AMD’s enthusiast-class graphics card, the Radeon RX 7900 XT, was introduced on November 3, 2022. The card supports DirectX 12 Ultimate and is constructed using a 5 nm process based on the Navi 31 graphics processor in its Navi 31 XT form.

A big device, the Navi 31 graphics processor, has 58,000 million transistors and a die area of 308 mm². This guarantees that Radeon RX 7900 XT will be able to run all current games. Future video games will include hardware raytracing, variable-rate shading, and other features thanks to the DirectX 12 Ultimate capabilities.

Beginning on December 13, the Radeon RX 7900 graphics card will be available. The Radeon RX 7900 XT should retail for US$899 at launch, while the Radeon RX 7900 XTX should cost US$100 more. The RTX 4080, in contrast, will be available sooner but will cost US$1,199.

RX 7900 XTX specs

With additional benefits, including DisplayPort 2.1 compatibility and a USB Type-C port, AMD is promoting the Radeon RX 7900 series as offering greater value overall than the RTX 4080.

Presumably, AMD has blocked some shading units on the Radeon RX 7900 XT in order to attain the product’s target shader count, unlike the fully unlocked Radeon RX 7900 XTX, which uses the identical GPU but has all 6144 shaders activated.

It has 192 ROPs, 336 texture mapping units, and 5376 shading units. 84 acceleration cores for raytracing are also on the board. The Radeon RX 7900 XT and 20 GB of GDDR6 memory from AMD are connected via a 320-bit memory interface. The GPU runs at a frequency of 1500 MHz, which can be increased to 2400 MHz, and memory operates at a frequency of 2500 MHz.

The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT has two slots and uses two 8-pin power connectors, with a maximum power draw of 300 W. There are three display outputs: one each of HDMI 2.1a, DisplayPort 2.1, and USB Type-C. PCI-Express 4.0 x16 is used to link Radeon RX 7900 XT to the rest of the hardware. The card has a dual-slot cooling system and measures 267 mm by 135 mm by 50 mm. It cost 899 dollars when it was first released.
