Recently, some netizens found that on foreign e-commerce platforms, AMD just released last year's flagship graphics card RX 7900 XT has a price cut, the public version of the original price of 7399 yuan, and Huachuan's RX 7900 XT has been reduced to 830 dollars, equivalent to RMB 5800 yuan.
On the hardware side, AMD? RX? The 7900 series all use RDNA 3 architecture,It still uses Taiwan Semiconductor 5nm chips, with one main graphics computing module and six memory cache modules。
Not only that, AMD has made many underlying changes to the architecture of RDNA 3, including cramping in more computing units and more shaders.
According to the official information, this generation of AMD has taken power consumption to the extreme, and the performance per watt has increased by 50% compared to the previous generation. This strategy is different from Nvidia's power-for-performance strategy. Nvidia's huge power consumption has made many players feel ashamed, while AMD's power consumption improvement is more in line with players' expectations.
AMD didn't follow Nvidia's lead when it came to power interfaces, but continued to use the 8-PIN interface. The RX 7900XTX has a TDP of 355W and the RX 7900XT has a TDP of 300W, up slightly from the previous generation RX 6950 XT's 335W, 7900XTX, but the 7900? The XT, however, achieves a reduction in power consumption.
AMD has two versions of the Navi 31 GPU, the higher specification is the RX 7900 XT, which is equipped with a full GCD and 6 MCDS, while the RX 7900 XT is also fully equipped with the computing unit, but only 84 out of 96 and 5 MCDS are enabled.
It seems that AMD is completely shielding the 6 cores through physical means, which means that players can't open the cores to improve the performance of the graphics card, after all, the graphics card doesn't have 4GB to spare? DDR6 video memory to use.
The RX 7900 XT has 12.5% fewer stream processors than the RX 7900 XTX, but the performance gap between the two is much higher, leading some to believe that the data is abnormal.
And this is only OpenCL's run score data, there is no Vulkan run score data that can reflect the game performance, so the reference value is not high.
At the launch,AMD officials claim that the RX 7900 XT has a 16 percent computing advantage over the RTX 4080,It's also $200 cheaper.
But when tested after the launch, the AMD RX 7900 XT's OpenCL score trailed the RX 7900 XTX by 16%, and against Nvidia's latest RTX 40 series graphics card, it trailed the RTX 4080 by about 23%, barely closing in on the RTX 3080 Ti.
Such a result for the user, belongs to is unacceptable.
In actual playtesting, the RX 7900 XT trailed the RTX 4080 in terms of base gaming performance, not as advertised as the RTX? The 4080 is a close match, but the RX 7900 XTX has had its ups and downs with the RTX 4080, with only a 10% lead at most, which is a bit of a flop compared to the ambitious launch.
This isn't the first time the card has dropped in price,Earlier, the RX 7900 XT was discounted by 800 yuan on domestic e-commerce platforms, from 7,399 yuan to 6,599 yuan.
Is AMD well aware that this product faces Nvidia RTX? After the 40 series' failure, it was no surprise that it began to cut prices in order to win over customers and maintain market share.
In terms of actual performance, the RX 7900 XTT against the RTX 4070 Ti, even in 4K resolution gaming has a small advantage, not DLSS and light tracking technology still lags behind Nvidia.
