Moore’s Law Is Dead has shared some rumors pertaining to AMD’s upcoming RDNA 3 and RDNA 4 GPUs, which are expected to power the Radeon RX 7000 and Radeon RX 8000 Series, respectively.

According to the leaker’s sources, RDNA 3 products will boast performance improvements of up to 60 percent at minimum, with the next-generation flagship graphics card offering roughly double the performance of the Radeon RX 6900 XT. The Radeon RX 7000 Series will also feature much better ray tracing performance, although power usage is expected to be higher than the current lineup.

Unfortunately, AMD is also supposedly planning to increase the prices of its Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards substantially. More specifically, sources claim that pricing will be increased by “almost an entire tier,” which implies that mid-ranged RDNA 3 cards could be priced nearly as high as the current flagships.

Moore’s Law Is Dead has shared some spreadsheets teasing how AMD’s RDNA 3 and RDNA 3 products might be priced. The charts suggest that the Radeon RX 7950 XT could cost as high as $1,999, while the RDNA 4-based Radeon RX 8950 XT could cost $2,499.

One source claims that AMD’s RDNA 4 products will feature a 50 percent performance boost over RDNA 3, while others suggest that the performance increase should be comparable to what NVIDIA managed between its Ampere and Turing generations.

AMD’s first RDNA 3 products are expected to launch in Q3 or Q4 2022, while RDNA 4 should be out by the end of 2023 or early 2024.
