It was the week before Christmas, and there wasn’t a single XTX moving in the whole guide – not even at Best Buy.
Yes, the inventory situation is still pretty bad as currently only scalped cards are showing up on Amazon and eBay. Chances are the situation will not ease up until after Christmas, when the holiday shopping spree has passed and stores have had a chance to stock up.
However, you can get the slightly less powerful RX 7900 XT card from a number of sources including Newegg in the US and Overclockers in the UK. In our review, we came to the conclusion that the XT is a solid GPU choice – although its price proximity to the XTX model was a questionable decision by AMD.
December 16 update: Radeon RX 7900 XTX stock is still hard to find online, but some retailers have the XT model available. Much like the RTX 4090, there’s a foolproof way to snag one of these GPUs: buying a pre-built custom PC that includes one.
Falcon Northwest has launched its Radeon RX 7900 XTX promo, as well as iBuyPower and main course. If you’re planning on buying a new GPU to build your own PC (instead of just upgrading an existing desktop), we highly recommend you contact these PC building experts: you’ll get a high-end assembled system from them Best in the business, and it’s usually a little cheaper than buying all the parts yourself, as these companies can buy components in bulk to reduce costs. As someone who could be found elbow deep in a PC case at any point before I started this job, I can attest that buying pre-built equipment is often the way to go.
Thursday update: No stocks yet at major retailers. However, some RX 7900 XT cards (not the XTX!) do pop up if you’re considering getting the slightly less powerful of AMD’s two new cards. Newegg has models from XFX, ASRockand sapphire – all graciously priced at $899.
The XT variant also has pturned up on UK Amazon, albeit slightly above the RRP. If you want a new high-end GPU in a hurry, this might be your best bet – it’s currently impossible to pick up an XTX anywhere near retail unless you’re lucky enough to find one in a physical store track down – which one is definitely worth a try!
Okay really, here’s a proper update: it looks like some UK retailers haven’t put their stock on sale yet. So if you’re based in the UK, keep a close eye on Box and Overclockers.
Unfortunately, there really aren’t any maps available in the US. Oddly enough, we couldn’t find any RX 7900 XTX models on Amazon in either territory, but there are still plenty floating around on eBay at exorbitant prices. If you are in the US and considering importing a card from the UK, remember that most of these UK retailers do not ship directly to America, so you will need a trusted person in the UK to receive and ship the card to you .
A quick update from December 14th: There are no RX 7900 XTX cards available yet. boo, hiss, etc.
As we wrap up the night, we still can’t see much stock for the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX anywhere, and the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT is also sold out online.
At this point, it’s best to look for a few brick-and-mortar electronics retailers that may have some stock on the shelves. Places like Micro Center and Best Buy in the US have separate inventory for their in-store and online orders, so in-store is probably your best bet right now.
All in all, this was an exceptionally good day for AMD, which sold out its stock of RX 7900 XTXs very, very quickly, in contrast to Nvidia’s RTX 4080, which went on sale much earlier in the day and took much longer to sell out be in the US, with the UK still having stocks even now.
People seem to have been talking to their pocketbooks and given AMD a huge win to start the next-gen graphics card war, something we’re happy to see as fierce competition for our dollars is good for all of us in the end.
How Nvidia reacts to this remains to be seen, but we’re definitely keeping an eye out for more stock in the coming days and weeks to help you find the best AMD graphics cards ever for our PCs.
On that note, Christian, Matt and I (John) wish everyone a wonderful evening. Be nice to each other and we’ll see you tomorrow to do it all over again.
I guess we were totally wrong that this isn’t an RTX 4090 situation, right? The RX 7900 XTX seems to be selling out everywhere – a big win for AMD, typically the rowdy outsider of the GPU wars. It’s good to see AMD fans eating well right now.
However, it’s hardly surprising given how much of a fiasco the reveal and launch of Nvidia’s RTX 4000 was. The RTX 4080 12GB’s hasty “unlaunch” boded badly for the future, and RTX 4080 stocks are actually pretty easy to find these days – because nobody wants to buy them. Given that the 4080 16GB is the direct competitor for AMD’s new flagship but costs $200 more at MSRP, it’s really hard to commend it against Team Red’s latest and greatest offering.
Good news! Wait, no, it’s bad news. These scalpers sure move fast – we’re already seeing RX 7900 XTX cards popping up on eBay, at horrendously inflated prices. Most seem to be sitting around the $1,600 mark – if you have that much money to spend, please wait until the RTX 4090 comes back in stock instead – while some are even more ridiculous.
There is an XFX Speedster model available under Buy It Now for the very reasonable (read: totally unreasonable) price of $2,149, double the MSRP. We probably don’t need to tell you this, but avoid these scalped cards like the plague. If you buy one there’s a chance you’ll get sand or a block of wood instead – at best you’ll just get ripped off, at worst you’ll get scammed.
We may be alone in this, but we find it incredibly funny that AMD doesn’t seem to have added any of the new Radeon RX 7000 cards to its own store page. There is a link to affiliated retailers on the amd.com Homepage, but the actual Shop tab on the site only gives you the (still ridiculously and confusingly large) selection of RX 6000 GPUs.
I look very much to US retailers prioritizing physical stores over online stores: cards are reportedly available in stores, with a limited number allocated for online purchases, possibly a move to discourage scalping attempts. If you live near a Micro Center or Best Buy, get there ASAP!
Sad news for UK buyers – it looks like the card isn’t available in the UK yet. Scan and Overclockers are both stock listed, but they are currently marked as “coming soon”. Let’s hope they go live soon!
Keep in mind that if you’re looking for a slightly less powerful GPU in the market, the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT is also on sale today. In terms of value for money, it’s very close to the XTX version: a little less powerful, but also a little cheaper at $899.
B&H has them XFX Radeon RX 7900 XTX SPEEDSTER MERC310 for $1,099. The website says it’s “coming soon” so hopefully more stock will show up. Pro Tip: Click Notify Me to receive a notification when more stock becomes available. It might give you the edge!
micro center doesn’t have any available online, but you can check your local store to see if they have stock here. People looking for other GPUs have had success this way…
best buy seems to have just sold out of the models on offer. We’ll keep an eye on that. If they are back in stock. This sometimes happens on launch day.
Above are all the links to buy the RX 7900 XTX and we’ll search retail locations to find stock.
…and we’re live! The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT is now officially on sale. For our money, it’s the best GPU in the current lineup of next-gen graphics cards; the RTX 4090 is obviously incredible but insanely expensive, the RX 7900 XT is great but sits in an odd position and is only $100 cheaper than its big XTX brother, and the RTX 4080 is…well, this one kinda sucks its current $1,199 MSRP. Let’s hope Nvidia drops the price soon to counter AMD’s new GPUs.
We’re T-minus five minutes from launch, folks. Keep in mind that some retailers may experience website issues due to high traffic. So be patient when spamming the F5 key.
While most of the retailers on our list above don’t yet have visible listings for the RX 7900 XTX, we can assume that most (if not all) have it in stock. If it turns out that a retailer isn’t selling the card at launch for some reason, we’ll remove them from the list until they’re back in stock.
Don’t panic, the card isn’t on sale yet. You can already see deals for the RX 7900 XTX on some retailer sites, but they’re marked as unavailable or (in Best Buy’s case) “sold out,” which feels like a slightly ominous omen.
However, to be honest, we probably won’t see another RTX 4090 situation this time around. AMD seems determined to keep inventories high, with a reported 30,000 units hitting shelves on day one — ironically the same number of units the rival RTX 4080 reportedly sold throughout the last week of November.
The 4080 was a dubious proposition when it came to price, and given AMD’s aggressive pricing of their new flagship, we can’t help but wonder how long it will be before Nvidia relents and implements a price cut.
As we approach release time, we’d like to take a moment to remind you that there may still be scalpers out there trying to loot this card and resell it at a higher price. Some of the third-party GPUs that are for sale already top the $999 base price for AMD’s own model, although you’re getting factory-overclocked performance there.
If these tickets sell out, be patient: don’t go to eBay to try and snag one. AMD seems to be more dedicated to restocking than Nvidia. Even if the RX 7900 XTX is completely sold out in your region, you shouldn’t have to wait long to get your hands on one.
