A few days ago, AMD launched the Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT GPUs. The RX 7800 XT has now become the bestseller in Germany’s Mindfactory.
About 15 days ago, AMD announced Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT graphics cards along with many other important things like an update on the FSR3.
A few days ago, both the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT were released to the public. Along with the release came the reviews from the various hardware review sites.
As far as the reviews themselves are concerned, the reviews for the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT were good, but for the RX 7700 XT they were lackluster.
In them, the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT was praised for an increase of in raytracing performance and an improvement in power efficiency over its predecessor, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT.
However, what’s important about the RX 7800 XT is that while its raster performance is similar to that of the RX 6800 XT, its the pricing that is the most attractive feature of the RX 7800 XT.
While the RX 6800 XT had an MSRP of $649, it’s selling around $500 now. So as the RX 7800 XT is priced at the same $500 with some additional improvements, it basically replaces the RX 6800 XT, even if it’s similar in raster performance.
If raytracing performance and power usage are ignored, the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT is also a great alternative to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070, which sells for $600. That’s because the RX 7800 XT is faster than the RTX 4070 in overall graphics card’s raster performance.
The RX 7700 XT, however, didn’t get that much a praise. For it being just $50 cheaper and the pricing not being worth it.
But the question is, how well are these new graphics cards selling? Now we have some ideas about it.
RX 7800 XT Becomes Top-Seller
Twitter (now X Corp) based user, @TechEpiphany has, as always, shared the list of the previous week’s best-selling graphics cards from one of Germany’s largest retailers, Mindfactory.
That list shows the list of top-selling graphics cards in the week that the RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT launched.
As per the list, the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT was the best-selling graphics card on MindFactory. Over 650 AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT graphics cards were sold.
This was followed by the likes of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070, the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and others.
The RX 7700 XT however, was relatively far behind. It is 18th on the list, with just 55 graphics cards sold on it.
One important thing should be mentioned. The RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT were launched on Friday. Yet, it managed to top the previous week’s list. That is massively impressive. Whether this includes pre-orders (if any) or not, we don’t know. But even then, it’s big.
The second important thing that should be mentioned is that these days Germany is an AMD friendly country. What this means is that the Germans prefer to buy AMD graphics cards and CPUs over Nvidia graphics cards and Intel CPUs these days. This is also highlighted in the other top CPUs sold list by @TechEpiphany, where AMD leads massively over Intel.
So the new AMD graphics cards being sold in high numbers is not a surprise. But Germans are not naive when it comes to tech or engineering, for that matter. They know a lot when it comes to these things. It is, however, surprising that the RX 7800 XT is topping the list within the first few days itself.
Now we don’t know if this continues this week too. In fact, we believe the numbers will improve further. Whatever it maybe. It’s impressive that the RX 7800 XT is doing so nicely there.
