Sapphire Pulse AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT Video Card for $709.99
For the price, this is easily the most powerful GPU you can buy. The RX 7900 XT offers greater performance than any previous generation card released, including NVIDIA cards like the RTX 3090 and 3090 Ti . It’s a bit faster than the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti (ray tracing aside) and approaches the RTX 4080, but it’s also cheaper than the RTX 4070 Ti. It comes equipped with a very generious 20GB of VRAM, which is more than both the RTX 4070 Ti or the RTX 4080, so performance scales well with increased resolution.
Better value than NVIDIA, if you don’t care about ray tracing
AMD Radeon cards are outstanding alternatives to the NVIDIA GeForce cards in terms of both price and availability. For most gamers who want to maximize their performance for their dollar, AMD GPUs are the way to go. However, if you’re set on playing 4K games with ray tracing enabled, then you’ll want to stick with NVIDIA. That’s because the GeForce cards admittedly perform far better than their Radeon counterparts when it comes to ray tracing. Ray tracing is a form of rendering that allows for more realstic lighting effects. It makes light sources and shadows look better, but at the steep cost of GPU resources.
