Gamescom had some really exciting announcements about the upcoming titles and AMD decided to crash the party with a big reveal of their own. They took the Gamescom stage to unveil the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT. Now, you might be wondering if these bad boys can kick your gaming up a notch. Well, let's dive in and see what they bring to the table.
Crafted on AMD RDNA 3 architecture, both the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT have one mission: to serve up 1440p gaming at 60+ FPS. These cards come packed with VRAM goodness – the Radeon RX 7800 XT boasts 16GB, while the Radeon RX 7700 XT rocks 12GB of high-speed GDDR6 VRAM. That means up to 50% bump in memory bandwidth for those crisp, high-res gaming moments.
First up, the AMD RDNA 3 Architecture got revamped compute units that play nice with Raytracing and AI accelerators that are primed for the latest AI tasks. They come armed with second-generation AMD Infinity Cache technology and second-generation Raytracing tech to keep things running smooth. With fresh AI instructions and a beefed-up AI throughput, they're dishing out over 2X the performance compared to the AMD RDNA 2 architecture.
According to AMD, their upgraded AMD encoders aren't just your run-of-the-mill encoders – they’ll crank up the visual quality when you're in the streaming and recording game. AMD has also infused AI and content adaptive machine learning tech into their AMD Media Framework. What does this mean? Well, it means that when you're streaming at those lower bitrates and resolutions, your text is going to look sharp.
AMD has also got an encode/decode media engine that's all about unlocking fresh, multimedia adventures. It's got full AV1 encode/decode support, plus it throws in some wide colour gamut and high-dynamic range enhancements for good measure. The AMD Radiance Display Engine steps up to the plate, supporting DisplayPort 2.1 and HDMI 2.1a-based displays. It boasts 12-bit HDR and full REC2020 Colour Space for colour accuracy, especially when you're diving into 8K video playback.
Plus, AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution Technology is also now available and upcoming in 300 titles. AMD upscaling tech provides crisp, high-resolution image quality while boosting frame rates in supported games.
You won't even have to wait long to get your hands on the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT graphics cards – they're hitting the market on September 6. They come with price tags of $499 (around ₹41,000) for the Radeon RX 7800 XT and $449 (around ₹37,000) for the Radeon RX 7700 XT.
