For the specifications, there is still a lot of change to be expected until the release of the card. But for now, there are some talking that can be added to our summary.

The 7800 XT is expected to be based upon the Navi 32 chip. Which will feature TSMCs 5 and 6nm process that will be using the RDNA 3 graphics architecture.

The die itself may contain 128 compute units. Along with 8,192 or 10,240 stream processors. 

Here we see some of the conflicts between sources on what the card holds in it.

For the VRAM the 7900 XT may contain 16 or 20 GB of GDDR6. Across a 256 or 320-bit bus. Which could possibly be clocked at 18 Gbps.

It is also said to be the first to feature PCIe Gen 5 interface. There is the latest final specs have been rumored as to what to expect from Navi 32 chip.

AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT price speculation

One of the last things to be confirmed about a release is the price of them. But we just look back at the previous releases as to what we may expect.

The current model types are still fairly new so there isn’t much to go back on. However, we look over the rest of the trends to come up with a prediction.

With the RX 6800 XT, it came out at a recommended price of $649 USD. So this will likely be the starting point of the following card.

So we expect to see the RX 7800 XT cost in the range of $650-$900 USD. As with the inflation and increases in pricing, we do expect a higher cost.

RX 7800 XT FAQs

How much will the 7800 XT cost?

We estimate the RX 7800 XT to cost in the range of $650-900 USD. Although this can change as there aren’t any rumors about what they may cost. Especially with the increase in power and prices everywhere else.

What is the RX 7800 XT equivalent to?

Comparing Radeon to Nvidia, it is likely the RX 7800 will be equivalent to the RTX 4080. Both are likely to be second-rate cards, but likely the more popular ones. As they will still have all the performance you need but at a lower cost.

When will the RX 7800 XT come out?

AMD launched RDNA 3 on the 3rd of December. But no 7800 XT came out during that time, so it is being reserved for a later date. We should expect to see it in the first half of 2023 possibly in March or April.
