During Gamescom, AMD unveiled its latest graphics cards, the Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT. These new cards are powered by the AMD RDNA 3 architecture, delivering impressive performance specifically tailored for the 1440p gaming experience. Additionally, the company introduced the new version of the popular upscaling technology, FidelityFX Super Resolution, known as FidelityFX Super Resolution 3.
These new graphics cards leverage AMD’s RDNA 3 architecture to provide high performance and visual accuracy. The Radeon RX 7800 XT comes with 16GB of high-speed GDDR6 VRAM, while the Radeon RX 7700 XT offers 12GB of VRAM. Both cards deliver up to 50% higher memory bandwidth than their competitors, ideal for high-resolution gaming.
Enhancing performance and visual fidelity to a new level, these graphics cards feature technologies like AMD HYPR-RX. Notably, AI accelerators optimized for artificial intelligence workloads and advanced encoders that offer improved streaming quality stand out in this new series. Moreover, integrated into the AMD Media Framework, content-adaptive machine learning technology allows for sharp text even at low bit rates.
AMD’s new graphics cards are particularly significant for 1440p gaming. Specifically, the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT boasts 60 AMD RDNA 3 compute units, providing roughly 20% more performance compared to rivals. Similarly, the AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT features 54 RDNA 3 compute units, delivering 20% higher performance compared to competitors.
The next-gen FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 3 technology from AMD is notable for its temporal upscaling technique. This enables substantial FPS increases in games while maintaining clear and high-resolution image quality.
In general, AMD’s new graphics cards and upscaling technology not only enhance the 1440p gaming experience but also introduce new possibilities for high-resolution multimedia experiences. These new graphics cards significantly elevate performance, visual quality, and overall gaming experience.
