Where to buy AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT: UK and US links

Here's where to find AMD's new flagship GPUs.

Last month, AMD announced their long-awaited answer to Nvidia's insanely powerful (and expensive!) RTX 4090 in the form of their brand new brand new Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT. In this article, we've rounded up all the important details that you need to know about 'em, including price, performance, amd most importantly, where you'll be able to get your greasy hands on one, once the December 13th release date arrives - that's less a week away at the time of writing.

So let's talk performance, first of all. AMD has highlighted that these top of the line RX 7000 cards should be up to 70 percent faster than their predecessors, with 1.5x better FPS figures in COD: MW2 for instance, and 1.7x in Cyberpunk 2077. AMD is accomplishing this through a new chiplet-based design, which combines a cutting-edge 5nm process for the graphics compute die and six 6nm memory cache dies plumbed together via a 5.3TB/s interconnect.

Using a chiplet design should allow for improved yields and lower costs of manufacturing, whhich should translate into lower consumer prices. This idea formed the basis of Ryzen's success in the desktop CPU space, so it'll be especially interesting to see how they work in the GPU space too.

Elsewhere, AMD is saying the right things for people dissatisfied with Nvidia's RTX 40-series announcements. Power targets haven't shifted significantly, the cards are a reasonable size, only two eight-pin power inputs are required, rasterisation performance looks good and DisplayPort 2.1 is included - so all in all, exciting stuff.

For more of an in-depth look at what the DF team makes of all things RX 7000, then it's worth taking a look at the DF Direct from this time last month where there's discussions on the cards themselves, their chiplet design, FSR 3.0, and a whole lot more! Of course, the review is forthcoming, and when that breaks cover, I'll definitely be shouting about it.

Where can you buy Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT in the UK?

You should be able to buy Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT from a range of major UK retailers, which we've summarised in a handy table below. It would make sense for stock to sell out quickly, so do consider checking a second or even third retailer if you aren't able to order from your normal favourite store.

Where can you buy Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT in the US?

The RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT should be available a wide range of major American stores, which we've summarised in a handy table below. Stock is expected to sell out quickly, so do consider checking a second or even third retailer if you aren't able to order from your normal go-to!

How fast are Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT?

In short: incredibly fast compared to older cards. As mentioned in the intro, the RX 7900 XTX offers 50 to 70 percent higher frame rates than the RX 6950 XT in games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Cyberpunk 2077.

However, we don't yet have performance data on the RX 7900 XT. Looking at the specs, we'd expect to see a 15 to 20 percent reduction in frame-rates, as we see a similar range of spec reductions in terms of CUs, game clock, memory interface, board power and so on - despite just a $100 difference in price.

Elsewhere, the RX 7900 XTX looks like a capable contender in rasterised (and to a lesser extent RT) performance. AMD performance figures include maximum possible frame-rates for Apex Legends, Overwatch 2 and Valorant at 1440p, 275 to 704fps at 4K with FSR in games like Hitman 3, Modern Warfare 2 and F1 22.

Elsewhere, the 7900-series cards also include DisplayPort 2.1 support, allowing up to 8K 165Hz or 4K 480Hz displays (neither of which exist yet). AV1 encode/decode support and dual media encoders are also included, in a boon for streamers and content creators.

What are Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT prices?

AMD's official retail prices for the RX 7900 XTX and 7900XT are $999 and $899 especially, making them a fair bit cheaper than the RTX 4090. Intriguingly, prices haven't gone up compared to the last generation of GPUs, and actually constitute a decrease in MSRP compared to the RX 6950 XT, which retailed for $1299.

This would suggest that the anticipated cheaper manufacturing costs associated with a chiplet-based card are being passed onto consumers by way of a price decrease, which is especially nice to see, given the sheer mammoth of the RTX 4090's MSRP.

What are the specs of the RTX 4090?

It must be stressed that the RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT are insanely powerful cards, not only compared to their predecessors and with AMD's quoted benchmark figures, but also generally speaking, not least thanks to the benefits of a 5nm processing node, a chiplet-based design, and all the additional goodness it brings with it.

What is the release date of RX 7900 XTX + 7900 XT?

The RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT are set to be released on December 13th, 2022, in the US, UK and generally worldwide.

We're expecting to learn more details on the release schedule as the date approaches, including which retailers will stock the cards, what reference and third-party designs will be available, and so on.

Are pre-built Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon 7900 XT desktop PCs available in the UK?

When the 7900 XTX and 7900 XT release fully, it's likely there will be pre-built PCs available from vendors with the cards inside them. Compared to buying the card on its own, it can cost a fair bit more to get a pre-built PC, but you are paying the price for the convenience of letting someone do the work for you. Here are some retailers we expect to build PCs with these new cards in the UK:

Retailer Price range
Overclockers £1599 and up (estimated)
PC Specialist £1599 and up (estimated)
CCL £1599 and up (estimated)
AWD IT £1599 and up (estimated)
CyberPowerPC £1599 and up (estimated)
Chillblast £1599 and up (estimated)
Box Custom PCs £1599 and up (estimated)

Are pre-built Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon 7900 XT desktop PCs available in the US?

There should be a range of American system integrators that can take care of the hard work of building a high-end gaming rig with either the RX 7900 XTX or 7900 XT inside when it releases and sending it to your door. Here are some of our absolute faves.

Retailer Price range
Origin PC $1599 and up (estimated)
iBuyPower $1599 and up (estimated)
Maingear $1599 and up (estimated)
