AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT Becomes a Bestseller, as Gamers Largely Ignore the RX 7700 XT

AMD launched the Radeon RX 7700 XT and 7800 XT earlier this month to tackle the upper midrange market. These cards go up against the RTX 4060 Ti and 4070, respectively, offering similar performance at lower price points. The initial sales numbers are in, and the RX 7800 XT has performed exceptionally well. Stocks across most Microcenters are trending close to zero, although some variants have already been restocked.

The latest numbers from Mindfactory Germany (Via TechEpiphany) are quite positive for AMD. The Radeon RX 7800 XT leads the pack, selling 650 units during its launch week, followed by the RTX 4070 (500 units) and the RX 7900 XTX (390 units). Unfortunately, the RX 7700 XT started slowly, selling only 55 units at launch.

The Radeon RX 7800 XT has been selling like hotcakes across Microcenters in the US, with more than half of them out of stock. On the other hand, RX 7700 XT stocks are yet to be depleted at any notable retailer in the US and much of Europe.

Interestingly, online retailers like Newegg and Amazon are seeing limited RX 7800 XT/7700 XT sales. Neither card shows up in the top ten or the top twenty, thirty, forty, or fifty, for that matter.
