Amazon is the first to list Radeon RX 7000 GPUs, while XFX offers RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT models on Amazon for pre-order. Prices exceed official MSRPs.
Amazon has taken the lead among major retailers by being the first to list the highly-anticipated Radeon RX 7000 GPUs for sale. XFX, a renowned board partner, has also wasted no time in listing its new Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT graphics cards on the Amazon platform, making them available for pre-order.
XFX is offering two distinct models, the MERC 319 and QICK 319, for each SKU. The RX 7700 XT, however, will be exclusively available through board partners, marking AMD's decision to refrain from direct sales. On the other hand, the RX 7800 XT will make its initial appearance as a reference (MBA) model through the official AMD store.
XFX is pricing these GPUs above the official MSRPs of $499 and $449. The RX 7800 XT MERC 319 is set to debut at $539.99, while the RX 7700 XT QICK 319 will be available for $459.99. This pricing discrepancy is partially attributed to the QICK series being XFX's lower-tier offering, whereas the MERC series represents their top-tier product line.
Delving into the technical specifications, the AMD RX 7800 XT boasts the Navi 32 GPU with a full 60 Compute Units, complemented by 16GB of GDDR6 memory. In contrast, the RX 7700 XT features a slightly trimmed-down Navi 32 configuration with 54 Compute Units and 12GB of GDDR6 memory. Both cards share similar power requirements, with the RX 7800 XT demanding a minimum of 263W during gaming and relying on a default 245W Board Power.
While XFX has not officially disclosed the clock speeds for these cards, these details are expected to have been finalized by now. Review coverage for both models is set to debut today, providing enthusiasts with more in-depth information about these highly anticipated graphics cards.
