Tentative AMD Radeon RX 7000 series launch date revealed by new leak
With the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 series launch date delayed, fans may have to look at AMD for their next-generation GPU needs. Twitter leaker Greymon55 has learned from reliable sources that the AMD Radeon RX 7000 series of graphics cards based on the RDNA3 architecture will be launched sometime in October 2022. While an exact date isn't specified, it won't be later than November 0222, Greymon adds.
The information sits in line with a previous leak from YouTuber Moore's Law is Dead, who suggested that AMD was targetting a Q4 2022 launch for its graphics cards. However, Tom also added that AMD could opt for a staggered launch cycle, meaning that not all SKUs will hit shelves together. Greymon hasn't specified which model will be released first, and one can only hope it is the multi-die AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT. That being said, there are rumours that entry-level graphics cards powered by a Navi 33 GPU will be launched first.
Previous reports speculated that AMD was planning to launch its next generation of Ryzen 7000 processors at around the same time, paving way for the first-ever all-7900 PC featuring an AMD Ryzen 7 7900X and a Radeon RX 7900 XT. Alternatively, Team Red detractors can build a PC featuring an Intel Core i9-13900K Raptor Lake processor and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 at around the same time.
