AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT Now Costs $830 US, 8% Less Than MSRP, Its Lowest Price Yet


The US price of AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XT Custom Model has dropped to $829.99 at Newegg.

There are already a number of AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards that are less than their MSRP, but it appears that one custom variant in particular has gone to its lowest price ever. This model, the ASRock Radeon RX 7900 XT Phantom Gaming, has a 2.5 slot form factor and a premium cooling system with three fans.

The card was previously listed at $879.99 US, but it appears like Newegg has opted to further reduce the price down to just $829.99 US. This represents an 8% discount from its MSRP and now takes it closer to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti MSRP, which retails at a starting price of $799.99 US. It appears that there may be a valid explanation for the substantial decrease in prices.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti continues to be a popular pick, followed by the RTX 4080 in third place, according to the most recent graphics card retail figures from Mindfactory (provided by Techepiphany).

Only about half as many copies of the Radeon RX 7900 XT were sold as the same NVIDIA card, and from what we’ve heard, sales internationally don’t seem to be doing that well either. It’s possible that AMD is attempting to attract gamers to the RDNA 3 GPU by slashing prices and making recent cuts within China. Although the high-end Radeon RX 7900 XTX costs more, it appears to sell reasonably well, so it will be interesting to see if it receives a similar treatment in terms of price reduction.
