AMD has confirmed its next-generation RDNA 4 “Radeon RX 8000” gaming GPUs and CDNA 3 “Instinct MI300” data center APUs in its latest roadmap.

While AMD has revealed the first details of its next-gen RDNA 3 GPUs, they also revealed the generation of gaming GPUs that comes after that, and surprise surprise, it’s called RDNA 4.

AMD RDNA 4 gaming GPUs are coming by 2024

The new Navi 4x range is expected to launch in 2024 and will be based on an advanced process node. For its line of processors, AMD has announced both 4nm and 3nm, so it could be either of those nodes, but I’d place my bets on the 4nm node due to its maturity and the fact that it also fits the naming scheme which will do for some good marketing. AMD didn’t share any numbers, but at least we know that RDNA 4 is a real thing and comes after RDNA 3.

According to information rumors, it is reported that, as with RDNA 3, RDNA 4 MCM GPUs will include two different process nodes. The RDNA 4 architecture will power the Navi 4X line of GPUs and the flagship chip, the Navi 41, leaked a year ago. The information indicates that the RDNA 4 family powering the Radeon RX 8000 series graphics cards will feature a common architecture and not split it into two different architectures as expected with RDNA 3.

There are reports that AMD’s RDNA 3 graphics architecture will only be featured on the Navi 31, 32 and possibly the Navi 33 GPU, while the rest of the lineup will be based on an RDNA 2 refresh. Best Navi 31 and Navi 32 GPUs RDNA 3 will feature an MCM architecture and use a 5nm node for the GCD (Graphics Compute Die) and a 6nm node for the MCD (Multi-Cache/IO Die). The RDNA 2 refresh GPUs will be based on a 6nm process node and will be featured as a refresh in the new graphics family.

For RDNA 4, it looks like AMD is planning to offer the same graphics architecture across its entire Navi 4X line and no refreshes for older GPU architectures such as RDNA 3 or RDNA 2. AMD will use two different nodes for its MCM chips, such as the Navi 41, namely 5nm and 3nm. The GCD will be based on the 3nm process node while the MCD will be based on the 5nm node. Since RDNA 3 is scheduled to launch in late 2022, the RDNA 4 lineup will launch sometime in 2024 and will rival NVIDIA’s successor Ada Lovelace and Intel’s ARC Battle Mage or Celestial.

AMD CDNA 4 Next Generation Instinct MI300 APU by 2023

David Wang also announced the Compute GPU roadmap which includes Instinct-class chips for the AI ​​and Data Center segment. It can now be confirmed that AMD is indeed working on a multi-chip, multi-IP Instinct accelerator that not only includes the next generation of CDNA 3 cores, but is also equipped with the next generation Zen 4 processor cores. The Instinct MI300 GPU (technically an APU) is expected to launch by 2023.

Getting to the specifics, AMD will be using the 5nm process node for its Instinct MI300 “CANA 3” GPUs. The chip will be equipped with the next generation of Infinity Cache and will feature the 4th Generation Infinity Architecture which enables support for the CXL 3.0 ecosystem.

The Instinct MI300 accelerator will rock a unified memory APU architecture and new math formats, delivering a massive 5x performance increase per watt over CDNA 2. AMD also predicts more than 8x the AI ​​performance compared to CDNA 2-based Instinct MI250X accelerators.

The CDNA 3 GPU UMAA will connect the CPU and GPU to a unified HBM memory package, eliminating redundant memory copies while delivering low TCO.
