AMD has stated that its Radeon RX 7900 Series graphics cards are expected to be available from AMD.com beginning December 13, 2022, and from leading board partners that include ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI beginning “mid-December.”
A new report from MyDrivers suggests that while reference Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards will indeed be available beginning December 13, 2022, custom Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards will actually show up later than that, with the waiting period estimated to be about one to two weeks:
From MyDrivers (machine translation):
According to Bobantang, the first sale of the RX 7900 series is only the AMD public version model, and the non-public version will have to wait for about 1-2 weeks, and the price of the non-public version may be much more expensive.
Custom Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards could also be a lot pricer than the reference models, which AMD has priced at $999 and $899, respectively, as suggested in the portion of MyDrivers’ report above.
ASUS and PowerColor appear to be the only manufacturers who have shown off their custom Radeon RX 7900 Series graphics cards thus far, with the former detailing its TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX earlier this month, followed by a press release.
AMD has said that its RDNA 3 architecture offers 54% more performance per watt than the older RDNA 2 architecture.
