AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT and 7800 XT Are Coming for Your 1440p Gaming
Now that it’s covered the high end with its Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX GPUs and the low with the RX 7600, AMD brings its latest RDNA 3-generation GPUs into the mainstream, targeting gamers who want better-than-basic 1440p gameplay (around 70fps and higher, depending upon quality settings). Starting at $449 and $499 for the RX 7700 XT and RX 7800 XT, on price they compete with roughly with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti. We’ll have to wait to see how they compare on frame rates.
AMD offers its own model of the 7800 XT in addition to third-party providers, but the 7700 XT will only be available from its board partners, like Sapphire and XFX. They both start shipping in early September. The company won’t state particular frame rates, but it promises that it will run the very demanding Starfield well at 1440p. The new game will be bundled with the cards when they ship on Sept. 6.
