In an interview at Gamescom 2023 with IGN, AMD SVP Scott Herkelman stated that with the official launch of the Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT, AMD has now launched the complete planned portfolio for RDNA3. This came from a question regarding if there are additional RX 7000 models to which Herkelman replies:
“Well, the RDNA3 portfolio is now complete. Of all products that we have planned to launch, that is, this is the last few products that we will launch. We may have some different versions, but they are not a new ASIC…It’s been a journey, it’s been about a year since we launched the very first RDNA 3 and now we are a year later finishing up the series. We should be done, we are done and we are excited. And now I think we have a broad spectrum covered for people who want RDNA 3 up and down the price tag.”
His statement appears to indicate that AMD is concluding the RDNA3 family following the scheduled launch of their Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT cards, based on Navi32 at September 6. These launches will form the “complete” RDNA3 family of GPUs with only six SKUs for the desktop market, though it’s worth noting that Herkelman didn’t touch upon the potential of mobile GPUs.
This is somewhat surprising considering leaks revealing non-XT Radeon RX 7800 and 7700 GPUs have recently emerged. Moreover, rumors have circulated about the development of a budget-friendly RX 7500 model. Herkelman did hint at the possibility of updated versions coming later, similar to the mid-generation upgrades seen with existing RDNA 2 ASICs (for instance, RX 6700 XT transitioning to RX 6750 XT). AMD might lean on its previous generation Radeon technology to address gaps left by RDNA 3. There are indications of an upcoming RX 6750 GRE graphics card (the non-XT variant of RX 6700) in the works but this is as official as we have it.
