AMD Radeon RX 7900 GRE gets a price cut and new models

Now in a new Legendary design.

The AMD Radeon RX 7900 GRE graphics card gets a price cut.

We’ve got good news for Team Red fans. AMD has not only started trickling Radeon RX 7900 GRE out in Europe for DIY builders but it’s also discounted the graphics card, too. That’s a pretty big double win, even if you may still struggle to find one in the immediate future.

The GPU has previously been available only as part of prebuilt systems outside of China. AMD has since taken a U-turn and is a little more comfortable with third parties making their own models. That means there should be more coming to the market as time passes. It’s only ever a good thing to have more choice, especially if you’re not keen on Nvidia for whatever reason.

Over in Italy, the XFX reference RX 7900 GRE is now €541. This is €60 cheaper than just two months ago and the lowest price we’ve seen in Europe. Better yet, it’s just €20 more than the RX 7800 XT MSRP while sporting way more cores. Videocardz notes that the same card in Germany and Spain is pricier at €579, which is the new MSRP.

As for new models hitting the market, the first few come from ASRock. ASRock’s take brings two new flavours, including Steel Legend and Challenger. They’re based on the same Navi 31 GPU with 5,120 Stream Processors, but bump the clocks higher to stand out. Steel Legend packs triple-fan cooling to boost speeds up to 2,345MHz, but it’ll cost you a premium €599 for the pleasure. The Challenger is a little cheaper at MSRP, with dual fans and 2,290MHz. Both heatsinks look a treat with a few RGB lights.

AMD’s original price wasn’t fantastic, particularly since Radeon RX 7900 GRE isn’t the best graphics card around. Generally, it performs in between RX 7800 XT and RX 7900 XT. Cutting costs adds tremendous value, and we expect it to offer more upper-mid-range options. Hopefully, more manufacturers will follow suit and we’ll see a good range of retail models to choose from.

It’s worth keeping an eye out for European suppliers who might be able to get their hands on these cards. We don’t expect the stock to last very long since these were originally made for system integrators. Needless to say, don’t hang around if you do spot one.
