The AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT failed to attract significant attention from gamers, primarily because of its high price. Despite its initial release at $449, paired with the $499 RX 7800 XT, the sales of this card have remained only a fraction of the total Navi 32-based model.
Yet, a current promotion on the Newegg website showcases two PowerColor models at $353 and $357, a nearly $100 reduction from the official MSRP. Despite no announced price cut from AMD for this SKU and no indications of planned adjustments, this promotion might hint at a potential discount, especially given the scarcity of RDNA2 models like the RX 6700 XT in the market.
Sporting the Navi 32 XL GPU with 3456 Stream Processors, the AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT features a modest 192-bit memory bus supporting a 12GB GDDR6 memory configuration. Notably, this represents a 4GB reduction compared to the RX 7800 XT.
The dual PowerColor models feature a triple-fan cooling solution, but only the Hellhound SKU boasts factory overclocking, reaching 2599 MHz. Additionally, the Hellhound model has a slightly thicker profile with a 2.5-slot design, while the Fighter model caters to the company’s budget-oriented design.
