AMD Radeon RX 7000 “RDNA 3” GPUs shipping in late 2022

AMD also reiterated that the company would be launching its “High-End” RDNA 3 GPUs later this year. This looks like Zen 3 and RDNA 2 launched just months apart. It looks like we will get a teaser of the RDNA 3 Radeon RX 7000 GPUs during the launch of Ryzen 7000 but the official launch would take place in October or November. AMD focusing on the high-end for the first time means that their a top-end solution in the competition directly opposed NVIDIA’s high-end Ada Lovelace graphics cards.

Although we expect the gaming graphics market to be down in the third quarter, we are still focusing on executing our GPU roadmap, including the launch of our high-end triple GPU RDNA later this year.

Looking ahead, customer traction for our next-generation 5-nanometer general-purpose server CPU is very strong. We are on track to launch Genova production and ramp it up as the highest performing general purpose server CPU in the industry later this year, positioning our data center business for continued growth and share gains.

In addition to Genoa, we have our Bergamo, which is also a cloud-optimized capability due to come online early next year. So there are many new products that support our growth ambitions.

From what we see today, again, Genoa has a strong customer attraction.
