lol I'll believe it when I see it.

The source they use is some rando on twitter with an anime profile picture lol

If you go by history then maybe you would give the rando with anime profile picture a bit more credit

And it's only going to cost 5x as much

ID: gx37eyx

After winning the "game" of finding one to buy at that.

Looking at the 5nm capacity, I doubt they are going to whiff again.

at this rate 2023 is the MSRP of the lower end cards.

That's some great news for people looking for a GPU with a MSRP to match their new Threadripper 5000 series CPU.

Pretty sure most people would like to hear how this will affect their chances of getting something decent in the low hundreds.

has there ever been such jump in performance? sounds very hard to believe

ID: gx3rr4x

Yeah. Back in the 90s and 2000s performance basically doubled every 18 months.

Nvidia ampere to Lovelace is said to be similar

press x to doubt

I just hope there's a good GPU for under $250. Before all this, the increase a 1660 Super would have gotten me over my 1060 wasn't worth the $230.

Last year I was very interested in purchasing a Sapphire Nitro+ 6800XT but after failing to secure one I have given up on that quest.

Navi 31 sounds like a good step upwards but for most of us the performance numbers are meaningless because we cannot even buy the current generation graphics card.

If Nvidia doesn't have the option to move to a chiplet design they are absolutely hooped. No amount of proprietary technology is going to make up for that hardware. And you won't even need a dlss solution at that point. With that level of power in theory you'd play Red dead Redemption 2 at 8K close to 80fps.

Pass me the ticket for the next hype train

ID: gx3qq8x

too late, you can only get the hype train tickets from scalpers.

That much of a jump? Hope its not a fluke.

It's hype, but I don't think it's completely outrageous.

Compare the 5700XT to the 6900XT.

That is the same comparison as the 6900XT to the hypothetical "7900XT" since it is going to double number the compute units.

Look at HUB 18 game average, the 6900XT is x2.04 over the 5700XT at 4K -- 102 vs 50.

If AMD can squeeze out another 35% from architectural improvements, they can get to 2.75x. (1.35 * 2.04 = 2.75)

If you compare the 5700XT to the 6700XT, that 35% is about the generational improvement at 4K, with the same number of CU's. So it's not impossible, if they can get good scaling with the extra CU's. It might also be they can get the clocks up to 3GHz or higher on the new 5nm process.

I think 2x would be the minimum to expect, since we already saw AMD do that going from Navi10 to Navi21, doubling the CU's.

ID: gx3wjh2

Double the CU from 6900XT, combined with 16GB of GDDR6X, and the cost increase from a 5nm node, man we are going to spend $2.5k for a top tier consumer gaming card.

I don't think it works that way anyway. With double the CU, the architectural improvements will likely be countered a lot by the lower clockspeeds due to the insane amount of heat it generates. Chiplet design improves thermals, but that's still 600W of heat.

Serious or not? I have been so happy since I managed to secure a 6900 XT from AMD, and now you are telling me it will become junk in a year's time?

ID: gx3xk98

You gotta be kidding right? The 6900xt will last years, far from "junk" and not to mention Good luck buying the next gen cards for MSRP. If the Rumors are even true and 2-3x more performance then these cards will fly off the shelves at a high price
