Why you can trust Tom's Hardware  Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

We've tested the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT, and we have the full results ready for your enjoyment — one day before the official launch party. AMD's latest and greatest RDNA 3 architecture and the RX 7900-Series graphics cards are all set to party with Nvidia's Ada Lovelace architecture and the GeForce RTX 4080 as they vie for a spot on our list of the best graphics cards.
One thing AMD won't do: Take down the GeForce RTX 4090 that sits at the top of our GPU benchmarks hierarchy. AMD has said that it doesn't feel the need to compete directly against a $1,600 (or more!) graphics card, but several senior people at AMD also indicate that Nvidia's AD102 chip was "bigger than expected" and basically out of reach.What may also be out of reach for many of our readers are the new AMD RX 7900-series cards. While they cost less than Nvidia's RTX 4090 and 4080, with prices starting at $899 for the slower — and frankly less desirable — RX 7900 XT, these are clearly not going after the mainstream gamer market. That task will likely fall to the future Navi 32 / RX 7700-series cards (or maybe 7800-series). For now, if you want AMD's fastest ever consumer graphics card, be prepared to fork over a wad of cash.We've already done an in-depth look at the RDNA 3 architecture and a preview of the cards, so start with those articles if you want to get up to speed. With actual hardware in hand and a bevy of benchmarks under our belts, that's the main event today. But we do have some additional thoughts, and we'll start as always with the specifications of AMD's latest cards, with Nvidia and some previous generation GPUs for comparison.
