The RTX 4090 is banned in China, and NVIDIA is planning a special version, the RTX 4090 D, with a performance downgrade to meet export controls - D stands for Dragon, because next year is the Chinese Year of the Dragon.
Because the United States is based on the density of computing power to ban the sale of products, AMD RX 7900 series graphics cards will follow suit, especially Dell recently issued a notice, claiming that it will not continue to sell RX 7900 XTX/XT, Pro W7900 in China, which exacerbated this concern.
But according to the latest information from Fast Technology,AMD has never notified its partners of the suspension of the RX 7900 series in China, nor has it received a notice from the relevant authorities in the United States, and the so-called ban is a misreading.
Of course, it is not ruled out that the situation may change in the future, as the RTX 4090 began to say that it can continue to sell, and the result is still banned, but at least for now, the RX 7900 series is safe.
As for why Dell issued such a notice, it is not known, it may be to protect itself, just in case, but in any case, it is its own behavior.
In today's situation, the RTX 4090 series is banned, and the RX 7900 series has become the best substitute, whether to play games or do AI, not the best, but also to meet basic needs.
In particular, the AMD ROCm 5.7 development platform has fully supported the RX 7900 series, Pro W7900, Windows Olive also supports AMD graphics cards, and AI and computing applications have been greatly improved.
However, the supply of the RX 7900 series for the Chinese market has been limited, and its sales have been on the rise recently, resulting in severe shortages and price increases, which are expected to continue until the first quarter of next year.
AMD should try to increase the supply of RX 7900 series to the Chinese market, but there is no clear news for the time being.
