RX 7800 XT vs. RX 6800 XT: Is the Upgrade Worth It?

RX 7800 XT vs. RX 6800 XT: Is the Upgrade Worth It? - Hermes Advancement
The RX 7800 XT has finally hit the shelves, and with it comes a $500 price tag. Accompanying its release, we've received long-awaited third-party reviews, especially comparing it to its predecessor, the RX 6800 XT – a comparison that AMD seemed reluctant to shed light on.

According to numerous reviewers, the new 7800 XT performs impressively, often matching or slightly surpassing the RX 6800 XT by a margin of 2% to 4%. This revelation, however, introduces a dilemma for potential buyers. Why opt for the pricier 7800 XT when the 6800 XT was recently available on Amazon for $485, compared to the $500 price tag of its successor?

For our recommendation, here's the deal: Keep an eye on the prices of the RX 6800 XT. If you find any models priced below the $500 mark, consider snagging one. On the other hand, if the 6800 XT models are above $500, it might be time to consider the newer 7800 XT.

This choice ensures that you get the best value for your money, whether it's the tried-and-true 6800 XT or the fresh 7800 XT.
