AMD’s mid-tier offerings from the Radeon RX 7000 series have made their way into the headlines to reclaim the battlefield of 1440p gaming.
Blessed with 60 CUs and 54 CUs, the RDNA 3-based RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT are given 16GB and 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM so that you can stuff more textures and effects into your games without worrying much.
In terms of game clocks, these cards are rated at 2124MHz and 2171MHz, while the bus sizes stand at 256-bit and 128-bit, accompanied by 64MB and 48MB of 2nd-gen Infinity Cache. The combined power draw for both cards is 263W and 245W, on the other hand.
Being part of the 7000 series, expect core features like AV1 encoding/decoding, AMD Radiance Engine, and FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) within them.
Speaking of FSR, version 3.0 has made its debut, introducing the new AMD Fluid Motion Frames technology and utilizing game motion vector data to enhance FPS for FSR-supported games.
While there might be limited test data available initially, AMD has already announced that Forspoken and Immortals of Aveum will soon support FSR, and an additional 10 games are expected to receive FSR in the coming months. The official notes confirm over 300 supporting titles.
The package also brings the latest iteration of temporal upscaling technology to the big “3”, with the standout feature being the new “Native AA” mode focused on maximizing fidelity.
This mode prioritizes anti-aliasing and sharpening while bypassing upscaling, resulting in improvements ranging from slight to substantial. In specific cases, it might significantly enhance image quality in games with subpar AA options.
A noteworthy addition is the reduced latency provided by AMD Anti Lag+ which works in conjunction with frame generation and Native AA for smoother gameplay and enhanced visual quality.
Notably, FSR 3.0 isn’t exclusive to AMD; it’s “cross-compatible,” so fellow Jensen supporters can have a slice of the pie if they wanted to.
All of these software enhancements will be activated in the latest Software: Adrenalin Edition driver pack upon the cards’ release, so keep an eye out if you’re part of the AMD GPU community.
The AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT will be made available starting from September 6 at the recommended price of USD 499 and USD 449 respectively.
