Whereas we puzzled and speculated in regards to the conspicuously absent AMD Radeon RX 7800-series, we noticed a simulated RX 7800 XT created utilizing a Radeon Professional W7800. In the identical article, I speculated that we would not see the RX 7800 XT hit the cabinets for a number of months but, although it seems we would see it sooner quite than later.
ASRock has registered a pair of AMD graphics card fashions with the Eurasian Financial Fee (EEC), as noticed by harukaze5719. Each playing cards affirm the existence and naming of the RX 7800 XT. Although we do not but have confirmed specs, the names recommend the playing cards will ship with 16GB of reminiscence.
The 2 playing cards are the ASRock RX 7800 XT PG 16GO and the RX 7800 XT PGW 16GO. Aside from the affirmation of the RX 7800 XT title and 16GB of reminiscence, it is protected to imagine these playing cards will fall underneath ASRock’s Phantom Gaming sub-brand. The PGW title does not correspond with every other Phantom Gaming mannequin however it’s certainly a variant quite than one thing actually totally different.
The existence of the RX 7800 XT is no surprise, although the timing of its launch is extra so. A typical GPU launch cadence would see the high-end playing cards launch first, adopted by mid-range ones and at last, entry stage fashions. But this time across the RX 7600 was launched earlier than both RX 7800 or 7700 fashions.
It isn’t a tough and quick rule although; nothing is within the GPU world today. AMD launched the RX 7600 as a substitute for Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 4060, however it’s additionally attainable the efficiency wasn’t where it wanted to be, or it wanted a respin or bug repair earlier than AMD was pleased delivery the Navi 32 chip at its coronary heart out to the general public. However right here I am simply speculating.
The RX 7800 XT ought to find yourself as a competitor for Nvidia’s RTX 4070 sequence. Whether or not it competes with them in efficiency, worth, or each is the million greenback query and one all of us sit up for figuring out the reply to.
