According to the latest rumors, AMD will launch the Radeon RX 7700 and RX 7800 at Gamescom next month. Based on the Navi 32 graphics core, these GPUs will offer 1080p and 1440p gaming performance without breaking the bank. The RX 7800 will tackle the RTX 4070, while the RX 7700 will go up against the RTX 4060 Ti. A well-reputed tipster has shared their performance estimates on Twitter:
According to @All_The_Watts, the Radeon RX 7800 will be roughly as fast as the RTX 4070, but not faster. This likely indicates that it’ll perform the same in rasterized gaming but fall behind in ray-tracing as usual. Meanwhile, the RX 7700 is expected to surpass the RTX 4060 Ti in rasterized workloads while delivering comparable ray-tracing performance (I still expect it to be slower in RT).
According to Moore’s Law is dead, AMD hasn’t finalized the pricing for the midrange RDNA 3 graphics cards, but should do so soon. The Radeon RX 7700 and RX 7800 are slated to land during Gamescom in late August. His source believes that the RX 7800 will be priced between $499 and $549 while the RX 7700 will cost somewhere between $399 and $449.
The GeForce RTX 4070 is priced at $599, while the RTX 4060 Ti costs $399 and $499 for the 8GB and 16GB variants, respectively. The 3DMark Time Spy benchmarks of the Radeon RX 7800 and RX 7700 surfaced a while back, indicating that AMD will release the non-XT SKUs ahead of the XTs. The RX 7800 registered 18,957 points in the 3DMark Time Spy graphics benchmark, narrowly beating NVIDIA’s RTX 4070 (18K points). Compared to the Radeon RX 6800, we’re looking at a gen-over-gen uplift of 16%.
