AMD Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards will be announced on November 3. The RDNA 3-based Navi 31 and Navi 32 GPUs are slated to use a chiplet-based design, while Navi 33 will be based on a monolithic die.

With Nvidia's Ada Lovelace reveal mere hours away, AMD took the opportunity to steal some of Team Green's limelight. Scott Herkelman, AMD Radeon's GM took to Twitter to announce that the highly-anticipated Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards would be announced on November 3 at an unspecified time, which will probably be revealed later.

AMD's decision to wait till November to launch its next generation of graphics cards is interesting. Most high-end Ada Lovelace SKUs should be out and about by then, allowing AMD to make some last-minute changes in their offerings, especially in the pricing. Some last-minute hardware tweaks are also likely.

If recent leaks are accurate, the Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards might not be able to compete with Ada Lovelace, at least in raw performance. AMD's recent narrative around RDNA 3 has focused on power efficiency. Ada Lovelace is rumoured to be a massive power hog and will likely require a power supply upgrade in some instances.

RDNA 3, on the other hand, is expected to keep its TGP within limits, with some estimates stating that the Navi 31-powered Radeon RX 7900 XT will max out at 450 Watts while bringing a 50% performance uplift over RDNA 2. However, another report said that a mystery RDNA 3 graphics card breached the 4.0 GHz barrier. Exactly how AMD managed to pull it off within a 450 Watt window remains to be seen.
