RX 7000 Specs leaked: Said to be up to 3x faster
AMD's next-gen Radeon RX-7000 cards will be unveiled very soon, but new leaks reveal more information on build and performance.
With its new generation Radeon RX cards, AMD is breaking new ground by relying on chiplet design. A graphics card is no longer just one chip as it currently is, but consists of several chips working together to provide significantly more performance overall.
YouTuber RedGamingTech gives a good impression of what the build and derived specs of next-gen AMD might look like in an up-to-date video, with the help of the latest leaks and information from their own sources.
7-chip top model
It focuses on the Navi 31 chip, the most powerful of the generation, which is intended to compete with the high-end models in Nivdia’s upcoming cards. As a result, the GPU is formed as follows:
- Two GCDs (Graphics Computing Patterns): These chips handle tasks like rasterization, ray tracing, and more
- Four MCDs (Multiple Cache Patterns): These are memory chips that AMD previously introduced as an infinite cache.
- An IC chip (Interlocked Controller): This is responsible for communication between the graphics card and the computer.
Not only RedGamingTech has this information, but also the well-known leaker Greymon55, who perhaps provided it on Twitter. However, it also seems to target the manufacturing process used for the chips:
two 5nm GCD
four 6nm MCD
one interconnected controller
7 Chiplets in total

Accordingly, GCD chips are manufactured using a 5 nanometer process, while MCD chips are based on a 6 nanometer process. In total, it also comes with seven chips.
You should always keep in mind that these are rumors and not confirmed information from AMD. But the leaks go even further. RedGamingTech sources probably also know how many shaders, memory and thus computing power the chipsets have. He summarized this in a table. Here’s the RX 7000 Specs Leaked:
|shader in general||15.360|
|clock speed||2.6 to 2.8Ghz gaming clock|
|MCD||4 MCDs each with 64 Mbytes of memory|
|GCD||2 GCDs each with 7,680 shaders|
|Infinite Cache||512 or 256 MB|
|memory configuration||256-Bit GDDR6|
|storage capacity||16 GB td>|
|Raster performance vs. RX 6900 XT||2.5x (cautiously estimated)|
|RX 6900 XT vs Raytracing||more than 3 times|
|FP32||More than 75 TFLOPS|
|power consumption||375 to 450 watts|
Sources don’t quite agree on raster performance compared to the RX 6900 XT. Here the value is somewhere between 2.5 times more power and 3 times more power. This is theoretical performance in TFLOPS that you won’t see as more one-to-one FPS in games compared to current models.
By the way, information about theoretical computing power is not entirely new. They only confirm previous rumors and leaks. How many frames per second can be achieved with this is another matter and can only be demonstrated by independent comparisons.
Entry-level cards with high-end performance
The weaker models of the upcoming AMD generation should be able to compete with the current high-end models.
The Navi 33 chip will likely be used for new low-end graphics cards. According to RechTechGamings sources, performance is on par with AMD’s current top model, the RX 6900 XT. Rumors have been saying this for a long time, too.
The weaker models are said to have 4,096 shaders, 128MB of Infinite Cache, and 23 TFLOPS of theoretical computing power. It is claimed that they need 225 to 250 watts of electricity for this. RedGamingTech sees prices for low-end cards as $400 to $500, with higher-end models costing $1,000 to $2,000 to purchase.
On top of that, we have bad news for those who are waiting for new generations. The crypto boom could once again mark an important step in EIA work.
Do you think the performance has tripled compared to its predecessor? What do you expect from the prices of AMD’s new generation? You can specify in the comment section.
