According to the latest rumours, AMD’s next-generation RDNA 3 GPU featured in the Radeon RX 7000 can reach clock speeds of around 4 GHz.
AMD RDNA 3 “Radeon RX 7000” GPU could be the first chips to reach nearly 4 GHz clock speed, alleges rumor
The rumor comes in the form of a tweet published by the hardware leaker, HXL (@9550Pro) who quoted 3 GHz GPU speed for the upcoming RDNA 4 powered Radeon RX 7000 GPU. HXL says these new chips will be able to achieve “almost” 4 GHz clock speed and that even getting close to 4 GHz will be a major achievement for AMD.

If we go back a bit, AMD was the first to break 1 GHz Clock Speed Barrier Shown is the GCN-based Radeon RX 7970 GHz Edition graphics card with its 28nm Tahiti GPU. The company also delivered some insane clock speeds with its RDNA 2 lineup in the previous generation, Easily hitting clock speeds over 3.0 GHz, Now the company is going to use TSMC’s 5nm process node and it looks like the red team is clearly eyeing a new milestone, and that is the 4 GHz GPU frequency mark.
AMD has already demonstrated a massive increase in clock speeds for its Zen 4 cores by using TSMC’s 5nm process node. Given that AMD applies significant learnings from its Zen CPUs to other IP-like rDNA GPU lineups, there should be no doubt that we’re going to get some impressive speeds from the next-gen GPU lineup.
Sophisticated adaptive power management and next-gen Infinity Cache confirmed for rDNA 3
In addition to the 4GHz rumor, AMD’s SVP and Technology Architect, Sam Nafziger, has highlighted that the next-generation RDNA 3 GPU will be featured on the Radeon RX 7000 GPU and next-gen iGPU, featuring a range of new technologies will be offered, which includes a sophisticated adaptive power management technology to set workload-specific operating points, ensuring that the GPU only uses the power required for the workload. The GPU will also feature a next-generation AMD Infinity Cache offering higher-density, low-power cache and lower power requirements for graphics memory.
What will happen next?
Looking ahead, we are continuing our effort for more efficient gaming with the AMD RDNA 3 architecture. As the first AMD graphics architecture to take advantage of the 5nm process and our chiplet packaging technology, AMD rDNA 3 is on track to deliver an estimated >50 percent better performance per watt than the AMD rDNA 2 architecture – truly top-of- The-Line Gaming is bringing performance to gamers in cool, calm and energy conscious designs.
Contributing to this energy-conscious design, AMD RDNA 3 refines AMD RDNA 2 adaptive power management technology to set workload-specific operating points, ensuring that each component of the GPU uses only that power. which it requires for optimum performance. The new architecture also introduces a new generation of AMD Infinity Cache, which is projected to offer a high-density, low-power cache to reduce the power needs of graphics memory, AMD RDNA 3 and Radeon graphics efficiency. Helps to cement us as a true leader.
We’re thrilled with the improvements we’re making with AMD RDNA 3 and its predecessors, and believe that our architecture and advanced process technologies will deliver even more, while delivering unmatched performance across the stack, as we continue. Push for better gaming.
some key features of RDNA 3 GPU highlighted by AMD Will include:
- 5nm process node
- advanced chipotle packaging
- Re-architected Compute Unit
- optimized graphics pipeline
- Next-Gen AMD Infinity Cache
- Enhanced Ray Tracing Capabilities
- Sophisticated adaptive power management
- >50% Perf/Watt vs. RDNA 2
The AMD Radeon RX 7000 “rDNA 3” GPU lineup based on the Nav 3x GPU is expected to launch later this year, with the flagship Navi 31 launch first followed by the Navi 32 and Navi 33 GPUs.
