AMD aims for high-end and even 8K gaming with its new Radeon 7000

RDNA 3 debuts with AMD ‘s RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX .

AMD presented its answer on Thursday, the NVIDIA RTX 40 series with the Radeon 7000 , based on the RDNA 3 architecture.

After regaining competitiveness in the high-end of CPUs, AMD responds with this generation that adopts the chiplet design that we see in Ryzen .

This is how the Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX video cards arrive , seeking to claim a place in the highest range when it comes to graphics.

The new RX 7000  have a design that mixes a graphics chip and one for the cache. This means, according to AMD, a 54% improvement over RDNA 2 , seen on the Radeon 6000 .

RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT: AMD for the high end

The RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT have 24GB and 20GB of memory, respectively, and are equipped with artificial intelligence accelerators along with improved Ray Tracing , a point that AMD needed to resolve regarding the RX 6000 , its first graphics cards with ray tracing.

AMD also features Display Port 2.1 , which can deliver up to 165 frames per second in 8K resolution and 480 in 4K.

The RX 7900 XTX is AMD’s top of the range with ambitious goals for 4K gaming (up to 704 fps in Valorant without FSR support) and even 8K gaming with high frames per second with the support of FSR, which is already reaching its third version.

AMD ‘s most powerful graphics card has a power draw of up to 355W, just under 100W below NVIDIA ‘s RTX 4090 .

This allows you to use two standard 8-pin connectors and only use 2.5 computer slots in AMD designs . This, depending on the manufacturer, may change in different models.

RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT: price is key

AMD is fairly competitively priced for its flagships, starting at $899 for the RX 7900 XT and $999 for the RX 7900 XTX in the US .

These will be available from December 13.
