AMD RDNA 3 will soon be upon us now that it’s been over a year since AMD introduced its RDNA 2, or Big Navi, graphics architecture design with the Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards. The 6000-series successor is nearly due, going by AMD’s typical product cadence, but times have been anything but typical.

RDNA is the architecture and instruction set of AMD’s graphics processors. It includes everything from the design of the compute units and cache to the shaders and visual pipeline. AMD RDNA 3 will continue to build upon the strong showings the company has made with its recent graphics cards.
