The AMD Radeon 7000 RDNA 3 graphics card will have higher power consumption than the previous generation. This is due to increased efficiency. According to a recent interview with TomsHardware, AMD’s Senior VP Sam Naffziger said that the power efficiency of the RDNA 3 is 50% better than its predecessors.
The next-gen architecture will depend on AMD’s design preferences and the power requirements of the GPU. AMD is claiming that this new GPU will be 50% more efficient than its predecessors.
AMD has already confirmed that the new graphics card architecture will be used in the Radeon 7000 series. This ensures previous leaks and estimates. AMD claims that the RDNA 3 will deliver a 50% performance-per-watt boost compared to its predecessor. RDNA 2 and RDNA 3 are almost the same. Nonetheless, RDNA 2 has better power efficiency than RDNA 3.
The new Radeon 7000 RDNA 3 graphics card will use chiplets to reduce power consumption. It is unclear which types of chiplets AMD will use. While the company has not specified the exact number of chiplets, the company did state that the overall graphics pipeline will be optimized.
Some reports indicate that the company might also change fixed units. AMD has not provided additional details, but these hints are enough to make us believe that AMD will be able to achieve its goal.
The new generation of NVIDIA cards will also be able to increase power efficiency. The NVIDIA RTX 4090 is already rumored to consume as much as 600W, while the AMD Radeon 7000 RDNA 3 will be even more efficient. AMD is already pushing the boundaries when it comes to power efficiency, so it should be no surprise if the RDNA 3 graphics card has the upper hand.
