It has been confirmed that MSI will be launching its next batch of Radeon RX graphics cards sometime after next week’s official September 6 date. This news comes as MSI was mysteriously absent from the list of partners included in AMD’s announcement for the forthcoming final additions to its current RDNA 3-based GPUs. MSI is a part of a shrinking list of graphics card manufacturers that still produce products using NVIDIA and AMD GPUs so it did cause some speculation if the agreement between MSI and AMD had changed leading to them becoming an NVIDIA-only partner.

From AMD:

“AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT graphics cards will be available from leading board partners including ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Gigabyte, PowerColor, Sapphire, Vastarmor, XFX and Yeston beginning September 6, 2023. AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT graphics cards will also be available from beginning September 6, 2023.”

It turns out though that the reason for MSI’s absence is nothing more than hardware production delay difficulties. Andreas Schilling (Editor at Hardware Luxx) was able to get confirmation from the manufacturer that its own Navi 32 cards will be arriving, just at a later date.

Since MSI will be launching its own versions of Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT graphics cards potential customers needn’t worry about missing out if they were hoping to get one from the manufacturer but it is still currently unknown when they will become available. Meantime it’s worth checking out the official press release info that AMD provided recently which we have here. Additionally, here are the official specifications for the base model cards from AMD for a quick reference.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
