Now that the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT launch is pretty close, we’re bringing you all the information we have on the top-tier forthcoming RDNA 3 GPU.

The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT is exciting because, like the Ryzen 7000 CPUs, it will be constructed using the company’s innovative 5nm technology. As a result, the first graphics cards that can fully utilize the new bandwidth standard, PCIe 5.0 x16, will be released.

The Radeon RX 7900 XT and the Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics cards are two new graphics cards from AMD. Only one letter separates them in their names, and their prices, $899 and $999, respectively, do not differ significantly either.

RX 7900 XT specs

The RX 7900 XT’s anticipated power has been vastly debated. The next GPU will include 20GB of GDDR6 VRAM, whilst the XT goes up to 24. According to rumors, the RX 7900 XT won’t be as quick or potent as Nvidia’s top-tier card. But at its price point, it doesn’t need to.

While we will have to wait till we have internally benchmarked and tested the graphics cards, what AMD has presented is very encouraging. The use of the new FSR 3, and AI supersampling to achieve the maximum frame rates at greater resolutions than are now feasible with the current generation appears to be the main focus.

You’ll be kicking yourself for not finding an RX 7900 XTX for MSRP at launch if you’re paying more than necessary for an RX 7900 XT. Expensive coolers and somewhat faster clocks will swiftly fill the difference of $100 between the two.

In a similar vein, AMD promotes the XTX as the greatest product under $1,000, but it is perfectly capable of selling for a higher four-digit asking price. That places it in the RTX 4080 range from Nvidia. And so it will be best to compare it to it.

And that time is soon to come, as the cards are set to come in mid-December.
