AMD has lifted the review embargo for the AMD Radeon RX 7900XTX, and below you can find some third-party gaming benchmarks for it. From what we can see, the new AMD GPU is faster than the NVIDIA RTX4080 in rasterized games. However, in Ray Tracing games, the NVIDIA counterpart is noticeably faster.
Kitguru reports that the AMD Radeon RX 7900XTX is faster in games like Cyberpunk 2077, Far Cry 6 and Total War: Warhammer III.
Similarly, Guru3D reports that AMD’s latest GPU is faster in games like Forza Horizon 5, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
As said, though, things are not looking that great once you enable Ray Tracing. PCGamesHardware reports that the RX 7900XT is noticeably slower than the RTX4080 in RT games like Cyberpunk 2077, Dying Light 2 and The Riftbreaker.
So basically, this is exactly what we were expecting/guessing from this new AMD GPU. The good news for consumers is that the RX 7900XT is cheaper than the RTX4080. As such, NVIDIA may lower the price of that particular GPU in order to maintain its market share.
Lastly, you can also find below the video reviews for this GPU from HardwareUnboxed, GamersNexus and LinusTechTips.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
