Review: AMD RX 7800 XT, the new queen of 1440p?


It’s a busy day for us at the end of the NDA, with no less than four tests of the new AMD cards, the RX 7700 XT and RX 7800 XT, which we presented to you a few days ago. We’ll be reviewing AMD’s reference model, the RX 7800 XT, as well as the TUF Gaming RX 7700 XT OC, TUF Gaming RX 7800 XT OC and Powercolor’s Red Devil RX 7800 XT. So it’s time for our first test with AMD’s benchmark board.

This card is aimed at the mid-range 1440p 60 FPS segment, with an MSRP of $499. This could be an excellent price if you’re looking to upgrade your old GPU. The AMD RX 7800 XT is a direct competitor to the NVIDIA RTX 4070. We’ll find out for sure in our test.

We’ve taken advantage of this article to redo all our tests with the latest drivers available from NVIDIA, AMD and Intel. As you can see from our test protocol, all our graphics have just been updated!
Special thanks to AMD for making this Radeon RX 7800 XT available.
