New RDNA 4 leak reveals RX 7900 XT-beating performance and mid-range price of AMD Radeon RX 8000 GPUs
We reported previously that AMD appears to have canceled the development of the high-end RDNA 4 GPUs and only the mid-range Navi 44 and Navi 43-based cards could come to market. Serial leaker Moore’s Law Is Dead has since alleged more information regarding the AMD Radeon RX 8000 boards.
MLID claims that the desktop RDNA 4 is “projected to beat the RX 7900 XT”. However, it is uncertain if the RDNA 4 performance will be enough to beat the upcoming RTX 4080 SUPER. As a refresher, MLID recently suggested that the RTX 4080 SUPER will bring a performance uplift of around 6-9% vs the RTX 4080. So if the top-end card in the RX 8000 lineup fails to compete with the RTX 4080 SUPER, the GPU would most probably lag behind or, at best, match the RX 7900 XTX.
Moving on, MLID reports that, since the RX 8000 GPUs are expected to occupy the mid-range segment, the RDNA 4 price could be US$400-US$600. As a comparison, AMD’s current mid-range offerings like the RX 7700 XT (Available on Amazon) and the RX 7800 XT (Available on Amazon) had launch MSRPs of US$449 and US$499 respectively.
Finally, MLID fails to add to his previous RDNA 4 release date projection of Q3 2024. So, we don’t know the exact date when AMD might launch the RDNA 4 GPUs.
Needless to say, MLID’s RDNA 4 leak consists of unconfirmed information from an anonymous source. So, take it with caution, as it could be way off.
