Particulars relating to AMD’s upcoming RX 7800 XT GPU have been laborious to come back by. In reality, even the title wasn’t confirmed. Hypothesis is moot, although, after somebody at PowerColor unintentionally posted the product web page for the Pink Satan Radeon RX 7800 XT. Oops!

The web page (which has clearly been taken down) was noticed by @All_The_Watts (through VideoCardz) and listed a near-complete set of specs. This absolutely means the cardboard is coming ahead of we thought. It was solely a few days in the past that AMD CEO Dr Lisa Su mentioned AMD was on monitor to launch “enthusiast-class” graphics playing cards earlier than the tip of October.

Aside from the TDP of the cardboard and it is value, that is it, of us. However with this, we are able to now speculate about how this long-gestating card will carry out. With a shader rely of 3840, the 7800 XT has about 28% fewer shaders than the RX 7900 XT’s 5376. Each have 16GB of reminiscence, however the 7900 XT’s is quicker, plus it has a wider reminiscence bus.

The RX 7800 XT is clocked somewhat increased, but when we have been to imagine the 7800 XT is about 28% slower than the RX 7900 XT, it would not be too far forward of the RX 6800 XT, and that definitely would not be ideally suited for AMD. I will wait and see the way it performs earlier than getting too far forward of myself.

Different key specs embody the anticipated show connector complement of 1 HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 2.1. PowerColor mentions that solely two DP 2.1 connections are supported on the identical time.

How the cardboard in the end performs available in the market will come right down to its value and efficiency versus the RTX 4060 Ti and RTX 4070. The RTX 4070 Ti is probably going out of attain, given it’s kind of too near the RX 7900 XT in efficiency.

PowerColor’s itemizing did not reveal a TDP, however contemplating the cardboard comes geared up with two 8-pin energy connectors, it is shaping as much as be a little bit of a thirsty one in comparison with Nvidia’s choices. It is also an enormous triple slot, triple fan card, so it is not going to be as environment friendly as one thing just like the RTX 4060 Ti, which sips a comparatively thrifty 160W.

After all, the Pink Satan is a premium mannequin however I might be shocked if entry-level RX 7800 XTs is available in at beneath 250W. 

It is clear we cannot have lengthy to attend for AMD’s mid-range challenger. However one factor is for positive: somebody at PowerColor bought a terse name from the large boss. Or worse.
