeon RX 7800 / XT||$600 – $1000|
|AMD Radeon RX 7900 / XT||$1000 – $1500|
Rumors also claim that AMD’s new graphics cards could be much cheaper to produce, so AMD RX’s series might have better profit margins at MSRP than Nvidia’s. This could be a momentous opportunity for AMD to outsell Nvidia’s RTX 40 series.
At this point, there are only a few weeks remaining until the launch of RDNA3 and AMD hasn’t said a peep about pricing, so everything is steeped in rumor. Additionally, as one may expect, there are no pre-order pages up just yet, and it is still unknown which site would be the principal retailer for RX 7000 series GPUs. Newegg, Best Buy, and Amazon are to be the most obvious places, but for now, all we can do is subscribe to AMD’s newsletter and receive all of the updates directly from it regarding this launch.
