Earlier this month, AMD said that it would refresh its lineup of Radeon RX graphics cards for gamers this quarter, and apparently, the new products are set to be announced next week at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

"Please join the @AMDRadeon team at Gamescom next week for our next major product announcements," said Scott Herkelman, senior vice president and general manager graphics business unit at AMD, in an X post

Frank Azor, chief architect of gaming solutions and marketing at AMD, linked Herkelman's post and reaffirmed that the company has 'some news coming next week.'

Indeed, Gamescom is a good place to announce new products. The trade show traditionally attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors, making it one of the biggest gaming events in the world. The fair is aimed at the general public and industry professionals. The event is split between an Entertainment Area for the public, where fans can try out upcoming games, and a Business Area for trade visitors to communicate and conduct deals. AMD plans to hold its AMD Gaming Festival 2023 on Friday, August 25, at Hall 7, which starts at 12:00.

While AMD does not disclose what exactly it plans to announce at Gamescom, it is about time for AMD to fill a gap in its Radeon RX 7000-series product line that spans from the Radeon RX 7600 ($270) and goes all the way to the Radeon RX 7900 XT ($900). This void is currently being filled by the older Radeon RX 6000-series and the Radeon RX 7900 GRE ($650), which is hard to get. Essentially, AMD does not have a direct answer to NVIDIA's reasonably popular GeForce RTX 4070 at the moment.

It's speculated that AMD's next move is to unveil the Navi 32, a GPU from its RDNA 3-based lineup which would position itself between the existing Navi 31 and Navi 33 GPUs. AMD's Navi 32 is anticipated to be the foundation for the Radeon RX 7700 and Radeon RX 7800 series, which will compete against Nvidia's performance mainstream and higher-end GeForce RTX 40-series products.

    We shouldn't be waiting on sales for GPU's to be priced at a sensible level.

    Anything priced at $200 would be a card that renders new games at unplayable framerates.

    Okay, I agree, but the original post never said anything like that. Only that they wanted a $200~$100 option.
    In that pricing bracket, there are two cards. The RX 6500XT and RX 6400. Not even the already quite bad RTX 3050 is priced that low.
    Seeing how much of a wash this year is, I don't think it's worth buying an RX7500XT or RTX4050 at MSRP. You would be better off buying clearance RTX3000.

    Also, the 7900 XT is not the top end card. The 7900 XTX is.

    Stuka87, what that line means is they don't have any cards that fill the gap between the 7900xt and the 7600.

    Video card prices have gotten stupid expensive. I was browsing video card reviews from 15 years ago, and the top of the line 4870 was $299, with the barely slower 4850 at $199, the 4670 at $99, and the 4650 at $79. So the range of prices for gaming cards was $79 to $299 for the full range. NVidia was roughly competitive with their 9000 series.

    Now in 2023 the RX 7600 is about the same price as the top of the line used to be, and the top of the line for AMD is $900.

    (Granted there's been inflation, but that's only 42% officially, so the $299 card should be $425.)

    Haha sub-$200 and sub-$100. That's what Goodwill stores are for. Go grab an old Nvidia 9600GT.

    My true hope is a 7900 XTX 48GB "ML Edition." Yes, AMD technically has a pro market to segment, but for heavens sake, they have so little to lose on the ML front.

    I dont get why Intel hasn't done this already. I would have bought a cheap 32GB A770 without even blinking... maybe more than one.

    I can also see AMD introducing the V cache 7900 variant they passed om before.

    They don't let ROCm run on consumer Radeons (or in Windows) at the moment, so that would be a weird product for them to make.

    That won't happen for the reason you posted.

    It will hurt sales for the pro gpus
