Deal Alert: AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX More Powerful Than RTX 4080, $260 Cheaper

If you’re after 4K gaming, you’re bound to need a powerful graphics card. NVIDIA makes his excellent 4K capable video cards masquerading as his RTX 4080 and 4090, but we’re fed up with NVIDIA’s price gouging. The 4080 is priced at $1,200 and the 4090 is priced at $1,600.What if I told you there was an Option 3 that was just as good and nearly $300 cheaper? AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPU.

XFX AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX Video Card (Better than RTX 4080) $929.99

The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX is AMD’s flagship card and it’s mean enough to take on the very powerful GeForce RTX 40 series cards. In fact, it beats the $1199 GeForce RTX 4080 for most games. It also has a higher amount of VRAM (24 GB vs. 18 GB), making it suitable for 3D work as well. The RTX 4080 certainly wins in ray tracing and DLSS performance, but for a card currently selling for $930 on Amazon, or $260 less than the 4080, it’s a pretty nice win.

If you want ray tracing, stick with NVIDIA

AMD Radeon cards are a great alternative to NVIDIA GeForce cards both in terms of price and availability. For most gamers looking to maximize performance without breaking the bank, these AMD GPUs are a great fit. However, Ray recommends sticking with NVIDIA if he intends to play 4K games with tracing enabled. Because when it comes to ray tracing, the GeForce card clearly outperforms the Radeon card. Ray tracing is a rendering format that allows for more realistic lighting effects. Lights and shadows look better, but consume a lot of GPU resources. After all, if you really want ray tracing, you’ll have to shell out the extra money. Is it really worth getting the extra lighting effects? That’s up to you.
