Full reviews of the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT graphics cards should be published later in the evening, but for now the first data on the performance of these graphics cards from HD Tecnologia has appeared on the Internet. In short, the new products are mostly superior to their competitors from NVIDIA over the GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 Ti 16GB respectively. However, before drawing any final conclusions, it is worth waiting for the full reviews.
New data suggests that the Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT may cause changes in the current ranking of the best graphics accelerators. Argentina’s HD Tecnología has published performance data for these maps based on the Navi 32 GPU, taken from the reviewers’ guides. Note that the source only provided performance data without specifying the resolution and characteristics of the test systems. All we know is that the tests were presumably run on DirectX 12 at maximum graphics settings for each game.
According to the results, the Radeon RX 7800 XT was 2-23% faster than the GeForce RTX 4070 in traditional rendering, i.e. without ray tracing. The biggest advantage of the Radeon RX 7800 XT was found in games like Borderlands 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and seen Cyberpunk 2077. In other games like The Callisto Protocol and F1 23, the performance difference between the RX 7800 XT and RTX 4070 was 15% or less.
The Radeon RX 7700 XT outperforms the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti. The exact specifications of the latter are not specified, but apparently the older GeForce RTX 4060 Ti with 16 GB of video memory was used in the tests. This is confirmed by the fact that AMD mentioned this particular model in its presentation. The Radeon RX 7700 XT showed the best performance in many games, outperforming its competitor by up to 31%. At the same time, the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB was faster only in Dead Island 2, but inferior in games like Dead Space and Resident Evil.
However, with the inclusion of ray tracing, the picture changes. The GeForce RTX 4070 showed a 13-69% better performance in Cyberpunk 2077 compared to the Radeon RX 7800 XT. However, the AMD card was faster with minimal ray tracing settings. The situation is similar in the confrontation between the Radeon RX 7700 XT and the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti.
The AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT will be available for $499 and $449, respectively, while the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 Ti 16GB start at $599 and $499, respectively. dollars lay. NVIDIA has already dropped the price of the latest model by $50 ahead of AMD’s new releases.
