Next Radeon RX 7000 Graphics Cards To Be Revealed at Gamescom

The latest AMD RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT graphics cards could be revealed at Gamescom in Germany next week after a reveal of a major product announcement at the event.

AMD To Reveal RX 7000 Series Cards at Gamescom

AMD’s Scott Herkelman, Senior VP & General Manager of the Graphics Business Unit has confirmed that the company will be making some major product announcements at Gamescom which runs from August 22nd through to August 27th. On AMD’s website, it states that the company will be making a presentation on Friday the 25th at 12am in Hall 7 which will include 8 hours of gaming entertainment, giveaways, sweepstakes, and testing of the latest FSR-enabled games. The full program of the show places the AMD Highlight Show at 17:00 – 17:30 with Herkelman which will likely be where we could see the reveal.

What Do We Know Already?

Currently the RX 7800 XT & RX 7700 XT cards are expected to launch within Q3 which aids the likelihood of an announcement at Gamescom but we also have significant information on the RX 7800 XT thanks to the mistake that PowerColor made by listing their product page for the Red Devil card a few weeks ago.

This card is expected to feature use the Navi 32 XT chip with 3840 Stream Processors and a boost clock of 2.5GHz. It will be accompanied by 16GB of GDDR6 memory with a 256-bit bus. Alternatively, the RX 7700 XT is a bit more hidden as it hasn’t seen a similar leak but we are expecting it to feature 12GB of GDDR6 with a 192-bit bus.

Hopefully next week we should see the full reveal surrounding these cards and maybe they will be accompanied by good value for money. Currently, the RX 7600 isn’t a great choice due to its weak memory and lack of bandwidth, something that we made pretty clear in our day one review which you can find below.

On top of that, the likes of the RX 7900 XT launched and was a bit overpriced for its performance offering though has dropped in price currently ranging from £750-825 on Amazon. For these new cards to be considered, they’ve got to offer a much better value for money especially considering GPU releases in 2023 haven’t exactly had consumers going crazy as both AMD and NVIDIA seem to be missing the point when it comes to generational uplift and that all important value for money aspect, though hearing rumours around the $599 mark doesn’t leave me with much hope, and it potentially goes to show just how out of touch the likes of AMD really are in today’s market.

If the new GPUs are priced at $599, is that enough to warrant you picking one up and what will AMD have to offer in terms of performance to make it a viable option, especially considering the RTX 4070 from NVIDIA comes in with the exact same price point? Are we talking 1440p gaming only with the hopes being pinned on FSR with frame generation? Though in terms of that, team red have been extremely quiet, so maybe it’s not ready, especially compared to NVIDIA’s DLSS3 which is still making huge strides, though even then, not everyone is sold on upscaling technology as a whole and consider it as “fake frames”.

I guess time will tell, but either way, let us know your thoughts below.
