PC enthusiasts can get their hands on AMD’s Radeon RX 7800 XT card at the lowest price its ever been, competing well with Nvidia’s latest hardware.
- AMD’s RX 7800 XT graphics cards have been reduced to their lowest price ever, making them more attractive for mid-range PC upgrades.
- The price drop comes after the release of Nvidia’s RTX 4070 SUPER series, which is $100 more expensive.
- The 7800 XT series has been popular due to its price and availability, despite competition from Nvidia and similar specs.
AMD’s well-received series of RX 7800 XT graphics cards have just seen a price cut, bringing them down to the lowest price they’ve ever been at around $480, dropping into a price range that makes them more attractive for PC enthusiasts considering an upgrade to a mid-range current-gen card. These price drops for AMD’s 7800 XT come just a few weeks following the release of its newest competitor, Nvidia’s RTX 4070 SUPER series, which sits roughly at a $100 higher price.
Though opinions on the latest generation of GPU technology are widely varied among critics and gamers alike, it’s clear that competition between the two hardware giants has been tight lately. AMD’s top-range RX 7900 XTX and its slightly more affordable cousin, the RX 7900 XT, boast some impressive horsepower at a retail price that’s far more comfortable than that which is offered by the competition. The differences in technical specs between AMD and Nvidia’s recent competing lines of graphics cards are far less broad than their respective price gaps though, and while there’s still plenty of choice for PC gamers, AMD’s 7800 XT series has been wildly popular since its release thanks to its price and availability.

However, new price drops for the RX 7800 XT further drive up the bang for its buck, with some models of the card falling to a price of around $480 over on Newegg. AMD’s 7800 XT series seized an edge in performance over its previous competitor in the 4060 Ti and retains its value as a powerful mid-range card despite its specifications more recently being challenged by the 4070 SUPER. ASRock’s Challenger model of the Radeon 7800 XT was the first to get such a cut from its original ~$500 price tag, though GIGABYTE’s slightly chunkier variant of the card more recently followed suit as well. Gamers can find the prices for the two GPUs at $479.99 for the GIGABYTE Radeon RX 7800 XT GAMING OC and $489.99 for the ASRock Challenger Radeon RX 7800 XT.
Gamers looking to grab one of these cards can take advantage of the low prices by using promo code SSDN2992 with the GIGABYTE model and code BYADN28222 with the ASRock model. The cards currently come with redeemable game codes for Massive Entertainment’s new open-world title called Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, though fans will have to act fast to claim these extra game codes before the promotion expires tomorrow.
A similar sweetener tossed in with many AMD products over the past several months includes a free download code for Starfield, with AMD and Starfield partnering up to optimize the game for select AMD hardware. It’s worth noting that not every product from AMD comes with a download code for the game included, and access to the code may depend on factors such as where a product was bought from and when it was purchased.
