The gaming GPU market is expected to explode next year. Not only do we expect new products from AMD and NVIDIA, but we also expect the first discrete graphics products from Intel’s Arc brand. Next year, we may even see new desktop GPUs based on PowerVR IP.
It is possible that Intel or Innosilicon could strike a blow and completely disrupt the market, but both scenarios are based on wishful thinking. We believe that by this time next year, most people will still be using GeForces and Radeons. As a result, the latest Greymon55 leak has piqued our interest.
Greymon55 is an anonymous Twitter user who is known for his correct GPU leaks. If you are new to us, Greymon55 is an anonymous Twitter user who is known for his precise GPU leaks. He admits that he doesn’t have much to say about Intel, but he has kept up with the news from AMD and NVIDIA on several occasions. He refers to AMD’s next-gen Radeon chips by their code names: Navi 31, Navi 32, and Navi 33 this time.
The Radeon Navi 30 series parts will be the next generation of Radeon hardware, this time employing the RDNA3 architecture. Aside from assurances that RDNA3 is on the way, AMD has been quiet about it. Based on previous speculation, AMD will use a multi-chip module design for the “Radeon RX 7000” family of GPUs, similar to what it has done with its Zen-based CPUs.
The latest Greymon55 release is a combination of new information and guesswork from the leaker, as seen in the tweet above. If you’re a hardware nerd, you can probably decode the tweet on your own, but just in case, we’ve broken it down for you. Numbers 31, 32 and 33 show the GPU we are talking about, while “WGP” stands for “Workgroup Processors”, the core building element of the Navi architecture.
According to various sources, the top of the Navi 30, which is the Navi 31, has 15,360 ALU shaders. If that’s the case, and Greymon55 is correct in estimating 60 WGP, we can draw one of two conclusions: either 60 WGP is the figure for a single die in the multi-chip module, or RDNA 3 WGP each has 256 processors. shader (double that of the previous generation parts).
Greymon55’s tweet also contains new information on the memory capacity and clock speeds of upcoming cards. Greymon55 had previously predicted that the high-end Navi 31 card would have 32GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit bus, but that prediction has now been revised to “just” 16GB of RAM. While this may seem excessive, keep in mind that we are talking about a GPU that is almost three times more powerful than the Radeon RX 6900 XT, which also has 16GB of RAM.
In the Greymon55 universe, the Navi 32 will have 12GB of memory on a 192-bit bus and the Navi 33 will have 8GB on a 128-bit bus. Those numbers seem plausible to us, but various tweet responses appear to be skeptical. Previous leaks indicated that the Navi 33 will perform similarly to the existing Navi 21, and it’s easy to see why people might be skeptical of that claim given that the Navi 33 has “only” 4,096 shader processors and a memory bus of 128 bits.
Greymon55’s clock frequency estimates are perhaps the most surprising piece of information in this data. A 2.5 GHz clock speed for the Navi 31 would put it 200-250 MHz faster than the Radeon RX 6900 XT, while the Navi 32 clock frequency of more than 2.8 GHz would be the fastest shipping clock speed in a graphics processor … at least up to Navi 33 and its rumored almost 3 GHz arrives. If these figures are correct, the Radeon RX 7000 series will probably completely outperform the previous generation, as well as the competition.
