Summary

The AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT is a decent option to get into high-end 1440p gaming – the generous amount of VRAM for its class helps strengthen that case.

Overall
8.2/10
8.2/10

Pros

+ Decent 1440p performance
+ Near-silent fans
+ PCIe connectors for wider PSU compatibility
+ 16GB VRAM provides good level of futureproofing
+ Solid value for performance

Cons

– Power efficiency (FPS/watt) falls behind RTX 4070
– Middling ray tracing performance

It took a while – but AMD’s high-end GPU lineup is finally complete with the launch of the new Radeon RX 7800 XT. The statement of intent? AMD wants to undercut NVIDIA’s GPU pricing which, as everyone can see, is far from friendly for a while now. The Radeon card aims its sights to the RTX 4070, an impressively-efficient GPU that’s capable of 4K gaming in some cases. Can the 7800 XT be the alternative that hurts your bank less for the same capabilities when the next upgrade cycle comes?
