In the second half of the year, a flurry of new product launches followed by Nvidia's RTX 40 and AMD's RX 7000 series. The introduction of the RX 7000 series is adding to Nvidia's woes at a time when the RTX 40 series is being questioned.
This time RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX use RDNA 3 architecture,It is made by TSMC 5nm technology, and has 1 main graphics computing module and 6 memory cache modules.
Not only that, AMD has made a number of underlying changes to the RDNA 3 architecture, including cramping in more computing units and more shaders.
According to the official information, this generation of AMD gives full play to power consumption, and the performance of each watt is 50% higher than that of the previous generation. Such a strategy is different from Nvidia's power-for-performance strategy. Nvidia's huge power consumption persuaded many players away, and even caused the problem of power interface burning.
In the power interface, AMD did not follow Nvidia, but continue to use 8-PIN interface. RX 7900 XTX TDP is 355W, RX 7900 XT TDP is 300W,The 7900XTX is slightly higher than the 335W of its predecessor, the RX 6950 XT, but the 7900XT achieves a reduction in power consumption.
But most importantly, as a response to Nvidia's two flagship models, the RX 7000 XT is the RTX 4080 16GB version, and the RX 7000 XTX is the direct RTX 4090. In terms of performance, the RX 7000 XT is completely superior to the RTX 4080 16GB in terms of performance and power consumption, with a computing power advantage of up to 16%.
More importantly, the RX 7900 XT will cost only 7,399 compared to the 16GB 9499 of the RTX 4080, which is one of the reasons why the RTX 4080 is being ridiculed by players and users.
The RX 7900 XTX, compared to the RTX 4090, is inferior in terms of performance, but considering that the 7999 is nearly half the price of the RTX 4090 compared to the 12999, this performance loss is somewhat less significant.
A few days ago, someone analyzed the performance between the two, in the game RX 7900 XTX and RTX 4090 almost equal, which means that in the game, RX 7900 XTX is very cost-effective.
while The main reason the RTX 4090 is so expensive is because it has a lot more computing power in AI and professional computing, which is rarely available to the average user.
AMD has been eagerly awaiting the release of these two graphics cards since they were announced, and although they are still a month away, AMD has cut the price of the older graphics cards.The RX 6950 XT, a smaller version of the RX 6900 XT, was launched in May with a suggested retail price of 8,399 yuan.
In terms of specs, the RX 6950 XT has 80 cells and 16GB DDR6 video memory, but with this year's RX 7900 XTX, a price cut is inevitable. Currently, the card has been reduced to 6,699 yuan on third-party platforms, but as the new card comes out, the price of the old card will be further reduced.
Even though it's Nov 11, gamers can still wait for the new RX 7000 series graphics card to hit the market. It has to be said that AMD is more conscientious than Nvidia when it comes to its customers. The RX 7900 XT, which is also an upgrade, has even lowered its price compared to its predecessor, while Nvidia has dramatically increased its price and lost many users.
