As we’ve stated a few times in the past, NVIDIA is no longer alone in the higher end of the world of graphics cards. The times when AMD went to market with only and only wallet-friendly alternatives in their pocket are long gone, as we had the opportunity to see with the RX 6000 based on the RDNA2 graphics architecture.
Yes, it’s true that AMD is a little late, as NVIDIA has already entered the new generation, launching its super powerful (and super expensive) RTX 4090. know what AMD has to offer in this field.
A launch that should be extremely interesting, because AMD needs to move the product seriously, after some failures with the Ryzen 7000 processors, which apparently failed to convince consumers. AMD will have to rival in performance, but also in price.
AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT and 7900 XTX in December!
Therefore, it seems that AMD will enter the new generation with two models, Radeon RX 7900 XTand the super high-end RX 7900 XTX. Yes, we will have the return of the XTX nomenclature, in what appears to be an extremely confident AMD in its new architecture.
Something that makes perfect sense, because in case you didn’t know, these graphics cards will both be based on the 5nm Navi 31 MCM GPU. That is, they will be the first graphics cards on the market to have more than one logical unit within the same package.
However, in terms of performance, the increase is expected to be 100%, compared to the 2020 RDNA2 graphics cards. In other words, these two graphics cards will perfectly match the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 in the field of graphics performance. Let’s hope they don’t measure up in terms of price, because the market needs more wallet-friendly alternatives.
The launch should take place on November 3rd, with the first units hitting shelves sometime in early December.
