The AMD Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards and their RDNA 3 architecture will be officially announced on November 3. This was just confirmed on Twitter, coinciding with the announcement of the NVIDIA RTX 4090 and RTX 4080.
AMD Radeon RX 7000 with RDNA 3 to be unveiled on Nov. 3
Scott Herkelman, general manager and head of AMD Radeon, made the official announcement on Twitter. The AMD executive tweeted this afternoon, just hours before NVIDIA’s launch, that November 3 is the date for the AMD Radeon RX 7000 launch event.

The company already reminded us when it unveiled the Ryzen 7000 that these graphics cards are coming soon, and we know that RDNA 3 will have a performance/watt improvement of at least 50%. Not to mention the chiplet design that will be found in all upper mid-range and high-end models, as well as all the architectural improvements that should boost their performance.
What really interests us about these new graphics cards is their price. NVIDIA has once again taken a pretty big step forward with Ada Lovelace. The new DLSS 3 and other features of the architecture are incredibly promising and we could see NVIDIA take the lead in performance, at least as far as ray tracing is concerned.
If this is the case, which is pure speculation on our part, AMD would have a role in introducing reasonable pricing. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 starts at over $1,000, and if AMD can launch a comparable (or even better) graphics card at a significantly lower price, they will likely be in the market.
However, the question is whether this is of interest or not. Another possibility is that AMD Radeon RX 7000, like NVIDIA, will be offered at a higher price to take advantage of the growing popularity of these GPUs, which are becoming more and more popular among users.
In our view, AMD should be able to combine improved performance and a better match with NVIDIA with price competitiveness. The graphics card market has seen troubling price increases for years.
