The upcoming RX 7800 XT launches today, but what time is it expected to release?

The RX 7800 XT card joins RX 7700 XT as new mid-range members of the RDNA 3 lineup. Anyone happy to spend below $500 should therefore be excited for this release date. There have already been announcements of custom cards from Sapphire, ASUS and Gigabyte, sure you know where to buy them. MSI is yet to confirm it will release its own custom card.

RX 7800 XT expected release time – what time could it launch?

Earlier than expected, the AMD RX 7800 XT has been officially listed across several sites. So far, we’ve seen XFX Radeon and Gigabyte cards launch across Amazon and Best Buy. So, if you think the RX 7800 XT is worth it, make sure you jump on sites like Amazon and Newegg before they completely sell out.

We’ve listed the specs for the RX 7800 XT below for those who need reminding one more time. We’ve also compared the RX 7800 to RX 6800 XT if you’re wondering whether it’s worth the upgrade from RDNA 2.

Excitingly, the RX 7800 XT is releasing the same day as Starfield. Already looking like one of the best games of 2023, we’re expecting a great deal of fans to finally upgrade their PC setups for the RPG from Bethesda Studios. The AMD partnership with Bethesda means the RX 7800 XT could easily be one of the best GPUs for Starfield since the game is specially optimised for AMD PC components. Time will tell, but at least you have a better idea of when the RX 7800 XT could be released on Wednesday.
