AMD’s prime RDNA 3 GPU is not regarded as a multi-chip GPU, a minimum of not from a graphics compute perspective. The expectation had been that AMD’s prime GPU of the following technology, its Navi 31 silicon, could be the first to carry the chiplet design of its newest Ryzen CPUs to its graphics playing cards.
The brand new hearsay that it isn’t is, truthfully, a little bit of a aid.
As AMD’s next-gen GPUs get nearer to their anticipated October launch date, and begin to ship out to its companions, we’ll get ever nearer to the leak hype occasion horizon. That place the place reality and fiction begin to merge and all of it simply turns into a frenzy of pretend numbers sprinkled with somewhat mild fact.
However that does not imply issues are in any approach settled proper now. The Twitter x YouTube leak equipment is at all times grinding away, and AMD’s flagship Navi 31 GPU has been given so many theoretical and fanciful specs that it is onerous to maintain monitor of the place the overall consensus lies proper now.
The place as soon as it was a 92 TFLOP beast with some 15,360 shaders, arrayed throughout a pair of graphics compute dies (GCDs), these specs have already been toned all the way down to 72 TFLOPs and 12,288 shaders. Now we’re listening to rumours that every one the noise a few twin graphics chiplet design have been inaccurate, and the fact of the multi-chip design is extra in regards to the floating cache than further compute chips.
The most recent video from Purple Gaming Tech, seemingly corroborated throughout the Twitter leakers, is suggesting that your complete 12,288 shader depend goes to be housed on a single 5nm GCD, with a complete of six 6nm multi-cache dies (MCDs) arrayed round it, or attainable on prime of it.
