Formally, the gaming segment AMD represented the largest revenue among the other divisions in the first quarter with 1.76 billion US dollars. The management only complained that the proceeds from the sale of components for game consoles could not fully offset the drop in sales of gaming -Graphics cards. Cheaper accelerators with RDNA-3 architecture are to be presented in the current quarter.
A laconic statement on this at the quarterly reporting conference did Managing Director Lisa Su: “In the gaming graphics segment, sales of production GPUs have steadily increased. Radeon 6000 and Radeon 7000 on the Retail Channels page. In the first quarter, we saw good sales of older GPUs Radeon 7900 XTX and we are well on the way to expanding our GPU portfolio RDNA 3 by launching models Radeon 7000 mainstream this quarter”.
Recall that the range of AMD gaming solutions with RDNA 3 architecture so far consists of only two models presented in December last year – Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT. Priced at $999 and $849 respectively, they can’t claim to be massive. According to some reports, as part of the Computex 2023 trade show, which starts on May 28, AMD may unveil the Radeon RX 7700 and Radeon RX 7600 graphics cards, which will feature the latest RDNA 3 architecture at lower prices. They are said to be based on the 6nm Navi 33 GPU, which has a monolithic layout.
