The GeForce RTX 4080 is a couple of days away, and AMD decided to get NVIDIA’s attention by sharing more information about its new Radeon RX 7900 series. The graphics cards are based on RDNA 3 architecture with up to 6144 stream processors.
AMD’s cards are smaller in size and don’t require any new and problematic power connectors. The company has already confirmed that their Radeon RX 7900 series will compete with the RTX 4080, leaving no doubt that the RTX 4090 will remain the most efficient gaming card.
The AMD Radeon series will have more power phases, supporting DisplayPort 2.1 and USB Type-C connectors, not to mention the standard 8-pin power connectors with two PCIe connectors. AMD also notes that both Radeon RX 7900 cards are shorter and thinner than the NVIDIA RTX 4080 Founders Edition; the only thing they have in common is the PCIe Express 4.0 interface.
AMD will offer more memory and advanced display options in the $900 to $1,200 price range. However, when it comes to performance, neither of the two companies is ready to compare their products.
It’s still about a month until the AMD Radeon RX 7900 launches, and maybe some detailed reviews will trickle out soon.
