MADRID, Nov. 4 (Portaltic/EP) –
amd presented this Thursday its new Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT graphics cards, the first graphics processing units (GPU) for video games based on the architecture High performance RDNA 3.
both premiere an AMD chiplet design and offer a host of new and improved features that empower and drive higher resolution 4K gaming on the most demanding titles.
AMD Radeon graphics card RX7900XTX delivers up to 1.7x the native 4K performance of the Radeon RX 6950 XT graphics card in high-performance titles, while Radeon RX7900XT offers performance up to 1.5x higher than Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card in these video games.
Both Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT feature AMD RDNA 3 architecture, which offers up to 54 percent more performance and power efficiency than the previous one, AMD RDNA 2, as indicated by the company in a statement.
In addition, this architecture offers up to 96 new unified compute unitssecond-generation AMD Infinity Cache technology, and up to 24GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory, running at 20Gbps on up to a 384-bit memory interface.
Furthermore, AMD’s new GPUs are the only high-end GPUs in the industry to support Display Port 2.1 technology with UHBR 13.5, enabling 4K (up to 480 Hz) or 8K (up to 165 Hz) gaming at high resolution on displays. last generation.
AMD has also indicated the Radeon RX series has its new AMD Radiance Display engine, which provides 12-bit color per channel for up to 68 billion colors and displays with higher refresh rates, compared to AMD RDNA 2 architecture. It also includes support for DisplayPort 2.1 and HDMI 2.1a.
Thus, for games that demand a high refresh rate, DisplayPort 2.1 provides higher display bandwidth compared to DisplayPort 1.4 10 and supports refresh rates up to 900Hz, 480Hz, and 165Hz. for 1440p, 4K and 8K displaysrespectively.
Finally, thanks to the Dual Media Engine, the new GPUs support simultaneous encode or decode streams of up to 8K60 for HEVC and AV1 11 encoding, offering a Engine frequency rate up to 1.8 times higher than AMD RDNA 2 architecture.
The technology company has indicated that the AMD Radeon RX 7900 Series graphics cards will be available on its website starting December 13. Then, it will reach the rest of the distributors.
Initially, the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX has a starting price of $999 (1,022 euros at the current exchange rate), while the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT can be purchased for $899 (920 euros, approximately).
SOFTWARE UPDATES AND AMD ADVANTAGE
Alongside its new graphics cards, AMD has announced several updates to its software suite, including the next iteration of the popular time-scaling technology. FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR), FSR 2.2.
According to the brand, it is expected to be available in Forza Horizon 5 on November 8, 2022. In addition, it will be available soon for video game developers at GPUOpen.com.
On the other hand, AMD has also announced that it plans to release FSR 3 with AMD Fluid Motion Frames technology in 2023 and that it expects it to offer up to 3 times more FPS compared to AMD FSR 2 in select games.
AMD has also announced the AMD Advantage for desktops, which brings the AMD Advantage framework to PCs, merging high-end AMD Ryzen 7950x processors and AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards with AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition and AMD intelligent technologies to deliver the ultimate platform for gamers and creators.
That way, AMD Advantage Certified Desktops will feature AMD Smart Technologies that amplify performanceincluding technology AMD Smart Access Memory Y AMD Smart Access Video.
