Senior Vice President of Engineering David Wang said that the upcoming RX 7000 GPUs will deliver up to 50% more performance.
The company has been working to get its GPUs ready with support for the latest APIs across multiple operating systems. Some of the key features that AMD highlighted from RDNA 3:
- advanced chiplet
- Rearchitected computing unit
- New generation AMD Infinity Cache
- Improved ray tracing capability

THE Vulkan is an API created as a successor to the OpenGL and a response to DirectX 12, which dominated the API market until then. This line of APIs is focused on low-level instructions, with the objective of reducing CPU overhead, that is, making better use of all the processor cores, instead of throwing almost all the work on one of the cores.
Currently, the Vulkan is a good alternative if the GPU has low performance using the DirectX 12. We explain in detail here at Adrenaline what was the launch of Vulkan and how it changed the PC gaming market, check out the full article below.
