PSU producer, Seasonic, has up to date its wattage calculator to cowl AMD’s as-yet-unreleased Radeon RX 7000 GPUs. That in itself is not too attention-grabbing, as we all know they’re coming, even when the small print round them are a little bit missing. No less than formally. What’s attention-grabbing is that they do not seem to demand any extra wattage than the present fashions—nice information on your electrical energy invoice if true.
Three of AMD’s next-gen playing cards are listed at current: Radeon RX 7900 XT, 7800 XT, and 7700 XT. You may verify this your self by popping over to the Seasonic website (opens in new tab), deciding on AMD from the dropdown record underneath the GPU 1 entry, and setting the ‘gpu sequence’ to Radeon RX.

This was discovered by SkyJuice (opens in new tab) (by way of Videocardz (opens in new tab)), who linked to the Seasonic Wattage Calculator and highlighted that principally, you are taking a look at a 650W PSU for the 7700 XT and a 750W PSU for the opposite two playing cards.
Seasonic might simply be utilizing placeholder information that has been copied over from the prevailing RDNA 2 playing cards, however there’s additionally an opportunity that it’s not. AMD might nicely be aiming for its RDNA 3 GPUs to make use of the identical wattage as the present lineup.
This might give it a win over Nvidia, which is usually anticipated to extend its energy draw for its RTX 40-series playing cards. A small win, for positive, however as vitality costs enhance, it might work in AMD’s favour, particularly if it may well produce a efficiency uplift as anticipated.
In case you are questioning, no, Nvidia’s next-gen 4000-series GPUs haven’t made it onto the positioning but. Intel’s Arc Alechmist GPUs are additionally notable by their absence right here.
Their look within the database would not essentially imply that the playing cards will see a launch imminently both. RDNA 3 is anticipated to be launched concurrently Zen 4 in the last quarter of the year (opens in new tab), possibly squeaking into the top of September if some rumours are to be believed. That is nonetheless a number of months off even when we’re being optimistic.
Provided that timeframe, this in all probability is placeholder information. And which means we in all probability should not learn an excessive amount of into it. However simply think about if it is not, and we’re not about to see an enormous enhance in our electrical energy payments simply to maintain our machines updated. Hey, we are able to all dream.
