AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX is Now $118 Cheaper: $221 Less than the RTX 4080

AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX has gotten a chompy price cut, dropping under $900 for the first time. The RDNA 3 flagship launched with a sticker price of $999 in December 2022 and has been fairly popular among enthusiasts. The RX 7900 XTX goes up against NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4080 (often with favorable results) with a larger VRAM buffer, more cache, and a wider bus interface.

The Radeon RX 7900 XTX leverages the full-fledged Navi 31 GPU with 6,144 shaders across 96 CUs and 24GB of GDDR6 memory across a 384-bit. The memory subsystem is backed by 96MB of L3 cache spread across six 16MB MCDs (plus 64-bit controllers), connected using a high-speed Infinity Fabric interconnect.

The XFX Merc 310 features a base clock of 1,855MHz and a peak boost frequency of 2,615MHz. The memory is clocked at 20Gbps, producing an external bandwidth of 960GB/s. Amazon has discounted the RX 7900 XTX to $979 with a $100 coupon, further bringing the price down to $882.

The GeForce RTX 4080 16GB currently costs around $1,100 ($1,110 on Amazon). Although it offers superior ray tracing performance with DLSS 3 support, the fundamental rasterization capability is similar or better in most scenarios.

The Radeon RX 7900 XTX has also been slashed by $80, dropping to $719 at checkout. With this discount, the 7900 XT is $80 cheaper than the RTX 4070 Ti, its closest GeForce rival. We tested and compared both GPUs a while back. You can read our reviews below:
