AMD RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT: Consume And Cost Less Than RTX 4090 And 4080

The new AMD 7000 GPUs are official. The American company has launched its new line of cards Radeon architecture-based RDNA 3 with two models: RX 7900 XTX And RX 7900 XT. A direct challenge to the presentation of NVIDIA was held just over a month ago, with the launch of the NVIDIA RTX 4090 and of NVIDIA RTX 4080.

The performances are, in fact, of the highest level and so are the various technologies that accompany the hardware: an improvement for the performance in Raytracing, the new FSR 3 technology, and support for AV1 encoding have also been announced. Let’s go and see all the details on the Technical specifications the exit date and the price of each card.

The new architecture RDNA 3 promises great performance for gaming, not only at 4K resolution but even in 8K. The real novelty of this generation Ships 31 is represented by the internal structure of the cards: the 7900 XTX and the 7900 XT are the world’s first gaming GPU to use chiplet architecture consisting of a 5nm Graphics Compute Die and a 6nm Memory Cache Die.

This allows you to place up to 58 billion transistors and up to 24 GB of GDDR6 memory, with a bandwidth of up to 5.3 TB / s. The result is a power of ben 61 TFLOPS, but with a clear improvement in consumption: we are talking about a + 54% performance-per-watt compared to RDNA 2, which reached “only” 23 TFLOPS. Frequencies have also risen: up to 2.3 GHz in shader clock speed (+ 25% energy saving) and up to 2.5 GHz for the front-end clock speed (+ 15% frequencies).

On a technical level, the new chipset supports the technology Second generation Infinity Cachewhich leads to an improvement in bandwidth up to 2.7x more than RDNA 2. The optimizations do not end there: there are new dedicated AI accelerators that do a 2.7x more performance than the old generation, but above all the new generation ray accelerators with a + 50% performance per CU.

Also noteworthy is the new AMD Radiance Display engine which brings great news: support for DisplayPort 2.1 connectivity.

This means that we can enjoy a bandwidth of up to 54 Gbps, with a 12-bit profile (up to 68 billion colors) and very high refresh rates: it goes up to 165 Hz in 8Keven up to 480 Hz in 4K.

  • Series: Ships 31
  • Architecture: RDNA 3
  • Productive process: 5 nm GCD, 6 nm MCD
  • Transistor: 58 billion
  • Compute Units: 96
  • Clock: 2.3 GHz
  • Video memory: 24 GB GDDR6
  • Memory interface width: 384-bit
  • Bandwidth: 5.3 TB / s
  • Declared power: 61 TFLOPS
  • TDP: 355 Watts
  • Dimensions: 287 mm (2.5 slots)

AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX is an absolute top range in the new range of AMD GPUs and pushes the limits of the potential of RDNA 3. A board is similar in size to the previous 6950 XT, but with performance up to 1.7x more and much higher energy efficiency.

The most interesting values ​​to note in the data sheet are the 96 Compute Unitthe video memory from 24 GB GDDR6 and above all the TDP 355 Wattsmuch lower than that of the NVIDIA RTX 4090 (450W).

The power connector is a classic one double 8-pin port so you don’t need weird adapters in the box.

Price and Exit

The new cards AMD RX 7900 XTX And AMD RX 7900 XT will be available from December 13, 2022, worldwide. The prices are both under $ 1,000 at launch, which is not at all obvious before the presentation. Below you will find the costs for each card internationally.

  • AMD RX 7900 XTX: $ 999
  • AMD RX 7900 XT: $ 899

At the moment, possible prices for the Italian market could only be announced in the next few days. As per tradition, there will be several on-the-market custom versions produced by the major IT companies in the world, so there will be different configurations that can be purchased for each card.
