Moore’s Law Is Dead has shared some interesting performance claims for AMD’s RDNA 3-based Radeon RX 7900 XT, which is believed to use an advanced node. The new GPU is expected to feature a 40 percent minimum performance increase over its predecessor. It could also see gains of up to 60 to 80 percent. Ray tracing and geometry performance per Dual-CU should also see improvement. According to AMD, RDNA 3 will have a 50 percent gain in efficiency over RDNA 2.

The Per Dual-CU claim is worth noting here, as this should allow AMD to increase their GPU’s ray tracing performance without relying on higher CU counts to increase their RT throughput. If AMD also launches GPUs with higher CU counts with RDNA 3, gamers can expect AMD’s ray tracing performance to explode with their next-generation offerings.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
