The RX 7700 XT and RX 7800 XT Replace


AMD has launched two new graphics playing cards, the RX 7800 XT ($500) and the RX 7700 XT ($450). One is decently good, and the opposite is… normal for AMD launches.


The RX 7800 XT


This new $500 choices has fairly a number of issues going for it:

    • Glorious 1440p efficiency, respectable 4K efficiency
    • Attracts much less energy than the 6800 XT that it replaces
    • Produces much less warmth and noise
    • Launches at $500, versus the $650 6800 XT launch

There are drawbacks to this card:

    • Efficiency is virtually indistinguishable from the 6800 XT
    • The RX 6800 XT value has come down… to $500

All in all, this card is first rate. If you happen to purchased a 6800 XT for $500, or for those who purchased the brand new 7800 XT for $500, you’re getting virtually the identical deal. It isn’t low-cost in any respect, however nearer to affordable given the efficiency.


The RX 7700 XT


This card is $50 cheaper, however 15% slower than the 7800 XT. Energy draw, warmth and noise are all superb… however why the nonsensical pricing?

It is a $400 card. If AMD didn’t need the brand new card to compete with outdated $400 playing cards, then why launch the $500 7800 XT when there’s a $500 6800 XT?

Maybe AMD will give a value lower when the older $400 playing cards go out-of-stock. In fact, for the worth of $450, it stays a (barely) logical buy, so we are going to embrace it in our chart. However we can even add a warning concerning the value within the description.


Going Ahead


We are going to add the RX 7800 XT to the Glorious and Excellent tiers, and the RX 7700 XT as a substitute for the Very good tier.

We are going to take away the 6800 (no XT) within the USA listing, as its value is just not logical any extra.
