Today marks the official release of AMD’s brand-new Radeon RX 7900 XTX & RX 7900 XT graphics cards, which are powered by RDNA 3. These cards are intended to provide gamers with performance that is geared at enthusiasts. They use the first consumer-grade chiplet GPU architecture in the world.
Up to 23 models have been confirmed so far, 19 of which are based on unique designs created by AMD’s AIB partners, including ASUS, Gigabyte, ASRock, Sapphire, PowerColor, XFX, and Yeston. The Navi 31 GPUs have inspired these manufacturers to create their most cutting-edge PCBs and coolers, and gamers can start buying the card of their choosing right now.
According to recent sources, AMD will have enough of Radeon RX 7900 XTX & RX 7900 XT GPUs in store for gamers at launch and throughout December, so we shouldn’t anticipate many supply-related issues, although that is yet to be determined. Retailers, including Microcenter, have already said they’ll have the cards when they go on sale, and we’ll keep you updated as soon as the retail links go live.
RX 7900 XTX
With a total of 48 WGPs, 96 CUs, and 6144 cores, the Navi 31 XTX GPU is fully used by the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card. The graphics card’s core frequency is kept at 2.5 GHz boost speed and 2.3 GHz base speed, providing up to 61 TFLOPs of computing capability @355W TBP.
Additionally, the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card will include 6 MCDs with a total of 96 MB of Infinity Cache spread across a 384-bit wide bus interface and 16 MB of Infinity Cache per die. The card has a 24 GB VRAM capacity and 20 Gbps dies with 960 GB/s of bandwidth. The reference model of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX will cost $999 US .
RX 7900 XT
There will also be a scaled-down model with a Navi 31 XT GPU core. This chip, which will be used in the Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics card, will have 42 WGPs (84 Compute Units), or 5376 cores. The full-fat version has 12.5% fewer cores than that. With a game clock of just 2.0 GHz, which is 300 MHz slower than the XTX model, and a boost frequency of 2.4 GHz at a TBP of 300W, the GPU will also operate at somewhat lower clock rates.
20 GB of GDDR6 memory will also be available on the Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics card, spread over a 320-bit wide bus interface. The card will have 80 MB of Infinity Cache, which is 16 MB less than the top option and a 16.6% drop, since there are only 5 MCDs active. The Radeon RX 7900 XTX will cost $899 US for the reference model.
