AMD would like to present the upcoming Radeon RX7700 and RX7800 at the Gamescom trade fair on August 23. That’s what leaker Moore’s Law Is Dead says. The cards, which should be available in stores in September, are expected to have a Navi 32 GPU.
Moore’s Law Is Dead says in a video that AMD plans to announce the new Radeon cards during gamescom, a gaming trade fair that takes place in Cologne between August 23 and 27. The tickets can then be purchased in September, although the YouTuber is keeping a low profile. According to Moore’s Law Is Dead, it is not yet certain whether AMD will also release XT variants of the RX 7700 and 7800.
Specifications of the graphics card are still missing, but according to Moore’s Law Is Dead it is at least clear that the cards will have a Navi 32 GPU. Images have previously appeared of a Radeon RX 7800 XT with a Navi 32 GPU, a chip based on RDNA3 with 64MB Infinity Cache.
The RX 7800 would have 60 compute units with 16GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256bit bus. For the RX 7700, that number would be 48 or 54 CUs, with 12GB of memory and a 192bit memory bus. The current Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX have a Navi 31 GPU with 84 and 96 CUs. Further details about the map are still missing.
Along with the rumors, leaker All The Watts has alleged 3DMark benchmark scores for Time Spy from the RX7700 and the RX7800 brought outside. This shows that the cards receive a considerably higher score than the previous generation. The RX 6700 achieved a score of 11,223, the RX 7700 a score of 15,568. That is an improvement of almost 39 percent. The RX 6800 achieved a score of 16,477, the RX 7800 a score of 18,957. That’s an improvement of just over 15 percent.
