AMD launches RX 7900 GRE graphics card globally


While AMD RX 7900 GRE was initially launched only for the Chinese market, it is now available worldwide. It’s a direct competitor to Nvidia RTX 4070 Super.

Months ago, AMD released the Radeon RX 7900 GRE graphics card for the Chinese market. While it was slowly getting available in other countries too, it wasn’t available everywhere.

In a blog post, AMD has officially announced the worldwide launch of the RX 7900 GRE graphics card. It would be available starting February 27.

The RX 7900 GRE graphics card will cost $549, which is a $100 cheaper than what it was originally launched at. It features a cut-down version of the Navi 31 GPU, the same GPU found in the RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT graphics card.

It also fills the gap between RX 7800 XT and RX 7900 XT, which are priced at $499 and $899 respectively. Basically, there was a difference of $400 between them and the RX 7900 GRE graphics card fills it.

Specs & Comparison

In terms of specs, RX 7900 GRE comes with 80 Compute Units, 5120 Steam Processors, 160 AI Accelerators and 16GB VRAM running at the speed of 18Gbps with 256-bit bus. The base clock of it is 1880MHz, the boost clock is 2245MHz. It also comes with 64MB of 2nd Gen Infinity Cache. The TBP is 260W. It also comes with DisplayPort 2.1 and AV1 hardware encoding support. As one can see, all specs are cut-down from the more expensive RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT.

In terms of comparison, it is directly comparing the RX 7900 GRE with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 (non-SUPER) graphics card. Claiming it’s 14% faster than the RTX 4070 in the selective benchmarks.

AMD is quick to point out how RTX 4070 is similarly priced but is slower than RX 7900 GRE and comes with just 12GB VRAM.

It is also comparing the RX 7900 GRE with Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER graphics card when used with HYPR-RX and AMD Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF) technology, which is a driver level upscaling version of FSR 3.

Reviews And Availability

Many reviewers have reviewed the AMD Radeon RX 7900 GRE. However, as always, the best reviews come from TechPowerUP, TechSpot (Hardware Unboxed video on YouTube) and Tom’s Hardware. VideoCardz has a full list of reviewers who have reviewed the card.

As per TechPowerUP, RX 7900 GRE is 12% faster than RX 7800 XT, 5% faster than the RTX 4070 SUPER and 9% slower than RTX 4070 Ti SUPER at 1440p. What’s interesting is, as per them, it’s faster than the RTX 4070 than what AMD claims.

TechSpot claims it’s just 5% faster than RX 7800 XT, 3% slower than RTX 4070 SUPER and 16% slower than RTX 4070 Ti SUPER at 1440p Though this difference could also be due to different games tested.

Tom’s Hardware puts RX 7900 GRE in similar speed as RTX 4070 SUPER. Though it found it to be 8% faster than RX 7800 XT and 10% slower than RTX 4070 Ti SUPER in raster performance at 1440p. Though, the ray tracing performance is a lot slower in the AMD offerings when compared to Nvidia ones.

In terms of availability, AMD claims that the likes of Acer, ASRock, ASUS, GIGABYTE, PowerColor, Sapphire and XFX will launch their variants. Though Acer and ASUS would launch them a bit later in March.

Overall, the AMD Radeon RX 7900 GRE graphics card is interesting. Specifically because of its price rather than its performance. It would need to be seen how it well it sells now that it’s launched worldwide.
