Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT revealed, plus more details on FSR 3

By - | Views: 40,723

AMD just announced the Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT Graphics Cards, and they're giving out more details on FidelityFX Super Resolution 3 (FSR 3).

Of course availability is the big question. AMD said to expect them both on September 6th from partners including ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Gigabyte, PowerColor, Sapphire, Vastarmor, XFX and Yeston. Plus they will be selecting them direct on the same date.

Here's the specs sheets AMD gave out:

As for FidelityFX Super Resolution 3 (FSR 3), AMD have a new blog post up with even more details. The first titles to get it will be Forspoken and Immortals of Aveum some time in "early fall". With other titles confirmed to be adding it later including Cyberpunk 2077, Space Marine 2, Frostpunk 2, Squad, Starship Troopers Extermination, Avatar Frontiers of Pandora, Alters, Crimson Desert, Like a Dragon Infinite Wealth and Black Myth Wukong.

The key addition in FSR3 is frame generation that AMD say "uses an enhanced version of AMD Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF) optical flow technology and temporal game data such as motion vectors to generate additional high-quality frames for a higher framerate in supported games, up to 2x2". Useful for games that you want to bump up to 4K with Ray Tracing.

One thing they've address is ensuring it doesn't impact the UI of a game, so they include "UI processing included as an integral part of our solution to minimize any impact frame generation may have on the in-game interface" and FSR3 also includes the latest version of their temporal upscaling that's integrated with the new frame generation.

Another addition in FSR 3 is a "Native AA" quality mode that allows you to use FSR 3 without applying any upscaling but still gives you the high-quality anti-aliasing and sharpening of FSR. It will come with a performance cost though, but might look better than what AA some games provide out of the box.

AMD has also committed to keeping it open source and will be added to the AMD FidelityFX SDK.

Quoting: LoftyHonestly AAA gaming is pretty much dead to me right now, it's not the Size of the games, the lacklustre optimisation, the exorbitant pricing models on unfinished releases with DLC being used as a patch, or the not actually owning it, or even the DRM anti-cheat spyware.. let alone the way these companies treat their staff. It's actually because most (not all) of these games frankly suck.
I agree. I'm looking into building a new rig soon and I was looking for a recent game to benchmark the whole stuff. Turns out there's no interesting title for me that's less than 2-3 years old. I'd want to try Cyberpunk 2077 now that it's less bug-heavy but turns out it's still 60 bucks and with the upcoming extension being quite pricey as well, I guess it's a no-go for me.
I slapped a 7900XT in my system after pulling out my 3080 RTX. Instantly enjoyed having just normal desktop stuff run smoother. Randomly(not really) Wayland started working in Debian as well. So, if you're currently running an nvidia card, upgrading just for some bug fixes in software and smoother desktop usage, the upgrade is worth it! One problem I had with the upgrade though; the 7900XT was vastly larger than the 3080 RTX. Funny enough, the PCB was the same size, but the heat sink just hung off of it about 4 inches further. It came with a bracket to stabilize it better... GPUs are just getting silly in size.
I am planning on building a full AMD setup indeed. Nvidia is such a frustration for me... Being more into low-consumption setups I will go for a Ryzen 7 7700 and Radeon RX 6600 that will be upgraded if 8000 series is worth the investment.

Congrats for switching to AMD.

I went for even bigger 7900 XTX and Sapphire Nitro+ model for it is especially huge. But the upside is that it's really silent and runs relatively cool even under heavy load. So massive heat sink is useful.
Mine is the XFX 7900XT Ultra. Working with Amazon right now (2nd attempt) to see if I can get that tasty Starfield code so I don't have to buy the premium version of that haha.
