No surprises between the two amd has already opened one of the bad news that we will find with its graphics RadeonRX7000and it is that to increase performance it is a question an increase in energy consumption. At the moment of truth, it’s nothing new, but at least the company is already leading the way in standardizing that next-gen high-performance hardware. slightly increase the price of the electricity bill.
Of course, although the company indicates that the slowdown in manufacturing processes is one of the causes of the increase in energy consumption, at least it takes off, indicating that if they had to increase the consumption of energy to apply noticeable performance improvements, your opponent have than to raise them even higher to combat them, and it’s a clear nod to NVIDIA, which will be weighed down by a monolithic design versus AMD’s multi-chip.
“The demand for performance in gaming and computing is accelerating, and at the same time the underlying process technology is slowing dramatically, along with the rate of improvement. So power levels will continue.” have a multi-year roadmap of very significant efficiency improvements to offset this curve, but the trend is there,” said Sam Naffziger, senior vice president, Corporate Fellow and Product Technology Architect, AMD.
“Performance is the most important thing, but even though our designs are more energy efficient, that doesn’t mean power levels won’t be increased if the competition does the same. It’s just that they will have to increase much more than us.” “.
AMD Radeon RX 7000: Gains in efficiency, but also in consumption
These graphics will arrive under the architecture RDNA3, which promises 50% more performance per watt consumed than the current RDNA2 architecture. Even so, the company will need to squeeze more silicon, and therefore increase power consumption, in order to deliver significant performance improvements over the current generation of GPUs.
Unfortunately, unlike NVIDIA, we don’t currently know the power consumption of AMD GPUs, but at least we know that the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT would be the first GPU with PCI Express 5.0 interfacealthough there are rumors that these GPUs may not arrive with the new 16-pin PCIe 5.0 connector capable of delivering up to 600W of power, which is supposed to use 8-pin PCIe connectors.
