AMD's RX 7900 XT reportedly "at a minimum 40% better than an RX 6900 XT"

AMD's reportedly targeting a 60-80% performance boost.



Read more about AMD's RDNA 3 performance targets and strong RX 7900 XT performance targets.

I can't imagine we'll get these any time in the next 12 months. AMD and Nvidia have no need to release anything new at this time unless they can get more 5nm than 7nm from TSMC. Both companies have good architectures currently that are in high demand and will be for another year. I can imagine AMD will hold off on RDNA3 until the end of 2022.

It's possible that the easier manufacturing/better yields of chiplet based designs vs monolithic make a push for this new approach quite desirable with the manufacturing challenges facing the current monolithic models, if they can get more chips per wafer with a denser node, without taking a yield hit, or maybe even a yield improvement, due to the split up MCM design, could mean a notably stronger supply is possible

Just means the scalpers will sadly get more stock

But then why aren't there more 6700XT's? That's a high profit margin part that should be easy to manufacture and isn't great for most mining farms, yet it's unavailable everywhere.

The silicon shortage has hit everything and everyone. Mobile phones, TVs, Car equipment, GPU, CPU even you smart coffee machine. There is a serious global shortage. So I don't believe one bit that AMD have ramped up production to meet demands unless they make their own.

Ford in UK I believe has shut down car production because of lack of computer chips due to the shortage.

AMD could ramp up production provided TSMC has room. You have to book in advance and if you don't slots open up for production.

As for cars being in shortage, that's because according to Linus and his talks "off the record" with industry people car manufacturers canceled/lowered orders because of predicted low demand. But then they proceeded to offer (in the US) basically vehicles at cost with no interest. Which made demand go up. So it's their own fault.

Toyota escaped because they had this problem a decade ago and since then have stockpiled more than enough in case they ever lost production again. That's why they aren't really affected.

The shortage currently impacts GDDR memory too which I think puts a cap somewhat on the whole GPU market, high end/profit margin parts are still selling out so I guess they have business reasons not to just throw everything at the highly manufacturable low end parts

It's very probable UK car manufacturers also expected low demand, with the pandemic and Brexit, and have maybe been caught out a little too. It's hit more than just Ford here with Jaguar-Land Rover shut downs, Vauxhaul (Owned by Stellantis group, many models sold as Opel's on the continent) have even been making moves to potentially re-adopt analogue speedometers to get around the shortages in parts for the digital speedo's.
