While AMD’s Computex 2021 keynote may have shed some light on its mobile Radeon GPU endeavours, FSR, and new 3D chiplet technology, the brand did not release any new information about its product roadmap. That said, there are rumours that AMD is planning on releasing its Zen 4 CPU and RDNA3 GPU architectures around the same time next year.
The rumour comes by way of a tweet from vegeta (@Broly_X1), who is predicting that AMD’s Zen 3 and RDNA3 architectures will be launching sometime during the fourth quarter of 2022. If the name sounds familiar, it is because this isn’t the first time vegeta has appeared; back in May, they leaked images of AMD’s alleged Radeon RX 6600XT graphics card, along with some of its supposed specifications.
RDNA3 and ZEN4 will be launched around the same time.
RDNA3 will tape out later this year.

In regards to RDNA3, vegeta says that the new GPU process is expected to be taped out sometime later this year and even speculates that the top-tier variant of the upcoming GPU could be called Navi 33, although that seems unlikely. For those who have been following AMD’s roadmap closely, the brand has consistently used a different name for each successive GPU, with each one being picked from existing constellations, starting with Polaris back in 2014.
In addition, vegeta also predicted that AMD will be announcing a Zen 3 XT refresh this year, although an exact date was not given.
