AMD: next-gen RDNA 3 GPU has +50% performance-per-watt over RDNA 2
AMD has offered extra particulars for its next-gen RDNA 3 GPU structure, confirming that RDNA 3 includes a chiplet design — in comparison with the monolithic GPU we have gotten used to.

The information on RDNA 3 is coming from AMD itself throughout its latest Monetary Analyst Day 2022 the place Senior Vice President of Radeon Applied sciences Group, David Wang, confirmed off the roadmap for next-gen RDNA and CDNA GPUs. We now know that AMD is promising over 50% extra performance-per-watt with RDNA 3 over RDNA 2, cementing the rumors that NVIDIA’s next-gen GPUs can be utilizing FAR extra energy than RDNA 3 GPUs.
AMD says that the 50% performance-per-watt uplift is achieved by way of the shift to the brand new 5nm course of node by TSMC, superior chiplet packaging, rearchitected compute unit, optimized graphics pipeline, and next-gen AMD Infinity Cache know-how. Which means that we will anticipate a big efficiency soar from new Radeon RX 7000 sequence playing cards, that will not require 1200W+ energy provides and 4 x 8-pin energy connectors.
It has been a very long time coming, since I coated AMD’s next-gen RDNA 3 GPU extensively again in August 2020, practically two years in the past now.
However slowly over the previous two years, the entire small steps to get right here have been taken, together with TSMC getting its model new 5nm course of node pumping away, prepared for RDNA 3. Thrilling occasions for GPUs within the coming months, and I really cannot wait.
