The AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT GPU may wind up being as quick as the Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU based on the purported 3DMark Time Spy performance.
The AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT, which will sell at $499 US at launch, will have a 3DMark Time Spy graphics performance of around 19,000 points, according to Kopite7kimi. This shows that early speculations about the card giving 6800 XT performance in a somewhat more efficient package and cheaper price point appear to be genuine even if it doesn’t quite surpass the Radeon RX 6800 XT from the previous generation.
If you compare the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT’s price to that of the competition’s $599 US RTX 4070 12 GB, it is pretty reasonable. If AMD’s own statistics are to be trusted, it provides more VRAM and is touted to be generally 3-5% quicker than the competition.
Additionally, it should be kept in mind that the card is no longer a mass-produced variety, thus the current stocks should be quite little for those who claim that the RX 6800 XT 16 GB alone would be a better purchase than the RX 7800 XT.
Stay tuned for further details, including performance evaluations from different tech publications, as the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT will reach store shelves on September 6th.
