AMD’s next GPU just leaked, and it could give Nvidia trouble

Just a day after AMD announced its plans to launch new Radeon 7000 desktop GPUs at its quarterly earnings call, we’ve got credible information on one of the upcoming models. AMD GPU board partner PowerColor briefly posted a listing for its upcoming Radeon RX 7800 XT with complete specifications before pulling down the page.

The listing was spotted by Twitter user @All_The_Watts who had previously shared alleged performance numbers for the RX 7700 and RX7800. According to the page, the PowerColor RX 7800 XT ‘Red Devil’ graphics card will feature 3840 stream processors, 60 compute units, and a 256-bit memory interface with 576GB/s bandwidth. It will feature 16GB of GDDR6 memory and offer boost clock speeds that can go up to 2,565 MHz in OC mode.

While there’s no confirmation on the power consumption, we do know that the GPU will come with two 8-pin PCIe power connectors. PowerColor does recommend an 800W power supply unit as the minimum. Considering the previous-gen Radeon RX 6800 XT came with a power rating of 300W with two power connectors, we can expect anything between 250-300W. Like most modern GPUs, this one is also listed to have four video out ports including three DisplayPort 2.1 and one HDMI 2.1.

The product listing page also includes a notice that says, “The entire information provided herein are for reference only. PowerColor reserves the right to modify or revise the content at any time without prior notice.” Essentially, the page could very well be a placeholder until AMD officially announces the graphics card. Thus, it is best to not heighten your expectations.

As for the price, we don’t have any indicators, but if AMD can target the $600 to $650 mark then it could give Nvidia’s RTX 40-series a run for its money. We’ve already seen how impressive the RX 7900 XT and the 7900 XTX are, and if AMD can keep the momentum going, we could have a new entry on the list of the best graphics cards.

AMD's graphics card lineup for laptops is on the way, and by the sound of it, it's shaping up to be pretty exciting -- and it's already bigger than Team Red's current desktop range.

According to a recent leak, AMD may even be able to rival Nvidia's best desktop GPUs with its Navi 32 cards. But where are the desktop equivalents?

3 reasons you should still buy an Nvidia GPU over AMD
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 lays on a pink surface.

We all love to cheer for the underdog -- a position AMD relishes in the GPU space. That's especially true when Nvidia continues to increase its prices to astronomic new heights. More than that, when going to buy a new graphics card for your system, there are some legitimate reasons to go Team Red.

And yet, there's a reason Nvidia continues to dominate. As much as I hate to admit it, right now, there's no question that Nvidia has the upper hand.

AMD Radeon RX 6500XT graphics cards stacked on top of each other.

After months of silence, it seems that AMD might be readying a new graphics card -- but it's not the one most of us expected to see.

Instead of following the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT with an RX 7800 XT, AMD appears to be moving down a couple of notches. Rumor has it that its next GPU will be the RX 7600.
