The Radeon RX 7900 XTX CPU is the highest canine, with AMD touting 24GB of reminiscence, in comparison with the 20GB of reminiscence from the RX 7900 XT. They each launch on December 13 and value $999 and $899 respectively. We’ll deliver you the UK pricing when we’ve got it.
Throughout the occasion, the corporate revealed the RX 7900 XTX is 1.7-times sooner than the prevailing flagship RX 6950 XT, when avid gamers are having fun with the motion at a 4K decision.

Basically, duties have been allotted to totally different cores. There’s a 5nm portion for the graphics, whereas 6nm tech handles all the memory-based stuff. AMD says it’s the first firm to utilise the tech inside a GPU.
The chips additionally deliver enhancements for the en vogue ray-tracing tech, which permits sport builders to showcase superior lighting choices like reasonable shadowing. There’s a 50% improve in efficiency in comparison with the earlier technology and 1.5 extra rays.
The bodily design of the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT is comparable, and the retention of an 8-pin connector means you must simply have the ability to plug it into your present rig with none problem, or extra cables.
We’ll have tons extra content material on the announcement within the morning, together with detailed comparisons between the earlier technology chips and the way they evaluate to the most recent and biggest from Nvidia. Maintain it locked to Trusted Critiques.
