AMD challenges Nvidia with Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics cards

The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT are here, and it might give Nvidia real reason to worry.

The RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT were announced at AMD’s Together We Advance_Gaming event in Las Vegas on Thursday, following Nvidia’s announcement of the RTX 4090 and upcoming RTX 4080, and Team Red’s partnership with Nvidia’s new graphics cards. The opening remarks of the battle.


Meanwhile, AMD’s new graphics cards will go on sale on December 13, 2022, starting at $999 (~£900/AU$1,560) for the RX 7900 XTX and $899 (~£800/AU$1,425) for the RX 7900 XT AUD). This is significantly lower than the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080, although third-party RX cards may be more expensive.

Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT specifications revealed

The Radeon RX 7900 XTX will come with 24GB GDDR6, while the RX 7900 XT will come with 20GB GDDR6. Additionally, both cards will support the latest DisplayPort 2.1 standard, which is a big advantage over Nvidia’s latest cards, which only support DisplayPort 1.4.

The RX 7900 XTX will have a gaming clock speed of 2.3GHz and 384-bit GDDR6 memory. It will have 96 compute units (CUs), as well as second-generation ray accelerators and AI accelerators. Meanwhile, the RX 7900 XT will feature a 2GHz gaming clock, 320-bit GDDR6 memory, and 84 CUs.

In terms of power consumption, the total motherboard power of the RX 7900 XTX is only 355W, while the RX 7900 XT only needs 300W. Both cards use two 8-pin power connectors and support the PCIe 4.0 interface standard.


No RX 7800 XT, yet

The RX 7800 XT or RX 7700 XT is missing from the announcement, but it will most likely arrive sometime early next year. Given the price of the RX 7900 XT, we’re definitely looking forward to the price level of the RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT.

Nvidia has been leading price increases over the last few generations, so we’re glad AMD is making things more budget friendly, which we think could be a major differentiator for years to come.

When we’ll see these cards is anyone’s guess, but with CES 2023 just around the corner, we don’t think it’s too long.
