Premilinary RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT performance and specifications leak alongside possibly-doomed RX 7800 XTX
While NVIDIA released the RTX 4070 earlier this month, AMD has yet to announce a mid-range RDNA 3 board. This could change in a few months, as we previously reported that AMD may launch the highly-anticipated RX 7800/XT, RX 7700/XT, and RX 7600/XT GPUs in June. To give prospective buyers a heads-up of what to expect from Team Red’s cheaper graphics cards, Paul from RedGamingTech has now detailed preliminary specifications for the Navi 32-based RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT. Interestingly, the leaker has also shared some details regarding the possibly-canceled RX 7800 XTX.
Starting off with the RX 7800 XTX, Paul alleges that the board, which might have been canned, features a cut-down Navi 31 GPU with 70 Compute Units (CU), 16 GB of 21 Gbps GDDR6 memory, a 256-bit wide bus, and a 300 W TBP. Featuring 64 MB of Infinity Cache (IC), the RX 7800 XTX reportedly goes head to head with the RTX 4070 Ti in performance.
Moving on to the RX 7800 XT, the leaker claims that the board utilizes the full Navi 32 chip hence it packs 60 CU. Aside from the lower CU count, the only other major difference between the RX 7800 XT and the RX 7800 XTX is the 285 W TBP for the non-XTX GPU. The performance of the RX 7800 XT could be anywhere from “close to RX 6950 XT” to falling short of the RTX 4070 Ti.
Finally, the leaker has also shared specifications regarding the RX 7700 XT. For starters, the leaker claims that the RX 7700 XT will feature a cut-down Navi 32 GPU with 54 CU, 12 GB of VRAM, a 192-bit wide bus, 48 MB of IC, and 225 W TBP. With these specs, the RX 7700 XT is allegedly going up against the RTX 4060 Ti that is yet to be released.
All in all, if RedGamingTech’s leak is accurate, we could see some healthy competition in the mid-range. Now, let’s hope the pricing of these GPUs is aggressive, so people can actually afford the upgrade.
