AMD RDNA 3 custom graphics cards may follow in the pricey footsteps of Nvidia. Away from that, third-party quicker models of the 7900 XT and XTX also could be arriving late.
AMD RDNA 3 Custom Graphics Cards May Follow In the Pricey Footsteps of Nvidia
Custom RX 7000 graphics cards from third-party card makers are now set to launch very much later than the reference boards. And it also may be very costly to boot, if the latest rumors from the GPU grapevine are anything to be believed.
VideoCardz recently reported that the Board channels forum which is in china claims that the only RX 7900 XT and 7900 XTX graphics cards to initially emerge on the launch day of AMD will be the reference board.
The Latter Third Party Variants Will Not Be Debuting Until a Week or Two
Those however are the ones that are built to the reference spec of AMD, but there also be models with much beefier configurations, better cooling, and higher clocks as it is usual. The latter third-party variants however will not be debuting until a week or two after the reference boards are pushed back into shelves.
That would however point to an on-sale date of towards the end of December for these custom boards and as you should know, maybe things might get delayed to the beginning of 2023 seeing that late December is a tad bit of an odd place in regards to timing.
Are The Rumors True?
You should however treat all of these with a great deal of caution as with many other speculations, as the Chinese source s kind of worrying, further asserts that the custom boards may be much more expensive in contrast to the initial reference models.
