AMD’s upcoming RDNA 3 GPU could have up to 16,384 cores
AMD’s new RDNA architecture will be the company’s latest graphics processing unit (GPU) design, and it looks like it’ll be a significant improvement over the existing Vega and Polaris-based products currently on the market.
AMD has already previewed some of the features that are coming with RDNA, but now there are some additional details regarding some of the architecture’s capabilities that have surfaced on the Web.
Why Do We Need Such Massive GPUs?
Consoles like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are powered by AMD’s APUs with a combination of CPUs and GPUs.
Their CPU and GPU architecture is based on AMD’s Bobcat CPU core and Terascale 1 iteration of GCN respectively.
While they offer decent performance, they aren’t nearly as powerful as their full fledged desktop counterparts.
That said, there are some that believe that consoles won’t be able to keep up with PC technology in terms of graphical prowess for much longer.
AMD’s Next GPU architecture which is based on 7nm
According to Fuji Securities analyst Hideki Yasuda AMD will be releasing a 7nm VEGA GPU with up to 16.384 Cores and 64GB/s of memory bandwidth in 2019.
An improved version will launch in 2023 boasting as much as 32,768 Cores and 128GB/s of memory bandwidth.
How much faster will be this new processor compared to existing ones?
I think that AMD is doing a good job by keeping all information about it’s new processor under wraps, and as we know them they will not disappoint us with their new product.
We can expect only one thing that It will be more powerful than ever. I personally cannot wait for its release!
The number of cores per die will probably be in that range. We won’t know for sure until AMD reveals more information about its third-generation graphics architecture in 2023.
Any specifics would be pure speculation on our part at that point, but we can look at past architectures and make some educated guesses.
For example, AMD’s current Radeon RX Vega 64 offers four dedicated silicon dies (plus one special math processor die) with a total of 40 shaders per die.
