AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT now under MSRP in US and EU

Newegg has started selling its first RDNA3 desktop GPU under official suggested retail price. 

The Radeon RX 7900 series debuted at $899 and $999 price points, respectively for the XT and XTX variants. The latter, especially the reference model is hardly available, and it is politely speaking not a very popular choice because of the discovered vapor chamber issues.

AMD RX 7900 XT, on the other hand, has been in stock at almost every retailer, and in many cases sold at MSRP ($999). However, one can already find it at a price of $879.99, so $20 under MSRP. One of the first stores to implement such price is Newegg, but thus far only for one XFX MBA (Made by AMD) design:

Around two weeks ago, the RX 7900 XT started to lose value in EU markets. The card has dropped from its €1049 launch price to €999 in less than two weeks. Another two weeks later the card can be found for a further €20 less. This means that the price has already been reduced by 6.7%.

Given what we know about thermal throttling of AMD MBA designs, the XT variant with cut-down Navi 31 GPU is not affected. The RX 7900 XT SKU will now have to compete with the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti GPU which is set to launch later today.
