In the second place of top cards from AMD Radeon, there is still some good performance to be had. Although it still has questionable value, so what GPU is equivalent to the RX 7900 XT?

The card is the lower-priced card of the selection, but even still it’s up there in price. So for lower-end choices, we have to wait a bit longer until they are released months after the generation launched.

GPU equivalent to the RX 7900 XT

Out of the new choice of cards the RX 7900 XT is comparable to the RTX 4070 Ti when it comes to price and performance. Whilst from older choices, it is more aligned with the RTX 3090 Ti.

Great quality and design as expected from a Suprim card

A much more expensive card, well over the MSRP

So if we look at TechSpot’s review, we can see the comparison between the card’s performances. There we can see the performance average across 16 games at three resolutions.

In 1080p the 4070 Ti is just 1% slower, with 1440p increasing to a 4% difference, and 4K at a 7% discrepancy. And the 7900 XT averaged higher lows as well, meaning a smoother experience overall.

Although where the AMD card will lose out is in the ray tracing performance. Which even with upscaling falls behind the performance of the 4070 Ti. So that may be a better choice for you depending on your usage.


Comparing the MSRP pricing of the cards, we can see what they can offer up for what it costs. The 4070 Ti comes with a $799 USD price tag, whilst the 7900 XT is at $$899 USD.

Which does mean it does come in with a better cost per frame from the Nvidia side. Although that still is a lot compared to previous generation offerings and so neither is really a great choice currently.
