AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT Custom Price Drops $150 Below Its MSRP In China
The VASTARMOR Starry Sky Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics card is a custom variant designed for the Asia Pacific market. The custom graphics card, part of the company’s new RDNA 3 lineup, offers a Navi 31 XT graphics core. The chip includes 84 compute units, which is equivalent to 5,376 cores. The graphics card has lower clock speeds of 2.0 GHz, about 300 MHz less than its XTX version. The card has a 20 GB GDDR6 memory capacity via a 320-bit bus interface. There is also the Infinity Cache which is 80MB, a 16MB difference from the top variant.
The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT custom model graphics card version of VASTARMOR uses metallic, body-reinforcing backplates and premium PCBs. The graphics card is decked out in black and red with a triple fan cooling design with support for smart start and stop. It is also reported to offer RGB breathing effects with its red, blue, and yellow lights.
VASTARMOR models share the same compute units as the original AMD model, with 20 GB of GDDR6 graphics memory, 320-bit wide bus interface, and memory speeds exceeding 20 Gbps. The maximum bandwidth is expected to reach 800 GB/s. Like the AMD model, the VASTARMOR RX 7900 XT comes complete with a dual eight-pin power connector. This is very different to NVIDIA’s power connector, which has twice as many pins as rival AMD. The TBP on the model is 355 W, which is an increase over previous generations. The VASTARMOR RX 7900 XT also supports 4K UHD, HDMI, and PCIe 4.0 connectivity.
Chinese online retailer JD.com sells the Starry Sky Edition VASTARMOR AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT GPU with 20GB of GDDR6 memory for RMB 6,399, which is RMB 1,000 lower than its official Chinese MSRP of RMB 7,399, making it a $150 reduction in price terms. This seems unique to the Asian PC market and likely won’t be sold by a US retailer unless you’re selling it as used or by a second-hand or third-party seller online.
