The RX 7000 series from AMD is said to outperform the previous generation by a factor of 4.
The Radeon RX 6900 XT will probably not be AMD’s flagship for much longer.
The end of 2022 should be very exciting for PC gamers. With the RX 7000 series from AMD and the RTX 4000 generation from Nvidia, there are two generation changes in graphics cards. The two manufacturers are still keeping a low profile about specific performance data for their cards. However, the reliable leaker Greymon55 now claims to have learned that AMD is planning a significant performance boost for its GPU flagship.

92 TFLOPs with the RX 7900 XT?
So far it was assumed that the fastest AMD GPU Navi 31 has 15,360 shaders and works at 2.4 to 2.5 GHz. This would result in a computing power of 75 TFLOPS. However, in its latest tweet, which has been deleted, Greymon55 now gives a value of 92 TFLOPS. The top model of the new GPUs would thus offer around four times the computing power of the current flagship RX 6900 XT with 23 TFLOPS. It remains unclear why the Radeon RX 7900 XT should suddenly work even faster than previously assumed.
Clock of up to 3.0 GHz?
According to speculation on the Videocardz website, AMD could use a modified instruction set that provides higher performance even with the same number of shaders. However, if the performance increase was planned at short notice, this would probably only be possible via the GPU clock. In conversation would be about 3.0 GHz. However, it remains to be seen whether AMD actually achieves such a high clock rate. The manufacturer should also try to keep a large part of the performance data of its new GPU generation secret for as long as possible in order not to give the competitor Nvidia too much information.
