AMD Execution Thread [2024]

About the same price increase as between two 4060Ti versions.

The ASP matters most of course, but Nvidia hasn't officially changed the MSRP from $499 to $449 afaik, which apparently is what the market has determined is the price to get the 16GB 4060ti to sell at all. So we'll see if the 7600XT gets under $300 in a couple of months, right now it's comparing MSRP to retail which is a little unfair.

It's good that seeing a 16GB product enter the ~$300 market makes 16GB more 'normalized' in products under $500, but as for what it means for this specific product, it's pretty questionable. I'm sure there will be circumstances where that extra vram will come into play now and more likely in the future, but when you factor in that RT is basically a no-go with this class of card (especially Radeon), the demands on vram really start to lessen, especially with the resolutions this card will be playing at.
The prices are dropping, whether by AMD decision or its the AIBs and the market evening out itself:
700$ is a pretty decent price for the 7900XTX. I would say a drop to 600$ makes it an auto buy. The XT though, I doubt many would chose at either of those price points.

AMD doesn't want to implement a standard controlled by their competitor since it'll lead down to a rabbit hole full of compatibility hacks (as extensively documented in the project) and performance problems since it's a suboptimal abstraction for their hardware ...

They already have docker images for NAMD, OpenFOAM, and native support for LAMMPS. The only applications that they stood to gain any real compatibility with are photography tools but those absolutely have to be measured up against CPU performance ...

AMD is reportedly building its upcoming "Zen 5" and "Zen 5c" CPU Core Dies (CCDs) on two different foundry nodes, a report by Chinese publication UDN, claims. The Zen 5 CCD powering the upcoming Ryzen "Granite Ridge" desktop processors, "Fire Range" mobile processors, and EPYC "Turin" server processors, will be reportedly built on the 4 nm EUV foundry node, a slightly more advanced node than the current 5 nm EUV the company is building "Zen 4" CCDs on. The "Zen 5c" CCD, or the chiplet with purely "Zen 5c" cores in a high density configuration; on the other hand, will be built on an even more advanced 3 nm EUV foundry node, the report says. Both CCDs will go into mass production in Q2-2024, with product launches expected across the second half of the year.
