The Radeon RX 7700 XT is up to 31% Faster than the NVIDIA RTX 4070, Claims AMD

After months of speculation, AMD has revealed its budget RDNA 3 lineup. Consisting of the Radeon RX 7700 XT and the 7800 XT, these GPUs will form the bread and butter of the Radeon Division. Thanks to a delayed/staggered launch schedule, these graphics cards will roll out in an NVIDIA-dominated field consisting of the GeForce RTX 4060, RTX 4060 Ti, RTX 4070, and RTX 4070 Ti.

AMD’s first-party benchmarks paint a rosy picture of its upcoming Radeon offerings. We’re looking at an advantage of 20-30% over their GeForce rivals. The Radeon RX 7700 XT is of particular note. The 12GB card is up to 31% faster than the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti. In fact, the 7700 XT maintains a double-digit advantage over the RTX 4060 Ti in 12 titles, losing in just a few, like F1 2023 and Doom Eternal with RT.

Moving to the RX 7800 XT, the maximum delta contracts to 23%. On average, we’re looking at a 5-10% delta in rasterized titles with a lead of 10-20% in ray-traced games. That said, remember that the RX 7700 XT will cost $449, while the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB is priced at $399. The 16GB variant is mostly irrelevant as the performance remains unchanged.

The Radeon RX 7800 XT will debut at $499, $100 less than the RTX 4070, making it a much better option for 1440p gaming, ray-tracing or not. You also get an additional 4GB of VRAM and a bundled copy of Starfield to go with it. Watch out for our review of the RX 7700 XT and 7800 XT set to land in the coming days.
