AMD’s RDNA 3 graphics card could go on sale in the first week of December if the latest in the rumor mill runs out of money.
This one comes from regular contributor to the GPU leak on Twitter, Greymon55, who believes the original on-sale date has been pushed back by about a week, meaning the next-gen RX 7000 graphics cards will release between December 1st and December 5th. .
As for the cause of the alleged delay, a Twitter resident asked if there could be issues with the power connector (and adapter), to which Greymon responded with the assurance that “there are no hardware issues involved”, thankfully.
The power adapter situation has been an area where some people have been paranoid since Nvidia’s RTX 4090 has been involved in reported incidents of cable melting (possibly due to the adapter not being properly seated in the graphics card port).
However, there’s no need to worry that AMD has followed the same path as Nvidia for its flagship RDNA 3 adapter, as Team Red’s Scott Herkelman has already confirmed that the company won’t. We still don’t know what your solution will be, you see, in front of the connector; time will tell. (Presumably a 3 x 8-pin configuration for the flagship, or that seems more likely).
Review: Rumors Line Up Around RDNA 3 Hitting Shelves in December
Of course, take all of this with the usual dose of spice that should be applied to anything that comes out of the rumor mill of ever-heavy hardware.
What’s interesting here, though, is that we’ve already heard that the on-sale date will be December from another source of leaks. That would be Enthusiastic Citizen, who previously claimed that RDNA 3 GPUs would be released in the second half of December – so Greymon’s sources are at least indicating things should happen sooner than that (at least a week and a half earlier, though). as a matter of fact).
Anyway, it looks like we’ll wait until December before we can buy an RX 7000 graphics card (the RX 7900 XT and 7800 XT are expected to be the first products to be released). Remember, that’s the shelf date as opposed to the initial release, with the latest reveal coming very soon – on November 3rd, in fact.
We’ll at least know more about what the RDNA 3 is packing next week, and we can’t wait to find out just how competitive the range is becoming compared to Nvidia’s RTX 4090 (and RTX 4080 for that matter, though the latter is yet to be announced). Did not leave). Some recent talk has fueled the idea that the RX 7000 GPUs will be faster than expected (compared to previous performance rumors).
