AMD’s next generation of Radeon RX graphics cards will be powered by the third generation of its rapidly evolving GPU microarchitecture, RDNA 3. According to the latest rumors from various insiders, the Radeon RX 7000 Series is expected to boast a greater level of power efficiency thanks to major developments that include a multi-chip module (MCM) design. While both AMD and NVIDIA’s next-generation GPUs are rumored to be equally as power hungry as the current generation, RNDA 3 products will reportedly have an edge in performance and efficiency over green team’s Lovelace-based GeForce RTX 40 Series for reasons such as the competition’s adherence to a traditional, monolithic design. NVIDIA is expected to bounce back with the first MCM GPUs derived from its Hopper architecture, however, which are expected to provide triple the performance of current Ampere GPUs.

Don't be optimistic about the power consumption of the next generation of graphics cards.— Greymon55 (@greymon55) July 16, 2021
[…] KittyYYuko states that AMD RDNA 3 ‘Navi 31’ flagship could feature 60 WGPs which equals 120 Compute Units while Greymon55 states that the chip could reach up to 160 Compute Units. However, Kopite7kimi clarifies that 120 Compute Units per die should be the correct configuration and the full chip should reach 15,360 cores. It could be likely that the 80 WGP (160 CU) variant is a more high-end part that we haven’t heard about yet like the Big Navi 21 XTX rumors.
