Recently, the company AMD A new article published on his blog and compared his Radeon RX 7000/6000 graphics cards. It’s only natural that the new RX 7000 RDNA 3 graphics cards are at the top of the charts, but sometimes the performance of two graphics cards doesn’t match the price difference. For example, the Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics card is only 7% faster than the Radeon RX 6950 XT graphics card, while being about 30% more expensive.
Is RX 7900 XT or RX 6950 XT worth more?
The charts published by AMD put the company’s RX 6000 RDNA 2 and RX 7000 RDNA 3 graphics cards together, and you can see all the cards of these two series at a glance. Radeon RX 7900 XT/XTX graphics cards are more value for money than their main competitors i.e. RTX 4080/4090 cards and offer better performance for the price, but still the value of buying high-end graphics cards of the previous generation such as Radeon RX 6950 XT is far from generation New is higher.
The difference between old and new generation cards in low resolutions such as 1080p is less than in higher resolutions and the value of buying old cards in this resolution increases. AMD company used the latest market prices to compare the purchase value of cards and not MSRPs; As a result, the Radeon RX 6950 XT graphics card is currently a $699 card and offers an average of 338 fps. On the other hand, we have the $899 Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics card, which has an average frame rate of 355.
According to these figures, the performance difference between the two graphics cards is 5%, but their price difference is 29%. Because of this, the older Radeon RX 6900 graphics cards are worth much more than the new Radeon RX 7900 series.
AMD, of course, did not include the Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card in this comparison, a flagship graphics card that can even be had for $649. Of course, the stock of this graphic card is not that high and finding a healthy and new sample of it is generally a difficult task, so its presence in such a comparison may not be correct.
RTX 4070 Ti, the cheapest RTX 40 card to date
Independent reviews of various media show that the purchase value of RX 7900 and RX 6900 graphics cards is much higher than RTX 40 cards. The cheapest RTX 40 graphics card and closest to the RDNA 2/RDNA 3 cards in terms of price is the RTX 4070 Ti, which still isn’t worth buying as much as a graphics card like the Radeon RX 6800:
The pricing of new models has become so stable that AMD and Nvidia companies have to plan to release more economical and cheaper models from the RX 7000 and RTX 40 families. This will only happen if the current stock of old-generation graphics cards runs out – which has not happened so far, and there are still many stocks of old-generation graphics cards in stores waiting to be sold.
