AMD Reportedly Prepping a 16K Core Radeon RX 6000 GPU to Fight the NVIDIA RTX 4090

In the world of tech, every company has its eyes on being the best in the competing arena, and they have put up everything to be at their best and compete with their rivals for that top spot. Similarly, in contending with NVIDIA’s RTX 4090, AMD is looking to keep a backup option if they fall short of their performance. In the wake of this, AMD is keeping an option in its RDNA 3 arsenal in case its Radeon RX 7900 XT falls short of competing with its arch-rival Nvidia in competition with Nvidia’s RTX 4090.

According to information and tech enthusiast, Greymon55, not to be clear whether the system is designed for gaming or professional users; a 16,384 core (8 shader engines) part based on the RDNA 3 architecture is there on AMD’s shelf. A thing to be considered is representing a completely different graphics core; this does not point towards the Navi 31 due. Monolithic GCD being a more probable set of events, it could be based on an MCM design with two GCDs. It is not known if it exists or not, but if it is there, regarding the memory base, we could see the same memory bus as in the RX 7900 XT; Infinity Cache (L3). There might also be a 32GB of GDDR6 memory, but nothing is known at this point.

The Radeon RX 7900 XT (Navi 31) will pack a single 5nm GCD comprising 12,288 shaders across 96 CUs and 48 WGPs. Coupled with the memory controllers distributed across the six MCDs, it will be 384MB of L3 “Infinity” Cache. First, of the RDNA family, the memory bus is expected to be an astounding 384-bit wide. The boost clocks should easily be able to catch up to 3GHz, giving the exact values as expected from the N5 process. By it, the TDP should also be leaping, although not as much as Lovelace. An approximate value can be 350W TGP for the RX 7900 XT.

There is not likely to be the possibility of AMD making up an entirely new GPU just for one high-end SKU. But you could look forward to being shared with the Radeon Pro lineup; it is just a possibility, but AMD can plan up to anything to keep up with Nvidia. The GPUs used for professional purposes can not possibly pack in too much compute performance, but as for gamers, 16K cores are exactly the required number. Looking at what is known, it is not sure if it will be on the market shortly but going more into it; it is not even sure if it exists outside the blueprints. It all can be a made-up scenario, but nothing is confined to such certainty that any confirmation isn’t here regarding it.
