AMD Allegedly Prepping the Radeon RX 7800, and RX 7700 for Launch

AMD is allegedly prepping the last of its RDNA 3 desktop graphics cards for launch, including the Radeon RX 7800 and RX 7700. With CES 2024 on the horizon and rival NVIDIA set to release its RTX 40 “Super” refresh, it’s a good time to unveil new (more affordable) hardware. The latest info comes from a Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) manifest consisting of several Radeon graphics cards, including the RX 7900 XT, RX 7600, and the RTX 6×50 XT lineup.

The manifest mentions the Radeon RX 7700, RX 7800, and the RX 7600 XT. These unreleased SKUs may be launched during the first quarter of 2024. The RX 7700 and 7800 are highly likely candidates to join AMD’s desktop GPU lineup as cost-effective options. The RX 7600 XT makes less sense as older RDNA 2 parts already cater to the sub-$350 market. Maybe later in 2024?

The Radeon RX 7700/7800 should use the Navi 32 GPU like their XT counterparts. The former will leverage a generously disabled die while the latter a mildly trimmed shader array. The memory and memory bus should remain the same, while the L3 cache may get the scalpel. The retail prices of the RX 7800 XT and 7700 XT leave little room for a 7800. However, the RTX 4070 Super launch will almost certainly lead to price cuts, widen the gap, and carve a spot for the new cards.
