6nm RDNA GPU, 8 GB GDDR6, equals RX 6900 XT in rasterization & faster in rating, 200W Power & higher performance than NVIDIA Lovelace

The latest details of AMD’s mid-range Navi 33 GPU based on the RTNA3 architecture that runs the Radeon RX7700XD graphics card are described in Moore’s Law Is Ted’s latest video.

The AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT graphics card used for the Navi 33 RDNA 3 GPU is similar to the 6900 XT raterization, faster in rating and more capable than the Nvidia Lovelace

The AMD RDNA 3 GPU array consists of monolithic and multi-chiplet solutions. The Navi 33 GPU is considered an intermediate chip, and is an upgrade over the Navi 21 GPU in the new RTNA 3 architecture. It is based on the 6nm monolithic design and should measure between 360-460mm2. Compared to the Navi 21 GPU, this is reduced by 11 to 30 percent, which drives the high-end Radeon RX 6000 series and measures 520mm2 tie. Key features of the Navi 33 GPU:

After the SP5 socket, AMD’s EPYC Genoa CPU with 12 Next-Gen 4 CCDs has up to 96 cores on the 5nm node.

  • TSMC 6nm process node (monolithic GPU design)
  • RDNA 3 graphics core (increased clocks / performance)
  • 8GB GDDR6 memory upgraded across the 128-bit bus
  • Faster GDDR6 memory speed
  • Rasterization performance is equal to or greater than the RX 6900 XT
  • Ray tracing performance is higher than the RX 6900 XT

AMD RDNA 3 Navi 33 GPUs for the Radeon RX 7700 Series

The AMD Navi 33 GPU will launch the monolithic division into the RDNA 3 family. The GPU will have a single tie. The tie is very similar to the flagship Navi 21 GPU and is expected to use a 6nm process node for fabrication.

AMD Navi 33 GPU Architectural Design ‘Rumor’

The Navi 33 GCD is expected to have 2 shader engines, and each shader engine will have 2 shader rows (2 for a total SE / 4). Each shader row has 5 WGPs (each SE / 20 total) and each WGP has 8 SIMD32 units (40 SIMD32 per SA / 80 per SE / 160 total). These SIMD32 units together form 5120 cores, the same core number as the RX 6900 XT (Navi 21 XTX GPU).

However, based on the new numbers, the RDNA 3 Navi 33 GPU will have a total of 16 WGPs or 4096 cores. We do not know whether this is the specific configuration of the updated chip or whether the new Radeon RX 7000 cards will have the cut-down configuration of 1 WGP disabled Navi 33 chips per shader row. Many structures of RDNA 3 are said to be larger, smaller or completely different than RDNA 3, which replaces the RDNA 2 modification with a brand new design.

Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ CPUs powered by AMD 5nm Zen 4 are rumored to enter mass production this month

The Navi 33 is essentially an alternative to the Navi 23 in the GFX11 configuration, and we know that the Navi 23 has only 2048 cores, half of the amount allegedly featured on the Navi 33. The Navi 23 GPU is featured on the Radeon RX 6600 series cards. Unless AMD wants to move one layer with the Navi 31 powerful RX 7900 series, Navi 32 powerful RX 7800 series and Navi 33 RX 7700 series, one might consider upgrading the Navi 33 AMD’s RX 7600 series line. The RX 7600 series and below will be based on the updated 6nm RDNA 2 GPUs.

AMD Navi 33 GPU Features, Price, Performance ‘Rumor’

Navi 33 (RDNA 3) is expected to carry 128-256 MB Infinity cache. The GPU 2 also has memory connector connections (32-bit). A total of 4 32-bit memory controllers for the 128-bit bus interface. The card offers lower power consumption as the memory is halved compared to the 6900 XT. This will enable AMD to reduce costs on the BOM and will offer cards in this performance range in the $ 400- $ 500 US bracket.

In terms of performance, the Navi 33 GPU based AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT is expected to deliver better performance in the 6900 XT class or ray tracing, but given the reduced memory format it will succeed when the resolution is increased. So the card will be around 1080p and similar to 1440p, but will be equal to or slower in 4K due to the 8 GB VRAM limit. The Raytracing 6900 XT is expected to be a stronger suit with more card performance. Now it may seem like the 8GB has been downgraded against the 6900 XT, but once the price is set it will actually end up being a better option, which not only reduces the cost but also allows the card to be built higher without worrying about GDDR6 distribution.

This will bring the performance of the AMD Radeon RX 7600 Series to the RX 6800 and RX 6900 series on TDP at 200W (180-230W). There is also talk of the PCIe interface being Gen 5.0 with x8 connectivity, and Gen 4 and Gen 3 x8 connections seem to be something to worry about as they can feed the card with sufficient bandwidth. Performance will be a very strong set of AMD’s RDNA 3, and the red team is going to get a significant lead over NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 ‘Ada Lovelace’ line, which is expected to be very powerful. Some things are also cooked on the green team We can quickly hear from reliable leaks.
