AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT Discounted To Just $469

The AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT entered the market in September 2023, priced at $499. Its competitive stance was challenged by the January release of the Radeon RX 7900 GRE, featuring a Navi 32 GPU complete with 3840 stream processors on a 256-bit bus and 16GB of GDDR6 memory, priced around $549.

The competition, along with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 40 SUPER update, seems to have prompted an adjustment in pricing strategy for the RX 7800 XT, with retailers now offering it at more competitive rates. Navig currently lists the Radeon RX 7800 XT at $468.99, marking its first significant price drop. Interestingly, this offer is available through Newegg's eBay store instead of its official storefront. This price drop puts the RX 7800 XT $30 below AMD's suggested retail price (MSRP) and $50 below the MSRP set by PowerColor for its custom variant, the Hellhound model.

AMD recently adjusted the pricing of the Radeon RX 7700 XT, dropping it to $419. In contrast, the RX 7800 XT hasn't experienced a price drop as quickly. The disparity can be attributed to retailers selling the 7800 XT faster than the 7700 XT – some German retailers report ten times higher sales for the 7800 XT.

However, the situation is changing rapidly, viz The 7700 XT is available for under $400. In some stores, while the 7800 XT has been spotted at $480. This indicates a rapidly narrowing gap between the two. It seems that AMD may need to re-evaluate its pricing strategy to keep up with changing market demands.
