AMD has confirmed the highest number of compute units for three RDNA 3 GPUs including the yet to be released Navi 32 and Navi 33 chips.

## AMD RDNA 3 GPU compute units confirmed: Navi 31 with 96, Navi 32 with 60, Navi 33 with 32

The number of computing units for the AMD RDNA 3 GPU lineup hasn’t been a mystery since the leak from Angstronomics but this leak comes directly from AMD in the form of an update to the ROCm software that was discovered by @tweet. The update mentions the peak core count for RDNA 3 chips which are as follows:

- Navi 31 GPU = 96 compute units
- Navi 32 GPU = 60 compute units
- Navi 33 GPU = 32 compute units

#### AMD Navi 31 “Plum Bonito” GPU Configuration

The AMD Navi 31 GPU, the flagship RDNA 3 chip, will power next-generation enthusiast cards like the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics card. Each WGP will have dual CU (computation units) but with double the SIMD32 clusters vs. only 2 in each CU within RDNA 2. The chip uses a combination of TSMC 5nm (GCD) and TSMC 6nm (MCD) process nodes.

**AMD Navi 31:**12288 cores, 384-bit bus, 96MB infinity cache, GPU 300mm2 @ 5nm**AMD Navi 21**: 5120 cores, 384-bit bus, 128MB infinity cache, GPU 520mm2 @ 7nm

The AMD Navi 31 GPU with RDNA 3 architecture is expected to offer a single GCD with 96 compute units, 48 WGPs, 12 SAs, and 6 SEs. This will give a total of 6144 SP or 12288 centers. This is a 2.4x increase in cores compared to the 5120 featured cores in the Navi 21 GPU.

The Navi 31 GPU will also carry 6 MCDs which will have an infinity cache of 16MB per die, and will also carry 64-bit (32-bit x 2) memory controllers that will provide the chip with a 384-bit bus interface. These chips, or MCDs, will be manufactured on TSMC’s 6nm process node measuring 37.5mm in diameter^{2} All.

#### AMD Navi 32 “Wheat Nas” GPU Configuration

The AMD Navi 32 GPU codenamed “Wheat Nas” is also one of two MCM GPUs in the RDNA 3 family. The GPU will have one GCD (Graphics Compute Die) and four MCD (Multi Die Cache). The GPU or GCD is said to measure 200mm^{2} While each MCD will keep the same size at 37.5mm^{2}.

**AMD Navi 32:**7680 cores, 256-bit bus, 64MB infinity cache, GPU 200mm2 @ 5nm**AMD Navi 22:**2560 cores, 192-bit vector, 96MB Infinity Cache, 335mm2 GPU Die @ 7nm

GCD will be equipped with 3 Shader Engines and each Shader Engine contains 6 Shader Arrays. The GPU will have a total of 30 WGP or 60 Compute Units for a total of 7680 cores. Each MCD must also have two memory interconnect links (32-bit). That’s a total of 8 32-bit memory controllers for a 256-bit bus interface.

#### AMD Navi 32 “Hotpink Bonefish” GPU Configuration

The AMD Navi 33 GPU codenamed “Hotpink Bonefish” will start the monolithic segment under the RDNA 3 family. The GPU will have a single die. The die is very similar to the flagship Navi 21 GPU and is expected to use a 6nm process node for manufacturing with a die size of 203mm^{2}.

**AMD Navi 33:**4096 Cores, 128-bit Bus, 32MB Infinity Cache, 335mm2 GPU Die @ 6nm**AMD Navi 23:**2048 Cores, 128-bit Bus, 32MB Infinity Cache, 237mm2 GPU Die @ 7nm

The Navi 33 GCD is expected to have two Shader Engines, and each Shader Engine has two Shader Arrays (2 per SE/4 in total). This rounds up to 16 WGP or 32 compute units for a total of 4096 cores which is higher than the Radeon RX 6800 “Navi 21 XL” GPU. The GPU will come packed with 32MB of Infinity Cache, which is the same size as the Navi 23 GPU, and across a 128-bit wide bus.

The first AMD RDNA 3 GPUs will be released in the form of the Navi 31-powered Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics card on December 13. We are likely to get Navi 32 and Navi 33 GPUs in the first half of 2023 with the announcement of Navi 32 navigation GPUs expected at CES 2023.
