AMD Radeon 7000 Launch Live Blog: The Next Gen GPU War Begins Now

Update

Well, that’s all for me. I’m passing things along to our US team right now, but I’ll be watching along with everyone else to see what Nvidia has in store for us in just under an hour, and I’m really hoping it’s an exciting day for gamers everywhere. places. Take care everyone!

We definitely expect AMD to show off some more affordable cards today as well. While we don’t expect to see an RX 7700 XT or an RX 7600 XT today, these are still some of the most anticipated GPUs on our list as we’d love to see more affordable graphics cards like the Intel Arc A770.

We haven’t been able to test this GPU on our own yet, but by all accounts it appears to be a solid graphics card and not for a lot of money. We’re in the midst of an ongoing cost-of-living crisis, so any price advantage AMD can bring to the table would be welcomed by many PC gamers out there.

Nvidia has been the market leader for graphics cards pretty much since the beginning, and AMD, while competitive, has always been in second place. With recent Nvidia issues, particularly reports of melted power adapter cables, AMD has made a point of emphasizing that it is sticking to the standard 8-pin connectors that most power supplies already have.

There are also concerns about power usage, with Nvidia’s RTX 4090 absorbing nearly half a kW. As we’ve seen with the AMD Ryzen 7000 series chips, AMD has made some advances in the area of ​​energy efficiency that we find very encouraging. Hopefully the new Radeon GPUs will keep this trend going.

Given all the power issues we’ve seen in the UK and elsewhere, I think AMD’s attention to power usage is a commendable approach and could be a huge asset in their struggle with Nvidia and Intel.

If you want to keep the excitement going, check out our list of the best current AMD graphics cards.

Right now, Radeon RX 6800 is our pick as AMD’s best overall GPU. Will the GPUs that AMD showcases today knock it out of the top spot? We certainly hope so.

The name of the event is ‘together we advance_gaming’, so we expect to hear a lot about how these GPUs bring performance improvements and exciting features to the latest PC games.

This is the latest in a series of events hosted by AMD, and a week later, AMD will host the slightly less exciting ‘together we advance_data centers’ on November 10th.

Well, our friends at Pro will be excited, anyway.
