AMD is squaring up against the RTX 4080 – and might win

The RTX 4090 is the most significant generational leap we’ve seen from Nvidia, crushing the RTX 3090 and the RTX 3090 Ti with a price tag to match. Before the launch most of us expected AMD to topple this jump, but it won’t. Instead, the new RX 7900 series will compete directly with the RTX 4080.

Frank Azor, the Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions and Marketing at AMD confirmed this during the RDNA 3 revealed in Las Vegas. Frank said the new Radeon RX 7900 XTX is designed to compete with the RTX 4080 and the “primary reason” there weren’t any Nvidia GeForce RTX series GPUs at all in the charts for comparison is because they didn’t have any RTX 4080 benchmark numbers.
