AMD engineer confirms Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards will get multi-die GPUs with different process technology

AMD has previously confirmed that next-gen RDNA 3 GPUs will be released this year. Today, one of the company’s Infinity Fabric interface engineers confirmed via its Linkedin page that the next generation of Navi 3X GPUs will be based on 5nm and 6nm process technologies.

According to AMD’s plans, the Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards are to be launched at the same time as the new Raphael processors based on the Zen 4 architecture, but the manufacturer has not yet announced which process technology the new graphics accelerators will be based on. Accidentally or intentionally, this information was disclosed by an AMD engineer who stated in his profile on the Linkedin website that he was working on projects for Navi 31 and Navi 32 GPUs based on 6nm and 5nm process technology as well as Navi 33 GPU worked 6nm process technology.

This information confirms previous rumors that Navi 33 will be the only GPU in the RDNA 3 graphics series to feature a monolithic die design. The remaining chips, in turn, will use a hybrid architecture consisting of multiple chips manufactured using two different technical processes.

The AMD engineer also mentioned the MI300 compute accelerators, which will replace the Instinct MI200 released for data centers last year. Rumor has it that these solutions will be the first among AMD accelerators to adopt a multi-chiplet MCM GPU layout. So far nothing is known about this series of accelerators, except that they will probably have to compete on the market with solutions such as NVIDIA Hopper and Intel Ponte Vecchio.

Shortly after observant netizens drew attention to information about AMD’s upcoming GPUs, the company’s engineer removed them from his site. Now it looks like the picture above.
