AMD’s Upcoming Radeon RX 7800 XT: Leaked Specifications and Potential Competition for Nvidia

Just a day after AMD’s announcement regarding the launch of new Radeon 7000 desktop GPUs at its quarterly earnings call, we now have credible information on one of the upcoming models. AMD GPU board partner, PowerColor, inadvertently published a listing for its upcoming Radeon RX 7800 XT ‘Red Devil’ graphics card, revealing its complete specifications before quickly taking it down.

According to the leaked information, the PowerColor RX 7800 XT will boast impressive features. With 3840 stream processors and 60 compute units, it will deliver powerful performance. The graphics card will feature a 256-bit memory interface with a notable bandwidth of 576GB/s. Moreover, it will be equipped with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, ensuring smooth multitasking and handling of demanding applications. The boost clock speeds are expected to reach up to an impressive 2,565 MHz in OC mode.

While the listing did not include details about power consumption, it did suggest that the GPU will require two 8-pin PCIe power connectors. In terms of power supply requirements, PowerColor recommended a minimum of 800W. Comparing this to the previous-generation Radeon RX 6800 XT, which had a power rating of 300W with two power connectors, we can expect the power consumption of the RX 7800 XT to fall somewhere between 250-300W. Additionally, like most modern GPUs, the RX 7800 XT is expected to feature four video out ports, including three DisplayPort 2.1 and one HDMI 2.1.

However, it’s essential to note that the product listing page includes a disclaimer stating, “The entire information provided herein is for reference only. PowerColor reserves the right to modify or revise the content at any time without prior notice.” Therefore, we should approach this leaked information with caution, as it may not fully represent the final product until AMD officially announces the graphics card.

As for its price, we currently don’t have any indications. However, if AMD can target a pricing range of $600 to $650 for the RX 7800 XT, it could potentially offer strong competition to Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 40-series GPUs. AMD’s recently released RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX have already impressed the market, and if AMD can maintain this momentum, we could have another contender for the title of the best graphics card on the market.

In conclusion, the leaked specifications for the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT ‘Red Devil’ graphics card showcase impressive power and performance. While we should approach the leaked information with some skepticism, if the final product aligns with these specifications, we could witness a new contender in the high-end graphics card market. With AMD’s strong track record and the potential for competitive pricing, it seems that the RX 7800 XT has the potential to challenge Nvidia’s dominance in the GPU market.
