AMD RX 7800, RX 7700 and RX 7600 GPUs are delayed to 618
Filtering the performance as such of the RTX 40 for laptops, with the deployment of the RX 7000 Mobile shortly, the imminent arrival of the RTX 4070 in its different versions and later, but very close, the RTX 4060, you would have to ask AMD , where are the RX 7800, RX 7700 and RX 7600 for PC? Well, as it seems and leaks, Lisa Su’s company has prepared a totally different move than what we are used to and it seems that everything is going through a delay.
The RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX were introduced on November 3 of last year and released to stores on December 13, 2022. We’re going into March 2023 shortly, which isn’t a long GAP if we look back. , the problem is that AMD lags behind NVIDIA as of today, and apparently he’s in no hurry to close the gap and catch up.
A collective attack by NVIDIA that will not have a quick response
NVIDIA’s coup has never been seen before on such a scale. All the RTX 40 Mobile will arrive in an extremely short period of time, almost in weekly installments as comics used to arrive, while their response, the RX 7700S, RX 7600M and RX 7600S they are also close. But of course, on PC we are suffering the consequences of poor sales through an unusual slowdown in products on the market.
The high stock that there is currently, despite the fact that shipments were low, is the perfect scenario so that neither AMD, nor NVIDIA, nor Intel, are in any rush to launch new models, in short, they may not be sold… But then , where are the RX 7800, RX 7700 and RX 7600 of PC? Because except for the last two, the first one should arrive as quickly as possible simply to cover the RTX 4070 in sales… Or maybe not.
There are hardly any rumors, a bad omen for what is to come?
Perhaps the uncertainty is the worst. There are no tangible performance or feature rumors, not even erroneous or far-fetched… Except for one somewhat complex one. And it is that NVIDIA’s massive attack with all its GPUs will have an equally massive response from AMD, since there is high speculation that the company wants to delay the three models and its supposed variants after the first quarter of this year and thus not pigeonhole them as a release for the economic data for that period, which they already expect be nefarious.
Therefore, both the RX 7800, as well as the RX 7700 and RX 7600 on PC, will arrive at a very close and specific point, to be specific, the event 618. And what is this exactly? It is one of the biggest e-commerce events in the first half of the year in China and usually takes place between April and June of each year.
This makes sense if one understands that there are two economies that are having a “less bad time” than the rest: the US and China, with the difference that Asians triple the population (and potential sales) of Americans. There is a lot of speculation about the reason for this date, it is even estimated possible problems with the Navi 32 and Navi 33 chips as such for a low performancewhich would have to be compensated, according to what is stated, with very well optimized drivers and, perhaps, with higher frequencies and consumption.
For now, the question remains in the air and NVIDIA is going to take advantage at a time in the market where any strategy seems to have no effect due to the high prices that are handled for consumers.
