AMD Radeon RX 8000 Series “RDNA 4” Graphics Cards Will Reportedly Be Built on 3-Nanometer and 5-Nanometer Processes

AMD is currently working a next-generation successor to its RDNA 3 architecture called RDNA 4. That isn’t really a surprise, nor is the fact that it’ll likely be built using a smaller and much more advanced node process, but leakers are now claiming to know some of the specifics.

According to leaker Greymon55, who has made a habit out of sharing information on NVIDIA and AMD’s quickly approaching Lovelace and RDNA 3 GPUs as of late, red team will be leveraging 3-nanometer and 5-nanometer processes for its RDNA 4 products.

These are believed to be multi-chip-module designs that do away with the traditional monolithic dies for what are hopefully admirable gains in efficiency and performance. AMD’s RDNA 3 lineup of graphics cards, presumably the Radeon RX 7000 Series, is expected to be the first to include MCM-based models when they launch in 2022.

Red team’s RNDA 4-based Radeon RX 8000 Series is a bit further off and not expected to launch until late 2023. But perhaps the great graphics card drought will have finally resolved by then.

Greymon55 lists two nodes for the RDNA4 series, which obviously refers to the I/O part connecting the chiplets and the graphics tiles themselves. For NAVI4X MCM chips this means 3nm graphics tiles and 5nm I/O dies. Respectively, RDNA3 MCM GPUs will see 5nm and 6nm processes.
