While PC games become more and more demanding with the hardware part, it’s obvious that there seems to be no other option but to build more powerful GPUs. Video cards likely represent the most important component of computers capable of running high-end gaming, and AMD is one of the companies that learned that lesson very well. There’s no wonder why the Santa Clara-based company recently announced the new Radeon RX 7900 XTX, meaning a next-gen desktop graphics card, according to GSMArena.
We’re obviously talking about a flagship GPU when it comes to the new AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX. The ‘little sibling’ known as RX 7900 XT was also revealed by AMD on the same day. Both GPU’s are high-end and expected to make top gaming more accessible for those who are into such content.
Based on the new RDNA 3 architecture
The new GPU’s from AMD are based on the new RDNA 3 architecture, and that’s far from being the only remarkable aspect of the new beauties. The new GPU’s are also the first to have a chiplet-based design.
The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX is packed with 24GB GDDR6 384-bit memory and 96MB Infinity Cache, while it also has 96 compute units and a 2.3GHz game clock, just to say the least. As you’ve probably already guessed, the new graphics card has enough power to run smoothly just about any game you may throw at it as long as it’s accompanied by a strong CPU and enough RAM memory.
Frank Azor, who is Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions & Marketing at AMD, brings the long-awaited answer for PCWorld, and as VideoCardz.com quotes:
“[Radeon RX 7900 XTX] is designed to go against 4080 and we don’t have benchmarks numbers on 4080. That’s the primary reason why you didnt see any NVIDIA compares. […] $999 card is not a 4090 competitor, which costs 60% more, this is a 4080 competitor.”
As for the 7900 XT, the specs are also pretty impressive. This GPU is capable of 20GB of GDDR6 320-bit memory while also reaching 80MB of Infinity Cache and a 2.0GHz game clock. Surely the “big brother” 7900 XTX is more capable, but the 7900 XT would also be enough for most of those who are passionate about gaming.
If you’re willing to buy the new AMD RX 7900 XTX from the UK, you can grab it from major retailers at prices starting at £899. You can get it from retailers such as Amazon UK, Ebuyer, Novatech, etc. If you live in the US, you should be able to get the new flagship GPU for prices starting at $899 from retailers such as Amazon US, Best Buy, B&H Photo, and more.
