Official AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series (RDNA 3) Thread

is the Asus TUF even out yet ?
i haven't seen it listed yet or a price


or any MSI 7900 XT/X listed :hmm:

with even the PowerColor RED DEVIL RX7900XTX 24G-E/OC/LIMITED at 1099 and only 1500 cards, AMD must be stepping on the AIB's on price
only seen a asrock with a full waterblock more at 1449

and no Strix yet
i would love to see a Asus 7900 xtx Poseidon

Ya no TUF up here yet its just the ref asus and no msi either. Most AIB are reference models tho we are seeing the custom Powercolor, Asrock and Saphirre listed. read that the 200k number is what they are shifting between release and end of January.

that would be an average of ~20k a week
 
Well, haven't gamed on it yet. Maybe this weekend I'll find some time.

It's reference model, MBA = Made By AMD I believe.

Nice reference model looks good!

Another AIB model tested at TPU:

Maximum Overclock ComparisonAvg. GPU ClockMax. Memory ClockPerformance
AMD RX 7900 XT 2663 MHz 2750 MHz 269.3 FPS
AMD RX 7900 XTX 2930 MHz 2750 MHz 305.5 FPS
ASUS RX 7900 XTX TUF3199 MHz2800 MHz347.9 FPS
Sapphire RX 7900 XTX Nitro+ 3174 MHz 2800 MHz 344.5 FPS
XFX RX 7900 Merc 310 3165 MHz 2750 MHz 339.3 FPS

Saphirre Nitro getting 3.174 ghz at TPU looks like the oc arent a fluke with 3 tested AIB models now over 3 ghz.

It appears A0 silicon does in-fact have a silicon flaw which was supposed to be recovered in drivers. That being said, clearly its not. We now have /multiple/ sources of AIBs hitting over 3ghz. This doesn't make any sense. Either AMD is completely oblivious to this, or they really wanted to market lower power cards. But why, maybe to give AIB more headroom, but again.. Why?

That being said, I went from skipping this generation (have a 3070 Ti), to now thinking 7900XTX AIB is the play. Once a few more reviews come out, and they are available, assuming they aren't $400 more than mba the 4090, and 4080 are in some serious trouble.

I really don't understand why AMD wouldn't take advantage of this though. Why are the MBAs so much lower on power and clocks. 7950 XTX room?​
 
MBA's can oc ok up to 2.9 ghz but the cooler is way inferior to AIB models. GN had a teardown and it was obvious its a pretty basic cooler and being smaller for smaller builds which makes sense for AMD to have done for some markets.

Im not sure about that AO silicon issue its listed under drivers but some on reddit have said its typical early silicon that is worked on by engineers so the driver was just adjusted for that early buggy tape out. Probably they have a one size fits all driver that kept support for the early AO stepping if it was still being worked on when the retail release version came out.

Reddit thread about it here:

Agree. Would like to know whether your sample has significant coil whine like GN's did. And also if you can check for power spikes and idle power usage.
 
Sadly it seems the 7900 XTX is another paper launch in the UK. Nothing available anywhere, There are a few XT models but retailing for over £100+ MSRP. Total joke really they just never learn which makes you wonder why you want to support AMD. Whilst I don't need one, if one was available for MSRP NOW I would buy it. I'm not in a rush I'll wait 6 months until the price drops £100 to the level it should be priced at because they can't sell them in volume. Until then happy with my 3090. Game on.

Why would feel the need to upgrade? 3090 should be ample for some time...

This might settle that:

And AMD speaks on the issue of the prefetcher:

https://www.tomshardware.com/news/a...tm_campaign=socialflow&utm_source=twitter.com

Reports that AMD's RDNA 3 GPUs have broken shader pre-fetch functionality aren't accurate, according to a statement that AMD issued to Tom's Hardware:

"Like previous hardware generations, shader pre-fetching is supported on RDNA 3 as per [gitlab link(opens in new tab)]. The code in question controls an experimental function which was not targeted for inclusion in these products and will not be enabled in this generation of product. This is a common industry practice to include experimental features to enable exploration and tuning for deployment in a future product generation." — AMD Spokesperson to Tom's Hardware.

Do all cards have coil whine? Seems most reviewers are having it even with AIB cards. Did someone on this forum also have coil whine?
 
I don't have cw on general, but i have noticed some when the intro to Deus Ex Mankind Divided played. (Yeah, i like the game). The few games I've tested, CP2077, outer worlds and Metro Exodus Enhanced I haven't noticed any particular CW.
 
So it is high fps whine only. What fps was the intro playing at? 200, 300, 500? Just checking when does it start?
 
Interesting tip here to try out looks like MBA reference models of the 7900 run a lot cooler when gpu is vertical vs horizontal.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/zso6ww/amd_7900xtx_junction_temp_falls_when_vertical/

Hello all! Playing borderlands 3 with an open case with a 7900 XTX ordered right from AMD.com. The card has max junction temps and max fan speed constantly while playing in the normal horizontal position. If I lay the PC on its side and the GPU sits in the VERTICAL position, the junction temps never exceed 70 degrees! Obviously something physically wrong with this cooler? Any advice? Thanks!

A few other posters chimed in on this and got good temps reductions...​
 
At least there's an easy possible solution... if it worked I wouldnt bother an RMA about it.

You're thinking of washers, like with Radeon VII?

I must admit I did it with Radeon VII, but that card was "only" around 700USD...

Or tilting the case? My problem with tilting is that I use a ssupd Meshlicious, so if I tilt it with GPU fans upwards, if I understood the reddit-fix correctly, the CPU block will "hang". But maybe that's not a big issue?
