AMD's Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards based on the RDNA 3 architecture are rumored for launch in Q4 2022, reports Greymon55. The leaker has been at the forefront of sharing details & tidbits regarding the RDNA 3 lineup and it looks like we may finally have a concrete timeframe for the lineup.
AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series 'RDNA 3' Graphics Card Lineup Rumored For Q4 Launch Between October and November
The AMD Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will be focusing on the high-end variants first with the likes of the Navi 31, Navi 32, and Navi 33 GPUs. Previous rumors had mentioned Navi 33 to be followed by Navi 31 and then Navi 32 GPU-based graphics cards but the leaker had earlier pointed out that those plans were no longer applicable. We don't know which GPUs will hit the market first but AMD is likely to unveil its Navi 33 and Navi 31 variants first. As for the launch, the cards are either expected in Late October or Mid-November which means a Q4 2022 launch.
