RX 7000 series, RTX 40 series in the head-on showdown, AMD once again in the top performance lost, RX 7900 XTX only slightly stronger than RTX 4080, and the other side has RTX 4090 Ti such a big move did not put out.
While we thought the RDNA3 architecture was not fully unlocked and could fight the future, AMD has admitted that this is it.
So is the power of AMD Gpus really not working?
David Wang, senior vice president of engineering at AMD Radeon Technology, and Rick Bergman, senior vice president and general manager of AMD's product division, were asked in a recent interview why they hadn't developed a flagship graphics card that could compare the RTX 4090. To compete with NVIDIA at the high end of the market.
The answer from the two executives:Technically, it was possible for AMD to come up with something comparable to the RTX 4090, but the 600W power and $1,600 price tag were too much for the average PC gamer to swallow, so after much thought AMD backed away.
Interestingly, the power consumption of the RTX 4090 was initially reported to be as high as 600W, but has since been reduced to 450W, but even so, the performance is still far from AMD.
Wang and Rick Bergman also noted that the RX 7900 XTX had an initial target price of $999,The actual price dropped to $899, which is generally the upper end of what high-end gamers can afford-- The RTX 4090 hit a whopping $1,599.
In addition,AMD also wants gamers to upgrade to a new generation of high-end graphics cards that continue to use their regular power supplies and radiators without the need for a massive case, something the RX 7900 series was designed with in mind.
This is no doubt a reference to the RTX 4090's need for a new 16-pin power port for PCIe 5.0 (multiple burn cards), which is also a staggering four-slot thickness.
So, do you agree with AMD?
