AMD Navi 33 GPU expected to have up to 80 CUs and 5120 stream processors


AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs have enough power to put them on par with Nvidia's cards, but the company is aiming to do more. There's no doubt that AMD has already become testing its new RDNA 3-based GPUs. What's interesting is that there are already some rumours on specs.

The source (@KittyYYuko) claims that AMD's Navi 33 will essentially be a Navi 21 GPU with a next-gen IP core. Allegedly, this means that we can expect mainstream RDNA 3 GPUs to have performance on par Navi 21 GPUs. If so, we can expect Navi 33-based GPUs to have 60 to 80 compute units for up to 5120 stream processors.

For your info, there are three Navi 21 GPUs - the Radeon RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6900 XT. These are high-end GPUs priced up to USD 999 (~RM4101), compared to the mainstream Radeon RX 6700 XT's USD 479 (~RM1967). In related news, it's also rumoured that the high-end next-gen Navi 33 GPUs would outperform Navi 21 GPUs by up to 3x times.

Of course, that's all just speculation, but PC gamers can expect to get more powerful hardware later this year. Having said that, do you actually plan to upgrade your PC using newer hardware or would you get last year's GPUs when they become cheaper?
