Next Generation of Nvidia and AMD Graphic card Scheduled for later this year, we’ve heard a lot from the rumored factory about when these Lovelace and RDNA 3 products will arrive. The result is a hint of how the next-generation GPU war will unfold.
This is from the German tech site 3DCenter.org, which presents a summary of all the rumored tapes, test and release dates for the next graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD, and two major Twitter leakers: I’ve compiled it using the latest information from Kopite7kimi. And Greymon 55.
Of course, this is just a summary of rumors and guesswork. As the 3D Center reveals, there’s a big warning about accuracy here, but it’s still interesting to see how speculation about which GPU comes first is formed (and this is a tie). I’ve heard it elsewhere, so I’ll give it a little more weight. I will explain it later).
Therefore, according to the predictions made here, both Nvidia and AMD early products – probably RTX 4000 RX7000 Series – The former will be the top-end AD102 and the latter will be the Navi 33, which may arrive in September or October 2022.
This means that the first product from Nvidia could be the flagship RTX 4090, and that alone, perhaps the latest rumor from Kopite7kimi, is that the RTX 4080 doesn’t use the AD102 chip. Actually it is built around AD103 (Of course, help yourself with some seasonings in that claim).
Meanwhile, AMD plans to push out Navi33 products, which are mid-range GPUs rather than high-end ones. There is confusion about exactly where the boundaries of the Navi 33 are, and Moore’s Law, the latest famous leaker, is dead, but these GPUs could even be RX7600 or 7700 models.
Nvidia’s next Lovelace graphics card is said not to be too late, but the AD103 and AD104 can represent the RTX 4080, 4070, 4060 and will start testing after a month or two. RTX 4090That is, all these GPUs should debut at some point in the fourth quarter of 2022 (and probably in November, as a vague best guess from what we saw here).
AMD, meanwhile, theorizes that if this rumor is correct, it will keep gamers waiting for the rest of the lineup until 2023, with the flagship RX 7900 (Navi 31) product coming out early this year (probably January), and The remaining RDNA 3 series (including RX 7800 products) may not arrive until the spring of 2023 (ie Navi 32).
Analysis: What are the benefits of AMD, at least initially?
The most important thing to keep in mind here is that even if this is currently the intended release schedule for Nvidia and AMD, the testing process still has a long way to go, so things can change anyway. is. When you think of these as just rumors, it’s clear that you need to be very careful about putting excess inventory during these expected release periods.
Interestingly, however, on the AMD side, this is consistent with what we’ve heard from YouTuber’s Moore’s Law. Those who believe that Navi 32 will not arrive until the first half of 2023So next spring will look almost right. He also thinks the Navi 33 product will be the first to go outdoors for AMD, so it’s the three leakers who make that prediction, and the rumors are a little more important.
The difference in Moore’s Law is that it’s dead, while the flagship RDNA3 product claims to keep up with Navi33 at all, while the 3D Center summary predicts a much larger gap.
In any case, given what’s floating here, the first battle of the next-generation GPU war could be Nvidia’s top-end vs. AMD midrange, at least in terms of gaining traction in recruitment. Exit the gate that should give TeamRed an advantage.
The problem with Nvidia is that if only the RTX 4090 is sold in the first place, it’s always a niche proposal with a high price tag, In addition, the rumored power demand It can force gamers to upgrade their PSUs, which can make them even more difficult to sell (in terms of hassle and additional cost to switch). power supply).
Therefore, AMD’s RDNA 3 range could jump to Nvidia first if this turns out to be worth the money. That is, assume that Team Red can increase production and supply can meet demand.
However, Nvidia shouldn’t be too late for the rest of the RTX 4000 lineup, and at least in theory, AMD should bring in all these cards before releasing anything else. Therefore, depending on the relative benefits and pricing (and inventory levels) of these GPUs, the situation could return to Team Green fairly quickly.
Finally, by the second half of 2023, the GPU world will no longer be a two-horse race, and we don’t know how Intel’s desktop Arc graphics card will affect it ()They should come out next monthAnd will probably be on a fairly large number of shelves in late 2022).
