• $200 less than 4080 and $600 less than 4090.
• Ray tracing matches 3090 but lags behind RTX 40
• Audible (but not overly loud) fan noise due to small

• High power draw.
For hundreds of dollars less, AMD’S Radeon RX 7900 XTX both sprints past the RTX 4080 and challenges the RTX 4090—it can sometimes beat Nvidia’s best GPU. Its compact reference design and use of traditional 8-pin power connectors lets it fit into most PCS easily as well. AMD’S latest also offers acceptable ray-tracing performance, though Nvidia holds its lead. The XTX isn’t perfect—some sporadic bugs did appear during our tests—but overall it’s a very good card without a price premium over last gen.
