Should be but it won't be. Well they will pull some bs marketing metric that no one cares about.

If this is when AMD move to chiplets in GPUs, I could actually see larger than normal performance ceiling rise on the high-end- but I wouldn't believe for a moment that performance in the midrange or perf/$ in general will go up by anything remotely close to 3x. If the top-end RX 7000 or whatever is somehow 2.5-3x as fast as 6900XT by virtue of chiplet scaling on top of IPC & clock gainz, it'll also be an even higher performance tier (7990?) and cost more accordingly. Feel free to quote the entirety of this post next year to see how I did lol.

Going by current msrp

6900 XT > $999

7990 XT > $2499

I'm thinking along those lines too

7800XT = 80CU (single chiplet) ~20% faster than 6900XT in raster, ~50% faster in RT, ~799$
7900XT = 120CU (dual chiplet) ~70% faster than 6900XT in raster, ~150% faster in RT, ~1199$-1499$
7990XT = 160CU (dual chiplet) ~100% faster than 6900XT in raster, ~200% faster in RT, ~1999$-2499$

disclaimer: all performance numbers are pulled out my arse, please no-one post these on WCCF claiming confirmed performance leak thanx

Eh, they have a different solution going. Basically the system only sees one GPU, which is the I/O die. The I/O die tells the chiplets what to do, and takes the info they handle and present it to the system. Essentially, it's just one big GPU even if it's hosted on multiple physical dies.

I don't know if they work like one big die or if they split up roles, like SFR back in the day. But however it'll work, it's a black box as far as the system is concerned.
Last paper I read from NVidia from like 2 years ago was they were working on how to lower the latency between the IO die and the chiplets to improve frame time issues. I have to assume that they all had similar issues and have been working on it all this time. 3 years seems like a reasonable timeframe to tackle this issue.

Makes it sound like AFR is back on the table...

geez I hope not... NV and AMD spent the entire 2010's insisting that "~this time~ AFR frame pacing, scaling, and compatibility is fixed!" and it never really was. I'm hoping for more like the arrangement on Ryzen 3000/5000 where the IO die holds the last-level cache and scheduler and treats the compute dies as a single pool of threads.

So far that's the only thing I've heard about RDNA chiplets. It'd be kinda funny if Nvidia and AMD come to completely different solutions using the same chiplet concept.

And you cant buy one


This x100. As more and more folks link their rig(s) to places like Nicehash,it will only get worse. We are at least 5 years away before some of these new announced Fabs are online and pumping out Wafers.

Crypto's are not going away this time, but instead are about to become the basis of the entire worlds financial system,and then some. Same way post cards,and record stores and dvd rental stores and kodak,et all went the way of the do do bird,so very very soon,will paper money,banks,Brinks armored cars.... and credit cards go away. Bretton Woods "2"/Agenda 2020 is about to turn it all on a dime,all part of the Great Reset. The most disruptive tech ever to be revealed is coming along with it,all on the Blockchain and all tied to a UN Controlled Chinese style Social Credit Score on steroids (Check the id2020 website/technology started by Bill Gates/WEF/DARPA,YES that Darpa.../BIS/ECB/IBM),rolled out during the Lockdowns so that the expected violent public protests cant be held,for "safety" reasons of course..... "Its just two weeks to flatten the curve".

Soon,your online behavior, will openly count towards IF you'll be allowed to buy/or even enter a lottery,for that RTX4060 or RX7900XT card. No,I suspect many will stay on whatever card they have now,as for a laundry list of new reasons many of,most have not thought of yet,it will make it much harder to obtain new tech like a video card,no matter the MSRP. Do your own research folks, Act accordingly.
