A busy back to school season for CPU and GPU enthusiasts
According to Greymon55, AMD is rumored to launch its Radeon 7000 series as soon as late October.
The date is not set in stone, but the information which came from Greymon55’s “a reliable source” suggests Radeon 7000 cards based on RDNA3 architecture should appear between late October to mid-November. A bit sooner, AMD will be unveiling its Ryzen 7000 CPU series based on Zen4 architecture. Therefore, within 2 months time, AMD will shift its entire desktop platform to next-gen hardware.

Should rumors be considered, the deployment of AMD RDNA3 architecture should start with the flagship Navi 31 GPU for Radeon 7900 series, then followed by Navi 33 and Navi 32.
AMD competitors will not let AMD steal all the attention though. Intel will probably be the first to release its highly anticipated Arc desktop graphics cards globally, except no one really knows when. Officially it’s late summer, so just weeks before AMD/NVIDIA switch to even faster GPU architecture. Furthermore, Intel will be launching its 13th Gen Core desktop CPU series codenamed Raptor Lake-S, an updated Intel 7 architecture with increased total CPU core count to 24.
And speaking of NVIDIA, the company is now expected to launch its GeForce RTX 40 series codenamed “Ada Lovelace” starting this September or October. There is still a question whether board partners manage to sell the excess of their RTX 30 inventory before new series deploy. This may affect NVIDIA’s decision either to push back or bring forward the release of Ada GPUs.
