Recently, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4090, the flagship of the Ada Lovelace lineup, also got Vulkan 1.3 support so that means both GPU companies have their next-gen lineups ready for the latest APIs. The AMD RDNA 3 "Radeon RX 7000" GPUs have received Vulkan 1.3 API support in both Ubuntu 64-bit and Windows 10 64-bit operating systems.

AMD confirmed that its RDNA 3 GPUs will be coming later this year with a huge performance uplift. The company's Senior Vice President of Engineering, Radeon Technologies Group, David Wang, said that the next-gen GPUs for Radeon RX 7000 series will offer over 50% performance per watt uplift vs the existing RDNA 2 GPUs. As we've seen each generation, AMD's upcoming GPUs will be ready to support the latest and greatest of APIs on various operating systems. Some of the key features of the RDNA 3 GPUs highlighted by AMD will include:

  • 5nm Process Node
  • Advanced Chiplet Packaging
  • Rearchitected Compute Unit
  • Optimized Graphics Pipeline
  • Next-Gen AMD Infinity Cache
  • Enhanced Ray Tracing Capabilities
  • Refined Adaptive Power Management
  • >50% Perf/Watt vs RDNA 2

AMD will be unveiling its RDNA 3 GPU architecture and the Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards on the 3rd of November. They have a full Livestream planned which you can read more details about here.
