AMD is reported to be shipping 200,000 RDNA 3″ Navi 31′ GPUs for the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT in Q4 2022.

AMD will reportedly ship 200,000 RDNA 3 ‘Navi 31’ GPUs for the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics cards in the fourth quarter of 2022.

AMD Challenges NVIDIA’s Top-End Ada GPUs With Record Shipments Of 200,000 Navi 31 In Q4 2022 For Radeon RX 7900 XTX And ​​RX 7900 XT Graphics Cards

The report comes from Kyle Bennett From (Ex HardOCP & Ex Intel) and seems to be confirmed by multiple sources. AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards are based on the RDNA 3-based Navi 31 GPU. Each graphics card has a slightly different SKU for the Navi 31 chip, but it’s essentially the same chip, albeit configured differently.

According to Kyle, the total number of Navi 31 GPUs that AMD plans to ship this quarter is about 200,000 units which is much more than what NVIDIA has shipped so far for its Ada Lovelace GPUs. It is reported that there will be more than 30,000 reference cards on shelves on launch day, so the rest of the GPUs will likely go to AIB partners who have a huge batch of custom cards ready to hit shelves starting in mid-December.

On the other hand, the competition has shipped around 160,000 units as of mid-November. That number is split between 130,000 RTX 4090 (AD102) and 30,000 RTX 4080 (AD103). That number should have crossed the 200,000 mark by now, but the most important thing we know is that the RTX 4080 had a smaller launch than the RTX 4090 and despite that, the new 4080 failed to clear retail shelves.

We don’t know if the unit numbers are split evenly between the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX or RX 7900 XT but it would certainly be interesting to know the actual split number. However, 30,000 units is definitely a good amount for a launch and there should be enough stock for players. This is in line with previous reports that stated that the initial supply of AMD RDNA 3 GPUs will be higher than the NVIDIA RTX 40 series.
