AMD Already Working on Big Navi ‘Navi 21’ GPU’s Successors, Navi 31 (RDNA 3) & Navi 41 (RDNA 4) – Next-Gen Gaming GPUs For Enthusiast-Class Radeon RX Graphics Cards
We have yet to see some conclusive information on AMD’s Big Navi (RDNA 2) GPU for upcoming Radeon RX enthusiast graphics cards, however, well-known leaker, Komachi, has reported that AMD has already started initial development of its next-gen, enthusiast-class GPUs, the RDNA 3 based Navi 31 and the RDNA 4 based Navi 41.
MD Navi 21 ‘RDNA 2’ Big Navi GPU Successors Allegedly Already In The Works, Include RDNA 3 Based Navi 31 and The RDNA 4 Based Navi 41 For enthusiast-class Radeon RX Graphics Cards
AMD has stated that its Big Navi (RDNA 2) GPU codenamed Navi 21 is going to bring the same level of disruption in the 4K gaming segment as its Zen architecture brought to the CPU segment. AMD’s plans are to unveil the Big Navi GPU before any other RDNA 2 product, this includes both next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft. The Big Navi GPU will be the flagship carrier of the RDNA 2 line and will set the bar for all next-generation GPUs.
Now in a series of tweets by Komachi, it seems like AMD is already well-underway in designing its next-generation successors to the Big Navi (Navi 21) GPU. Komachi tweets that there are two chips that are being planned. First is the Navi 31 GPU which was reported in another leak very recently while the second chip is a GPU which is years away from now but is first referenced by Komachi in his new tweet.
4. NV3X GCD/MCD means probably Graphics Complex Die/Memory Complex Die of Navi 3X (Navi 31).
5. Mero is custom, confirmed.
6. Navi 2X Family has Navi 24 (like the MI200, it hasn’t been taped out yet).
7. There is Navi 41.

The tweet refers to both the Navi 31 and Navi 41 GPU and also points out a design choice that has recently been ignited in the rumor mill. So let’s talk about the two next-generation RDNA Navi GPU variants and try to find out what does the future hold for AMD’s next-generation Radeon graphics cards.
AMD Navi 31 (RDNA 3) GPU
The first next-generation GPU mentioned in the tweet is AMD Navi 31. This GPU is allegedly part of the RDNA 3 lineup of Navi 3X GPUs. The AMD RDNA 3 Navi 3X GPU lineup is expected to launch in 2022 and recent rumors have highlighted that this GPU generation would be the first from AMD to utilize a chiplet based architecture, similar to Zen 2 CPUs. The AMD RDNA 3 Navi 31 GPU would also succeed the RDNA 2 based Navi 21 GPU.
