Deal: Forget AMD’s new 7800 XT/7700 XT, grab this 6800 XT instead before it’s gone forever

Published on


Towards the end of last month, AMD unveiled the RX 7800 XT and 7700 XT GPUs, and completed the Radeon RX 7000 (RNDA 3) desktop graphics card lineup. AMD claimed that the 7800 XT could hang with the RTX 4070 for $100 less, while the RX 7700 XT would kill the half-dead RTX 4060 Ti.

The cards finally launched a few days ago on September 6th and AMD was mostly spot on with its first party benchmarks. With the official drivers, the 7800 XT was generally praised by reviewers aside from its dubious name as it is barely faster than the 6800 XT. However, the 7700 XT is less impressive and the card does need a $50 drop to make sense.

Speaking of the 6800 XT, the XFX version of the GPU is currently at its lowest price ever just ~$485 (Buy link below), making it one of the best value for money graphics processors available today. Although the 7800 XT is also a good option at its $499 MSRP, the AIB versions are either too expensive or out of stock, as is common with most new releases. The 6800 XT is on par with Nvidia’s RTX 3080 10GB in terms of raster performance.

Meanwhile, the PowerColor RX 7600 is also at a great price right now as it’s discounted to ~$250 (Buy link below). That’s almost 18% cheaper than Nvidia’s RTX 4060 and at this price point, the RX 7600 is a decent recommendation. The AMD card is slightly faster than the 4060 in resizing although it is much slower in ray tracing. However, at this price point, RT performance shouldn’t matter much.
