The actual Amazon Prime Day 2023 sales days haven't even hit us properly yet, but that's not stopped Amazon or other retailers from already offering early deals beforehand. Today we have quite the discount on one of the best graphics cards available and also AMD's current top-of-the-line flagship GPU with retailers offering $150 off of the usual retail price of this card.

With the aid of coupons and codes, you can obtain the powerful Gigabyte Radeon RX 7900 XTX Gaming OC for just $899 from either Amazon or Newegg. Newegg has also marked this GPU as price protected, so if the cost of this card falls in their own Fantastech sales event they will refund the difference automatically to you. We've double-checked the previous prices of this card and can confirm that this is the lowest-ever price that's been recorded on both PC Partpicker and the Camelizer.

The Gigabyte Radeon RX 7900 XTX comes with a typical clock speed of 2330MHz and has the ability to boost to 2525MHz in games, and also comes with a whopping 24GB of fast GDDR6 VRAM which should be more than enough for any video game and also offering reassuring future-proofing for the rapid rise in VRAM usage of future AAA games.

The RX 7900 XTX runs at a typical clock speed of 2330MHz and has the ability to boost to 2525MHz. See our review of the RX 7900 XTX for more information.

Benchmarking: 4K Ultra Settings

The Gigabyte Radeon RX 7900 XTX Gaming OC is an expensive GPU, and if you're even thinking about forking out for this card you really want to pair it with a high-end system to get the most out of it. As you can see from our benchmarking tests above and in the review of the RX 7900 XTX this card excels in 4K gaming and has even caught up a little in ray tracing performance compared the Nvidia's offerings, but if you're only going to be using this GPU for 1440p gaming and below it might be more value for money going for something a little cheaper such as an RX 7900 XT or Nvidia RTX 4070, or even last generations RX 6950 XT.

    Wouldn't touch a gigabyte GPU with a 10ft pole even if it's 50 cents.

    Yes and??? It's when it's working is not the problem.

    It's the fact they wormed their way out of selling a defective product that has the potential of damaging your motherboard and then denying a valid warranty claim due to a design defect on top of it.

    I have heard nothing but horror stories for YEARS out of gigabytes RMA process. Deny deny deny. Accept return then do nothing and return it 3 times in a row. Give another customers defective used card in hopes it will work on your system.

    Tech channels are dropping sponsorship by them and Asus for a reason.

    Just completely shameful. It should not be rewarded.

    Just saying that considering my apparent "luck" having two cards that never gave me issues, I'd take the 50 cents deal for a top card from that company :D

    I'm sure you would use the defective gigabyte PSU they were giving away in the GPU bundle.

    Doesn't mean it's smart.

    While it doesn't negate RMA issues and the like their Radeon cards don't have that PCB carve out that their 30/40 series seem to. Unsure why the PCBs would be better designed for AMD, but maybe they're just using an "older" design or some such.

    There's a reason why not many want a Gigabyte product and it is somewhat justified, I'd say.

    That being said, I think this is the right price point of all 7900XTX'es. I'm sorry to say this, but given the kerfuffle around their VR performance, I can't say these are worth their price to me.

    When my 5800X3D & 6900XT duo outperforms, consistently and with no questions, people with 7800X3Ds and 7900XTXs, it can't cost more than the 6900XT in my eyes. At least for VR enthusiasts.

    AV1 encoding support is nice and so is the 24GB VRAM, but they need to fix the VR issues for me to recommend this to any enthusiast.

    EDIT: Maybe there is hope?

    They've merged their testing branch and have relased the VR fixes now. I'll ask friends to give them a try and report back, since no decent tech-sites review VR. *wink wink*

    Regards.

    I'm holding out until the 7900XTX is $799 and they fix VR.
