AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, 6600 XT More likely to Get 6nm Refreshes in 2022


AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card is well probably the most extensively accessible RDNA 2 half in the marketplace. It’d be secure to imagine that the SKU has been one of many extra profitable “funds” GPUs in the marketplace (these days). Whereas the Navi 21-based Radeon RX 6900 XT, 6800 XT, and 6800 struggle the GeForce RTX 30 sequence GPUs inch for inch (besides in RT titles), their provides have been very restricted, very similar to their rivals.

In keeping with @Greymon55, Navi 22 and 23 are seemingly going to get refreshes based mostly on TSMA’s 6nm course of node. This shall be a late cycle refresh providing higher provide somewhat than a efficiency enhance in comparison with the unique SKUs. The upper-end Navi 21 choices will immediately get an improve to Navi 31 and Navi 32.

The Navi 33 based mostly Radeon RX 7700 XT and 7700 ought to arrive a couple of months after the RX 7900 XT and 7800 XT. It will likely be roughly on par with the Radeon RX 6000 flagship, providing a large efficiency enhance over its predecessor. Until then, AMD will hold the market glad with the Navi 22/23 refreshes. These will virtually be the identical chips with barely larger enhance clocks and aggressive pricing.

AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XT flagship shall be based mostly on an MCM (chiplet) design with a complete of over 15 thousand cores (15,360 to be precise) throughout 60 WGPs. It ought to simply be 2.2-2.5x sooner than its predecessor, with the RX 7800 XT (Navi 33) beating the RX 6800 XT by 30-40%. The Radeon RX 7900 XT will leverage the Navi 31 dies, seemingly two of them. The Navi 31 will leverage as much as 512 MB of L3 “Infinity Cache” 3D stacked on prime of the Graphics Compute Die (GCD) or the interconnect bridge between the GCDs (very similar to Milan-X and Zen 3D).

The Navi 33 die will reportedly pack 4096 shaders (stream processors). It’s anticipated to energy the Radeon RX 7600 XT, making it a large improve over the present Radeon RX 6600 XT and its 2,304 shaders. We’re taking a look at a rise of greater than 2x if you happen to embody the IPC, compute, and frequency beneficial properties. The Radeon RX 7600 XT is predicted to pack 128-256 MB of Infinity Cache. Rumors point out a monolithic design, with 4 32-bit reminiscence controllers for an total bus width of 128-bit.
