AMD’s next-generation RDNA 3 GPUs featured in the Radeon RX 7000 can reach clock speeds of almost 4GHz, according to the latest rumours.
AMD RDNA 3 “Radeon RX 7000” GPUs Could Be First Chips To Reach Almost 4GHz Clock Speed, Rumored
The rumor comes in the form of a tweet posted by a hardware leaker. HXL (@9550Pro) quoted a GPU speed of 4 GHz for its upcoming RDNA 3-powered Radeon RX 7000 GPUs. HXL says that these new chips will be able to achieve clock speeds of “Almost” 4 GHz, and even getting close to 4 GHz would be a huge achievement for AMD.

Going back a bit, AMD was the first to disrupt 1 GHz clock speed barrier With 28nm Tahiti GPUs featured on the GCN-based Radeon RX 7970 GHz Edition graphics card. The company also introduced some crazy clock speeds in the previous generation with the RDNA 2 line. Easily reach clock speeds in excess of 3.0 GHz. Now the company will use TSMC’s 5nm process node, and it seems that the red team is clearly following a new milestone, which is a 4 GHz GPU clock tick.
AMD has already demonstrated a large clock speed increase using TSMC’s 5nm process node for its Zen 4 cores. Given that AMD is applying key learnings from its Zen CPUs to other IPs, such as its RDNA GPU lineup, there should be no doubt that we’ll get some impressive speeds from the next-gen GPU lineup.
Improved Adaptive Power Management and Next Generation Infinity Cache for RDNA 3 Confirmed
In addition to the 4GHz rumor, AMD’s SVP and Technology Architect Sam Naffziger highlighted that the next-generation RDNA 3 GPUs, featured in Radeon RX 7000 GPUs and next-generation iGPUs, will offer a number of new technologies, including Improved adaptive power management technology to set workload-specific operating points to ensure the GPU uses only the power required for the workload. The GPUs will also feature next-generation AMD Infinity Cache, which offers higher-density, lower-power caches and reduced power requirements for graphics memory.
Looking ahead, we continue our efforts for more efficient gaming with AMD RDNA 3 architecture. As the first AMD graphics architecture to use our 5nm process and chiplet packaging technology, AMD RDNA 3 is on track to deliver an estimated >50 percent better performance per watt compared to AMD RDNA 2 architecture – delivering truly top-notch gaming. performance to gamers in cool, quiet and energy-efficient designs.
Contributing to this energy-conscious design, AMD RDNA 3 improves on AMD RDNA 2 adaptive power management technology to set specific operating points for the workload, ensuring that each component of the GPU uses only the power it requires for optimal performance. The new architecture also introduces a new generation of AMD Infinity Cache, which will offer higher-density, lower-power caches to reduce the power demand of graphics memory, helping to solidify AMD RDNA 3 and Radeon graphics as true performance leaders.
We’re very pleased with the improvements we’ve made with AMD RDNA 3 and its predecessors, and believe that more is to be gained from our architectures and advanced process technologies, and we’re delivering unmatched performance per watt across the stack. push for a better game.
Some of its main features RDNA 3 GPU highlighted by AMD includes:
- 5nm process node
- Advanced Chiplet Packaging
- Rebuilt computing unit
- Optimized Graphics Pipeline
- Next generation AMD Infinity Cache
- Improved Ray Tracing Capabilities
- Improved Adaptive Power Management
- >50% Perf/Watt compared to RDNA 2
Based on the Nav 3x GPUs, the AMD Radeon RX 7000 “RDNA 3” GPU suite is expected to follow the launch of the flagship Navi 31 later this year, followed by the Navi 32 and Navi 33 GPUs.
