AMD is gearing up against the RTX 4080 and it just might win as the revered graphics card now seems to have a target on its back, and it’s locked on.
AMD is Gearing Up Against The RTX 4080
The RTX 4080 is the most key and significant generational leap we have so far seen from Nvidia, crushing the RTX 4090 and the RTX 3090 Ti with a price tag to also match. And just before the launch, many of us expected AMD to topple this very jump, but it will not. The new RX 7900 series instead will directly compete with the RTX 4080.
The New Radeon RX 7900 XTX Is Crafted To Compete With the RTX 4080
Chief Architect of gaming solutions and marketing at AMD, Frank Azor confirmed this development during the RDNA 3 reveal in Las Vegas. Frank said that the new Radeon RX 7900 XTX is crafted to compete with the RTX 4080 and the primary reason why there were not any Nvidia GeForce RTX series GPUs at all in the charts for contrast is due to the fact that they did not have any RTX 4080 benchmark numbers.
GeForce RTX 4080 Will Be Coming With 16GB of GDDR6X Memory
And to bring you up to speed, the GeForce RTX 4080 will be coming with 16GB of GDDR6X memory and will start at $1,199 which is around £1,042 or AU$1850, which is $400 less than the RTX 4090. But however, AMD will be offering more VRAM on the $899 Radeon RX 7900 XT (20GB GDDR6) and the same VRAM just as the RTX 4090 with the $999 Radeon RX 7900 XTX, which is approximately £870 or AU$1540 and will have 24GB GDDR6.
