Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has announced its next generation of graphics cards, the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT, which are the first cards powered by its new architecture, RDNA 3.

Both cards will launch on December 13th, with both AMD’s reference cards and board partner models set to ship on that date. The 7900 XTX will cost $999, and the XT is $100 cheaper at $899.

The RX 7900 XT is a less powerful option — it has 84 compute units running at 2Ghz, 20GB of GDDR6 memory running at a slightly slower 320 bits, and a board power of 300W.

The company says it’s using GDDR6 memory instead of GDDR6X for both cards, mainly because it uses less power. You won’t need to use any special power connectors or adapters, as both cards will require two regular 8-pin connectors. Nvidia opted for a new 12VHPWR connector for the 4090 and has had problems with those melting, an issue that the company is still investigating.
