AMD showed off a high-end RDNA 3 GPU at its Ryzen 7000 launch event. The unnamed graphics card was shown running The Lies of P, a newly-announced game at 4K with maximum settings. Unfortunately, AMD didn't specify a launch date for the Radeon RX 7000 series and said it would come later this year.

As expected, AMD's Zen 4 launch event was all about the Ryzen 7000 series of processors. The company did, however, give eager gamers a sneak peek into what its graphics card division has lined up. AMD CEO Dr Lisa Su showed off what looks like a high-end AMD Radeon graphics card, presumably the Radeon RX 7900 XT, complete with a black aesthetic, three fans and a beefy looking cooler.

The mystery AMD graphics card was also shown running an upcoming title, The Lies of P. While the exact FPS count was hidden, the game was supposedly running at 4K with all settings cranked up high. AMD says that RDNA 3 will supposedly offer up to a 50% performance uplift over RDNA 2. Much like its processors, AMD's graphics cards have been well hidden, so it is hard to verify those claims now.

Unfortunately, RDNA 3 still does not have an official release date, but it will certainly break cover in the coming weeks, ideally, around Nvidia's Ada Lovelace reveal. The AD102 GPU powering high-end SKUs such as the GeForce RTX 4090 looks to be quite the powerhouse, and it'll be interesting to see how the chipset-based Navi31 holds up against it.
