AMD's RX 7900 XT is the second best-selling GPU on Amazon, with a 17% discount

The RX 7900 XT from AMD is gaining momentum in the GPU market and has now become the second best-selling graphics card on Amazon, thanks to a 17% discount below MSRP at the time of writing. This makes AMD's 7900 XT one of the best deals in the high-end GPU market, as well as one of the best GPUs overall, with a higher value than Nvidia's RTX 4070 Ti.

The specific model in question is the XFX RX 7900 XT Speedster MERC310, which is currently selling for $787. At this price point, the 7900 XT beats the RTX 4070 Ti by $12, while also outperforming it by 9% in pixelated games. Additionally, it has 8GB of additional video memory with a total of 20GB compared to just 12GB in the 4070 Ti. This will be important for running AAA titles at maximum settings and resolutions in the coming years.

The card itself is a massive three-fan, three-slot graphics card measuring 13.5 inches long. The shroud is painted in a discreet matte black finish with silver details. Clock speeds range from a base of 1775 MHz up to a maximum boost frequency of 2535 MHz. The card also features two additional 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and XFX recommends a minimum 750W power supply to run this card.

With this excellent offer, it's not surprising that AMD is making a lot of sales with its RX 7900 XT. Nvidia's high pricing for their RTX 40 series graphics cards, coupled with the underwhelming memory configuration of the 12GB RTX 4070 series, is not an inspiring combination for gamers. The rather low memory capacity is a cause for particular concern, as 12GB is the minimum required to run 4K games at ultra settings in new titles from 2023, including Resident Evil 4 and The Last of Us Part 1.

To reiterate, the performance of the 7900 XT is excellent for rasterized games, with a 9% advantage over the RTX 4070 Ti at 1440P. This places the performance of the 7900 XT between the RTX 4070 Ti and the much more expensive GeForce RTX 4080, while also being cheaper than both of these
