Radeon RX 7900 GRE now available on the European DIY market, no gaming PC purchase necessary

The AMD Radeon RX 7900 GRE, also known as the Golden Rabbit Edition, is a unique variant featuring the Navi 31 XL GPU. This special SKU was initially exclusive to the Chinese market when it launched in July. Initially, DIY sales were only allowed in China, while system integrators around the globe were ones permitted to sell these cards with a requirement that they be part of a complete system. However, this restriction has since evolved, allowing the purchase of RX 7900 GRE cards bundled with just motherboards and power supply units, effectively reducing the overall cost.

Interestingly, in Spain and Romania, the Sapphire RX 7900 GRE card is now available as a separate purchase, eliminating the need to buy an entire gaming PC. These cards are priced at 719.90 EUR, which is at least 120 EUR less expensive than the RX 7900 XT in Europe (according to price comparison tool Geizhals) and 170 EUR cheaper than the RX 7900 XT PULSE from the same store.

Sapphire Pulse Series (Spain/PCComponentes):

  • Radeon RX 7900 XT: €889.90 (+€170)
  • Radeon RX 7900 GRE: €719.90
  • Radeon RX 7800 XT:  €579.90 (-€140)

Regarding the specifications of the graphics card itself, it boasts the Navi 31 GPU with 5120 Stream Processors and features 16GB of GDDR6 memory, operating on a 256-bit memory bus at 18 Gbps. Notably, this memory configuration closely resembles that of the RX 7800 XT, which is based on the full Navi 32 GPU with 3840 cores. Both models have similar power requirements, but the 7900 GRE offers a 33% increase in cores and costs precisely 34% more on the European market, amounting to 182 EUR more than the least expensive RX 7800 XT.

There are some noteworthy considerations to bear in mind. These cards are sold without the fancy packaging typically associated with retail graphics cards. Instead, they are shipped with replacement packaging since they arrive in bulk at the retailer’s warehouse. However, this product is sold directly by one of the largest Spanish retailers and still complies with the full 2-year warranty conditioned by EU regulations.

It’s important to note that only four RX 7900 GRE cards are known to be available on the market, and three of them are overclocked. Consequently, the clock speeds and power specifications provided should be regarded as reference values. The PULSE model which is offered by these stores has lower clocks than NITRO+, reportedly at 1925/2290 MHz (game/boost) which is still higher than reference clocks.
