Nvidia’s next-gen graphics cards Geforce RTX 4090 24GB and RTX 4080 16GB now have serious competition from AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX 24GB and RX 7900 XT 20GB. According to the PCGH test, AMD’s new top graphics card RX 7900 XTX outperforms its competitors Geforce RTX 4080 and also offers a lower price. If you want to buy the new graphics card, you will currently only find offers on eBay, but the Radeon RX 7900 XT can be ordered for just over the RRP, as our new Radeon market overview of the cheapest graphics card offers shows.
Recently, the prices for Radeon graphics cards have only fallen slightly, but after you could already benefit from significant price reductions in the past few weeks if you wanted to buy a graphics card with a Radeon GPU on it. The new Radeon RX 7900 XT 20GB, which was released just a few days ago, is probably one of the most sought-after. It can currently be ordered at prices starting at 1,069 euros, which is only 20 euros above the recommended retail price, as our new Radeon market overview shows.

After rumors arose that AMD’s RDNA3 GPUs do not support shader prefetch, the company responded with a statement. Accordingly, the function is definitely activated on the RX-7000 graphics cards. On the other hand, the code segment that indicated a malfunction is said to relate to an experimental function intended for the future. Specifically, the method published by Kepler is intended to return the available size of the prefetch. If it is an RDNA3 GPU with revision 0 (chip numbers 1100 to 1103), the size returned is zero, which disables the feature. From this it was quickly concluded that the prefetch is deactivated on the entire generation and thus performance is wasted. According to AMD, however, this is not the case. The company quickly responded with a statement that the shader prefetch works on the RDNA3 GPUs and thus on all RX 7000 graphics cards. The affected code function is said to be used only for an experimental feature that will only be used in future Radeon generations. According to AMD, this approach of testing future features on current hardware is standard in the industry.
