According to the latest rumors, the next generation of AMD RDNA 3 GPUs in the Radeon RX 7000 could reach almost 4 GHz.
AMD RDNA 3 “Radeon RX 7000” graphics processors may be the first to hit nearly 4 GHz, rumor says
The rumor comes as a tweet posted by a hardware leak, HXL (@ 9550Pro) which reported 4 GHz GPU speeds for the upcoming Radeon RX 7000 GPUs with RDNA 3. HXL says these new chips will be able to “almost” reach 4 GHz, and even getting closer to 4 GHz will be a huge achievement for AMD.

If we take a step back, AMD was the first to break the 1 GHz barrier with its 28nm Tahiti GPUs used in the GCN-based Radeon RX 7970 GHz Edition graphics card. The company also delivered crazy clock rates in the previous generation with its RDNA 2 line, easily reaching over 3.0 GHz. Now the company is going to use the TSMC 5nm process node and it looks like the red band is clearly looking at a new milestone, and that is the 4GHz GPU frequency designation.
AMD has already shown a massive increase in clock speed by using the TSMC 5nm process node for its Zen 4 cores. we will get impressive speeds from the next generation GPU line.
Improved Adaptive Power Management and Next Generation Infinity Cache for RDNA 3 confirmed
In addition to the 4 GHz rumors, AMD vice president and technology architect Sam Naffziger stressed that next-generation RDNA 3 GPUs used in the Radeon RX 7000 and next-generation iGPU GPUs will offer a range of new technologies, including an enhanced adaptive power management technology that enables setting operating points for a specific workload, ensuring that the GPU only uses the power required for the load. GPUs will also feature the next generation AMD Infinity Cache, which will provide a higher-density, lower-power cache and lower power requirements for graphics memory.
Looking to the future, we continue our quest for more efficient gaming with AMD RDNA 3 architecture. wat than the AMD RDNA 2 architecture – truly delivers top gaming performance for gamers in cool, quiet, and energy-efficient builds.
Contributing to this energy-efficient design, AMD RDNA 3 refines AMD’s RDNA 2 adaptive power management technology to set load-specific operating points, ensuring that each GPU component consumes only as much power as it needs for optimal performance. The new architecture also introduces a new generation of AMD Infinity Cache, which aims to offer caches with even higher density and lower power to reduce the need for graphics memory power, helping to solidify AMD RDNA 3 and Radeon graphics cards as true performance leaders.
We’re excited about the improvements we’re making to AMD RDNA 3 and its predecessors, and believe that even more can be pulled from our architectures and advanced process technologies, delivering unmatched performance per watt across the stack as we continue our work. emphasis on better play.
Some of the key features of AMD’s RDNA 3 GPUs include:
- 5 nm process node
- Advanced packing of chipsets
- Rebuilt compute unit
- Optimized graphics pipeline
- Next Generation AMD Infinity Cache
- Improved ray tracing capabilities
- Improved Adaptive Power Management
- > 50% efficiency / W compared to RDNA 2
The AMD Radeon RX 7000 “RDNA 3” line of GPUs based on Nav 3x GPUs is expected to launch later this year.
