Just a couple of days before the official launch of NVIDIA’s RTX 4080, AMD has released more details on their Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards, comparing many of their features directly to the RTX 4080. With the Radeon RX 7900 series not launching for another month, maybe this is a ploy to get gamers to hold off on buying an RTX 40 series card and wait for the Radeon RX 7900 series.
In the first graphic AMD shows that both of their upcoming cards have more VRAM going across a larger memory bus and that the RX 7900 XT has a lower Typical Board Power.
On the next one AMD compares the sizes of the cards, where both of their cards are shorter and thinner than the RTX 4080. They also note that their cards do not have the 16-pin 12VHPWR cable, which has many complications. Instead both of their cards will have dual 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors.
After that they go over connections. Where the Radeon RX 7900 series offers DisplayPort 2.1, while NVIDIA’s RTX 40 series is only DisplayPort 1.4a. This gives them a faster DisplayPort bandwidth and higher refresh rates at both 4K and 8K.
Finally they show pricing, which both of their cards come in under the $1199 MSRP of the RTX 4080.
Both the Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX will be available December 13th 2022.
