AMD Radeon RX 8000 Series GPUs: Potential Launch in 2025

AMD has had a decent presence in the GPU industry for a while now. Their graphics cards are known for their excellent price-to-performance ratio.

The latest launch in this industry from the company is their Radeon RX 7600 XT, which came out back in January this year. A few months later, we heard some plans from AMD for the next generation of GPUs.

Leaker Reveals AMD Radeon RX 8000 Series Expected Launch Dates

In a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), a leaker stated that AMD is planning to unveil its Radeon RX 8000 series GPUs in 2025. This will happen throughout the year. The higher-end Navi 48 (or N48) graphics cards may be seen at CES 2025.

This event is going to take place in Las Vegas from the 7th of January to the 10th. As for the lower-end Navi 44 (or N44) graphics cards, we may see them in Q2 of 2025. While things are not official yet, this may happen at Computex 2025, which will take place in Taipei from the 20th of May to the 23rd.

Details of the AMD Radeon RX 8000 Series

As for the particulars of AMD’s next-generation graphics cards, there is not much to know yet. The entry-level Navi 44 GPUs will be the successors to the N33 ones (Radeon RX 7600 series, for example).

The Navi 48 GPUs, on the other hand, will offer similar performance to the Navi 31 GPUs. These include the likes of the Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX. There will, of course, be upgrades in some areas, like power efficiency and ray tracing.

We can expect competitive prices as well, considering that AMD will have to compete with NVIDIA’s offerings. All of the graphics cards in the Radeon RX 8000 series will use RDNA 4 graphics architecture.

In another post, the same leaker is seemingly hinting that the VRAM of the Navi 44 GPUs is going to be 8GB. Either that or at least it will start from 8GB. This is in reply to a post stating that 8GB VRAM is too low for today’s standards, which is mostly true.

Considering that these graphics cards will not be available any time before 2025, it would be interesting to see how AMD makes this offering seem appealing to the audience. When talking about memory, it is highly likely that AMD will go with GDDR7 memory. GDDR7 memory was unveiled at the Computex 2024 event by Micron Technology Inc.

More things will hopefully start to clear up as we head closer to the official announcement. Until then, this is all we know about the Radeon RX 8000 series graphics cards by AMD.
