Multiple AMD Radeon RX 7000 and Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 cards joined by RTX 30 Super series in AFOX EEC filings
Lots of next-generation graphics cards have been spotted in EEC records (via @harukaze5719) that include many of the expected SKUs that should make up the incoming Radeon RX 7000 series from AMD and the Lovelace-based GeForce RTX 40 range from Nvidia. However, along with the familiar names of RX 7800 XT and RTX 4060 Ti, there are some surprises to be found, including a whole lineup of RTX 30 Super series boards. However, it’s important to point out that these filings have been made by the graphics card manufacturer AFOX likely to cover all naming trademark bases – it doesn’t necessarily mean these units will issue from either Team Red or Team Green HQs anytime soon.
Starting with AMD’s Radeon series, the following boards are included in the filings: Radeon RX 7900 XT, Radeon RX 7900, Radeon RX 7800 XT, Radeon RX 7800, Radeon RX 7700 XT, Radeon RX 7700, Radeon RX 7600 XT, Radeon RX 7600, Radeon RX 7500 XT, and Radeon RX 7500. There are a couple of anomalies to pick out, especially in comparison to the previous Radeon RX 6000 series, although again this does not indicate that AFOX has let the cat out of the bag in terms of unexpected SKUs. So, there is the aforementioned non-XT variant of the RX 7900 XT and there’s also mention of an RX 7500 (“Big Navi” has an RX 6500 XT but no RX 6500 in its lineup).
Things get even stranger in the GeForce-related record: GeForce RTX 3090 Super, GeForce RTX 3080 Super, GeForce RTX 3070 Super, GeForce RTX 3060 Super, GeForce RTX 4090, GeForce RTX 4080, GeForce RTX 4070, GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, GeForce RTX 4090 (second mention), GeForce RTX 4080 (second mention), GeForce RTX 4080 Ti, GeForce RTX 4090 Ti, GeForce RTX 4060, GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, GeForce RTX 4050, and GeForce RTX 4050 Ti. There’s no mention of the recently rumored potential Titan board, and there’s space for a Ti-boosted variant of the RTX 4050 here. It does seem a little late in the day for Nvidia to start producing Super variants of its RTX 30 series cards, but this is the same company that recently released the GeForce GTX 1630 three years after the GeForce 16 series was launched.
