Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics cards are expected to receive 200,000 RDNA 3 “Navi 31” GPUs from AMD in Q4 2022.
AMD To Challenge NVIDIA’s High-End Ada GPUs With Shipping Over 200,000 RDNA 3 “Navi 31′ GPUs for Radeon RX 7900 XTX | XT GPUs in Q4, It’s Claimed
The report, which Kyle Bennett made of (Ex-HardOCP & Ex-Intel), appears to have received confirmation from several sources. The Navi 31 GPU is the basis for AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards. While the Navi 31 chip on each graphics card has a slightly different SKU, it is the same chip, albeit designed differently.
According to Kyle, AMD plans to ship about 200,000 Navi 31 GPUs in total this quarter, which is much larger than what NVIDIA has distributed for its Ada Lovelace GPUs so far. Given that there reportedly are more than 30,000 reference cards available on release day, it is probable that the remaining GPUs will be distributed to AIB partners, who will likely release a sizable number of custom cards beginning in the middle of December.
Contrarily, the contest had transported roughly 160,000 units up until the middle of November. 130,000 RTX 4090 (AD102) units and 30,000 RTX 4080 (AD103) units totaled that amount. The most significant thing we understand is that the RTX 4080 had a relatively small release supply than the RTX 4090 and that, notwithstanding this, the new 4080 did not clear off retail shelves. That number ought to have surpassed the 200,000 mark by this point.
It’s unknown how evenly the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT unit figures are distributed, but finding out the precise split percentage will be interesting. Thirty thousand units is unquestionably a good number for launch, and there ought to be sufficient stock for gamers. This aligns with previous findings that AMD’s RDNA 3 GPUs would initially have a higher supply than the NVIDIA RTX 40 series.
