AMD has shared a new article titled “advancing performance-per-watt to benefit gamers” ahead of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 Series reveal, stating that its next-gen graphics architecture, RDNA 3, is on track to deliver “50 percent better performance per watt” than RDNA 2. The new architecture will enable “top-of-the-line gaming performance,” with Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards and other GPU products coming in “cool, quiet, and energy-conscious designs,” according to the company.

From AMD:

Looking ahead, we’re continuing our push for more efficient gaming with AMD RDNA 3 architecture. As the first AMD graphics architecture to leverage the 5nm process and our chiplet packaging technology, AMD RDNA 3 is on track to deliver an estimated 50 percent better performance per watt than AMD RDNA 2 architecture – truly bringing top-of-the-line gaming performance to gamers in cool, quiet, and energy-conscious designs.

Contributing to this energy-conscious design, AMD RDNA 3 refines the AMD RDNA 2 adaptive power management technology to set workload-specific operating points, ensuring each component of the GPU uses only the power it requires for optimal performance. The new architecture also introduces a new generation of AMD Infinity Cache, projected to offer even higher-density, lower-power caches to reduce the power needs of graphics memory, helping to cement AMD RDNA 3 and Radeon graphics as a true leader in efficiency.

We’re thrilled with the improvements we’re making with AMD RDNA 3 and its predecessors, and we believe there’s even more to be pulled from our architectures and advanced process technologies, delivering unmatched performance per watt across the stack as we continue our push for better gaming.

Some of the faster Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards will be able to hit clock speeds as high as 4 GHz, if a recent tweet from @9550pro is to be believed. AMD is expected to launch the first of these products later this year.
