According to the latest reports, the AMD Radeon RX 7900XT would debut as the first consumer GPU all-new PCI-Express 5.0 interface. This information comes from AMD itself, and it is that according to the GFX11 architecture patches received for Linux, at least the company’s high-end chip, the Navi 31will arrive with the most modern interface on the market, while it is expected that Nvidia sticks to PCI-Express 4.0 interface in its next-gen gaming GPU despite the fact that its current data center GPU, the Nvidia H100, already offers next-gen interface support.

The PCI-Express 5.0 interface offers a bandwidth of 128 GB/s (64 GB/s in each direction), which is essentially double the 64 GB/s of the PCIe 4.0 interface. Obviously, for the gaming segment, the PCIe 4.0 interface is still more than enough, so if the price is not changed by using the next-gen interface, It’s a logical marketing stepsince the AMD Ryzen 7000 processors will give access to said interface on the new platform based on the AM5 socket, in addition to also making the leap to the use of DDR5 memory, for which it will add a large number of new features.

According to the latest rumours, the AMD Radeon RX 7900XT would finally come with 12288 stream processors at a Turbo frequency that will hover near the 3000MHz (could be 2995 MHz), which will give a performance of 73 TFLOPs front to the 92 TFLOPs initially assumed. The graphics chip would be accompanied by 24 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 256-bit interface and would be backed by an Infinity Cache memory which could be 256 or 512 MB.
