The Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT reference design graphics cards have both appeared on Amazon. These listings happen as AMD is set to release the first two offerings for the RX 7000 series on December 13 and other partners such as PowerColor have begun to list their offerings as well. Slowly but surely more specs are becoming public as the launch date nears but core clock speeds remain unpublished. Official pricing for partner cards has not been announced either but AMD has said its MBA (Made by AMD) cards will retail for $899 (7900 XT) and $999 (7900 XTX). Both cards feature a very sleek and minimalistic-looking design that many a PC builder could appreciate following recent years of RGB overload. Interestingly enough neither of the cards features exhaust vents on the display connector plate but both have the 2x 8-pin connectors previously seen with AMD’s original RX 7000 series announcements.
