The Radeon RX 7900 Series Comes with Aggresive Pricing

Following the unveiling of the RTX 4080 and 4090 from NVIDIA, AMD responds those beastly GPUs with the Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX—with both featuring aggressive price tags that are lower than NVIDIA’s asking price. Both GPU are the first to use AMD’s RDNA 3 architecture, with CEO Dr. Lisa Su claiming that they offer as much as 54% improvement in performance over previous generation Radeon GPUs. Su also adds that the latest Radeon GPUs are aimed towards delivering great performance while consuming reasonable power usage.

What makes RDNA 3 unique is that it is the world’s first chiplet-based GPU, giving it a modular design that can be easily tweaked. The setup used on the RX 7900 series consists of a 5nm GPU compute die and a 6nm memory cache die. The setup comes with up to 24GB GDDR6 memory and up to 58 billion transistors, and is capable of reaching 61 teraflops of computing power.


The flagship Radeon RX 7900 XTX, which has a new naming convention, comes with 24GB GDDR6 RAM, 96 compute units running at a 2.3Ghz clock speed, 96MB Infinity Cache, and a 355w power draw. The RX 7900 Xt, on the other hand, has 20GB GDDR6 RAM, 84 compute units running at a 2Ghz clock speed, 80MB Infinity Cache, and a 300w power draw.

Both Radeon GPUs now have support for DisplayPort 2.1, giving up up to 54Gbps of bandwidth for displays and support for 8K resolution at 165hz and 4K at 480hz.

Curiously enough, AMD did not prepare any comparision graphs for the RX 7900 series against the RTX 40 series, so it is up to reviewers to determine how they stack up against NVIDIA’s latest crop of GPUs.

Pricing, however, is competitive: the Radeon RX 7900 XTX is priced at $999(~Php 59k), while the XT version is priced at $899(~Php 53.1k). Both are set to be available on December 13. While they are speculated to be weaker than the RTX 4090, AMD’s edge is the aggressive pricing of the RX 7900 XTX, which is $600 less than the SRP of NVIDIA’s new GPU.
